So update on the covid situation, there has now been a confirmed case in the town I work in here in Wales (UK) and I'm in retail. So yay that's fun. On Saturday I had a guy who licked his fingers to get his bank card out of his wallet to give to me, and an hour ago I had an older woman who was licking her fingers to swipe unlock her phone and I had to use it because it was having issues she wanted me to look at. Absolutely disgusting. No, revolting. Guess I'll just die ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
@Jipz, just use hand sanitizer before touching your face my man, and you’ll be good!
@The forest, yeah the company issued multiple hand sanitisers to every UK store 2 weeks back (really wish this was a thing anyway, people and their phones are disgusting) about 30 mins ago a woman didn't know how to put a url into the address bar (it was already entered anyway) but I squirted the screen with screen cleaner and wiped it down with a microfiber cloth. Her screen was disgusting I don't even care if someone gets offended. There was a full layer of grease over this screen. Half of them aren't bad or with normal smudging, and phone cases are so bad. People don't even take their phone out of it for 2 years and it's just full of filth and very commonly orange gunk. Like real common. Ugh. People are just disgusting. But anyway, it's more about just being so close to people and interacting with so many on a daily basis, that is what I meant.
@Jipz, you’re in the UK, you’re better off than those of us in the states regarding it.
@Cloverleaf, yeah i said a few weeks ago when it first popped up that the virus is going to run riots through the US because people won't want to be tested and stuff like that. Luckily the US is massive, and there is a live tracker someone made on reddit I just seen that you can see where all the US cases are located and the current stats. Go to r/Coronavirus and in the hot section a few posts down its linked there.
@Jipz, this post made me go wash my hands
@Jipz, just up the road in Southampton, they've closed Southampton general hospitals A&E due to the virus
@TheMightyImp, and in Brighton, they've closed two doctors surgeries because the staff had it.
@Jipz, Today I was served by a food worker with gloves. When I walked up he was on his phone with his gloves on. Seriously....
@Jipz, this post made my dunk my iPhone in clorox
@Diabolik, honestly, you're better off. Phones are nasty. People are nasty.
@TheMightyImp, two days ago we got our first confirmed student case here in Oxford - scary times in such a close-contact university environment
@payaso568, yep. Still, if you are healthy you should be ok.
@payaso568, apparently Southampton hospital worker in intensive care tested positive, and they closed the ward.
@Jipz, SHINEEEII COUGHKYOIN
@Jipz, we clean holiday lets and one thing I can say about humans, they're a big bunch of disgusting messy horrible things, and no wonder Italy has it bad, its ski season there and pretty much every wealthy person skis in Italy and there's only one thing on this earth that's worse than the human I described above and that's a wealthy veriant
@Jipz, I read somewhere that hand sanitizer has to be at least 60% alcohol based to kill the virus but goof luck mate
@Jipz, yikes man, suspected cases around where I live (eastern us) but nothing confirmed yet. Fingers crossed, keep your coughy filters on, and let's hope for the best!
@Jipz, it’s no worse than having a cold. You’ll be fine.
@Jipz, simple handwashing will protect you, and if you're under 40, the fatality rate is 1/5 of 1%. Saying you're going to die is just being a whiny attention seeker.
@Jipz, good luck brother, the hospital I work in just got its first this weekend and apparently the patient was in my department a week and a half ago.
@Jipz, i work for a cell phone company and we were all talking about this today. Peoples phones are absolutely disgusting.
Colonel there’s a strange moving rock and the loudness of my barking has alerted the guards
Heck off moving rock.
Covid19 will make room. free up resources and reduce carbon emissions. create employment. and implement population control.
@Cuactemoc4919, and relieve the burden on social security
I am looking forward to embarce the choas of covid 19. Hopefully it will wipe out humans.
Colonel it appears to be a demon
That’s a turtle not a snake
