Don't be scared. HIV has been here since 1982.

11 000 people died of flu last year in SA. There are lots of other things that kill you out there.... The media creates a lot hype and hysteria, dont forget that.

On a personal level Im not scared of the Coronavirus.
I do worry about the economic implications though if it spreads out of control, for me that is the biggest danger to this country.

Media hype at 100% full speed. As LupiniPower said plain old Influenza killed 11000 people in South African alone last year, don't hear no big song and dance about that...

It already is causing huge losses to the economy. I cant get containers of manufactured goods out of china, storage costs. Production at our suppliers is still closed, expect delays of 8 weeks due to this. Forward cover dates are approaching fast without stock having shipped. New orders will probably have to be done with out forward cover......

Good for local producers/suppliers if they exist for a given product, bad for importers yes...

The population of Hilton are 73% over 80s. If half of them die it might be a nice place to go visit.

The containers are a full of parts needed for local production. The parts on the containers make up 5% of the completed product. Go figure.

I think you mean Howick LOL
I still don't get Howick, old people are usually always cold, unsteady on their feet and avoid stairs and not good with slippery surfaces. ie you want a hot, dry flat place to live- Yet howick a very wet, hilly(lots of stairs) and generally chilly place is full of retired folk.

They died of flu because they had HIV/AIDS. Corona is going to have a ball here HIV patients will be a complete walkover.
