Pandemic a Game but being Played for Real!

Take a look at this light-hearted BBC News report:

And contrast it with more recent ones:

At the "work" after hours game club [no tanks allowed] we recently played Pandemic: The Cure and thankfully beat all four pathogens courtesy of the Generalist's life saving end of game dice throw to defeat the "Red Plague" (see below, all players had somewhat bated breath as she had 'muffed' the last roll [we are not a blame culture but panic almost set in] and we were starting to fear the worst - now after the hard won victory we should perhaps make Miss D's, Dr F's, Miss S' and Mr H's collective services available to the WHO or NHS who need a few good dice rolls themselves just now):

Time to take some vitamin C and vitamin D tablets perhaps!

Interesting stuff. In the meantime we have this chump in charge of America's response to the coronavirus.
