Sold my bond allocation on Friday in preparation for buying stocks at panic induced prices.
lol Trust you to benefit from a crisis!
It's headlines like this though that seriously bug me, , particularly as Hancock never said anything of the sort.
Also can you imagine what it would be like trying to put a lockdown on our towns and cities particularly as the British aren't nearly as submissive as the Chinese are? https://www.expressandstar.com/news/uk-news/2020/03/01/uk-cities-could-be-shut-down-amid-coronavirus-outbreak-matt-hancock/
It bugs me as well that the media are so hell-bent on trying to scare us witless when what most people want is plain truthful facts, although I realise that these don't sell newspapers. Fortunately I've listened to doctors being interviewed on the radio plus some people who actually contracted the illness, so I'm not into wasting my energy on panicking about it, even though I am well aware that, if there is an epidemic, that given my age and health I'm (a) quite likely to get it, and (b) die from it, but take the view that if it's going to happen then it'll happen. For the vast majority of people though it'll only be a relatively mild illness lasting for a few days, although if you believe the media it's the Plague revisited and that we're all doomed! Also according to Australian health authorities who have been keeping a close watch on this virus, children are the least likely to be infected, although why this is the case nobody as yet knows.
