    New Virus Epidemic

    You may have heard of the new Chinese Coronavirus (an evolved SARS virus) which has spread and caused mass fatalities. It has recently spread to Thailand. We know this because my wife's grandmother in Chiang Mai has just been diagnosed with it (and is sadly unlikely to pull through) and we have literally returned from there a few days ago and spent time with her so will get checked out asap at the doctor. Scary stuff

    Not nice news to receive, I'm sure you will be fine but safer to get checked out.

    Very sorry to hear about your wife's grandmother - indeed the flu this season seems particularly strong strain.

    However mass fatalities amongst the weak and elderly (and those with compromised immune systems) is common with any flu outbreak

    the WHo Statement about this 'chinese coronavirus' https://www.who.int/csr/don/12-janua...irus-china/en/ mentions one fatality so far

    Hope no nasty flu takes hold in the UK this year. My mother is 75 now so these things can be the end if particularly vicious

    I'm very sorry to hear about your wife's grandmother, I hope she defies expectations.

    Been reading up on this, pretty scary stuff. Reason I was reading about it is my daughter just came back from Chang Mai a few weeks back so wanted to know as much as possible.
