Well the Caronavirus has arrived in the UK. It is becoming very real now. It's only two confirmed cases in York for the moment let's hope it stays that way but with an incubation period of 1-14 days the virus could explode very quickly depending on how many people they came into contact with.
The official advise is masks are no use as viruses can bread on them.Just paid £800 for 10 boxes of masks (100 masks per box) to be sent to friends back in Hong Kong. Can definitely tell you people are nervous, masks have sold out here, and if you can get your hands on them they have increased in price by 800%
Have also been informed some of the smaller dentists in Leeds closed temporarily last week........because they ran out of masks. Indirect issues caused by the virus
I'm not sure where you heard that, but I can guarantee you that it is 100% incorrect. Viruses do not breed. They infect the cells of their host and use the cells genetic machinery and metabolism to replicate. They cannot replicate outside of their host cell.The official advise is masks are no use as viruses can bread on them.
