Normal face masks cost a dollar or so, and they do not sit tight. There are of course professional 100% tight masks that do protect a lot more, but those are not on regular sales, and they cost a lot more...

The ones I got in my local hometown are the professional 100% tight masks.
it's € 3 each mask , and it last 3 hours only just to say...

Personally, I’m not yet worried about it. People are hysterical here in Asia but I am very skeptical by nature. I’ll be there for some dates and I promise not to bring ‘it’ with me smiling smiley

We shall see. Just take normal precautions, common sense precautions as you would with your average seasonal flu.

It seems that Coronavirus is here to stay. The fight should take months or maybe years. The question is how contagious and how deadly the virus is going to be. In the best case scenario people will acquire immunity to it and the vaccine will help reducing the virus spreading. In 1-2 years it will be only a minor disease affecting only few people around the world each season. But in the worst case scenario it will constantly mutate causing the vaccine and immune systems ineffective. Some mutations can be much deadlier than others.
In either way it will turn our lifestyle upside down. Cancellation of mass events, travels, human contact restrictions, quarantines, supply shortages... This is what we are going to witness in the coming months, years or even decades...

Now non-US citizens who have visited mainland China in the past 14 days is not allowed to enter USA.
And under the current situation coronavirus is spreading rapidly here in Japan, I am worrying if US immigration officers allow me into the States in June.sad smiley

On a more imminent gig — I’m going down to London on the coming Tuesday by train (which takes a few hours to get there) to attend Music For The Marsden, the all star charity event at the O2 Arena. While I speculate it’s too early to be over-cautious and withdraw from every entertainment-related activity, my hyper-hypochondriac self (read: paranoid) wonders if I should go as planned or give it up, waste money (ticket, train and accommodation all booked) and stay home. Seriously folks, what do you think? FYI my seat is a cheap nosebleed.

[www.royalmarsden.org]

Go to the show.

Seconded, emphatically.

On with the show good health to you!

Forget the hysteric media. Go to the show and enjoy it. Just a precaution, do not kiss, hug or shake hands with people you don't know. Wash you hands and you should be fine.

Remember, a lot more people die of a regular flu.

Excellent advice. Additionally, that should help you from getting arrested or beat up.

That could be a problem, granted. Just hope that does not affect fans travelling from our part of the world. Stay safe!

I'm in agreement with the advent that this mass hysteria product will change the way we live, just like terrorism. This is the direction of the "new world" That's what I believe.

I guess the mass hysteria is due to lack of other important news.

Right now, there are 88.336 cases of whom 3.000 are dead and 42.828 recovered.
3.000 dead are 3.000 too many - but many more die daily of other diseases, accidents etc.

This should just be a reminder of the necessity of better hygiene standards, both of our own hygiene and not the least the food hygiene standards.

In many countries the lack of good hygiene is the big problem and is the basis for diseases like corona-virus.

Here's a solution-- come now and take an extended vacation through June or whenever your tour ends.

We were planning to go (extended family visit) around the same time or a week later, but I don't like the prospect of having to stay in Quarantine for two weeks on arrival due to "over-burocratic" actions of Japanese governmental people. We saw an interview with a Japanese medical specialist (very experienced, SARS, Ebola, etc.) who was invited/allowed to visit the cruise ship and who was furious about, what he said "the stupid, burocratic attitude" of the officials. No medical experience, but ordered the specialist to leave the ship because he had dared to criticize the situation on the ship. We seriously consider not to go.

In America,6O thousand people have died from the common flu this season and over 300000 in the last 5years.There will be anti viral medicine inthenextfew months and Moderna says they already have the vaccine,but it will take a year to see if it reallyworks .It would be nice if the Chinese stopped eating cats and dogs .Maybe go vegan like McCartney.And didn’t the Stones do a benefit concert for the last pandemic

Don't live in JPN (Singapore) but there is the possibility you would be quarantined arriving back home. Not saying you will, but it's possible. Flights to and from China and Korea are curtailed here if not outright stopped.

I’m shocked that a country filled with people who eat cats and dogs dredged up some horrible disease but I’m still not scared.
More people die in car accidents each year worldwide than this virus will ever kill.
We used to have this thing called bravery- stop shitting yourselves every time something scary happens.

I live in Tokyo – besides hoarding toilet paper there’s not much sense of panic here and on the plus side the trains and restaurants etc. aren’t as crowded as usual. I’m not sure your chances of contracting the virus change that much by staying where you are so I wouldn’t cancel if I were you.

And as usual, you come off as a blustering fool. But I’m not going to explain why your car accident analogy is stupid unless you ask me really nicely.

Now in Florida - [www.foxnews.com]


This is in the Tampa area- I live in Martin County on other side of state.

Seems to be spreading fast- need more information of consequences, which are unknown at this time. We should know more about this outbreak in two-three weeks?

Highly doubt that. Remember the hysteria round SARS? That didnt last either. Plus when you are healthy you will not die of it. It is like a flu.

I am in Singapore at the moment following a holiday in Australia and New Zealand.
Definitely much quieter here...there are usually 10,000 visitors from China DAILY. So the local tourist trade definitely suffering.
Random body temperature checks taking place in some venues, including Airports. Face masks more prevalent.
Financial Markets being irrational, as per usual.
Saw a chap today, very overweight remove his mask to have a cigarette. You couldn't make it up really.
