    TBH...what illnesses doesn't cause fatigue?
    I am an asthmatic, minus the fever, I've been living with both of those issues my whole life too.

    I guess you would be especially vulnerable to the symptoms of this virus. Better avoid travelling to China.

    I'm not surprised the Chinese (state) didn't like that graphic. I have to say it made me genuinely LOL, though. A tually out loud. I got a funny look from the wife so I showed her, didn't say a word, just showed her and there was a moment of blank look, and she LOL'd too.

    As for no sense of humour, at the risk of judging by anecdotal experience, Danes certainly do have a sense of bumour, but it's quite dry, subtle and quite sardonic. Very similar to British humour, in fact.

    One of my Danish friends' humour is very subtle, so much so that it can slip past like a Ninja in the night, and about two minutes after he says something, typically when you're halfway through a different sentence you suddenly stop,think "Wait .... what?" as the jibe finally sinks in and when you look at him there's a wry smile in his eyes, with a "Gotcha" look and overtones of "What took you so long?"
    A lesson learned from PeterB about dignity in adversity, so Peter, In Memorium, "Onwards and Upwards".

    Just got an email about display panel factories in China:

    “Display facilities in Wuhan currently are dealing with the very real impacts of the coronavirus outbreak,” said David Hsieh, senior director, displays, at IHS Markit technology research. “These factories are facing shortages of both labor and key components as a result of mandates designed to limit the contagion’s spread. In the face of these challenges, top display suppliers in China have informed our experts that a near-term production decline is unavoidable.”
