Any work conference should have rules in place about this by now.  I know at my office, with the large number of international travelers coming through, we have banned handshakes.  If I tried to shake someone's hands right now, I'd probably be punched in the face.

Fist to face contact is a sure way to catch the virus. All work places are being supplied with one-use steel folding chairs for this purpose.

Our office has the time clock finger-scan for morning and evening. Just cringe-worthy at the end of the day to have to touch that thing. Probably has more germs on it than the toilet seat in the bathroom.  Waiting for the email telling us we can go back to paper time sheets.

Demand they install retina scanners instead.

Well fuck, they just canceled SXSW. If they start canceling all the summer concert tours I’m going to be super pissed.

The Hype and hysteria over this will be so outrageous in a month, there's a good chance literally everything where more than a few people get together in the same place will be cancelled.
Which, to me, is pretty ridiculous, but in a society that over-hypes and overreacts to almost everything, it doesn't matter if it's a real thing or not...this is what's gonna happen with it.
I'm not saying this is a real threat or a BS threat, I'm saying it doesn't matter now, in terms of how people, companies, and events are reacting to it.

At this point I honestly cannot tell if this is a legitimate threat or overhyped by everyone and their brother. It’s definitely a big deal in that people are dying, not saying anything about that. But with so much talk I do not know how worried we really need to be. Indiana and Kentucky had their first cases confirmed yesterday and both declared a state of emergency, unreal.

Well, it's fucked me. Booked to go to the Bahrain Grand Prix, which is now going to be held behind closed doors, so ticket is useless.

Now hoping they decide to ban all travel to the country so I can at least get a refund for the rest of the trip, I don't really fancy a week on a small island with not much to do.

Biggest risk to the US is that your healthcare is so borked people will not bother with medical care and will continue to spread it.

If the media pounded into everyone’s heads every second of the day that tens of thousands of Americans die of the flu every year, the country would be in a constant state of paralysis. But they don’t, so we don’t notice. Coronavirus is serious but certainly no more serious than the flu. And why the fuck haven’t people been washing their hands and covering their mouths for, oh, say the last 150 years or so since we first realized how people get sick?  Everyone acts like this is breaking news and most seem to be buying soap for the first time ever.

I’ve always been a person that doesn’t give a shit but I do think this is going to grow into a mess.


I know a lot of people die from the flu but so far the mortality rate with this has been much higher; the flu mortality rate I think is something like .01% normally.

And to be clear I don’t think this is the end of the world but I do see a lot of failures forth coming in the supply chain.

I’m curious to see what the cruise industry is going to look like after this is all said and done.

Looks like 70 new people sick linked to the nursing home in Washington. Not sure if they are all corona or just the flu.

A Starbucks was shutdown due to an employee testing positive

And Italy is talking about going on serious lockdown

Cuomo announced this morning that he wants all NYers to avoid crowds and let full subway cars pass. He might be the stupidest motherfucker ever.

Trading on Wall Street was temporarily halted this morning because stocks opened down 1,000. Crazy.
