Tragic here in Italy . I am sick to stay closed in my own house.  Italian nation is stupid because they don't stay closed in their house . The numbers are raising very quickly.  Only supermarkets are opened and only one person from family can go to resupply food . We have to stay 1m from other people . Citys is under police patrol and no one can go out to work without a document from ur medic that allows u to work .

Hope everything will end soon .

Chances are we will take care of that ourselves..., but maybe mother nature will be faster🤣

Well I'm a college professor and my students were.. less than impressed, when the schools, colleges and universities were closed down and they woke up to a message from me:

"I've digitalized all our classes for the next two weeks, first paper is due to be delivered Friday at 12 AM".. I've gotten 14 mails so far from students complaining that it's their "day off"....

That being said, give them a week and those classes are going to look mighty tasty when they start to get bored :)

A good timing for a nice patch to make these hard times more bearable.

And, what about a steam sale? Lots of bored dudes would be looking at the steam store soon.

I'm from Madrid Spain). The inaction of our politicians leaders is making the situation more complicated. I am the owner of a restaurant in the bullring area (tourist area) we are suffering enormous losses of money and no help from the government. possibly they will quarantine the entire city. I have people I know in hospitals working and they say they hardly have any materials. everything is very complicated here. I personally am still looking forward to the developers announcement saying
 `` We are developing a new Spanish ship`` That day the coronavirus will give me the same =).

I just came back from a Caribbean cruise on Mar 3.  Travelled through Ft Lauderdale and Toronto to Halifax.  At that time, there was barely an acknowledgement that there was an issue.  I work on a navy base and there is no talk of any shut downs here.  The universities here are talking about not letting students back after March break as we have a large international population there.  We have zero cases of Covid 19 here and zero toilet paper in our stores. Can't wait to be told to "work from home"!

Situation in the Netherlands is getting more serious now, government told everyone that has minor symptoms of a cold to stay at home (work from home) if possible. Less traffic jams, supermarkets with empty shelves etc etc

I live 5 miles from where Corona first appeared in the UK , all seems normal enough. Panic buying has started.

 

interestingly the town where I live was wiped out in the plague years 1600-1700 ish and I lost a fair few family members from the Spanish Flu (1919)

 

Toilet paper always stocked up. Seems strangely normal right now though

Also German politics is a joke as usual in handling this, same for EU.

Being tested and isolated.  All the more reason for him to be out of the house and working.  He's young and fit.  He should be licking doorknobs in Iran to get it over with.

Very true.  I'm not minimizing the danger to the old or infirm.  Most people will shake this off like a typical flu, but the elderly are at much greater risk.

New Zealand. No changes to life here,  plenty of toilet paper in the supermarkets no crazies emptying shelves,  kids are going to school, people still going to restaurants , malls are still busy, people taking public transport etc wouldn't notice any difference except a couple large gatherings have been cancelled. Company has contingency plans in place for majority of people to work form home but I've already been doing that for past several years so no change.
