Follow the Mega Thread Part 4 good people of ATS. It's out of control. Not kidding. Time to prepare yourself and those you love. You will be impacted by this in someway. But, yes, stay calm. Bye. Long day. Carry on night shift.

I'll just say this, been on ATS for a lot of big "hot" topics where many theories aren't just floated but hammered and nailed and spiked to ground such as remembering the oil spill, Fukushima, Obama, Katrina and other storms, the continuation of wars and atrocities and during every event we see it theorized to its worst possible conclusion. YET they never actually happen.

Reminds me of my ex-wife some problem would pop up and she would conclude every possible scenario dozens sometimes. LOL, most times in the middle of the night after we had messed around. It wouldn't matter how much you reassured her unless every scenario was address you were wrong. LOL didn't matter that her scenarios were always the worst cases never had positive conclusions. This obsession is in some of the peoples' normal human nature and more difficult to qwell than any flu or virus I've ever seen.

You're correct. These CoronaVirus threads ARE out of control. WAYYY out of control.

I'm old, have poor health, and I will walk into a hospital every day because that's my job.

Is it a risk?

Sure.

It's a novel virus.

But it's also a flu.

It's not ebola, not the zombie plague, not a flesh eating disease.

The smart thing to do is to be calm, rational, not give into hype and treat your individual situation specifically.

Best of luck!

I think the sooner people get the virus and get over it the better. I hope people build up and immunity to it.

Is this what happens? Once you've recovered, the CV-19 can't infect you again the next week?




Apparently yes, it's happened numerous times, if the reports are to be believed.


Then we have to close the borders and test/treat every human in the USA. It's the only way to be sure!



It's too late for that, the virus is in U.S.
read this

Italy has 16 million people quarantined, if this virus takes off in the U.S then you will know soon enough.


It's not too late to stop all inflow of humans into the US and and test/treat every one here. Then you don't reopen the borders to inbound traffic until after a vaccine is available. This thing is too deadly to take any chances!




In the meantime the economy will just run itself, I don't think so there will be full on panic if the supply chain breaks down, industry has to keep going or hell will break loose.

There's no chance of testing everybody in the U.S and as we know people can get it more than once so multiple tests per person are required, coupled with quarantine. We're talking a billion tests....

I took my youngest daughter out to eat after her volleyball tournament today. We went to a buffet and they had the news on 3 of their televisions. They were all talking about the coronavirus. In a stroke of pure luck, I took a drink of iced tea and it went down the wrong pipe. This lead to a 10 second fit of coughing every few seconds to catch my breath. When I glanced up, the whole place was staring at me. Yeah..I imagine some people won't be back to a buffet anytime soon.




You should have filmed that, instant youtube star


We use Tyvek suits at work, we are kind of joking about going to Walmart, or the mall in them, all suited and masked up.


Maybe not..lol

The corono-19 virus expresses flu-like symptoms, so it's considered a flu.

Order out of chaos!

Pay attention to what tyrannical laws that will be drawn up or the subversive hidden laws that will be introduced to protect us all from something like this ever happening again.

Meanwhile the Chinese government walks away scott free....

Also it will be interesting to see the open borders crowd continue their manic mantra.

Okay.

I'm just voicing my opinion on the topic.

You're free to voice yours.

I'm not going to go into "debate".

If you want to stock up, think this is end-of-the-world then that's all on you. Not saying that's how you think, but just saying.

I just have a different opinion.

Best post of the entire thread IMHO, maybe even best post on ATS for the entire month! I keep sayin' we need a top ten posts or threads of the week on ATS but no one listens... This would easily qualify.

Excellent OP.

I have noticed an uptick in available coronovirus information and several people knowledgeable on the subject, pretty surprising.

My daughters school district sent home a letter pretty much stating that they are aware of Covid-19 and have taken measures to ensure clean environments and monitor the situation, schools will remain open and new social practices will be explore such as finger waving, waving and surprisingly, fist bumps.

I see multiple businesses increase the available hand sanitizer solutions for everyone.

For the most part, small precautions like 4 packs of water per purchase at the local grocery is very reasonable and it's always stocked, a bit lower, but stocked.

We are preppers, we started prepping in about 2008. Back then we sucked at it, but now we do a decent job at rotating supplies in our pantry. We made sure our stocks were more up to par again because there were some good sales on stuff. We try to save money and trips to the store.

We don't have to stand in line at the store if tshtf. Let others who need it do it and pay full price instead of sale price for what they buy.

When we got prepped, now we have less stress, there is something great about knowing that you have some control of your life. So many people are living day to day, if they were out of work for a couple of months they would be homeless. We no longer have that worry, house is paid off and we live within our means, we do not desire to go in debt anymore. That is the good thing about being older and debt free, if you watch your money you can coast out.

I would rather die of the corona virus than lose my memories from Alzheimer disease, the wife feels the same way. But we have taken the steps to stop Alzheimer disease, we changed our diet to lessen the risk and it should work because I studied a lot on what is making Alzheimer disease more of a risk. My wife's aunts both had it and we do not want her to have it so we made a few changes. It is surprising how your mind gets clearer when you eliminate certain food chemistries. Guess all those foods that taste too good to be true are too good to be true.

I do not worry about dying, I would not have to plow anymore or shovel the path. The snowbanks are between six and eight feet high here in the driveway. I have to take out the tractor and blow back the banks again to make room to plow tomorrow. It sucks but I still know who my kids are and I do not want to forget anyone, I know at least ten people who have had Alzhiemer disease ruin their life, something that was rare before is now getting common. That would be way worse than dying from a virus. That is what I fear, not this virus or the flu. I worry about quarantines, not the virus. The media is blowing all of this out of proportion, trying to steer us away from finding out something important that is going on. They are focusing us on this when it is not half as bad as they say it is.

Not many people around here are afraid of this virus, most people do not trust the panic though, so lots of people are stocking up for maybe three to four weeks of being inconvenienced because five people got sick.
