    It will be harder for men to deal with this,no sport,no pub for a pint,no gym,no cinema,when I phoned my cousin and mentioned this she agreed too her husband loved sport a pint with the boys.A lot of lost men stuck indoors with their other half what fun for months

    PS. Where is the Chinese equivalent of a Greta Thunberg?
    Interestingly, Iran and Italy, two of the hardest hit countries, has large numbers of Chinese workers and technicians there working on various Chinese-sponsored infrastructure projects as part of China's Belt and Road initiative. It seems that whenever China builds something throughout the world they bring in their own workers.

    When you think about it there is a lot of pressure on delivery drivers,staff who work in supermarket and the abuse their getting off people because of this chaos.What happens when they fall I'll and cannot work all these selfish people out there had better realise without their hard graft keeping up with demands.If they catch this virus who is left to do these jobs.Anymore of this grab grab then rationing will have to be introduced or there will be millions dying of starvation.

    When it comes to the issue of panic buying we are all part of the problem i'm afraid, we were all assured that supplies could be maintained if everybody was level headed and did not scurry round the supermarkets like headless chickens...so of course that's exactly what happened
    I was chatting to the manager of our local Spa shop and he said that deliveries were slowing down and being cancelled..

    He also said that this morning the Spa delivery driver mentioned that each day about 5 drivers are sent home due to a high temperature... they are each checked each morning before they are allowed into the place !!

    Oh and the food production factories are quickly running out of cardboard and plastic packaging-all bought from ... CHINA !!

    How are everybody dealing with things at the moment,trying to stay sane.I spoke to my friend last night I said how are you coping because your always out doing something.Big changes instead of using public transport take the car shopping.No going to a cafe for a cup of coffee,no meeting up with relations.Stop getting books from the library.No takeaways
    Our life has been turned upside down,this could go on for 18 months

    It could all kick off in about 3 to 4 weeks .

    Iíve seen predictions of possible riots when all the supplies are low ..

    Check around .. some supermarkets have already sold out antibacterial handwash , toilet rolls and hand gel .

    The big Tesco has nearly sold out of paracetamol and ibuprofen tablets the other day ..
