Look at Vegas as your city zero for panic. Living here and being conspiratorily minded over the years I've thought about this type of scenario.

It's a classic test city, only five roads out of here so how hard would it be to close up shop and see what happens?

We don't have food naturally growing here, anywhere near here. Go ahead and get out, you've got nothing out there.

Walmart was practically empty of anything resembling food. I've got enough for a month or so but what about the supply lines and the distance Vegas is from anything? Our unemployment rise is, per capita, most likely the worst in the country. Huge frakking buildings that rake in millions of dollars are now gone.

All we are is dust in the wind, man.

Why the statewide stay-at-home order?

In California I only see 19 deaths out of 39.94 million people.

You have more of a chance of dying in a car wreck than dying from this virus....

TheSpanishArcher, please keep us updated as things develop. I'm in Northern NV and I'm trying to do the same. Things are going to get ugly real quick.

Hang in there and please comment when you can. I will keep an eye out for your posts

All was good when I went out this afternoon for a doc appt. and shopping. Lots of stores and what not open, they are even selling cars. Is that "essential", I don't know. Wally World was pretty bare but I did pick up what I could although they were out of cat food and bird seed - Mom, in her dementia loves to see the birds who seemingly have no care about the virus and aren't practicing social distancing. We went to Petsmart for cat and bird seed and damn, their selection sucks and their prices are lousy.

Convenience stores, liquor stores, restaurants/fast food are still open except for those that serve in house but like Applebees I suspect is still open.

Bars are gone, all of them. I've only seen the bars in this town closed once in my fifty plus years here and that was the power spike that shut down the western grid in the late '90's. That was only for a half a day, this ain't that for sure.

The amount of money being lost in this city is absolutely staggering. Missing out on March Madness, the upcoming NBA playoffs, the NFL Draft is gone......and just factor in how much money the casinos are losing with those big ass buildings sitting there doing nothing.

As I said to you in another thread, I don't expect this to go well. I was out and could have been a dick and hoarded some food stuffs but I would rather be a kind person and leave some of the very few items that were on the shelf for someone who needs them.

It does seem rather cavalier about it though. Most workers are not wearing masks and many are not even wearing gloves. Outside of the Strip life seems to be going on here as if it's just a nuisance.

Vegas is ground zero for panic. It's closed off from the real world like no other city in America and if SHTF it's going to start here.

Mark my words.

I can tell you why

The numbers are low because of a complete lack of testing. The hospitals are close to full (at least in Santa Clara County) and are running out of PPE and this is going to be the only way to slow the number of cases.

By LOS ANGELES TIMES STAFF

UPDATED MARCH 19, 5:56 P.M. PACIFIC

There is no number I could find on the amount tested... there is only numbers for

www.latimes.com...

1,001 confirmed ... 19 deaths. There were 13 who had health issues that could have made them more vulnerable to the disease.

Maybe the California statewide stay-at-home order is not because of the virus.... must be something else they are not telling us....as the current coronavirus data doesn't justify a stay-at-home order.

I loath catchphrases but 'Flattening the curve" is what we need to do and where we are

It's always over capacity this time of year.... still doesn't make sense.

I doubt it's the beginning of the coronavirus in the USA...it just the beginning of testing.

How soon before the U.S. Economy tanks, and it is over?
Is that their goal??


No it isn’t the goal.

The goal is to save people’s lives.

Has the government overreacted, yeah they may have, but maybe they didn’t. To tell you the truth nobody really knows, because we don’t know what would have happened if they did nothing and we never will.

But we are where we are now, and things are going to be shut down now for at least a few weeks.

But one thing I for one am positive about, when this is over the economy will come roaring back quickly.

its Not a full lockdown. Ports trucks shipping utilities cops fire dept grocery Banks gas etc. you can still go out get supplies. Just can’t go hang at a bar then go eat at a restaurant. Schools closed statewide. It will be ok. Now if the power and water were to go then things would get Harry.

SIX THOUSAND DEATHS FROM THE FLU!!!

There is something VERY SINISTER at the root of these mass abuses of power. Maybe they're testing the SHEEP to see how much pain they will take, due to the USA CoronaVirus Hoax.

FYI: Fewer than 50 killed in the USA by Covid-19, when the Hoax commenced. Initiators = Mainstream Media, in collusion with the Trump-hating NBA, and Top Democrats. I hope not one dime of bailout/relief $$$ goes to Sport Owners or MSM!

No it does not, it shows exactly the opposite.

Corona is more deadly and much more contagious. Does that mean it was deadly enough to shut everything down, well it all depends on how much you value life lost vs the economic damage shutting down does.

But here is the problem we don’t even know the answer to either of those questions, so it is just an educated guess.

The other thing to consider is politicians are making these decisions, and they are going to be much more harshly criticized for not doing enough to fight a pandemic then they will be for grinding the economy to a halt (as long as it’s temporary) so it’s not really a surprise we got to this point with the way the media has hyped this up.

Thanks for the reply carewemust, for minute I was thinking conspiracy theorist have died out...as I see less and less theories nowadays.

yes I agree something very sinister is going on.... someone wants to turn California into total chaos... It seems something is pushing for disorder and mass confusion.
