Re: covid 19 closing beaches, any more to report?

bTW...influenza killed 25.000 people in 2017/2018...and Life kept normal. This is nothing like the seasonal flu, this is a highly infectious SARS variant that is spreading like wildfire and that no one has any resistance to. But I hope the people outside of the medical field who are comparing this ...

Re: Covid-19 - How does it affect your kite-life?

The target infection rate (yes, you heard it right) is at least 60% because at this level and above (assuming, as seems very likely, that those who recover will have developed some immunity) in future outbreaks the transmission rate would be less than 1 thus not developing into another epidemic. . ...

Re: Covid-19 - How does it affect your kite-life?

Stay safe everyone, this looks like it is going to be bad. It does seem that the seriousness of this epidemic is finally sinking into UK public brains. My wife is medical so it's very likely that I'm going to be infected. Fortunately I have no preexisting health conditions * * Approx. death rates f...

Re: Covid-19 - How does it affect your kite-life?

It is a pandemic; a world wide epidemic. You will probably get it, you will probably give it to others. By definition. You will, also, probably barely notice it if you start relatively healthy. The others you give it to, the same. Do you have any idea how many viruses there are circulating at any g...

Re: Covid-19 - How does it affect your kite-life?

I agree that if everyone panics then society will stop functioning and the effect of that could be worse than the virus itself. The main issue I have is wreckless idiots, of which there are a disproportionate number in the UK, who seem to think anyone who is concerned about this pandemic is overrea...

Re: Covid-19 - How does it affect your kite-life?

Haha are you saying I have nothing to worry about? As stores are being stripped and economies are faltering? The conditions for war are being met. The virus? I am least worried about that. I am worried about what all the monkeys around me are doing in response to it. Before you know it there will b...

Re: Covid-19 - How does it affect your kite-life?

... ... Old people dying is sad but that is actually an economic benefit. When the young are dying at the same 10%, then worry. @ kiteyk...

Re: Covid-19 - How does it affect your kite-life?

Exactly, if you see the stats: 30 times higher mortality rate than classic seasonal flu, infection rate 2 times higher. In France, seasonal flu does affect between 2 and 6 millions persons every year: almost 10% of the population. And the current mortality forecasts are based on people getting the ...
