Re: Ticino beats Geneva!

Every lab test goes through Geneva so you could say that the first Corina virus case was confirmed there.

Yep, was gonna say the same thing (not the bit about the rain though ). Been sneezing for months now - am I lucky my neighbours haven't had me conducted under escort yet?

McTavge, you are encouraging anti-foreignism! Tom will simply claim, it was brought by a frontalieri. Shame on you both.
Only blaming the English!

The question is. Who is it? Is it you?

What about sniffing powders of surfaces?
You mean like snorting coke of a hookers ass?

Re: Ticino beats Geneva!

I managed to buy two boxes of surgical masks after trying for two months now in 10+ online stores.

Will start wearing them on trains. I know somebody will say it's not that effective (not covering the eyes etc...) but I rather protect myself a little bit...

The other day a lady stood up ready to get of train and at that moment coughed on everyone like a shower...

Re: Ticino beats Geneva!

Actually I got a whole lot of those masks. I wonder, do they help with hayfever-like problems? (I'm new to this problem )

Possibly. Might prevent pollen from entering nose and mouth, if they are fine enough to restrict the pollen. Will still get pollen in the eyes.

but it's best to cure from within, I did some googling for my brother and was wondering if I should go the "bee pollen" route, it's kinda like "vaccine", getting your body used to pollen so it doesn't attack like crazy.

My newly emerged problem is rather mild. A little suffering does not harm anyone

Considering the emergency tablets I'm supposed to carry with me 24/7, anything "bee" does not appeal to me (apart from their honey).

Donít you always have to open the loo door to get out?
It is very easy to get out without touching the door handle, Iíve been doing it for years.
I usually pole vault over the door.

Not the loo door. But the entrance to the toilet door. Some have an automatic sliding door. Some dont have a door at all.

Not really. The pollen gets to the eyes.Might help with the pollen up the nose thing. But simply wear sun glasses. People will think you are doing a Michael Jackson!

Re: Coronavirus

by the way, this might be another thing I'm prepared to be laughed at, buttons, tram door buttons, train door buttons, lift buttons, they don't get disinfected from time to time, I'm gonna bring a used-up ball pen, take the cap off, press those buttons, put the cap back on and get on-off trains...

because rubbing your hands with hand-disinfections dry up your hands, kills as well the good bacterias and makes u easier infected, i heard...

That just superstition. Do a nasal wash out with a sterile salt solution-available at pharmacies.And dont use paper tissues. Use cloth.

Re: Coronavirus

It seems fitting that this virus originated in China-a land that has absolutely no respect for animal life.

Those liquids donít compare with vigorous hand washing. Primarily as people only spread the stuff over their hands, they donít rub it into the nooks and crannies. It is better than nothing but nowhere as good as a vigorous hand wash.

Re: Coronavirus

This subject gets omtatsat so excited, he even forgot how to multi-quote. Worse, he needs two separate posts to answer one single question.
