    2019-nCoV - VERY CRITICAL SITUATION. !DANGER!

    That’s the biggest point to stress. Cases are confirmed cases of which have had a test conducted. The true number of cases is much higher.

    2019-nCoV - VERY CRITICAL SITUATION. !DANGER!

    Herd/Community immunity is still a very grey area. It is still not fully understood that there will be immunity across populations from this. Also a possible sub strain may have been found of which is taking much longer than normal to clear the body. One report suggest a length of 49 days...

    What to do next?

    Go for the cyan, you won't be disappointed by that part of the spectrum regardless of where it sits. Just before you go for it, be sure you do own 488 first. If mostly blue and truly 488nm then 492nm will look drastically different.

    2019-nCoV - VERY CRITICAL SITUATION. !DANGER!

    I'm sure hoping for some sense of normality again soon. Just keep an eye out. I never felt that ill at the start, in fact most cold/flu symptoms developed during when the pleurisy started. Before that I wouldn't of suspected flu at all. You probably don't have it, but I'm not going to fall in...

    2019-nCoV - VERY CRITICAL SITUATION. !DANGER!

    Yes, I had similar experiences when I was still out and about which I now know I probably shouldn't of been. Had some giving some very odd looks. Isolation requirements didn't actually cover me at the time. Be careful though Peter, this virus does not show up in everyone like you would expect...

    There have been health workers dying from this. The percentage of the deaths being key workers is unknown to me unless someone spends the time working it out. As for homeless, i'm hoping that many are being sheltered at a time like this.

    My workplace donated some PPE to the NHS recently, and it was a nice thing to see. Keep it up Seoul, good work but more importantly stay safe.

    2019-nCoV - VERY CRITICAL SITUATION. !DANGER!

    The UK lost another 563 people today so far. Yesterday was 381 deaths. We're at 2352 now apparently, yet due to lack of testing we only have around 10% of your confirmed cases.

    265nm lasers for SARS-CoV-2

    Normally I would look at ideas like this with great speculation, but right now I agree. Hit it with everything we have.

    Just had our local supermarket shut down. A member of the public went in, apparently had a major coughing fit and suffered a heart attack. Should not of been in public at all...

    2019-nCoV - VERY CRITICAL SITUATION. !DANGER!

    Leaders are remembered ultimately by how to handle disasters. Churchill was remembered for his stance in WW2, and Thatcher for the Falklands for an example. Neither were the best leaders, but they took charge and came out victorious. In many years time people won't care about the little things...

    Yes our Prime Minister, Health Secretary and Chief Medical Adviser are now all isolating. The medical adviser is precautionary

    2019-nCoV - VERY CRITICAL SITUATION. !DANGER!

    My concern is that little is known on how effective the immune system is regarding giving us immunity to multiple infections. Repeat contractions are possible and are documented. So if that is the case, it doesn't have to mutate much to do more damage. But for the vaccine purposes it is...

    Well, its not just Italy anymore. Death tolls are rising.

    Please shield yourself Len and take care. Be careful and limit exposure to people if possible. I sincerely hope you get through the outbreak.
