Re: Coronavirus

Re: Coronavirus

Cummings must surely be toast?

Re: Not just a shit beer: Corona and football

I've just read online that Germanys infection rate has crept up to 0.96
I don't know where this figure is coming from or why it is being peddled. The rate, confirmed by the RKI this morning, is 0.76.

Re: Not just a shit beer: Corona and football
