Are you concerned?

The wife and I are just getting over some cold and flu symptoms.  She had it for over two weeks and mine lasted only about 5 days.  I'm almost my normal ornery self again.  She is out and about much more than I am. The lady at the Culver's drive-thru didn't have her voice.  Another symptom that we went though.  That's a little scary!

I can't complain but sometimes I still do

I'm more concerned about the effects on the stock market than I am about the virus itself.

Don't panic, huh? Tell that to the f**king morons who bought up all the Isopropyl Alcohol, Hand Santizer, and etc.  Prepare for the worst! What the sh*t is this? A snowstorm?! It's like that South Park episode on Global Warming where the whole town is panic buying everything off the goddamned shelves. 

You so-called experts f**k this all up didn't you?  I work in retail, right smack dab in the middle of this sh*tstorm. You could've done a hell of a lot better.  Now the people who really are sick, and really need those aformentioned items in the previous paragraph can't get them.  I think the best phrase to use is: "STOP HOARDING! STOP PANIC-BUYING! GET THE FACTS ON THE WHO website!  Personally, someone should fire this asshole!

We have a running joke about it around here.  The wife, a retired RN, was talking about a Pandemic 2 months ago!

When I FIRST heard about this Wuhan town beings "closed off" a few months ago, I said to my aunt - this WTF virus will be here "by summer." I was way off on that, honestly I didn't think by late Feb.! Guess I was being over-optimistic perhaps

I'm not in a total panic, not yet. I DO worry if my aunt gets this, it can be extremely serious for her. Upper 70s, diabetes, has a history of respiratory issues, pneumonia (There are now 7 cases of this near me though Montgomery County PA outside Philly...smh!) I do suspect there are a heck of lot more cases out there - lack of testing just can't confirm it yet.  

This stock market plunge last week and especially today, economy in general is a hell of a lot more concerning than this damn pandemic right now.

As for this sh*tbag clueless so called "President" the Govt. run agencies.
NO info, wrong/conflicting info. This is such a massive clusterf**k!! Angry

I didn't see this reply. Yeah that was my concern. Feb 29 you posted this, the sh*t really started to hit March 2, exactly one week ago. Seeing it plunge bouncing from 1800-2000 points at 9:35am, 7% loss triggering a "stoppage" ...Jesus!! 

(1:45pm EDT, it's back down 1800+ points again, over 7% loss)

THIS is the part that is really scaring the hell out of me right now, more than this virus.

My next door neighbor is an HR Director for Universal Studios, China Operation. Hence, he travels back and forth between here and China on a semi regular basis. 

I noticed that his car had been gone from shortly after the beginning of the year and most of January which was unusual because normally he'd just leave his car home and get a ride to the airport. As January turned into February and he was still gone, I began to suspect that he might've gotten caught in the quarantine or, worse yet, come down with the virus. 

A couple of weeks ago, some of his friends stayed there for a few days, then a gal who I'd seen before came by in his car. I saw the car first and figured he was home, then I saw her hauling a couple of trash bags out, so I chatted with her for a few minutes.

According to her, he says it's more of a mild annoyance than anything really serious and the reason he's been over there so long is work related. They're building and opening a new Universal China theme park apparently.

Still not 100% convinced.

If he was sick, he or she might not want to tell anyone.

Privacy and all that.

Due to the virus, all the late night talk shows had no audiences last night.

Kimmel, Fallon and Colbert all played to empty seats, save for their staff employees.

Not surprisingly, they were only slightly more boring than they usually are.

I don't watch those games either but think of the economic impact across all kinds of entertainment, travel.

The stock market is already on shaky ground, the trickle down effect will impact all of us.

Many states have shut down all schools. WA just did that, with Jay Inslee ordering schools closed until 4/24/20.
Also, universities will be ordered into online learning ONLY through 4/24. Dorms and dining halls remain open at universities including WSU, CWU and UW.
He also mentioned the National Guard. 
This document is scaring the heck out of me however...WA's plan to quarantine:
That could mean cordon sanitaire. Which is mandatory quarantine, and National Guard putting up blockades. Would essentially shut down EVERYTHING in WA state apart from hospitals and of course, law enforcement...
Currently suffering from COVID19 fatigue...
