830 cases in a disease that originated in a city of 11m. Seems like even if you live in Wuhan that you would have to be very unlucky to catch it as things stand.

That's what tabloids do though isn't it, they're about as newsworthy as Beano. I heard that most of the people that died from it were people already suffering from other conditions that probably had severely compromised immune systems etc.

I don't know the exact mortality rate so far, but from what I've read, almost all the fatalities have been elderly people with a weakened immune system and other underlying conditions.

The media love a good health scares, it really gets the click-counter spinning.

They're having a field day saying this could be as bad as the SARS epidemic ... which despite causing a massive scare too, only killed 800-odd worldwide, when regular flu epidemics wipe out thousands every year.

It's not just the tabloids when it comes to health scares though.

The Guardian are splashing this all over their front pages too. And I imagine U.S. media will be having a field day.

This current scare also feeds nicely into racist/xenophobic narratives and 'all that is bad' about China. Rumours are already circulating about how it came about, with the two leading stories putting it down either to eating bats or its having escaped from a lab, i.e. because they're a 'filthy', 'disgusting', 'sinister' bunch

Think it's generally thought to be, yes. Thought to have killed between 50 and 100 million. But even strains that aren't particularly bad kill bucketloads of people.

From Wikipedia, which in turn quotes the World Health Organization:

"Influenza spreads around the world in yearly outbreaks, resulting in about three to five million cases of severe illness and about 290,000 to 650,000 deaths."

I think the Black Death was deadlier in terms of percentage of population killed, at least in Europe

Yeah probably, but I was talking specifically about flu.

I'm not sure which exact disease or diseases were involved, but the death rates amongst the native populations of the Americans when European colonization began were on another scale, as they had no natural immunity to a lot of the stuff we carried over.

Can't remember exactly which territory it referred to, maybe the Aztec Empire or some such, but I read recently that within a few years of Europeans settling there the indigenous population was estimated to have dropped from 10 million to 1 million.

Frank on New Three deal:

"It’s a big deal for us, linking up with Three and we’re very happy with it. They’re the leaders in 5G I’m told."

Frank on Tammy injury:

"The good news is he hasn’t fractured anything. That is the good news, but we still don’t know the full extent, it’s not clear at the moment."

Frank on Transfers:

"There is choice. It’s not the ideal window, history has proven that. It is about getting the choice right. The club know my thoughts on it."

Smallpox was the biggest killer, apparently

Frank on Soumare interest

"I am aware of him, but not on my radar for this window."

posted on 24/1/20

Top four, could be clearer?

Frank: "I am not happy, it’s more of the fact we could be in better daylight in fourth. In the last two games alone we have created chances. Newcastle two shots and a goal, Arsenal two shots two goals. We need to get that right."

Frank on Kepa bas reviews:

"He will have to deal with that. That’s what being a footballer is about. There is spotlight on them. The important thing for that is not to get embroiled in what people are saying, not just Kepa but any player.

I am not looking at strengthening that position now. Kepa knows and is honest that there have been some mistakes."

Frank on Congestion in fixtures and injuries:

"It’s a hard one. It’s not a science. It can happen at any time. There feels like there has been a lot of congestion. Maybe it should be looked at. "

How have you found the window?

Frank: "It’s tough because you want to bring in players. There was demand to bring in players in January at Derby as well. You are striving to bring in the best."

Frank on Kante position:

"I haven’t always played him in the same role as Sarri. We have played with two midfielders in plenty of times. He wasn’t a holder under Kante. I have used him as I see fit."

Caballero to start?

Frank: "Willy will start tomorrow. I have seen nothing but good things from him.:
