After saying the coronavirus is nothing worse than the flu, your president expresses surprise that the flu kills at minimum 27 Thousand each year, admonishes the pharmaceutical industry to do a better job with their vaccines, and suggests using some of that flu vaccine to combat coronavirus.

hey as long as we limit testing we'll continue to have low numbers...

seriously now i hear that it has been here for six/seven weeks

the powers that be seem to have trouble getting mass testing down

if we can just wait a little longer everyone will be exposed and it won't matter

my partner and i are pretty high risk/exposure

giant system we work in and we be touching lots of knobs, buttons, switches, handles, etc.

Surgeon General Urges the Public to Stop Buying Face Masks
The plea comes as panicked consumers rush to buy masks online, including so-called N95s, a surge that has led to price gouging and counterfeit products.

What the public (health) systems can only do is isolate, quarantine, and research the source of spread, as was already common in the middle ages. Insured or not.  

 
Excellent advice. However, with zero insurance, no one will be quarantining me in a hospital. I refuse to spend the rest of my life homeless and bankrupt paying off a hospital bill equal to the amount of purchasing a home.  No one can convince me hospitals won't be charging outrageous bills to patients after this is over. I'll self quarantine, thanx.

Uninsured millions would rather die than live in abject poverty. Even my neighbor, who's a Trumpy, said he'll start shooting if anyone tries to put him in a hospital. 
If my neighbor doesn't care about my health, then what reason do I have to care about his?

Unexplained Coronavirus Cases in Three States Raise Specter of Spread
Sixty-five cases of the virus have been reported in the United States, but until this week, all of the cases could be explained by overseas travel or contact with someone who had been ill. The three new cases on Friday, and a case earlier in the week, in California, were the first in the United States where the cause was mysterious and unknown — a sign, experts warned, that the virus, which has killed more than 2,800 people worldwide and sickened tens of thousands of others, might now be spreading in this country.

“If we were worried yesterday, we are even more worried today,” said Dr. William Schaffner, an infectious disease specialist at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. “Now we have to ask: How widely, really widely, is this virus out there?”

As word emerged of the unexplained cases, local officials scrambled to trace everyone who had come in contact with those who were ill. California health officials said they were increasing testing. And in Washington State, officials suggested that people needed to prepare for the possibility of schools closing and businesses keeping workers home.

“We’re going to be increasingly recommending that people try and avoid crowds and close contact with other people,” Dr. Jeff Duchin, health officer for Public Health Seattle & King County, said. “We may get to a point where we want to recommend canceling large public gatherings — social events, sporting events, entertainment — until we get over a hump of what might be a large outbreak.”

Even the parent company of Corona, the beer brand, has seen its shares drop more than the broader market, which some have attributed to its having the same name as the virus.

Such fears do not bode well for a modern economy and stock market that depend on optimism and a willingness to spend. As recently as nine days ago, that optimism helped drive up the stock market to a new high.
 

I know you are rooting for disaster, death and for everyone to panic and be angry because it will help your agenda, but really the best thing to do is to wash your hands, stay to yourself as much as possible, stock up on food and supplies and remain calm.   I don't have to change anything because I already live that way, but it would probably be good for more people to scale back their lives and start being more independent.   That is what we should take from crises like these.



 

Edit: And remember should there be social disorder or even collapse, the urban centers will go first.  Perhaps this will give those that think preppers wear tin foil hats pause for reflection.

{#Whistle}

 

Another agenda heard from?

 
Prepping is not an agenda, it is prepping nothing else.  And if you think washing your hands, storing food and supplies and staying to yourself to prevent spreading of a virus is an agenda then I can't help you.

All I know is we have tix to New Orleans in 3 weeks for a conference for Justine. My ticket is nonrefundable so I'm going, even if they reschedule the event. Might have to book a less-posh hotel tho. Anyone know the number of the YMCA?
 
I think there is a very real chance conferences like that will start canceling in droves.  We'll see how the weekend goes, but life in the US is about to get very isolated and home-bound until there are at a minimum more answers.

As to your flights, airlines have begun allowing rescheduling for Italy and other heavily infected areas...hopefully, if you have to cancel you can use the tickets later.
