Dear members, we understand that there is a lot of concern at the moment regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19) and that there have been a lot of posts and questions relating to it and also sharing of information.
While we wish everyone to feel supported it would be helpful to restrict the comments to one thread per day. One of our admins or moderators will post each morning with the title Coronavirus post for Tuesday 17th March (or whatever the date is for that day).
This will be your chance to chat to others, share worries, seek reassurance or post something humorous that might put a smile on someone else's face.
However, please note, that in order to keep this site focused on PMR and GCA and to keep it factual we will be deleting separate posts made on the subject and asking the poster to repost in reply to the daily thread.
Also please note the following rules:
Please do not share information that is not from an official source. There are many urban myths and fake stories floating around the internet and it is not helpful to share them. We will remove them. Please refer to the relevant authority's website for factual information on symptoms, treatment and necessary action eg see NHS website if you are UK based.
Please do not share your political views about how the various governments are dealing with the virus. By all means if you're concerned about isolating for example, share that concern, there may be lots of wisdom here to help you. If you wish to discuss your opinions on your president or prime minister etc, then please discuss them on your own social media.
