  1. I have to ask, if you don't believe that we should be able to discuss anything else apart from the pandemic, what are you even doing on a football forum?
  2. True. But you all missed out on this classic: I think we both know who really missed out here
  3. Now showing this:
  4. Just done this online. Took 10 seconds and my future bills were updated immediately. And can still access the Sports channels. Sky take a lot of stick, but fair play to them on this one, and for making it so straightforward.
  5. But you're just basing that on your personal experience. I could just as easily say that because I don't know a single person who has had it, that the 0.08% is too high.
  6. Might the Jets finally have a chance in the AFC East?! Nah, probably not
  7. We can change the date of our flight for free, but considering we have no idea when it will be okay to fly again, that seems a bit pointless. Hopefully they'll cancel the flight soon, so we can get an automatic refund. Airbnb are now allowing free cancellation, so that's good at least.
  8. Indeed. Article from yesterday, suggests it's very unlikely that somebody could be reinfected, but as with most things to do with this virus, it's a best guess based on previous viruses. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/mar/16/the-big-question-over-coronavirus-can-a-person-get-it-twice One of the most concerning issues since the emergence of the Covid-19 virus has been whether those who have had it can get it a second time – and what that means for immunity. On Monday, both Sir Patrick Vallance, the government’s chief scientific adviser, and Prof Chris Whitty, Boris Johnson’s chief medical adviser, sought to reassure the public. Those who have had the virus once will develop some immunity, they said – and it is rare to get an infectious disease again. The questions first arose last month, after Japanese authorities said a woman who had had the virus, and been declared virus-free, had tested positive again. Scientists were left confused by the news and and also uneasy. Prof Mark Harris, an expert in virology at Leeds University, said reinfection in that case was “unlikely”, but added that “there is some evidence in the scientific literature for persistent infections of animal coronaviruses (mainly in bats)”. When Vallance was asked on Monday if the Japanese case meant herd immunity was no longer achievable, he replied that some people do catch infectious diseases a second time, but that it is a rare occurrence. There was no evidence to suggest that it would occur with the coronavirus, he added. Prof Whitty explained that with diseases, even if there is no long-term immunity, there is normally some short-term immunity. Prof Jon Cohen, emeritus professor of infectious diseases at Brighton and Sussex Medical School, said: “The answer is that we simply don’t know [about reinfection] yet because we don’t have an antibody test for the infection, although we will have soon. “However, it is very likely, based on other viral infections, that yes, once a person has had the infection they will generally be immune and won’t get it again. There will always be the odd exception, but that is certainly a reasonable expectation.”
  9. Still got flights to go in four weeks time. Not actually cancelled, so can't get my money back at the moment, but can't use the flights...
  10. I'm due to fly to Malta in four weeks time... Fingers crossed I'll still be able to
  11. https://www.bcfc.co.uk/news/remaining-march-fixtures-postponed/ City's remaining fixtures in March have been postponed, the EFL has confirmed. It means City will no longer travel to face Blackburn Rovers this weekend, with fixtures against Sheffield Wednesday and Nottingham Forest suspended until further notice. On Friday morning, the FA, Premier League, EFL and Barclays FA Women’s Super League and FA Women’s Championship collectively agreed to postpone the professional game in England until 3 April at the earliest. This action, which will be kept under constant review, has been taken due to the increasing numbers of Clubs taking steps to isolate their players and staff because of the COVID-19 virus. The postponements include all matches in the Championship, League One and League Two, as well as all Academy and youth team fixtures. In addition, Clubs are being advised to suspend indefinitely all non-essential activities which include, but are not limited to, player appearances, training ground visits and fan meetings. Whilst the EFL Board has continued to take the advice and guidance offered by the Government and its health advisors, emerging developments mean now is the time to implement football’s contingency plans in response to the crisis. A further update on these plans will be given post an EFL Board Meeting next week. This decision has not been taken lightly, but the EFL must prioritise the health and well-being of players, staff and supporters while also acknowledging the Government’s national efforts in tackling this outbreak.
  12. If we are going to have posts separate from the main Coronavirus thread, can we at least wait until they are official announcements.
