    Hmmmm....... it's not exactly like we have nothing to fear, but do have to fear, fear itself.

    And "overreaction"

    Trump not withstanding, I would not put it past the Proggies to see this as an emergency that needs to be exploited. The Rahm doctrine...

    I just don't want to be hungry or immobile.

    "Stock" ?

    Glad you mentioned that, should buy stock in 3M..... manufacturing is probably at full-tilt to keep up with demand for masks.

    My husband is able to work from home, so his work would not be affected unless internet and phone goes down.

    We are in a pretty good position to hunker down for a while if necessary.
    Yep, that's what is nice about living in the sticks, and if you need a little extra meat you just walk out on the porch with your gun.
    Humble yourself, for there is an enormous change coming.

    Just remember, how this affects someone depends on a lot of factors. Young, healthy people in the age group 10-39 have a 99.8% recovery rate. The most worrisome demographics are above age 70 and it shoots up much higher after age 80, depending on other co-exiting illnesses. This data is from China, where smoking, air quality, medical care etc. are much different than here.
