    Sensationalist reporting by the news media is getting everybody in a state, sure it's a serious situation and sensible precautions need to be observed but i blame the reporting of it all for getting everybody in a tizzy. Try and resist the temptation to watch every news bulletin and allow your mind to switch off and wind down occasionally.
    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 !!

    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.

    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.
