In Asterix and the Chariot Race, the Roman chariot driver was Coronavirus and he wore a mask.

So we were warned way back.

(Sorry, I see it is on the joke page as well)

There is another book written in 1981 talking about the coronavirus (Actually Wuhan-400) called "The eyes of darkness" by Dean Koontz.

The coronavirus is an old virus with different strains. Discovered in the 60's and the virus originate from long before then.

Plenty of that around, but Zim is particularly susceptible. I think RGM died about 1 million times in the last 20 years. Wishful thinking, and a failed state = bush telegraph. I heard from someone the other day that all the Thetford Rhinos had been poached, spoke to my friends on the ground and none have heard a thing...

From their website...


According to data by analysts BCA, industry locations found in Wuhan – the epicenter of the Chinese coronavirus outbreak – are heavily geared towards the automotive industries. The epidemic that has brought life and industry to a halt in many places in the country is expected to compromise economies around the world that depend on merchandise and industrial parts from China.
China is the biggest manufacturing hub in the world and its exports are ubiquitous. In Wuhan specifically, technology products and those important for the chemical and health care industries are also being produced. As a result of the disease, Chinese, Asian and global GDPs are expected to suffer.

...heard this morning on the news that about 2200 died from this and a further 78900 is infected. It is also said that the fatal ratio is at around 2%, now I am bad at maths and we know the Chinese are under reporting the stats, so here goes, say the deaths are more like 3000, then at 2% it means that at least the infected number should be around the 150 000 - that makes a hell of a difference and the two hospitals makes sense now. Sad thing is that the over populated environment contributes to the spread - in Africa you can just separate the people 10 metres apart and they can live happily on as the virus dies outside the body and within 4 hours after someone has deceased.
