Here in Belgium it's even more crazy . According the newsflash from this evening, before they didn't counted the virus death in our retirement homes .
Actually it's a shame !
If they missed the retirement homes death count it shows they can't keep up with the count...possibly..the situation is sickening.

Yeah my friend . Probably by the virus outbreak in 20 of our retirement homes .
Earlier today a virus expert said it's "The silent killer virus"
It's a disaster !

All we can do is hoping for a vaccine ASAP !

I'm sure the vaccine boffins worldwide are working overtime to come nearer to the 'bullseye'.
Some reports are emerging that the count here may be short even as far back as March 16..it gets worse my friend.

I was going to ask you about that, because of some c**t in gov decided you are ''essential'' you have to take risk putting yourself on the line. Take extra precaution by spaying alcohol and wiping door handles on car and doors, there nutcases going around putting saliva on handles (like that drunk on train in Brussels did on handrail).

Have seen a few vids, that one on train and at night here in UK a bod passing a parked car in driveway doing the car handle at back and a woman somewhere else SPITTING on fruit in a store.Seems the pandemic brings the nutters out and goes without saying ALL fruit should be washed well before consuming.

We are concerned for your health; is your employer providing proper personal protective equipment - this is not full protection but a good start; what are the next steps?

I just heard that London's field hospitals are now in full use due to the overwhelming number of patients in hospital.

News online regarding Belgium:

Shortage of medical supplies:
Like other countries, Belgium is also facing a shortage of medical supplies.

Vincent Fredericq, head of Belgiumís nursing home association, said some families have sewn masks and donated to nursing homes, adding staff members of these facilities are also at risk.

Belgium also released a decree to keep elderly COVID-19 patients with preexisting conditions in nursing homes and not to send them to hospitals.

Some four people in nursing homes have lost their lives so far in the country.

Hi my friends ,

Well , last month the company invested for 4 million Euro's .
This means new injection molds , hotrunners , temptools and Sepro-Robots are supplied (are delivered) pretty much everyday .
By this I get contact with people from other firms and companies .They come from Germany and the Netherlands . And of course daily meetings are required in the whole situation .
And it's right there..."The contact" with other people ...Are they healthy or not ?

Next steps ? Actually none ..We are on our limit with our protective equipment , but like I said today it's never waterproof ..And the risk is always there .
My friends you should see the skin of my hands ....Ough !
Stay healthy my friends !

WHO estimates that the flu kills up to 650,000 people per year. Should we call the flu a pandemic?

The "Spanish flu" was a "Global" pandemic in 1918/19 ,it infected about 500 million people, with an estimated death toll of between 20 million to 50 million people.
"Sars-Cov-2" (Covid-19) is actually more deadly . But the todays medical support is a lot improved .
Today the flu can be cured with antibiotics and Paracetamol (Acetaminophen) and of course with the Flu-vaccine (prevention)
For Covid-19 , only God can help you and us with a ventilator , at least if there is one left ...
Meanwhile ,the only thing what we do is hoping for a vaccine ASAP ...
Mate , stay healthy !

Saw a joke sent to me on phone, it was Arnold in Terminator and saying'' I won't be back look at my hands from washing''... his hands and wrists were just shrivelled metal.
(can't load it from phone to here).

A Pandemic is a Global Epidemic, so "Global Pandemic" is a global global Epidemic, nonsense.

The Flu is a pandemic because is a Global Epidemic, AIDS is also a Pandemic

If you look at the literal meaning of the word pandemic, then yes, you could argue that the flu is a pandemic. But the flu also mostly occurs seasonally.

The thing that makes this current virus a bigger threat is that we have no vaccines from it, its death rate is significantly higher and people can transmit it without initially showing any symptoms. There's a reason why one is considered pandemic and the other isnt.

After being a part of giving and receiving disrespect on Zpost, I thought it beneficial to carefully point out that not all of us are capable of speaking three languages, and keeping the level of respect and care for each other is paramount.
