  1. I'd be selling my stocks now (if I had any) after the little rebound the last couple of days. 'Just' around 25% down now from their all time high, I'd be surprised if it doesn't go a lot lower than that.
  2. We order everything online. Landers, S&R, Robinsons (on metromart) all deliver. Not sure which ones are in Cebu but some of them must be.
  3. He said in his post he was talking about 'concluded cases'. Sounds like he was trying to make the same point you have been though anyway, such a high mortality rates means the Philippines probably has a lot more cases.
  4. Philippines hospitals heading for the shitter already when they supposedly only have 200 cases: https://news.abs-cbn.com/news/03/20/20/we-feel-were-on-our-own-ph-hospitals-appeal-to-govt-for-help-in-covid-19-fight?fbclid=IwAR1AU-bQ8FpDnOWz4qJdnC6TkvBbRDBgEJcD4Sj6WzNHPHlI50TJxG1RkgE 17 dead, 8 recovered. I think I'll just take my chances at home if I get it
  5. Maybe best to just postpone it. They just announced all the malls will be closed and a curfew too, won't be much to do here by yourself.
  6. You must not be in contact with many Filipinos? They're losing their minds much much more than any western country. About half of my wifes call center friends are running off back to the province even though they're supposed to be working. Others shitting themselves because their medical care through work doesn't cover pandemics.
  7. Metro Manila quarantine from March 15- April 12. City wide lock down when there's more than 2 cases in 2 different barangays. I imagine that's all the cities in Metro Manila or will be soon. https://gulfnews.com/travel/duterte-places-metro-manila-under-lockdown-1.70342223 Dubai: Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte has placed the national capital region or Metro Manila, composed of 16 cities and one municipality, under lockdown for one month to contain the spread of the deadly novel coronavirus (Covid-19) in the Philippines. Duterte declared the suspension of domestic travel to and from Metro Manila from March 15 until April 14. At least 12 million Filipinos residing in Manila, Quezon City, Caloocan, Las Piñas, Makati, Malabon, Mandaluyong, Marikina, Muntinlupa, Navotas, Parañaque, Pasay, Pasig, San Juan, Taguig, and Valenzuela, as well as the municipality of Pateros will be affected by the lockdown. Duterte made the announcement via live social media broadcast on Thursday, after announcing the coronavirus alert level in the Philippines has been raised to Code Red Sublevel 2, where there is evidence of community transmission. Duterte also suspended classes in all school levels and government work in the executive branch for one month or until April 12. The move follows confirmation on Saturday of the Philippines’ first domestic transmission of the virus, which has killed two people there and infected 53. Duterte was tested for the new coronavirus on Thursday, officials said, as key government buildings were being disinfected over an exposure scare. The Philippines has seen a jump this week in cases, including people who recently attended events with Senate lawmakers and government officials, potentially exposing them. The Senate building and Philippine central bank were undergoing cleaning, and several officials announced they would isolate themselves as a precaution. Duterte, who at 74 is in a vulnerable age group for the virus, underwent testing because he has been in regular contact with some of those officials.
  8. If I had a pound for every time you mentioned that cruise ship I could afford to move back to the UK.
  9. Italy getting it bad, 2300 new cases & 196 more deaths today. 827 total deaths, 1,045 recovered.
  10. Not really a big enough sample though is it? Also says that 444 of those 700 are still infected with 32 'critical' according to this website: https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/
  11. Looks like it's much more deadly to me, people were talking of 1-2% mortality rate before. Most European countries have a mortality rate more like 10-20%. Doubt it will stay that high but looks like it will be higher than 2% to me. You can't calculate mortality rate based on total cases either, some of them will still die. Should be calculated against those who have recovered.
