Europe closes borders, schools and restaurants/bars.
« on: March 17, 2020, 03:28:03 am »
The shutdown of Europe expanded drastically on Saturday as more countries shuttered businesses, schools, locked up borders and chased people off streets and into their homes in a race to contain the growing threat of the coronavirus.

Spain became the second country in Europe, after Italy, to impose strict limits on public life, telling everyone to stay indoors, with few exceptions. As cases soared nationwide, the authorities confirmed that the prime minister’s wife had been infected. In Germany all stores except supermarkets will be shut as well.

Currently, only the UK has yet  to follow EU guidelines.

Anger mounts over UK government’s decision to keep schools open

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson faced a backlash on Monday over his decision to keep schools open, with angry parents keeping their children at home and complaining that other countries were doing more to stop the spread of coronavirus. Britain has reported 1,372 confirmed cases of coronavirus and 35 deaths, fewer than in Italy, Spain and France, where schools have been shut, though the British numbers are expected to rise. Johnson’s spokesman said the scientific advice was that school closures were not a step the government should be taking at this time, but a growing number of parents are refusing to send their children to school.

A 16-year-old boy is now on a ventilator due to the corona virus, his parents warning others to keep their children indoors and doctors describing 'war-like' medical conditions. :sad:

What I would like to see from all the stats that are bandied around is, how many total infections occurred, how many recoveries and the total still infected per country.
There is no known medical cure for stupidity!

Italy's got a 6% mortality rate, and we expect that 70% of the entire population will contract the virus.
(741 million x0,7)x6%=31 million in Europe.

Thanks, the media should also make this more well-known, it gives a better picture overall.

Macron declaring nation is in a state of war, condemning all social gatherings and closing the entire country down.

So, you just applied Italy's fatality rate to all of Europe?  How scientific.  A good example of the kind of BS fear mongering that is driving the panic.

Macron declaring nation is in a state of war, asks all citizens to prepare their white flags.
