    Why is a second wave in autumn likely if the measures mean there is no virus circulating, like some countries are saying (yes, China ), so if not 'out there' to catch then can't be caught?

    Will it be hiding in other species or hibernating for summer?

    Seems the only way the virus can live is by finding new hosts, so as long as countries not declared virus free have international travel curtailed or quaranteened then in theory it seems possible the virus will just disappear like the original SARS virus.

    What are the facts about this? Any non-cretins know?
    To answer my own question (in a way) as seemingly no one else is able to ...

    New Zealand reports no new community cases

    NZ is now a safe zone after starting severe lockdown early, and having an easily controllable border it is now able to keep on top of incoming risk by way of quarantine. So if they remain virus free then proves the easiest way to fight the virus, without a vaccine, is to starve it of hosts until it dies out.

    Shame the UK was too slow to be able to do similar, also having an easily controllable border. Only now are they on about quarantining incoming people, so maybe will get to a similar position as NZ in a few months.
    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down. Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.

    Malta has a 14 day quarantine on arrival. I haven't seen many stats about how they're doing.

    too true, so I just took the mick!

    Just trying to raise the standards. Even cretins can avoid being morons, though I may still be an idiot, rather that than an imbecile.

    That would explain quite a lot, but it doesn't adequately explain his constant urge to scream "cretin" like someone with advanced Tourettes.
