    I think the worst part is none of us knows. On my ward, the common cold and Flu are more of an issue, for the Patients at the moment. Just last Saturday we were all saying on handover, that we could have all had it in January and February: given how many of us were going to work coughing and sneezing our guts up. To most of us, it will be nothing more than a bad cold and that makes it hard to tell if you have it or not.

    It could also be that a possible economical meltdown could hurt and affect more people, if more countries have to go into shutdown

    The only thing I know of male nurses is from having watched Greg Focker in Meet the Parents.

But most likely none of that will happen - if China got through it with one or two hundred thousand deaths, then Europe may not even reach a quarter of that.
    Wow. Besides the fact that your logic is completely flawed and a wild-ass bet at best, you must be a loner with no family or friends, if that's what you 'honestly wouldn't mind'. Are you German?

    Heís watched too much Avengers.
    A Black Falcon: no, computer games and video games are NOT the same thing. Video games are on consoles, computer games are on PC. The two kinds of games are different, and have significantly different design styles, distribution methods, and game genre selections. Computer gaming and console (video) gaming are NOT the same thing."

    Overpopulation is a serious problem and humanity and life on Earth would be better off if we didn't arrive at this point. But you can't just lose a large number of people and have society still function. The Corona virus has shown how much of an impact it has across the world when people simply stop moving as much.

    That was the most fantastical part about the Avengers films. Even if other worlds magically improve as soon as half of all life disappeared, there's no way Earth wouldn't be post apocalyptic 5 years after half of humanity disappeared.

    More and more cases and deaths being reported here in the UK. I wonder if we'll go into lock down like Italy if it gets any worse? And to top it off they've cancelled football for nearly a month! Bastards! Ah well, if I do have to self isolate at least I can get some serious gaming in.

    I don't get why this weird logic keeps popping up.

    "More people will possibly die from this other thing, therefore we should do nothing to prevent this preventable thing that has a far higher mortality rate."

    The point is the country doesn't go into lock down for Sepsis or the the Flu and they kill millions of people each and every year.

    So you're OK with having another type of annual flu that has a mortality rate of 5-10x that of the current flu? Don't be shortsighted.

    It doesn't look as if he is saying not to do anything but acting like the dead will soon walk the earth is unproductive and downright asinine.
