No one.

Italy has way more cases and they have only quarantined the most affected area after several weeks.

Please stop panicking.

You are much, much, much more likely to either have

(1) nothing, or

(2) the common cold.

I sneezed today. Must be the plague

Overacting like this is unhealthy. It leads to shortages in supplies, Worst treatment towards people just because they believe their infects and worst it limits the medics to actually deal with this well. We will get a rise in cases. That will happen but the chances of you getting infected are so slim right now its not even worth worrying over

Yes, so are schools in China, HK, Japan and Korea etc. etc.

Italy didn't go into full lockdown (and even today, it's northern Italy) for weeks until recently.

Therefore - we won't see a full lockdown in a week. It may happen at some point in the UK - but not in a week.

We have 273 cases in the UK and 2 deaths. People need to stop panicking!! Unless the cases start hitting 5 figures then why are we panicking. Look at how many die from flu each year. People are overreacting on a crazy level, no bleeding hand sanitizer or antibacterial wipes left on the shelves cause of people panic buying. Shops are imposing 2 packets of wipes per customer. Everyone needs to get a grip!

There's something about us Brits and panic buying. It's ridiculous, embarrassing and entirely irrational for what is supposed to be a fairly pragmatic population. Some of us will remember the fuel shortages in 2001 - same thing happened, with people queuing up round the block to buy petrol they didn't need 'just in case'.

I think people are panicking because the number of cases seems to be exponentially rising but yeah I'm not too bothered atm.

People aren't panicking about only the deaths but how quickly it spreads... (Also Em.-.)

Agree. While the death rate is around 3% atm (or 6% if you compare deaths to actual recoveries), 15-20% of cases seem to become serious, so if too many people become infected there won’t be enough resources so we will see the death rate start to tend towards this number. People will panic buy because they see others doing it, so even if they don’t think they’ll be ill they will think other people will buy stuff so there will be none left for them.

I am very confident I won’t die, but I suspect it will cause much disruption to society due to the number of serious cases. If it infects 10,000 I’d be confident we’ll see lockdown type measures being put in place (closing schools, public transport and having people work at home etc).
