    In Sam's Club last night, lady at the counter said they have had a run on staples - noted 23 items that they are out of and don't expect to be restocked for several weeks:

    Water
    Flour
    Sugar
    etc...

    Wife overheard 2 women talking about them being advised at church that they should get supplies to last a while...

    ^^^If that was the advice coming across the pulpit at church I can assure you that it was not official church policy, and was almost certainly gospel according to the ward busybody who's a catastrophist and lives for moments like this where they can hog the limelight and gloat about how many years of food storage they have saved up.

    Average Covid particle = 0.12 microns, N95 masks filter down to 0.30 microns. YOUR MASK IS USELESS.

    ^^ thatís of known cases. How many people have it with little to no symptoms, and were never counted in the data?
    Donít make jokes about China. It will go viral.

    If I'm involved in a car crash and die, I didn't die from CCP Virus.

    Is it just me, or does anyone else see the crazy irony of what’s dominating the news this week, between all this hoarding of TP, water, essentials in conjunction with Super Tuesday elections where we are getting closer and closer to electing a communist as POTUS?

    It’s like people are doing a dry run and start practicing scoring the internet and racing from store to store for everyday common items in prep for when the economy completely tanks, and we’re all standing in bread lines. But hey - it will be worth it because we have’ free’ healthcare, college, daycare, housing, and we’ve saved the planet from carbon fuels.

    Yeah, it's a whacky world. Lots of people out there believe in ghosts, too.

    Like I've always said...If you go thru life expecting other people to do what YOU would do, you're going to be sorely disappointed.

    To me, so many suffer from "Mental Hypochondria".

    Here's a timeline, with links to sources, showing how Trump's Administration responded, and some results:

    Covid-19 identified to WHO: January 11 and 12, 2020, https://www.who.int/csr/don/12-janua...irus-china/en/

    The US started screening arriving passengers from China: January 17, 2020, JFK, SFO LAX https://www.businessinsider.com/new-...ing-cdc-2020-1 ; O'Hare and Hartsfield-Jackson January 22, 2020, https://www.washingtonpost.com/natio...lanta-chicago/

    Pharmaceuticals company working with US government to develop vaccine: January 22, 2020, Moderna, https://www.cnbc.com/2020/01/22/mode...ronavirus.html

    State Department raised the travel advisory for China to Level 4, do not travel: January 31, 2020, https://www.usatoday.com/story/trave...se/4620989002/

    People entering the US from China forbidden: February 2, 2020, https://www.cnn.com/2020/02/02/us/co...ons/index.html This effectively ended flights from and to China, for obvious reasons. The current date for flights to resume is March 30, 2020.

    I hope the hoarders are happy they got their share. Hope they have enough to last 23,000 years.

    So, in times of crisis the one thing people want the most is toilet paper....?


    Why not canned food, batteries, first aid supplies, candles, water purifier, ammo, etc.....?


    I guess what we've learned from this is that folks are woefully unprepared for a major disaster -- and further, folks don't know how to get prepared even when given fair warning.
