Coronavirus Lounge thread

BBC News in the UK has done a report from inside one of the country's biggest toilet paper factories to hopefully get people to calm the fuck down about bulk buying & hoarding this stuff.

I was just looking at some flights to Colombia & Ireland in the late summer (august) / December. Prices look pretty good. You can imagine that the airlines will have reduced gas prices and will be losing a ton of money right now and want to lock in revenue.
Here is a short article on the polio panic in the US. Now polio is a disease to be afraid of. If you were a parent, you had to worry about your children becoming permanently crippled. Imagine living in the forties. You had to worry about polio, the Great Depression, and World War II all at the same time. Now I know why my parents were so mentally strong.

We are lucky this virus is relatively benign, many don’t even get symptoms. We could easily ramp up a plan to take care of the few who get sick. You don’t need a private hospital room with a $10,000 movable bed. Sick people are actually healthier in a communal environment, because being around people helps us get well.

We are going to get through this. This isn’t something that kills most of the population.

The changes that come from this could be our last chance at survival. The first is we all must now realize that China is our enemy and we need to stop empowering them. Also, the immoral capitalism that has been practiced needs to change. Immorality has consequences. Elites make trillions by arbitraging slave labor in china. Their accounting sheets say they are doing an efficient thing to make profits. But the economists talk about externalities. That is the enormous real cost, including the spread of this virus. We have all been willing to buy cheap Chinese shit at Walmart. In the long run it turns out to be more expensive then producing at home when you include the externalities (paid by us, not the profit makers).

Who thinks I should bug out now if I live near a major city.

And the men said unto Lot, Hast thou here any besides? son in law, and thy sons, and thy daughters, and whatsoever thou hast in the city, bring them out of this place: For we will destroy this place, because the cry of them is waxen great before the face of the LORD; and the LORD hath sent us to destroy it.
--Genesis 19:12-13. (I'll settle for the KJV on this one)
