The name's not as catchy as SARS.

CaptainBlack - 23 Jan 2020 19:49:54 (#3 of 1485)

It needs a more informal name, like Captain Trips.

Got My Shirona as my new earworm

For a full-on moral panic, we need an animal connection e.g. "snake flu", "mad ape virus" etc.

I'm praying we never have to contend with Gnu Flu.

barkis - 23 Jan 2020 20:52:12 (#7 of 1485)

We'll be OK after the end of the month when magic UK independence starts.

Raccoon flu would be mighty.

breakfast - 23 Jan 2020 20:55:16 (#9 of 1485)

Skunk flu is where it's at.

nemo75 - 23 Jan 2020 20:57:00 (#10 of 1485)

Kung flu would be a kicker.

I think skunk flu would have problems transmitting itself (see also garlic flu, onion flu).

Cat stupor.

breakfast - 23 Jan 2020 20:59:31 (#13 of 1485)

Panda flu. Aw.

breakfast - 23 Jan 2020 21:00:18 (#14 of 1485)

Red panda flu is the dangerous variant.

solomongursky - 23 Jan 2020 21:06:31 (#15 of 1485)

Patients in Sydney and Los Angeles now.

Bromio - 23 Jan 2020 21:16:28 (#16 of 1485)

Orinoco Flu is a deadly yet ethereal form of the virus.

StakludKar - 23 Jan 2020 21:18:39 (#17 of 1485)

World at One had a Czech guy trapped in Wuhan who was proposing to live on bodybuilding protein supplements for the next 3 weeks but was worried he'd run out of water.

His Chinese girlfriend has gone back to her parents already. "Couldn't you go with her?" He sheepishly admitted she hasn't told them about him yet..

At least if they die of the virus they won't have to worry about the Czech chap marrying their daughter.

StakludKar - 23 Jan 2020 21:42:32 (#19 of 1485)

What's the death rate of this thing by the way.

There's a strep A outbreak in Essex that's killed 12 people in the past year

barkis - 23 Jan 2020 21:46:26 (#20 of 1485)

And have the government isolated Essex?
