I don't think you are in a position to criticise, look again at some of your posts.áá

Camels are very important to the Nomads crossing the Deserts, if this spreads how can it be contained?

What i mean is this....

"But some farmers have mocked the official warnings, with one posting a video of himself hugging and kissing his camels, asking one to sneeze into his face."


So even they are not taking it seriously.And we all know that you get ill from animals and humans if you dont follow basic hygiene.
Furthermore i am not likely to come across a camel down the Old Kent Road nor in my garden whereas i do come across the occasional rat and wounded crow so i would be interested in health matters relating to things like that but the Saudis can look after themselves.

Actually i would not be that surprised to see a camel walking around Knightsbridge.Have you seen that car sale room next to Arrods ?

It's going to affect the tourist trade for Camel rides on the Beach. I was on Holiday with Friends a few years ago in Tunisia and when we got to the water's edge to go for a swim, it was swimming in Camel Dung.áá

It is not a place well known for its hygiene practices as the best of times.

The Food left a lot to be desired but this was a long time ago and Tunisia is now considered a popular place to Holiday. There were 5 of us "girls" so we created quite a stir , especially Mary who could have been sunbathing for a month and still not got a tan!! We were wandering around the town one day and a man jumped out in front of us and said "five wimmins, I cannot believe my glasses"ááá

You have to go half way round the World to find a 'flasher'.You could have popped down to Margate and saved yourself some money.........áá

He would have had a hard job wjk, he wore one of those "dresses" down to his ankles and and was more interested in trying to get us into his shop to buy stuff..This reminds me of the day we went to the local Market and I saw a beautiful hand made Doily , held it up to the stall holder asking the price and he reeled off a figure and I put it back ready to bargain ,saying to him it was too expensive. The Woman standing next to me said "that's 40 pence Love."", I couldn't stop laughing.áá

An interesting insight into the way the people of Jordan live.

I don't think many of us would survive , but a reminder that Jordan is next door to Saudi Arabia and the camels could become infected with Mers.

So, MERS can be transmitted to Humans, that's worrying.

I don't know if they know the cause Badboy, but for it to spread to humans is worrying , and for the Men in the Middle East Countries who rely on Camels to get about.
