Default "Covid-19" Can it be that simple?

If I stay the recommended "6-feet' distance from other people AND I never touch my face - Am I 'immune' from infection?
It can't be that simple - Can it?
If not, how else can I get infected?:

160 confirmed cases in Florida and probably 1,000s of unconfirmed cases. People walking around with either no symptoms yet, or symptoms they think are allergies or a cold. Seriously, 1,000s.

Default Someone stated “end of world”

I would say possibly end of the elderly generation if China continues to limit export of our medications. Several factories there are closed and now there are issues with us continuing to get other antibiotics with are 80 percent of ingredients made from China. They are hitting us when we are vulnerable.

It seems that there are two extreme reactions that some people are having. One extreme is that people are terrified, buying up toilet paper and hoarding goods. The other is that people think that this is all nothing or some big government conspiracy and are going to try to keep living their lives as if nothing is happening.

Both of these positions are going to help this virus to spread. And it will spread.

What we can do is to follow the WHO, CDC and administration task force recommendations and wash our hands frequently and stay six feet away from other people. And that is all we can do.

The fact that some people aren't going to do this is what is going to make it spread faster.

Now, if we over-react and drive the nation or the world into a global depression, how many MILLIONS of lives will that take?

Please don't apply for the jobs of national health advisor, surgeon general, or director of the CDC
Let me post this once instead of replying to all of the posts from my friends who keep comparing CoVid-19 to the flu. The reasons that this is different from recent outbreaks of influenza is that #1, we have a very effective vaccine for influenza that we don't have for CoVid-19. The current flu season we have had 30 million reported cases of the flu. Imagine if we didn't have a vaccine. That is what we are looking at. Without a vaccination we would be having the same panic over the flu.
#2, we have anti-viral medications that are very effective against most common strains of influenza. In spite of that we have had at least 12,000 and possibly as many as 30,000 deaths from the flu. We have no medications what whatsoever to fight against CoVid-19. If we don't start taking preventative measures who knows how many will die?
#3, When a person contracts the flu, symptoms usually show up immediately. The person that gets it takes actions to get medications and stay away from friends and family. When CoVid-19 is contracted, symptoms don't show up for up to two weeks. Although we currently know how many cases have been reported of CoVid-19, we really have no idea how many people in this country have it right now. It could be in the millions. Every person that you see is a possible carrier.
This is very different from the flu. It is different from the H1N1 (Swine Flu ) that went around a few years ago. This is the worst threat to us as a people since the 1918 pandemic where 1/3 of the world's population became infected and 50 million died.
Lastly, we don't know what the long term affects of this disease. While it's true that most people that contract it have flu like symptoms for a week or so, we don't know if those people are permanently affected. Will they become immune to it in the future or will it recur in them every year?
This is not like the influenza that we see every year. It is very, very different.

But with no vaccination or medications available, I don't think that it's inconceivable that this could turn into a similar situation.

The reason that the flu doesn't threaten us every year like it did in 1918 is because vaccinations and medications have been developed to prevent it.

Of course they didn't have the communication systems in 1918 that we have now, but I wonder if some people were saying, "We're nowhere near a pandemic at this point" back then?

Just think of the reporting and accumulation lag time in 1918.
We have a blessing/curse of almost instantaneous availability.

Speaking of martial law, what does it take in this country to declare martial law? Can the president do this on his own or does it need to be an act of congress?

4. Your OPINION was that a nationwide quarantine (as Dr. Fauci is urging) would result in a "global depression and millions of deaths".

5. YOU accuse ME of making "misinformative posts that promote panic".

6.
To set the record straight, I suggested that an over-response RISKS a worldwide recession---that is NOT an OPINION, just a statement of a possibility.

I did not accuse YOU of misinformation, just a large number of posts on this subject

And BTW, I know Tony Fauci, do you?????

If you are concerned about businesses and amenities staying open you can just stay away. Please don't try to force your views and concerns on others!

So how do you impose this quarantine? Who do you test and not test? How many times do you test? When people begin to starve do you lift the quarantine? Why is it okay to hoard from other citizens but if you raise prices in a crisis you are fined and could be arrested? Why are politicians speaking to the country and not Drs? With all the modern communication, data collection ability and ability to share data why can we not get a 95% correct reporting?

Have about a million more questions, what ifs, how do we get there and so on. Most of the talk here does nothing and is highly suspect on truth and fact. Be safe, follow basic intelligent medical practices and make decisions on your needs. Understand that everyone is different and can make choices that are best for themselves that does not hurt others. Personally not afraid of the virus but extremely more worried about being a carrier that causes harm to others.

So do you actually have any support for the alternative facts above? There sure isn't any in the article that GoodLife offered a link to. Instead, it says that the workers came from Wenzhou, a port city over 500 miles from Wuhan. It further states that "More than ten per cent of Prato’s two hundred thousand legal residents are Chinese." - a far cry from 100,000. The non-stop flights? Actually "between Wenzhou and Rome". Also missing from the NewYorker article is any mention whatsoever of Wuhan.

I'm afraid that this kind of looks like another case of reckless misinformation or rumor-mongering regarding the COVID-19 virus.

At some point we will have to set aside the debate(s) of what was or wasn't.

And join the here and now and offer more dialogue of how we can all help make the suppression of the virus work. The actions the government has taken and will take are nothing more than common sense.....however as we all know there is too high of a percent of those who will not implement the common sense, hence enforcement becomes a necessity. Then and only then will the beaches and bars and streets be cleared and maintained.

Check the cameras on the squares....they are 99% empty.
We, for the most part, have a vested interest and comply.

I wish there were cameras on the beaches, the view is probably much different.

As on the news yesterday a mother with her school break children said they had no intention of cancelling. They were not worried because they were healthy and younger.

....that is why martial enforcement becomes necessary
....for the selfish/stupid/inconsiderate!!
