If you take care of yourself , eat good food , overdose of vitamins when you get flu, in good health , you should be ok

I’ve you don’t then your in trouble

Touch wood I’ve not had a bad cold or flu for a few years , I think I’ve got a nice immune system. Intend to take double or triple the vitamin daily allowance when I had glue or feel like I’m getting flu ,
Don’t get me wrong I’ve proberly had flu in the last few years but I handle it well , still goto work , and carry on as normal , but with good rest ,good food , good vitamins and saunas !

Like a few others have said , I think the paid media are blowing it up , big phama company’s will be lapping it up right now , expect corona virus flu meds in the next 2 weeks !

And for people without (small) children of their own: stay away from those walking Petri dishes.

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

If we count the thousands of infections( reported by the media), the relationship with mortality it’s not very high.But influence is easily transmitted,
don’t know if Germs survive during shipment,better not buy for a while until is end

but can germs and viruses survive being in a cargo plane at low temps, minus 30oC ?

ill wear latex gloves and clean the stuff that comes with some anti bactiria and some alcohol

and maybe steam clean

or is this to far!

I’d touch a light from China today with no hesitations. The thing is hygiene – wash your hands properly before eating anything or putting them near your mouth and it’s sorted.

Also don’t forget to wash the flashlight with soap and hot water.

Ain’t it better to use alcohol or UV waves?

I think some viruses can survive 48 hours outside the body and on synthetic materials. Ie. Genuine leather should be a way more unhygienic than synthetic leather, as viruses and microbes thrive much batter on natural surfaces compared to synthetic ones.

My guess is extra scrutiny will be given to all packages coming in from China, to ensure no one is trying to bring in “the bug” in some survivable transport environment. It will likely delay shipments currently enroute.

I’m OK with it. There isn’t anything urgent that I’m waiting for.

Doesn’t protect against mudane diseases you should be wiping/washing a torch against to begin with, scaremongering or not.

Copper foil is better. Copper has an antimicrobial effect.

Hope it turns out to be not much worse than the flu because it looks to me like containment in China was a complete failure.
