@Lim I wouldn't worry too much about masks. Official medical advice is that they don't help unless work 100% correctly and even then should only be worn by those affected. Unless you have it.
Here in the UK its business as usual. The Prime minister said not to worry and accept you will lose someone you know. Mostly vunerable and elderly, co-incidently already the ones he complains about paying money out for. A journalist was quoted as saying its a good thing for Britain as it will cull that part of society. Meantime he is likely hiding in a fridge somewhere. (Also for those who don't know, a government mp has a confirmed case)
We have on the one hand people saying its just flu, don't panic. Yet buying all the toilet rolls and emptying the shelves so they can sell at inflated profit. Or those panic buying and emptying shops. Or the rest of us trying to keep heads down and shop as normal. Its not like flu. Its so much not like flu that our local surgey has closed for deep cleaning. The Doctors are warning us that we need to be careful. In our small town of 5000 we have people self isolating as they may have it. No tests are done unless admitted to hospital though as really they don't want to frighten us with real numbers. And we have so little faith in the government, that schools are making their own plans in case they need to close and planning on waiting until THEY think we need to, not the health secretary. Parents now have to drop children off and not enter the building to try to protect everyone.
I worry more about all the millions who didn't realise they needed to wash hands properly until now!
Whenever I venture outside, I go for the hand sanitizer when entering and leaving the building 🧼. I'm being extra diligent about that with my Dad, because he is among the elderly and especially vulnerable to catching the virus. I think he is annoyed with all my reminders 🤣 Luckily my family is not panicking, but we are currently unable to visit my Grandmother at the nursing home do to safety measures. The stores are surprisingly barren here in New England too! 🧻🍞😲
Thank you for the tag @Lim
This pandemic has been freaking me out since it came to Ohio and at least 37 cases have been confirmed. I stay home almost everyday with my little brother while on our 3 week break from school. My mother is working hard to buy everything we needed to survive this disaster. Now all the restaurants and bars are closed, but there is still delivery and carry-out. I am not too worried about myself or my little brother because we can get milder symptoms since we're young and all. Absolutely nobody in my house has been in contact with the virus, if they did not show any symptoms after going out. No one was over 60, pregnant, or had any medical conditions, except my grandmother who has diabetes which is especially the target for coronavirus in my family. I am worried for her the most.
I play all my King games to keep me calm and balanced. Hopefully it will be over by summer. In the meantime for those of you who are quarantined, stay safe and enjoy most of your time here in the King Community. Remember to wash your hands and stay away from people who are showing flu-like symptoms. Wear a face mask if you have any.
Hi all 👋
I live in Jharkhand, India having population of 3.7 crores but luckily not a single positive case has been found till date. Life is quite normal here. But it doesn't mean we are not worried. We are using precautionery measures and keeping eye on news of other states as well as other countries. Public places, schools, offices etc are being cleaned by govt. agency and by local peoples on daily basis. Govt. offices & PSU's including mine advertising the safety measures and distributing masks and sanitiziers. Not a panic condition but we are watchful.

This is a serious situation. Things change day by day. I just watched the Mayor, CDC doctor, Police Chief in a Press Conference addressing changes to minimize the spread of COVID-19. In our area, crowd gatherings are limited to 50 or less. This includes the restaurants. Schools are closed since last week of February and converted into Online Classes.
We have to be responsible. We have to protect ourselves by distancing ourselves from crowd gatherings. COVID-19 affects the Respiratory System. The hospitals have limited number of ventilators, not enough to cover everyone. We don't want to come to a point where hospitals will have to decide who gets into the ventilators and who gets unplugged.
Currently, there is no cure for Corona Virus. According to the CDC, it will take 18 months for the Immunization to be approved. That is a long time considering how many people are already infected.
We have to make responsible individual decisions and changes to minimize the spread of COVID-19.
Thanks for Tagging @Lim
I am living in a City which has highest CoronaVirus Cases in India. Till Now, 32 Patients are confirmed with CoronaVirus in Pune and being Treated at Naidu Hospital in Pune. In Pune, Medical Vaccines are being taken into trial for treatment for CoronaVirus. Similarly, China and US are taking trials for medical vaccines made by respective Countries. While there's a Conflict between Iran and Israel on Vaccines on CoronaVirus. If any of the five vaccines get succeded in recovering humans from CoronaVirus, they will be made available to whole world. It's basic idea is to make a receptor implant on our immunity system cells so they can fight CoronaVirus. Since it's has same symptoms as of Respiratory Diseases like Normal Flu, Masks are proving better for this issues. Here, 50% Schools and Colleges are closed for taking measures against CoronaVirus. For those who have important exams like passing High School and Graduate, only Exam of these people will take place here. There's being impact on Tourism, (since CoronaVirus came from Dubai to India) Technology, Sports and Transportation, prices are hiking and Sports is being cancelled in the Country.
Wear A Mask and Travel is the key to Survive.
Have A Healthy Living!!
It really is scary. Well I have no plans for leaving the house. I still have a few rolls of toilet paper left.
Tiffi helped me this morning. If you get bored then you can do some of the puzzles that I created here.
I work in retail so it's been a hard time all the panic buying I see is crazy. Keeping out of the way for this virus is hard for me but I'm sure I'll be alright I'm using antibacterial sanitizer all the time. Hope everyone is keeping well and save!
From Singapore, not much changes for me ...
no more going to crowded places, such as shopping centers. But if needed, wear surgical mask at crowded places...
yes, masks is for those unwell... but we have to take precaution as there r many unwell who don’t feel that they r unwell n thus don’t wear masks and hence become the start of the source to create cluster affected area
