    Watched these.....very scary,but very interesting too.

    Film:- Outbreak,Seen it many years ago,but watching it with the present situation in mind it becomes very real,more so than when first watched I'd guess.

    Invisble Killers:- I searched on Sky.

    Pandemic:- Again on Sky.

    Made me more aware of how serious things are getting.

    Reading about the Spanish Flu epidemic of 1918 is in some ways worrying and other ways reassuring.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spanish_flu

    There were 3 waves of mortality over 18 months, but at least the food didn't run out despite the fact there was also a world war on at the same time.

    The Hot Zone by Richard Preston, factual account of the Ebola/Marburg containment that started at the Reston monkey house some years ago. Good read for your isolation!

    There is also a mini series of this. It was on one of the documentary channels a few months back.

    Sorry to hear it, maybe watch Contagion while your off? They got it right apart from fighting over bog rolls.

    You wouldn't think so the way people are still carrying on!.The above explain and show things that the News isn't and or doesn't.
