    Just heard that Denmark are closing all public schools,pre-schools and educational institutions, might be a good Idea I wish our swedish government should do as well, in conjuction of banning larger crowds and removing the qualifying period for the sickness benefits to make people stay at home when they are feeling ill.

    Just watched the most recent press conference from our government, and only now..it seems that the primeminister has woken up to realize that it is a very serious situation, which he also is stressing very much..so finally a completly different look from him ..as they seem to realize they canīt continue to say..we shouldnīt be worried.

    And as such..I also think they should close schools for a while.

    Yep I personally find it a good move, although I might have to cancel my upcoming California trip unfortunately.

    Probably too late as the drastic increase will come in 2-3 weeks in Europe in my opinion. and the virus will be around for many months. Also closing school will expose elderly more since they might be the ones taking care of the kids.

    Get informed. That is not flu and if it will spread like flu there will be a multitude of lethal cases. We're just at the beginning now.

    I donīt agree on this, I think the risc of kids spreading the infection around Generally is far higher than elderly getting exposed to their specific kids, and if any family has a common sense of responisbility, if they see their kids being sick..they donīt let their elderly take care of the kids.

    Now norway as denmark also decided to close the shools, sweden doesnīt ..which I feel is the wrong decision to take, the state epidemic expert just says...no need to close down unecessary..blah.
    They will have a meeting with their nordic collegues, maybe they change their mind, I think they will have to do it anyway soon..so why not as soon as possible.

    Our primeminister emphazises the importance of Everyones responsibility, to make sure if you are sick with these symtoms...donīt go out and meet others.

    Ireland has announced today that schools and colleges will be closed for two weeks, will the UK follow suit? I somehow doubt it but you never know. I work in a University with many foreign students (including a large contingent of Chinese) so it's really quite a surprise we haven't had an official case of it here yet.

    Closing colleges/universities has its own risk, as most students must leave campus and travel to their homes in various parts of the world...offering more possibility for viral spread. I have a student on her way back home now. We're preparing a bed for her in the garage. There's no need to bring that viral risk into the home.

    As a consumer of a lot of media on this topic, this interview is the most comprehensive. It's definitely worth a listen.

    Now I just have to question is that to protect the spread in the US or Europe? Or maybe it's to prevent both from intermingling? A growing number of Canadians returning from trips to the US recently tested positive so the spread it likely huge.

    In my opinion the number of the cases that likely exist in the US is way higher than they currently have confirmed or estimate which is likely somewhat the same in Europe and even here in Canada.

    Ya heard that as well. Many more celebrities will likely have it soon as well since most of them are very social since that's a large part of what they do.
