    In addition, all the phamacies have run out of related medicines. I'm just listening to BBC Radio 4, lot's of people are struggling to to find any help at all. My friend at the local "cafe" has sent me a message, translated as "stay indoors, if you go outside wear a mask AND goggles, the virus can be tranferred through the eyes"....not to worry it's only the common cold as someone on this site informed me !

    Just lucky you are in a small town like Burnley.Only 11 million people in your neck of the woods,easy to lockdown such a small place.
    It's not easy to find bat soup and snake over here,you are lucky to be able to find such delicious delicacies,I'vs searched through all the numbers on the local Chinese takeaway and they are not to be found.

    Virus scare: 600 Chinese from Wuhan must leave PH by Jan. 27
    Over 600 Chinese tourists who had entered the country on separate flights from the Chinese city of Wuhan must return home as scheduled in their package tours, giving them no time to extend their stay or to visit other parts of the Philippines.

    Germ Profile

    Germ Type: Virus
    Season: Fall, winter

    Human coronavirus refers to a group of viruses that cause the "Common Cold" around the world. Young children are most likely to get infected, but people can have multiple infections over a lifetime and most people on the planet will get sick from coronavirus at one time or another. These viruses typically cause cold-like symptoms: runny nose, cough, and sore throat. The coronavirus SARS can cause life-threatening illness, but it is very rare, and not a single case of SARS has been reported anywhere in the world since 2004.
