The premier league and the UK government will be looking first and foremost of the safety of all in England.

Football matches having been cancelled in Italy and the threat of an outbreak across England has now seen the premier league banning the pre match fair play hand shakes.
It's also reported that matches will be played behind closed doors.

This is both a concerning time in football and in life.

I hope it doesnít disrupt very much, Vill I An.

I think some newspapers might wind it up.

And particularly I should ask how will people support Villa because should we be engaging in public spaces with others if they don't do lock down ?
And if they don't lock down travel and public performances is that more for economic reasons ?
How do the premier league and Aston villa tackle this issue?
Like will the players now not celebrate with one another ?
I think it's all getting out of hand by the media but what's happening in Italy and how they are stopping all their sports could happen here ?

We havenít stopped fans from attending matches in the UK yet.

Maybe we just go with the flow.

From what I read and heard that it was most likely a mortality issue for elderly or those already very sick.
So the general public would generally recover from this flu .
I do agree with what you say:
 
I hope it doesnít disrupt very much, Vill I An.

I think some newspapers might wind it up.

I just find it very disturbing that it's being made into a major issue and having a great impact on all aspects of life including the football and our club Aston villa.
I would have to conclude it will be disruptive to the season in as much as there will be changes in regular practices be it players or supporters.
The impact of virus hasn't appeared to be an issue for sports players however I'm sure the premier league will have advisors on how to deal with this situation .
I only posted this up as thought it was valid to supporters here as well as the general issue despite it being a football forum.
I'm just wondering if people will be tempted to keep away from matches
Thanks

In Italy games are being played behind closed doors.
That is what will happen in the UK

If it gets to the stage where seasons are abandoned or all games are behind closed doors then most likely football wil be the least of most people's worries.
You also have the situation where outside the PL most footbal league/non league clubs will be fucked with playing games and no gate etc money coming in as well as refunding tickets already sold.

I would send Jack to Italy on a private jet. Not get off the plane and fly straight back, No one would go near him.

Unprecedented times possibly for large scale events.

It may be relatively inert on people who are fit and well but those with conditions like asthma and older people are extremely vulnerable to this. I believe out of the 10 or so deaths in the USA 7/8 were all in the same care home. Yes the press love this sort of thing, but Big disruption is ahead.

0.001% of the population have so far caught this mass super spreading virus that is causing worldwide panic.

I fancy my chances of getting through this first global virus since social media has really taken off................

There are no projections that suggest 0.001% of the population will be affected. The number keeps increasing. You can keep acting full Boomer and using this as a stick to beat people who use social media, for some bizarre reason, if you like. I'll continue to listen to all the actual medical experts who are calling this a crisis. Because it is.

So far 0.001% of the population have been infected.

In China, the epicentre, 0.005% of the population has been infected.

New cases in China are declining.

3,000 people have died.

Swine flu killed between 150,000 and 550,000. I do not remember this mass panic then.

Social media and 24 hour news media has caused mass panic.
