    O/T Prince Charles Tests Positive

    This virus is clearly everywhere!
    Everybody at risk obviously, yet we have tossers breaching government advice!
    Not a Royalist but wish him, his family and everybody in this country and the world all the best.

    I wonder if he'll get a ventilator if needed, or would he be one of the unlucky ones!

    Got tested despite only having mild symptoms apparently, but its not possible to test NHS workers in a similar fashion!

    Looking on the bright side, he evidently met with "Ant and Dec" at a time when he may have been infectious

    Of course. heaven forbid that those who tell the rest of us what to do should fall foul of this virus.

    Why are you assuming that everyone who gets this virus is going to need a ventilator?

    I really wish I could know the actual infection figures of who has come into contact with this virus.
    It amazes me at how many of these famous and celebrities, have "apparently" got this and are in isolation.
    If you was the take up the celebrities as a percentage of the population, then there must be a hell of a lot more than the reported 6000+ cases admitted to.

    Even their own figures are starting to look dubious.
    80% of infected people will show mild symptoms (including 20% that will show no symptoms at all), 15% will show severe symptoms that may require medical support and 5% will be critical cases that require life sustaining medical support.

    So ineffect, you have less than a 1% chance of dying, more likely 0.2%.

    Now lets add some realism here.

    Heart disease over 15 million
    COP 3 million
    Lung cancer 2 million
    Diarrhoeal 2 million
    Malaria 0.5 million out of 220 million cases every bloody year

    Of course this is dangerous to certain few. BUT SO IS NORMAL FLU, which is why they give out flu jabs.

    If I see one more "celebrity" on social media crying and telling the world of their misery with the sniffles in isolation, I'm gonna drop someone.

    As someone that had been in a coma for a month, on morphine for 8 weeks, whilst being given a 5 % chance of survival, I find this so bloody drama queen attitude that is akin to the soft *******s in todays society.
    To name but a few

    How’s he ‘assuming that everyone who gets the virus is going to need a ventilator’?

    Aren’t you the one being a bit of a ‘drama queen’. We know you were ill and we wished you well. You don’t have the monopoly as regards health issues though and it’s hardly the time to start playing the - ‘I’ve had something worse than Coronavirus...it’s only a sniffle’ - card is it? Doesn’t really help.

    no I.m not being a drama queen.
    1. I never live broadcast, nor did I give a daily bulletin of my woes.
    2. There were a lot of people in that intensive care at the same time, worse than I was. Some didn't come out. Neither they, nor their families felt the need to give a live feed of their woes either.
    3. I'll say again. Show me anything that kills even a small amount larger than this, that has had such a reaction of the world scene.

    Lung cancer kills far more. They could make tobacco illegal. But for obvious reasons won't.

    Malaria kills far more, but where is the hysteria here either?

    So I'll say again, why now?
    What makes this crisis a world threat more than any other and causes "celebrities " to tell the world their troubles?

    I think drama queens does cover it.
    Tell you what, I'll change my stance, the first time one of these drama queens snuffs it. ( provided they didn't have lung issues from 50 fags a day either)
