Clean bum juice from rowing machine at gym - Check
Is that a known tranmission vector? I may have to rethink my work clothing strategy.

They tested some children who had the virus, in a mild form, in China.

They found evidence of virus shedding in the faeces of these children two weeks after they had recovered and were visibly asymptomatic.

Probably best not to lick the gym machine seats.

All fluid exchange must be treated with caution.. Bum juice particularly so :-)

The gym is full of fluids .. lovely .. Heading there soon..

Re: Coronavirus

The CZ uni closure was hilarious. "Holiday shift grid for personnel" to make the Depts. semi-functional. An hour later "Oops, crisis shift grid (that is in fact the same as the holiday personnel shift grid)".

Is there another reason to go to the gym?

He meant "lift", not lick.

I usually go for lifting. Licking only on Sunday.

Of course it isn't. However, singling out Chinese people in this way is racist, and is likely to fuel racism among the idiots.
Don't de daft- China is among the worst affected.
It's just stats and risk assessment.

American pants or British pants? Either way that's going to be a problem for me.

Great! Thank you for the news. Miniskirts no good then? It is 17 degrees, too warm for the virus, I know, but still.

Do they say that the virus spreads by eating loud with one's mouth open? Was curious.

Chance that if you meet somebody from Norway that he/she is infected is a lot higher. Even Swiss and Danish people have a higher chance of being infected.

Still a coughing Chinese at McDonalds would stir more people than a coughing Norwegian at the other side of the same restaurant.

Wearing skirts was found to be an effective means of disease control years ago. Statistics from the 19th century show that Scottish soldiers on campaign were less likely to die from illness than their counterparts from the other parts of the then UK. Consider today why women are more likely to survive covid-19 than men.

Still common sense to avoid anywhere where large amounts of Chinese or other mass-affected nationals are known to congregate.

A bit hard when living in a country where infection on percentage is almost 50% higher than in China.

New numbers just released.

Total: Cases 651 of which 32 await result reference lab, 3 dead and 3 recovered.

I'm very curious about Italy, yesterdays numbers did not include new infections in Lombardia but only the other less hit regions, so if todays number does includes the one from today and yesterday I'd be surprised if it is less than 2.000

So if I'm wearing a mini-skirt and a mini-strip
and accidently let one rip
will the air be injected
and those around me infected?

Re: Coronavirus

People say there are no stupid questions, but there are right questions made to the wrong people. If only famous people had half the brains of a simple football coach on coronavirus and urged to ask the right people the right questions. What a man...respect!

Perfectly timed with him giving his nose a good going over!

But proper order on his side, good to see some people in the public eye know their limitations.
