The Virus Outbreak Thread

Living in South Korea, I feel as if 8 or 9 out of every 10 people I see walking down the street is wearing a mask.
What a time to be alive.

The city I live in has 10 cases as of today, so it's not TOO bad. At least compared to Daegu with their 1000+ cases. But besides that I try my best not to.

Ikr? We went from 50 cases to 1700 in a little more than a week. Our extremely dense population could have something to do with it however. Which part of the world do you live in if you don't mind me asking?

Damn. Hopefully this isn't the start of something drastic that side of the Pacific. I wish you and your countrymen the best.

Okay errbody take your vitamins and start vaccinating against literally everything. Get your ebola shots, flu shots, malaria shots etc.
Apparently Covid-19 is starting to make its move. It is out of contaiment, and is closing in to having Pandemic status. We about to see some proper weird stuff the coming weeks. We haven't hit endgame yet, which is frankly, worrying.

Probably won't for another couple of months. If it gets out of control here, the US can likely keep shelves stocked until around April. Who knows after that. How are things where you're at so far? You had a few more confirmed cases.

Just had an italian family eat in my restaurant and I was their server. In my mind I was like: "have you been in northern italy lately?"

I highly doubt we will reach "prepper level" needs in the US. While our supply chain will take a hit, and it may push us into correction (or even recession) territory, we have enough internal resources to weather the storm. I doubt the fatality rate, even globally, will be enough to fully cripple any industrilized country.

The middle east and Africa however, that could be another story. A 2% fatality rate in the industrial nations could be much more dangerous there.

India too, as the high levels of air pollution already make the more susceptible to respiratory distress.

Ok, addendum.

We are now in a correction, the Dow is set to close 1000 points down again today, and the futures are looking bleak. We've hit the 10% overall threshold for a correction.

This could be the start of a bear market, or possible recession. Or, it may bounce back/flat-line for awhile.

Tenerife had tens of tourist stuck in their hotel. Apparently a tourist coming back from Italy got em.

Italy outbreak really made it easier for Spain to catch it.

This is like the Chinese New Year case earlier all over again. Ppl coming back from infected places.
