Mainland China has had no new local coronavirus infections over the past 24 hours – the first time since the outbreak began in December. Beijing is still struggling to contain imported cases of the disease.
Notably, the purported epicenter of the epidemic – Wuhan, in Hubei province – recorded no new locally-transmitted infections. The same was true across China, according to reports, citing the Chinese government.

Health authorities reported 34 new cases on Thursday, but said that all involved people who had come to China from abroad. Twenty-one of the imported infections were in Beijing, marking a daily record for the Chinese capital.

In total, confirmed cases in mainland China have reached 80,928, according to the latest data, with 3,245 deaths as of the end of Wednesday.

The number of deaths in Europe from the virus surpassed those in Asia on Wednesday, raising concerns that Covid-19 could lead to a long-term health crisis for the West



The spread of the coronavirus has become a black swan event for the global economy. It is no longer whether the US and other economies will slip into recession. The question now is how deep and how long the recession will last. It is going to get worse before it gets better.

The European Central Bank (ECB), meanwhile, said it would buy up €750 billion ($820 billion) in bonds throughout 2020, injecting new money into Europe’s struggling economy in a bout of β€˜pandemic quantitative easing’ – a move the bank hopes will stave off a coronavirus-induced recession.



The World Health Organization (WHO) has confirmed that the first vaccine trial for the Covid-19 virus has begun as the world continues to battle the growing pandemic.

New cases of COVID-19 in South Korea appear to be declining, and on Friday the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC) reported more recoveries than new cases.

South Korea has had one of the largest outbreaks of the new coronavirus, and nearly 8,000 people have contracted the virus, which has killed 67 people in the country. The outbreak appears to be waning, though, and on Friday the KCDC reported that 177 additional people were pronounced recovered from the virus and that there were only 110 new cases

Here’s a poser.

It’s around this time we get the season book renewal requests.

Starting again to finish the season in April is a joke and I have very serious doubts about it being June. My guess is we’re looking at late July or even later as we can forget playing behind closed doors if clubs refuse and we will still need all the emergency services elsewhere.

So with that in mind and the knock on affect of the new season not starting until way September or October; who is going to part with their hard earned when jobs all over the place will be a severe risk?

That’s the real cost which will see clubs go. Sheer lack of cash flow and my start date suggestions are just that. No guarantees at all.

I’ll renew but I fear I’ll be in a small minority who can.

celtic put a tweet out yesterday and as a footnote added a bit about renewing the season tickets online.

to much backlash.

the ended up deleting it and then sending it out again without the footnote.

shameless man.

It'll be some time before anything is back to normal but amazingly, football will take up a lot of people's money because it's what we do.

I'll never take another Celtic v Hamilton on a Wednesday night in -2 degree conditions for granted ever again

Season ticket renewals are going to take some hit Ginger, that is a given I reckon.

People don't even know right now what they are purchasing, how many games? How many cup games? European games?

Will there be a LC?
Will it be a condensed season and will the price reflect this?

and so on...…..

If null and void happens refunds on this season for a start.

I just can’t see null and void although I suppose the EPL decision today will give us the guidance.

Time to scrap the League Cup..?

posted on 19/3/20

I know it has sponsors etc... but in what might be a condensed season it should be the first comp scrapped.

Replays in Cup comps a no starter obviously as well.
