Manny:
Anyone who has been watching the news the last few days will know about the Coronavirus that may have originated in Wuhan, China. Cases are already reported in South Korea, Japan, Thailand, Taiwan and the US.

China is admitting 440 cases today, but right now is the Chinese New Year holiday week where every man and his dog is travelling and the Chinese airports and stations are full to the gunwales, so it is going to get much worse.

This morning North Korea closed its borders to foreigners to keep it out.

The suspicion is the Chinese are under reporting it as they did with the SARS.

The media says one case in the US, but JFK has flights from Wuhan it seems so it's bound to be a problem there in the near future. I wonder how long the incubation period is.

I wonder how long it will take to develop a vaccine..........

I remember Corona. it was made near to where I grew up. Do any other Britons remember the Corona man delivering bottles of fizzy pop from his white electric van?

My granny always had Corona in her kitchen for her favourite grandkids who had been told by their mother that they didn't like fizzy drinks.

Andrew I sort (and hope) that the Corona of North America is not what your granny served the kids. Of course a lime can hide a multitude of sins including piss poor beer.
