Quite a liquid market already, yes putting on here.

Should have kept my trap shut.   Has gone in from 1.5 to 1.4 and not a cent laid by me.  Now I just have to sweat the official announcement and some thief coming along to steal my money...

Life in China during Covid 19.   
I will get around to writing my account at some point . 
Here we have been dealing with it for approximately a month and I believe what China has done to contain it is exemplary and I doubt any other county in the world could have put the whole place in lockdown to contain it as China has done

Someone mentioned that that the UK couldn’t close down all the schools in the country  to help contain it , but  that’s exactly what China has done.  At this time schools are due to reopen on March 16th but that could be extended as it has been on 2 previous occasions

Good man Craig. I've been waiting to get the inside story from from our China correspondent.

Get backing Cheltenham cancellation on betfair please.  

I did at 3.70.  No doubt there is a good chance it goes ahead but those thinking there is almost no chance this gets cancelled have their head in the sand.  This is already a pandemic but strong containment is working in China.  The same will have to happen everywhere, if cases continue to rise then strong containment in the UK is incoming.

It doesn't say that anywhere in your link, and it seems a bold claim so early in the lifetime of this virus.

Gaohong Sheng et al. [20] have shown that viral infection can increase the risk of pulmonary fibrosis.Xie et al. [21] found that 45% of patients
showed signs of pulmonary fibrosis within one month after being infected with SARS-CoV.Hui et al. [22] found that 36% and 30% of patients
infected with SARS-CoV developed pulmonary fibrosis at 3 and 6 months after infection

Those are the results from SARS and not from COVID19. 

This is what the latest article in Lancet says on COVID19

A reticular pattern associated with bronchiolectasis and irregular interlobular or septal thickening were also noted to increase progressively from the second week. These findings indicated the appearance of interstitial changes, suggesting the development of fibrosis. However, since the natural history of COVID-19 pneumonia is yet to be fully explored, it is too early to label these lung changes as irreversible fibrosis

Can this really now be stopped?  Hospitalization rates even of 15% are going to overwhelm services.  Stockmarkets in Asia currently getting smashed, for the fourth day in a row.  This is here until a vaccine is widely available, probably in a years time.

It started in the Wuhan province - so far less than 1% of people who live in the Wuhan province got it and over 80% of people who do get it don't suffer any serious issues; so a bit of perspective maybe.


If you really want to have fun seeing how it could develop then I (and my wife) would recommend watching Contagion (2011); Hollywood is always going to Hollywood but when my wife was studying epidemiology in her degree their lecturer suggested this film and said it did a pretty good job at showing a realistic pandemic.

The WHO are producing daily updates

https://www.who.int/docs/default-source/coronaviruse/situation-reports/20200226-sitrep-37-covid-19.pdf?sfvrsn=6126c0a4_4

They are publishing research, data and all sorts right now if people are interested.

There is a FAQ here

https://www.who.int/news-room/q-a-detail/q-a-coronaviruses

Turns out snoking is not an effective way to stop the spread of COVID-19.
