    2 world wars and many other catastrophes
    ha ha look at the stock markets down many percentage points ( many people will make many millions out of this because at the end of the day that is what they do its a gamble)

    gold looking good up a few hundred pounds since last year cheaper option is silver

    all caused by a flu virus

    world population 7.7 billion
    850000 with the virus so far

    sadly the flu in GB kills circa 30000 people a year Influenza update - 361

    these nonces really need to get a grip on reality and stop panicking the population of the world
    plus some of these countries really need to look at how they treat their food chain.(not withstanding global warming and plastic and all that chat)

    Dicky is right. With facts like that you are well qualified for the NYT and BBC :)

    Spotted in my local supermarket - if you are not happy with getting just ordinary Corona like everyone else, you could always go for Corona Extra!

    I would love to know if Corona beer sales have been helped or hindered. On the one hand, the name association is a negative and on the other, the word Corona has been in the news every day.

    I can see the government raising an order for the reintroduction of the military FFI to cover the whole of the population.

    Beware of the MO's stick .

    Corona....the supermarkets are stacked out with the stuff here in the local area....nothing like the Corona soft drinks we used to rave for in the old days when there was not too much "pop" around.

    The current supply chains appear somewhat complicated. Why not just get it delivered direct to your door.

    On a positive note, cruise line stock is now a real buying opportunity!

    If you live long enough.

    I was cracking up listening to my mate talking to his family in Middlesbrough. Firstly, they had been to the supermarket and noticed Corona beer was on sale. Having taken advantage of this bargain, they discussed the use of face masks in the city. His sister said that she had considered buying one, but realised it would stop her having a fag!

    Tough lot on Teesside.

    I'm trying to catch it within the next three weeks. Apparently once past 60, it's far more likely to be fatal...
