Coronavirus Part II - Its arrived - We're Doomed!!! See OP for Mod warnings

As the first thread is getting towards 10,000 posts this is the follow up to that thread

Any threadbans from the original thread carry over to this one. Please PM to discuss if you do wish to be able to post again

All mod warnings remain in place, and in particular the following are copied from the OP of that first thread

Mod warning 19/02/20

In terms of thread content:

4. Treat everything you read here with caution. Anything posted is from an anonymous internet poster. You cannot assume anyone has any "specialist" knowledge whatever they claim
5. Statistics are important to some (and I personally pay a lot of attention to them), but they are of very little use to anyone who is already caught up in this, or indeed knows of people who are caught up
6. Terms such as "sinus", "airborne", "aerosol" have little relevance at this time in this jurisdiction. Ultimately though if cases are discovered in Ireland please pay attention to the relevant authorities and what they advise/recommend, and not some randomer(s) on the internet

All the above is me talking as a complete layman on the subject. Like everything in this thread do not treat it as chapter and verse, beyond paying attention to items 1-3 above

Any questions please PM me - do not try and dissect this post in-thread
Warning added 24/02/20
Last time it was a "suggestion"/request

Now it's an instruction

Stop all the tit for tat stuff on the stats. None of us are in full possession of the facts and none of us can draw any "definitive" conclusions. Bottom line. It's serious. Not serious in Ireland at this stage, but may become so. Anyone caught up in this is not going to take much solace from any stats however they are complied

Any questions PM me - do not respond to this warning in-thread


Now speculate away. Beware of conspiracy theories and treat everything claimed in this thread with suspicion unless someone provides verifiable and reliable sources

Most importantly do not panic, until you are told to do so.....

Do does it have to be a silver bullet, or will a regular bullet kill them?

Anyone else notice the stock market fall today? Like 5% in Italy and 3% in most other developed markets, this could get messy

Messy short term, but markets will pick up certainly once this is fully understood and the numbers affected are receding. Of course no-one knows when that will be.

In the meantime if anyone wants any gold I know someone with a stash of it.....

$474 billion wiped from European Markets CAC/DAX both down 4%, FTSE 3.5%
US is currently getting battered around 3.5% negative on main live markets.

Expect much of the same tommorow, but hopefully not as bad as some will (rightly or wrongly) view it as an opportunity to purchase.

Airlines having a bad time couple of big names -14-17% expect to get overcharged for luggage and oversold on in-flight lotto/raffles.
Currently accumulating gold bars and toilet rolls.
