The most useful thing people can do is not panic.
In Australia people are panic buying toilet tissue, and yet there is no shortage!
This is called FOMO syndrome - or Fear Of Missing Out.
Started online and has become a total fiasco.
Next it will be canned food and bottled water then anything left on the shelves!
Yet not one of the panic purhased items will stave off the virus.
The human body can survive 2-3 weeks without food, but just days without water, less if unwell and with a fever.
Personal hygiene is the best method of defense.
If the condition got so bad to prevent water from flowing from the tap then you may be in trouble.
The best solution then, would then be to sit in a crouched position. put your head between your knees, and kiss your a*** goodbye!!
Until then relax and enjoy the day.

Yep! And the mainstream press is trying to panic the public.

I received these two notices from the District office ->

Several of you have requested stock information in a pictorial format for use in your communication products with residents. Please find attached herewith the Sumter County recommended information for COVID-19. In addition, members of my senior staff, public safety and myself participated in a teleconference today with the medical team working with Sumter County Health Department Director, Dr. Zelnick. He reaffirmed that the cleaning procedures of the District were in keeping with recommended standards for this virus and affirmed that COVID-19 questions should be directed to the hot-line set up by the Florida Department of Health ph 866-799-6121. The hot-line is staffed Monday through Friday from 8am to 7pm.

basic - cover mouth when coughing, washing hands and stay at home when sick

and to the NSCUDD board ->

Thanks for hosting the emergency preparedness meeting today to discuss the District’s and Jacobs plan to provide uninterrupted utility services in the event of a major outbreak of the Coronavirus in our area. As pointed out in the update you shared with us from SCDH, the number one thing the public can do to help minimize the spread of the coronavirus is to wash their hands often.

Jacobs has a site specific Emergency Preparedness Plan (EPP) in place for these types of events. These plans are reviewed and updated on an annual basis, and as new situations arise. These plans are also reviewed by all staff annually and mock drills are performed to ensure staff are able to carry out their duties.

Jacobs has sufficient operating staff to cover both the potable water and wastewater operations in the event employees become sick.

Looks like it's time to add a little more rational perspective to this.

In an average year, according to the CDC, there are 36,000 US deaths and 500,000 worldwide deaths from influenza.
Coronavirus---US deaths = 9, all in the same adult facility in Washington State
Worldwide---?2-3000 depending on accuracy of Chinese statistics.

So, CNN, MSNBC, ABC etc., no, chicken little the sky is not falling

Also, I'm amazed the same people who are clamoring for an instant vaccine are probably the same ones that pass on their yearly flu shot

Aww, who cares if it's safe?

I say let the one whining the most, get the first shot...next week.

If there are some weird personality side effects...how could anyone tell anyway?
