Pete-MK has me a bit worried if true, that the virus can go through the eyeball (as mentioned above), so half face masks are next to useless as a defence. So masks are only good at stopping you sneezing into another person?

The only thing i could find on the internet talking abut this is here...

Don't forget this bit Bandi. Just use decent hygiene rule and you'll be OK ( wash your hands properly, burn snotty tissues, all that. But while we're here...

It's like they don't want you to attach a harpoon to a drone and drag people to the hospital!!! They're just standing in the way of progress.

Given the state of most A&Es they'd probably rather he dragged them out than in.

Well here in USA New Jersey my daughter order masks online 20 masks for 120.00 which we split the cost , plus filling up pantry with cans goods dry goods cleaning detergents some meds and hands disinfectant and lots of bottle water. Slowly filling up two freezers. Its nerve wrecking 😳 plus heard one lady in Washington first to die of virus, they don’t know how she got it, may she Rest In Peace.

Brooky... i was watching Americans on the news this morning panicking buying, for such a big country, the general population really appears to have very small grasp on reality.

This is (stands to be corrected) just another winter cold/flu virus... the media have hyped it out of all proportion.

Yes it is more of a concern for those with a pre-existing medical condition, compromised immune system, the very young/very old who may have less resistence... but in general it should not be a problem to anyone exposed.

If it were like the Great Flu epidemic of 1917/1918 that killed more than the First World War, i would be more concerned.

Simple precautions around basic hygiene, and minimising exposure to germs will see you ok.
