What about the other 20% of the nation?

I for one like this idea of a military dictatorship though. Let's start shooting people, they're better off dead than being ill. Who needs schools and jobs anyway? We can have a new country of agarophobes. Muggings, robbery and violent crimes will be eliminated, particularly after soldiers shooting people will be decriminalised. There will be a sharp rise in cybercrime and domestic disputes though.

If you do what you're supposed to, for your own safety, then nobody would need to get shot. I have no idea what you're actually rambling about. Clearly I never said a thing about anybody shooting the sick you numpty.

But at least the Undertaking business will be on the up. 

Forget the falling Stock Exchange, get your money into embalming fluid. 

Although if you’re looking for a medium to long term investment. Get yourself a Stocks and Shares ISA. Best time to buy is when the market is falling. It won’t go bust as thats the end of the world. Risk what you can afford to lose and a few years you’ll have made a fair profit.

As far as my limited knowledge goes, vaccines prevent or reduce the effects of a disease, but the medicines used to treat the lung etc complications of corona will be in far greater demand than usual, not a panic but simple arithmetic.

From very limited knowledge....... vaccines help the immune system to cope with the war that ensues when a virus is contracted...... usually by introducing a diluted strain of the virus, the immune system learns how to deal with it for when the big guns arrive..... the immune system learns how to fight it before it has a chance to take over.

It's said no matter how many cold/flue viruses you contract in your life you never get the same one twice.... each is a mutation or strain.

Presumably the same will happen with Corona, and  eventually vaccines will be available to  people as with annual flu jabs

Geo,. A vaccine is a modified or killed form of a microorganism/virus that doesn't go on to cause the full blown disease. When the vaccine is injected into a human (or animal)  the immune system produces antibodies to the virus, antibody production is one of the first steps of the immune system that leads to a full blown immune response and the eventual suppression or elimination  of the disease in that person.

Once antibodies are produced to a virus they remain in the body, if the virus attacks for a 2nd time the immune system is primed with the antibodies and responds faster and lesser or  no disease occurs.

A possible treatment to halt the spread of/treatment for the coronavirus is to take plasma/serum from from people who have recovered from the disease (this plasma/serum contains antibodies to the coronavirus) and inject/transfuse it into people who don't have or have just contracted the disease but the logistics to do this world wide would be immense. Apparently this was done during the Spanish Flu Pandemic in the early 20th century.
