Wuhan virus spread to France

Arsenal fans complaining Emirates is a tourist attraction with substantial tourists attending games at Emirates.

Now, how dangerous will football ground be with Chinese tourists attending games?
Here is how Wuhan virus can be spread by a "super-spreader"

Tier #1
- exposed within 2m of super-spreader for more than 30 minutes.

Tier #2
- exposed within 2m but less than 30 minutes - e.g. counter staff, buying programmes and tickets, etc.

Tier #3
- exposed less than 2 minutes and more than 10m away, say, in the underground, on a bus or plane or ferry.

Recommendation:
Wear a surgical mask (not a N95 mask like fighting bush fire in Australia or dangerous smog in New Delhi or China) if you are sneezing or coughing.
It is sheer bad luck if you are standing next to a coughing and sneezing Chinese tourist for more than 30 minutes and/or within 3m of them.
Please … just move away immediately from fellow fans who are coughing or sneezing; and as a public service, insist that he or she put on a surgical mask.

By the way, all football supporter/fan clubs must insist that all football stadia must have boxes of surgical masks available for fans should they wanted to wear them.

Best wishes, take precautions, be safe and good health supporting your favourite teams "live" in a stadium! (Sm154)

A word of advice.
Surgical masks are flying off the shelf rapidly and out of stock in China.

Before panic set in, my suggestion is to buy a few boxes of surgical masks, i.e. those blue outer layer and white inner layer with a soft wire on top to shape to the profile of your face.

Like SARS, a matter of time before it spreads to Great Britain.

Personal hygiene.

And oh, Shane and Flava.
After you finished your "thing" in a park or a toilet booth, do not touch your face in public until your wash your hands thoroughly.
Scrub your hands thoroughly with hand sanitiser and interlacing them (no, your hands and not each other hands) to wash between fingers for 20 to 30 seconds and then rinse. If that guy behind you complain that you took too long, just mention "Wuhan virus" .

Well, WHO is worried about pandemic now.
And Euro2020 may very well be cancelled.

Blessing in disguise in getting out of UEL Cup.
We don't have to travel to Europe! (Sm152)
