We should put that R100 in a kitty and give it to the first one who goes bankrupt due to the virus.

This will bankrupt more than it will kill...

Eish, what business are you in?

My problem is getting equipment in from suppliers in China. Air freight prices are increasing due to scarce availability and I assume sea freight will also take a knock. But fortunately we do quite a bit of local manufacturing as well, so not too serious a hit my side yet. Next few weeks will tell though.

The economic impact is going to be far worse than the health impact for most.

What has happened is I've had to cancel my trip to Spain and Isle of Man which should have taken place end May beginning June. Was gonna catch the IoM TT, but it is also canceled.

yup I have a few friends in that boat:

1 event photographer, had literally every job lined up for the next 3 months cancelled yesterday.

A few event organizers have had to postpone their events or cancel them outright. Some are taking a hammering with deposits and costs out and people demanding refunds.

This is going to hurt a lot of people. There are lots jumping and innovating on the fly because they need to pay the salaries next month.

Us too, nice and busy but probably to a lesser degree than you. We manufacture till and credit card thermal rolls, the bulk of our customers are supermarket chains, pharmacies etc..

Far away from slab
This Chinese Flu is getting hectic, 600 deaths in Italy today.

I honestly think that it’s time to start taking the seriously.
Do any of the moto101’s do latex gloves, masks and proper hand sanitizer?
