This is No Time to Die - says James Bond

Yes he's seen off despots, meglomaniacs, the KGB and a Duran Duran theme song but has 007
finally met his match with the Coronavirus villain, Covid-19 ?

Shaken but not disturbed - we will have to see . . . . . . . .

I would like it, but cinema's are among those that be loosing a lot of money on this, they might need some proper blockbusters for if this is over.

Also the manage pretty wel these days to prevent good quality rips from leaking before Blu-ray release, doing a digital distribution would mean the movie would be on tons of P2P sites the same days and a lot of people would rather download a proper copy for free than pay 20,-

So yeah, great. But not going to happen.

Re: Coronavirus

So there is no problem going to Milan and back to Zürich for example with the train? But for Italians living in Lombardy its forbidden to travel here? ( unless they work in Tessin )

I believe you need a special permission to travel to and from Milan, not 100% sure. I read last night (in the Corriere della Sera) that there are no checkpoints in Milano, but you should have a GOOD work-related reason to go to or leave the city.

Here: https://www.corriere.it/cronache/20_...0a276fc4.shtml

It's a "fluid" article, so some content may change, but in brief, it says (excuse the mediocre Google translation):

"Signing of the decree that closes 14 provinces «Constraint to avoid any movement» in Lombardy and in 14 provinces of Veneto, Emilia Romagna, Piedmont, Marche. Prime Minister Conte signs a decree that limits the possibility of movement in the areas most affected by the Coronavirus. It is not an "absolute ban", he explains: it will be possible to move for work, emergencies and health reasons. But the police will be able to stop citizens and ask them why they are moving to the areas most at risk. "I take political responsibility" for these decisions: "We will make it," says Conte late at night. Last night many left Milan for the south from Garibaldi station."

Also here: https://www.corriere.it/politica/20_...0a276fc4.shtml

Translation: "On the night between Saturday and Sunday, the Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte signed a decree which immediately imposes new restrictions on the movement of people until April 3, due to the Coronavirus emergency, in Lombardy and in some provinces of Veneto, Emilia Romagna and Piedmont. Entry and exit from these territories are allowed only for serious and "proven" reasons, of work or family. The possibility of returning home is guaranteed. Those in quarantine will not be able to move in any way. The provinces concerned, in addition to all of Lombardy (GO TO THE MAP) , said the Prime Minister, are: Parma, Piacenza, Rimini, Reggio-Emilia, Modena, Pesaro and Urbino, Venice, Padua, Treviso, Alessandria, Verbano- Cusio-Ossola, Novara, Vercelli and Asti. In total, these measures will affect over a quarter of the Italian population."

Note: they don't mention "Milano" specifically, instead the talk about Lombardy. Milano is the capital of the Lombardy region.

The article says that the police MAY check you. Maybe they run random checks at train stations?

Re: Coronavirus

Oops. Mkay...Sports? I am turned off the gyms for a while, I think, but work out at home. Vitamines? Running (will restart that, when it stops pouring)? Probiotics?

Sleep! Major immunity boost for fending off infections..How is everyone sleeping?

I gotta say kids are anxious, understandably.

Re: Coronavirus

Vitamin D supplements may be a good idea if you’re not already taking them

Re: Coronavirus

We are. Vit C in grams since it really works for us. But got ill after zinc this morning, sorry for tmi. The pill just changes the ph of my stomach too fast, whatever agents are used to bind the zinc. Is anyone taking zinc that would stay in their stomach and not come out immediately?

Re: Coronavirus

Wow .. The price of oil..

Couple of hundred chf cheaper for 1000l of heating oil than I paid a few months ago ..

Time to fill your tanks and spend the saving on pasta, toilet roll and hand cleaner.
