    I am not a doctor or a virologist, and neither is Korks. He's a pedantic twat
    That is high praise coming from you.

    Least of your worries.

    If any of those suspects in Scottishland had been confirmed, it was going to be renamed

    Seems that the virus has an infection rate of about 14 pp infected and furthermore is asymptomatically infectious for at least 10 days. The Chinese say that about 3,000 people are infected but the true figure (as unofficially posted on Chinese social media) is likely to be many times this figure.

    In this the case the Chinese could well be dealing with over 100,000 infected people within the next three weeks.

    Fook.

    Apparently it only affects humans under 5'3" tall so most of us will be ok!

    Current trends suggest that it's highly infectious but not as lethal as some other strains. The worry is that could all change, of course, with the nightmare scenario being the 1918 flu pandemic that killed 50 million. Probably not a bad thing that they're taking it seriously, all in all.

    I prefer the term Wu Flu though.
