The first link was posted yesterday and it's good so good for posting it again

The second one is from January and I didn't read it because of that; EDIT: I read it, it's good. Has some points I hadn't thought of but is basically first aid protocols re: BSI. But calling it the Wuhan Virus was part of the problem early on: a certain segment of the population, who live in White Houses especially, allowed themselves to think it was a Wuhan problem.

No, a certain amount of selfishness is warranted. What pisses me off is when asking people who work for me (in this case the gov't) to do the thing I hired them to do is equated with asking the gov't to take care of me. I didn't ask the gov't *for* anything, certainly nothing for myself. You, alone, can't do much to mitigate the effects of this thing in the community around you. Sure, you can protect yourself, as everyone should to the best of their ability. But most people have to go to work today. HAVE TO. Until someone in authority steps up and says they don't. You can wish all day long for everyone to do the exactly right thing without that authority voice, but that way lies madness. Lay madness. As it were.

Correct and/or/but this line of thinking pisses me off. Nobody's asking the government to take care of us. But the government does need to do a few things that are 100% in their purview: disseminate quality information and provide leadership. Prepare for closures and disruption. Order closures where applicable. Our local and state leaders look to the federal leaders for guidance; if that guidance is stupid, conflicted, or nonexistent, the people on the ground are less likely to take practical steps. And so hey we're Italy.

They don't have to be mutually exclusive.   Governments can and should help limit the spread and support your "realm management" protocals.  Consumed...no, just looking for a bit of help from a stable genius and his wonderful, brilliant, rotating staff.

China is getting back to normal after about 2 months.  Other Asian countries have things under control.  Patriots in the greatest nation on Earth, during the greatest economic boom the world has ever seen, are stockpiling beans, rice, and freeze-dried beef.

Instead of planning for meals in the bunker, maybe it's time to get ahead of these issues and pick leaders who might avoid or mitigate these issues. Pouring accelerants on the flames from the golf course via twitter rarely calms people down.

At least you'll have a payroll tax cut and a hotel industry bail-out while you're in hiding.

You can easily work from home, yes?
 
Not as easy (smaller monitor etc.) but I get by. But we don't have much retail traffic (customers in the office) and only 3 humans max. most days. Our social distancing is baked in at this point. Plus it's easier to disinfect the office, so I really think going to the office is a better choice for me. If I get sick with anything, then sure.

A guy was in a couple of weeks ago just sneezing all over the place. Pre-corona, but still. Pissed us all off and we had to shove him out. Over time, we just sort of let people come in and hang out but that's done. There's a little more stringent rule in place about people coming into the back. We say the dog bit someone. Good dog. Kill.


 
Some of my work right now can only be done from home and that meant I moved the rest of the task home, too. I needed to have a radio antenna and gateway set up and connected to the internet. The IT contractor wanted to charge $17K to do a security assessment, even though I had sent the information that I believed showed no security risk. So I attached the antenna to my chimney and set it up at home.

But previously the company IT department totally stuffed up my computer order and, after about a year, I ended up with 3 computers and six new monitors, plus a couple of older monitors. So now I have a pretty good setup to work at home.

Hate to say it, but keeping  the elderly away from large groups is a solid course of action.  These are the folks that will most likely get decimated if the virus gets into their population groups.  

Nursing homes, retirement communities, etc have got to be on the alert - and banning or minimizing visitors must be a high priority until this thing passes.  And the very last place we want the elderly right now is in the clutches of hospital wards where the greatest source of infections is the staff - and nurses - themselves.  MRSA will look like a rank amateur if this thing invades hospital wards.

And with the elderly mostly under lock and key, there will be fewer of them competing with the rest of us as we buy out the stores to hoard TP and every disinfectant we can find - so we can fill our cellars, attics and rafters full.  And profit enormously as we sell it online or out of our trunks, of course.

I worry because of the many elderly in care facilities who depend on relatives visiting and advocating for them to receive proper care. 
 

Yes.  Good point.  I don't see any replacement or substitute for that.

I worry about my friends who work with seniors in the facilities / retirement communities.  If deaths accelerate in their work places due to coronavirus, how well will these people cope?
