My wife's boyfriend is a doctor, I think I know what I'm talking about.



This new 'virus' has a mortality rate of about 2%, which is low as is, and mortality figures are often exaggerated for new diseases. Not to mention the fact that that figure is blown out by old Chinese people with respiratory problems, living in a country with comparatively poor hygiene standards, and a poor health system.

I will, again, restate my claim that I will support Richmond if any of the players get coronavirus, unless they go around licking doorhandles and toilet seats in Wuhan, they will be fine.
Sorry to hear the bad news...

Your wife's boyfriend?

I AM a doctor and so is my wife. I even own my own medical clinic in Asia.

20% of people infected are in the ICU. out of the 28,000 cases, only 600 have been cured and released.

The common flu is a bigger threat simply because millions of people already have it. That's the only reason. NOT because it is more potent. If you get it, you barely need to even get off the couch for 4 days. Just relax. If you get cornavirus, you need to get to the hospital immediately.

I suggest you ask your wife's fling on the side to give you the correct information. I mean, you really gonna trust the dude that is screwing your Mrs?

Tin foil hat stuff there buddy.

The issue and risks are real

Do you really think the Chinese gov would 'flex their muscles' and derail their own economy as well as half the world economy for fake?

Supply chains are now being massively disrupted and will cost world billions not to mention thousands of lives by the time this is over.

Will it be the end of the world? No.

But how far this disruption reaches is only just being realised.

And at the end of the day moving this game means bugger all.
I have worked in China in the past and the Chinese can sometimes be sparing with the truth.
Some of their media statements on many matters are right out of the Josef Goebbels book of propaganda.
It wouldn't surprise me to find out that there are far more people are affected than the Chinese authorities are telling the world.

I didn't realise that doctors had enough time in the day to spend hours trolling people on BigFooty :rolleyes:
Depends what kind of doctor you are. I'm an aesthetic doctor who has their own business. I have all the down time I want.

And how about you stick to the thread instead of trying to stir the pot.

Play it in China on a Friday afternoon (Friday night here). Fly home Saturday, quarantine for 14 days, so have the bye in the middle there then play on the Sunday the day after quarantine clears. Burn the bodies of any that don't survive.

Obviously the difficult part here is getting channel 7 to agree to Port v St Kilda being a Friday night game.

Oh there is no doubt more people infected than the govt is reporting. They are struggling to test everyone who is sick.

Look at the number of cases in Indonesia. Zero.

End of the day this is more than a storm in a tea cup. They expect this to peak in April......10 weeks from now.

Might as well play it there. It's not like people avoiding attending out of virus fears will make the crowd any lower than the people already not going because they aren't interested.

Apparently they're turning some stadiums over there into temporary quarantine centres to put the infected into. It's possible they could end up with a much bigger crowd than they usually get for this game.

I live in Shanghai, and although it’s not often that I agree with a Carlton supporter, in this case you’re spot on with the hashtag. This really feels like a convenient case of media-porn and a chance for the government to flex the ‘population movement control’ muscles and see what kind of control the domestic population can accept.... there’s more to it than our mainstream media friends would have us believe.... anyway, having said all of that, I think that the game may after all be scuttled and need to be played in Victoria. They’ve already cancelled the Shanghai Chinaplas for late April which attracts hundreds of thousands of international and domestic visitors a year so I think the AFL game will follow suit since it’s just one month later....can’t wait for this sh*t situation to be over and the AFL season to start
Well stated in the first half of your comments.
Hong Kong sources says under reporting of actual numbers.
