    Yes And although 812 (Italy) is a tragic loss in 24 hours see below:

    30th March in Italy also saw:

    1. Lowest number of new cases in the last 13 days (since March 17)

    2. Highest number of new recoveries (1,590) since the beginning of the epidemic

    Let’s hope that is a sign that the peak has been reached and the beginning of the social distancing effect. I am expecting a significant drop in numbers soon. Let’s hope so..

    I've seen reports that the wet markets in China have re-opened.
    Bearing in mind that these are supposedly responsible for creating the virus, I find it remarkable that the authorities can't find an alternative food source for the people there, and keep these markets closed.

    "As talks over the conclusion of the Premier league campaign continue, the government have backed the plan to broadcast all 92 games live in a “TV mega-event.”

    It is almost guaranteed that the rest of the top-flight fixtures will be played behind closed doors, with safety issues restricting access to stadiums."

    Perhaps a lottery draw after...

    "Fury as Non-League Clubs Write Open Letter to FA About Cancelling Season
    Sports LawFury as Non-League Clubs Write Open Letter to FA About Cancelling Season

    Over 100 non-league clubs have written to the Football Association (FA) over their decision to null and void entirely the 2019/2020 football season for steps 3-6 of the non-league and tiers 3-7 of the Womens’ non- league. There will be no promotion or relegation.

    The clubs are furious that there has been a complete lack of consultation with them over their decision.

    The decision has not yet been ratified by the FA Council. The full letter can be seen here .

    Some clubs have already secured promotion and mathematically cannot be caught by other clubs. Jersey Bulls FC have won all 27 of their league games in the Combined Counties Division 1 and will now miss out on promotion.

    The current coronavirus outbreak and the suspension of all football is an unprecedented event.

    The rules of the Association give the FA the power to suspend the game entirely. They may also extend the periods for playing, as from time to time, in its discretion, shall be deemed necessary or desirable, and agreements between clubs, players, and club officials, officials and match officials shall be subject to such decisions.

    The rules also state that the season shall terminate not later than 1st June. Europe’s governing body, UEFA, have loosely set a deadline of 30th June 2020 for all games to be played and the season completed.

    At present, the Premier League and the English Football League (EFL) have suspended all football until 30th April but they have another meeting this week and it is likely to be extended again. The Premier League Season was due to finish on 17th May.

    The financial implications to non-league clubs on missing out on promotion will be huge.

    There may not be the huge sums involved in the Premier League or EFL, but the impact will be felt all the same.

    Teams that may have got relegated will obviously benefit from the decision to void the season.

    If the playing season goes beyond 30th June, other issues come into play such as players contracts expiring, shirt sponsorship, shirt manufacturer contracts which will normally start on 1st July.

    For example, Liverpool Football Club secured a huge deal with Nike which starts on 1st July and if the season was to go beyond 30th June, will they be allowed to wear their new shirt or their current shirt?

    Many issues need to be looked at before the FA Council ratify the decision taken by the FA"

    Definitely, either by resuming the season or if it stops now.

    "Ahead of the Premier League‘s meeting on Friday, UEFA have advised that the season should be completed, with no discussion over a possible void.

    In a statement released by the Dutch FA, they explain that “the schedule [must] be aligned with the rest of footballing Europe” and “all competitions in Europe must be completed before August 3.”

    However, it is noted that “we will only play football if it is safe,” with this likely requiring a behind-closed-doors finish.

    Sky Sports’ Bryan Swanson has explained that “not one association raised cancelling this season,” which provides an insight into the likely outcome of a meeting of the 20 Premier League clubs later in the week"

    Although we all know our lads will be still working incredibly hard to stay in the best possible shape, at least this has given their bodies a longer break than they would have otherwise ever got

    I think - Finish this season - sack of all domestic cups next season to get through the games
