    Well this got out of control quickly. Italy under full quarantine, The British Health secretary tested positive, Iran in chaos, stock markets plummet, oil prices drop 25%. It's remarkable how European nations can be so incompetent.

    Itís going to run itís course. People have probably already gotten it and donít know.


    Itíll be around for months before it goes away.

    There wonít be a vaccine that takes years. Then itíll go away on its own because itíll infect to many people and theyíll be immune.

    Itís not nothing but itís not going to be another bubonic plague.

    They predict just less worse than Spanish flu 1918. Or a really extreme flu outbreak.

    What are the odds that Tom Hanks plays himself in the movie version of this virus 5 years from now?

    The response in England has been relaxed. The government isn't really doing anything a friend called the health services saying he might has it, they just asked him has he had contact with anyone whose got it, he said no they shut the phone in his face.

    European countries & the US need to follow the steps South Korea, Taiwan and Singapore took. Test as many people, randomly if need be. Isolate those who have got it and go from there.

    The stock markets are taking an absolute pummelling though, worst day in London since 1987.

    The Cleveland clinic just developed a test that gets results in 8 hours as opposed to 3/4 days.

    Iím going to guess that for the next week or two this will be the story, then once there is a plateau or decline, itís over.

    Iíd also guess that the mortality rate will be around 1 or 1.5% when itís all said and done.

    Any takers on that bet? Iím going 1.3%
