Non-Political Corona/Covid-19 Thread
« on: March 11, 2020, 16:19 »
Nanananana bat flu...or so we are led to believe. So the Covid-19 (AKA The Corona Virus) has arrived, hand sanitiser is flying off the shelves, people are panic buying, schools are closing, events are being cancelled (E3!!), some people are wearing masks and everyone is being told how to wash their hands.

How is it affecting you? Are you worried for your health or staying safe and cozy indoors until this all blows over? Where I live is apparently the 'Corona capital' (or was for a while) as we had the first few cases as well as some 'super spreader' so I probably should be more concerned but it's hard to care too much. I figure I'll either get infected or I won't, thankfully I think my work would be pretty lenient about it and I've got plenty of games to play and things to do if I have to isolate.

People are idiots, the panic buying is completely unnecessary and harms access to goods which would otherwise be plentiful.

We're fortunate that younger people generally don't get severe disease. Hopefully with appropriate measures and social distancing spread can be managed.

Luxury brand companies such as Christian Dior are now planning on making and selling hand sanitizer. So now you can spend $60 per ounce for a bottle the size of what you could literally get at Walmart for $2. If I’m going to be spending a lot of money on such a thing that bottle had better be made from diamonds, have a 24K gold label and cap, and function as an iPhone!
