    I've heard a lot of people may be buying up the cases of water and jugs of water.


    I suppose this goes for food and toiletry items too. If the Coronavirus hits hard than nobody is gonna want to leave their residences until it's safe to be out in public again.

    You have to stay at least a metre away from a person with it..the virus may stay active on a surface for up to several days..>>>>>>>>><<<<<<<<<..

    The reason for people stockpiling items is so they won't have to leave their homes for a few days, which means they will not be within meters of anyone, except the people/family members who are living in the same dwelling.
    Of course, there is still the risk that a family member may have previously been exposed to the virus before quarantining the family....but the risk will be reduced.

    It seems hard to believe they are stockpiling to stay at home CB,,if they were staying at home,The USA would not have upwards of 19,000 new cases per day and 100,500 death toll..>>>>>>>><<<<<<<<..

    When this Covid-19 first started people all over the world were stockpiling food, water, and toiletries, Some were stockpiling out of fear while others were buying what they felt was needed to stay home and quarantine either by choice or due to the Shelter-in-Place/Lockdown.
    There are also people who have not followed any of the advice or guidelines. There are people who don't give one s%*t about following the suggestions or the rules,but it is not limited to the USA.

    And that is why the USA has the highest death toll,,too many people do not give a s##t about it..it is not a population thing,,USA has 330 million people and 1,700,000 cases of Covid and a 102,000 deaths..India has over 1 billion people but only 158,000 cases of covid and 4,500 deaths,,that is not a very good proportion..So USA has got to be doing something very wrong..i will give you a link to the world meter,,let me know what you think CB..>>>>>>>><<<<<<<<..https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/#countries

    I read the article CB,,however there are a lot of maybe,could be,possibly...but they are all fair points..however i know Social Distancing and lock downs and testing is the only way to fight this virus..which is working in most countries,,but is certainly not working in USA..As i said it is not really about population as much as about how it is handled..i work on figures so i will give you some..and i will take from your article written on 16-4-2020.to 29-5-2020...USA cases 677,570..up to..1,768,461==population,330,827,597....CHINA cases 82,000..up to..83,000==population,1,439,323,776....RUSSIA cases 28,000..up to..83,000==population,145,928,996....Aussie cases 6,468..up to 7,150==population 25,472,297...there are 4 different countries with 4 different ways of handling the virus..but all very different figures..All the best CB,,i believe Scotland is doing okay..?????..>>>>>>><<<<<<<..

    Not yet. There are 30 confirmed cases in the entire country....no deaths. All cases have been attributed to people returning from highly infected countries.

    Yes it does and even more likely to be a problem for those with other health issues i.e. heart conditions and diabetes. I know more than one elderly person who does have such issues. :(

    I now know 2 people who have been placed on home isolation for a minimum of 2 weeks, that's what you get for holidaying in northern Italy I suppose.
    terryfossil 1

    The 2 weeks isolation is not exactly set in stone i believe Roy..and the virus can live longer on solid surface than soft surface,,Aussie has banned flights from China,but i believe we are doing something about Italy tomorrow,,we have not yet declared it a pandemic,,but it could be coming..Catch ya later mate >>>>>>>><<<<<<<<..

    I knew one person who unfortunately died from it, he was in his 70's and also had other health problems. I also know four people who had the virus and got through it. They were in their 40's and 50's and they were very ill with it for several weeks.
