Covid-19 is just another variant of the Corona virus family. In fact it's the 19th to be identified. These viruses have probably been around since before Homo Sapiens. Bats seem to carry them but are not affected by them. Other animals catch the virus from the bat poop or from close contact with the bats and the virus then mixes with other viruses in the animals body and sometimes creates a hybrid that can infect humans. Some of them we label as the common cold (along with Rhino-viruses and others), some are misidentified as Flu (Influenza virus) and in most the symptoms are so mild that they are dismissed as "feeling a bit kack". As for it's supposed "man-made" origin,... bollox!

Covid-19 can affect anyone, regardless of age, but it tends to affect those with breathing/heart problems (whether or not they were previously known), so affects the elderly more percentage wise.
In the UK a 21 year old girl has died from it, and Great Ormond Street Hospital has several young children on ventilators because of it.

Yes but for some reason they have changed the centuries old original name with this one, before they were always.............called a  'plague'. https://bit.ly/2vREYxt

It is believed to have come out of Wuhan and there are plenty of videos on Youtube showing the Wuhan Meat Market.

If you've got a strong stomach here is one of them but don't watch if you're squeamish. However, having seen it myself, I'm not at all surprised that the virus first made the jump to humans there if that is indeed the case.

There will always be conspiracy theories 9/11 being part of a USA plot, the Americans never really landing on the moon (there was even a film on this once, can't remember whether it was before or after the actual landing but one of the astronaults who was hunted down escaped detection and turned up at his own funeral which gave the game away but that was a movie).  I don't for a second believe the C -19 was man made but if it was it was released unintentionally.  It has damaged every country, directly or indirectly particularly the USA.  I had not previously seen the Bill Gates video but he has been shown to have been correct.  Russia seems to have got off fairly light if you can believe what is reported but look how they cover up drug taking by athletes and what happened at Chenoble.

WHO: First confirmed cases of 2019-nCoV acute respiratory disease in Finland, India and Philippines; all had travel history to Wuhan City.

latest from Dutch healhservices;  around 70% of people in artificial coma on the intensive care units are male and suffering from adipositas ( overweight). half of them below 50 years old. Doctors telling that "they all look thesame "   70% of deaths are over 70 years of age..   children can be infected as well with teens and tweens ending on ICU but this is very exceptional. Note that a lot of elderly people do not get to the ICU as they die before they get there in nursery homes or simply at home.

this is good for the home and garden I'm sure ...  lots of jobs getting done around the place BUT, even the cats seem bored silly, they don't understand why they don't now have the run of the place with us now indoors almost 24/7 and letting all their mates in to play, rest and of course eat,sleep,eat and sleep and sleep and sleep

is this really what cats do all day ( and night )

OK to put this all to bed on cats

My prtnr is a Cats Protection co-ordnator with much experience and we have 4 cats ( god help us :wink3:

YES they do have a genetic ? coronavirus type which stays in the cat and it's NOT covid19 ....  you will find that all cats have this specific strain which has never ever passed to humans ......  well maybe in China I suppose  .......  and I remember going to Canton many years back ( about 30 ) on my holiday touring China AND was quite horrified at the delicacies on offer in the marketplace there .........  say no more ..............  it was a horror story ......  I part put it down to Canton having a very much French cuisine influence as they were the " colonialists " for that part of China in the day

By the way. This is a great video for helping understand virus and realising where media fail.

Get the facts
