I abhor alarmist, so I fretted posting this.

Coronavirus is on the verge of being a global pandemic if it isn’t already. I urge you all to read this series of tweets, and do your own independent research. Just imagine if the global economy slows by 1% or 10% or even higher for the next 2 quarters. Multiple companies, Apple among them, have already warned of lower first quarter because of this virus. I’ve said my peace.

Coronavirus: CDC warns of US outbreak of Covid-19, preps for pandemic

Dr. Nancy Messonnier, director of the CDC's National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, told reporters Friday that U.S. health officials are preparing for the coronavirus to become a pandemic.

She said the “day may come” here where we have to shut down schools and businesses like China has done.

My comment about the Muslim Hajj really multiplying coronavirus appears to be four months too optimistic. Iran having five deaths this week is scary.

Given the latest unfortunate developments of #COVID19, now is the time to consider canceling upcoming travel plans & spend more time at home, limiting social contacts & preparing for disruptions of public life #SARSCoV2 - and most important: hand hygiene!!

Hand sanitizer won't work; it will not kill viruses. If it has a high alcohol level, that is acceptable. Wash your hands for 20 seconds, preferably with warm water.

Yes, dear. Some folks say they don't care at one point, it doesn't matter, but at the end point, they have a different attitude...

Dying in your 30s or 40s with small children at home is really hard on your kids and loved ones.
Of course, if you don't mind them spending 20 years sitting in a psychiatrist's office in later because they can't relate to their children, and they don't trust close loved ones, you go right ahead on for an early death. :rolleyes:

Thank you amethyst. The cdc recommends getting an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. It kills viruses if you follow the instructions.

The soap and warm water is likely the most effective since it pretty much gets everything except drinking from a public fountain following a sick person using the fountain.
