    Numbers came off the dashboard, though everyone knew about this, I don't believe numbers from China and Iran but these are supposed to be the official numbers I think.

    I get a hoot over sensationalism but that’s just intellectually and logically stupid.

    Hate to mention the obvious, but maybe a worldwide pandemic is exactly what's to refocus the world on something. History is full of global or near global events that didn't wipe everyone out. Resilience and innovation from the ashes are part of how we live today.

    Or they figure out a cure/vaccine in a year, so only double digit millions dead. The world could live with 3-5% less population since that's way less that are mal or undernourished and may die from starvation in the next year anyway.

    Common sense is key, my list is like Hurricane season living in FL or tornado season in the midwest.

    1. Keep family close and refocus them on hygiene protocols.
    2. No unnecessary trips to crowded areas for a while (grand openings, apple stores during peak, hottest restaurants, etc) but keep living.
    3. Keep my devices charged.
    4. Keep cash on hand.
    5. Keep gas in the car.
    6. Keep food & water in the house.
    7. Put all the camping gear & medical kits together including solar and crank radio.
    8. Keep the guns loaded with some on person.
    9. Be prepared to lose some morality or ethical standards if the situation calls for it.

    All true but no one wants to be the 3-5%

    Same here in central VA. It’s good and bad:

    Good: things are still in stock, people aren’t panicking and becoming violent, people are still going to work, everything is carrying on as normal.

    Bad: every person who isn’t at Costco today is one more that will be there later; all at the same time once it becomes obvious that this finna be a bad stretch. Also, by continuing business as normal, there could potentially be “super spreaders” that aren’t sick but have covid giving it to everyone at work and restaurants and home.

    Overall, I give it a BAD that more people aren’t crowding Costco. That’s more desperate clueless neighbors that are going to knock on my door for help, and I’m going to have to be stern with.

    Nothing carrying on on NoVa either as a data point.

    I ordered some stuff from Lowe’s several days ago as a precaution, but it got delayed a week so I went last night to see what they had in store. I didn’t see anyone else shopping for similar stuff and there was plenty of everything, except masks/respirators. Every single one had been sold out.

    We are just planning to not leave the house for an extended time period if this situation gets more intense in my area. Stay-at-home wife and me working from home.

    We are just checking through the list of everything we need to be comfortable for a couple months of not leaving the driveway if it comes to it. We stay prepped for short term weather issues and such, so it's just a matter of adding to the inventory.

    Define recovered. If 14% or more are "re-infected" then they either can't build immunity or never really recovered. Further if they never fully recovered that means they can still spread the virus. This is all to new to understand how exactly the virus works. Point being it doesn't matter. People aren't going to want to go out risking getting sick so in the short term at least plan if a major outbreak happens in your area. Plus if there is a ton of people sick then they'll all head to the hospitals and overwhelm the system limiting the level of care they can receive. Best is to plan for the worse and hope for the best.
