Short term pain for NHS but probably positive eventual outcome due to fewer old people requiring long term care

Emptier roads, trains

House price - agreed, absutely

More opportunities offered to work from home, as I can see commuting being really risky

1). People getting universally bollocked for not covering their mouths when coughing in public;

2). Something new to talk about at the barbers other than weather and football;

3). Being able to Irish-up my coffee using the ubiquitous hand sanitizer dispensers that have appeared all over the office.

- End of wet markets, or much more regulation 

- End of the hunting of rare near extinct animals such as pangolins for questionable medicines/health benefits

- More people will have more meaningful relationships as people realise life is fragile.

I'll add more as I think of them.

This is the second outbreak in 20 years due to their cruel and filthy backward culture.

If serious numbers of people die and the economy is seriously disrupted as is beginning to seem likely, property prices will drop. Not much though IMO, as central banks will get out the printing presses again.

Well I bought my dream retro mountain bike right at the beginning of this outbreak (come back TMT!) - If I catch it and die, I know I have achieved what I wanted in life!

I don't need to wait to come out to the other side of this outbreak.

The cull in population will also show us if the inflation of House prices is due to the population or the money printing. My moneys on the money printing. Ie no fall in prices even as population tanks, but money printing increases.

The end of Wokeness.

The pious and virtuous opinions of these people has spread this disease beyond where it should have got to, because you are not allowed to offend any Nation or Culture.

I'm sure Churchill would have stopped flights to and from China a couple of weeks ago.

Is picking a share for a company that does really well out of it, the worse it gets, bad etiquette for the thread?

Masks and quack remedies will be doing well. Drug companies will no doubt save the world.
