The United Kingdom said Monday that “the incidence or transmission of novel coronavirus constitutes a serious and imminent threat to public health” and outlined measures to delay or prevent its further transmission.

The rules are meant to reduce the risk of further human-to-human transmission in the country.

They are a precaution, as the clinical advice about the risk to the public continues to be moderate, Health Secretary Matt Hancock said.

This permits the government to plan for all eventualities. The risk to individuals remains low.

He tweeted in response: “I’ve got about 10 more days of mindless ill-informed idiots hurling foul-mouthed ‘Stop f*cking scare-mongering!’ abuse at me on here before the full enormity of this #coronavirus crisis sinks into their thick little heads.

“In the meantime, I’ll keep informing & challenging.”

Coronavirus: Piers Morgan tells Sam Smith to ‘get a grip’ after his ‘quarantine meltdown’

FFS. I can’t take any more of this celebrity attention-seeking bullsh*t. Get a grip, the lot of you. This is a war, not an Instagram story op.

i must touch you

handshaking can transmit viruses like the cold or flu, parasites like scabies, and bacteria

shake my hand corona virus

a typical hand has roughly 150 different species of bacteria living on it

 i may have defecated
i may have masturbated 
 i may not have sanitised  (sanitized)
shake my hand

“The hands are a primary way that germs can be transmitted,” says Mary Lou Manning, PhD, President-Elect of the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology, who was not part of the study. “When I shake your hand, you don’t know where my hand has been, and I don’t know where your hand has been,” Dr. Manning wrote in an email. “All sorts of bacteria and viruses—from the germs that cause the common cold to the ones that lead to superbug infections—can be spread this way.”

trump called handshakes “barbaric.” In his 1997 book “the art of the comeback,” trump wrote he’d “often thought of taking out a series of newspaper ads encouraging the abolishment of the handshake.”

agreeing with donald trump. damn.

then again, he also says

……that when he meets beautiful women he feels able to “grab them by the pussy”

Covid-19 appears to be more infectious than normal flu. And, at least for older people, it’s more dangerous. I’m 62 years old and male, which puts me into two of the higher-risk categories. Among my strategies, I have decided to avoid shaking hands. Remember, transmission of the virus is mainly via the hands, writes Dr Michael Mosley
