I’d be curious to know what the Thai measurements/units column indicates for concentration, as there seems little correlation with numbers in relation to % concentration.
5% = 5, 10 or 1 Thai wotsits
But
2.5% = up to 30
I think the dosage is one swig every 4 hours until symptoms desist. Something like that...

Have most of the symptoms but no testing as they have questioned them instead.

"Have you got the virus"
"No"
"Ok no problem"
Scarry, they either have absolutely no test kits or they simply don´t care about their people.
Both. And if these Chinese are infected the incompetent authority reps will also now become vectors for the virus as their protection is non existent.

I've often wondered about these 99.9% claims.

Does it mean it kills 999 out of 1000 known germs and virus', in which case what is the name of that last hardy one that survives? Covid-19 perhaps?

or,

Does it kills very nearly all of every germ or virus, but a little bit of each always survive and, given enough time in your body, it will multiply back to it original pre-Dettol numbers? In which case, what's the point of it?

Or does it just smell disinfectanty and that makes us feel safe?

I wonder if i am the only one to be worrying,
the US states they don't have enough kits to test for the virus
so where does that leave Cambodia, Laos, Burma, Indonesia, India, all of Africa and lots others.

will people be dying yet be listed as just deaths, cause they were not, (or couldn't afford) to be tested?

Current deaths; 3,491
Infected; 101,978
Recovered; 57,376

97 countries +china have at least 1 case, Thats over 50% of the countries of the world
In a nation run by swine, all pigs are upward-mobile and the rest of us are fucked until we can put our acts together: not necessarily to win, but mainly to keep from losing completely. HST

Donald Trump shows the full extent of his compassion for the cruise ship virus victims. :facepalm:
The coronavirus is bringing out a nasty streak in some people, but I'd rather think about all the good and selfless people out there, such as the medical workers that are on the frontline against the virus and working under more difficult conditions than usual.

Coronavirus: Trump hurls insults as 21 cases confirmed on cruise ship
Sam Levin and agencies
Sat 7 Mar 2020 03.00 GMT
Donald Trump used a freewheeling press conference on Friday, intended to provide updates on the coronavirus, as an opportunity to attack Democrats, praise his own intelligence, lash out at CNN and spread false and misleading information about the status of the outbreak, as a slew of new cases were confirmed aboard a cruise ship off the California coast.

Speaking at the Centers for Disease Control’s (CDC) main campus in Atlanta, Georgia, while wearing his red “Keep America Great” re-election campaign hat, the president went on a rant criticizing Washington state’s governor, Jay Inslee, as a “snake” and saying he disagreed with his vice-president’s complimentary remarks toward the Democrat. Inslee, who ran for president last year, is overseeing the response to the most serious outbreak in the US.

[b[/b]

The president further implied that the coronavirus test was available to anyone who needed it, even though his own administration has acknowledged that there is currently a shortage among US health care providers.

Trump’s remarks came as the vice-president, Mike Pence, announced that 21 people on a cruise ship being held off San Francisco had tested positive for coronavirus. He also urged older Americans to “use caution” in planning any cruise ship vacation.

From the link in the post above:
Some major businesses in the Seattle area, where researchers say the virus may have circulated undetected for weeks, have shut down some operations or urged employees to work from home.
What wold be the odds the same has been going on in Cambodia?
