UK residents typically have physical contact with five other people a day, while for the touchyfeely Italians it’s twice as many.
Total bull.


The PS4 came out in 2013.

Please don't compromise your lungs when a respiratory virus may be on the way.

UK not prepared to shut down travel or public events. Schools may shut though.

https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...virus-outbreak

Are they admitting containment doesn't work? Protecting the economy?

I would imagine our policies may match those of UK?
