    There is some entertainment to be had. Apparently something like 30% of the population of the US will not drink Corona beer in case they catch the virus.

    Rush Limbaugh has told his listeners that the virus is a Democrat plot and they're just out to get Trump.

    Trump Jr has said on TV that the Democrats are hoping the virus will kill millions so that it will end his father's "run of successes".

    And people believe this shit, the stupidity is mind boggling.

    I think I might buy a carton of Corona as a gesture of support.

    Anecdotally, imports of motorcycle consumables, filters etc which are made in China, most of them I suspect, are drying up.

    If it's true, then a lot of other imports will be affected.

    Might be something to think about in coming months, I would be really unhappy if I had to re-use an old filter after an oil change.

    There will be a big vacuum once China gets back on line attempting to fill demand.

    The rural postie doesn't have a huge basket of silly little items from Aliexpress & Wish every day now, which means she gets an hour longer in bed in the morning. Works for me.
    It isn't affecting the tinkerage & buildage of bikes so far yet.

    I've also been getting in supplies. None of that Corona beer for this lad. I'm getting in the good stuff. Plus I heard alcohol is an antiseptic.

    It's a chinese scam to jack up the price of face masks. Look at ebay, 50 cent masks going for $80 for a box of 10. Cunts!

    Silly buggers. The advice on TV last night was, in the event you came down with the virus, to self isolate, order your groceries online, and get someone to leave them on your door step.

    If the virus actually arrives, I'll make a mutual arrangement with some of the neighbours. I see though that at his latest rally Trump said the virus was a Democrat hoax. So that's OK, no problem.
