China Virus Threat 2020

RE: China Virus Threat 2020
I saw on the news feed that three of your four confirmed virus patients had been released from hospital, leaving you only one infected party nationwide.

And no, I have not changed my investment strategy.

Did anyone realize that the U.S. had more than 30,000 confirmed deaths due to the normal flu strains between October and Feb this year?

In the UK you have had 600 people hospitalized and eight confirmed deaths due to the normal strains of flu.

I see one death in France due to corona.

They have lost more than 1,100 to normal flu this year.

Where is the panic over that?

When is everyone going to realize that the researchers simply missed one of the strong strains of flu in their annual quest for the right virus to kill last year and failed to include it in the normal "flu jab", as you guys call it. In fact, it appears that there are other stronger strains killing people by the thousands and not getting any publicity at all!

A couple of years ago you had more confirmed cases of Ebola without panic, and that was something to worry about!

Yes Pete I hold some metals ...just in case , and NO MB there is no panic so much for this virus but more worry as regards the financial implications and disruption in supply of goods , bulk carriers of food stuffs I tried to intermate in my previous post ! as you will be aware I have been voicing my concerns for YEARS ….you could argue (well nothing has happened yet and everything is fine ) and what is the point of even giving it any serious thought or time ? you could even be right after all , I may well just sit and wait for spring with you …..but I doubt it !
To take a look back in times past, its easy to see future direction you need to be.

Over the last five years deaths due to flu AVERAGE 17,000 EACH year.

In today’s “The Times” it says the government is working on the assumption that if China fails to contain the virus soon, within months it could infect HALF the the population with hundreds of thousands of deaths, and hospital intensive care units having to prioritise patients (so hard luck on us oldies).

However only between 1 and 4% would need hospitalisation, most people will get better at home with OTC medication. We shall see.

I believe that as TPTB get closer to working out the travel restrictions that would have been associated with the Brixit there will be less and less danger and fewer cases reported.

The same for funds transfers and exchanges between the EU and GB.

You did note that all of this threat of travel restriction and the wobbling of the economic situation occurred within hours of the official break?
