Stocking on supplies and staying at home isn't panic, it's to slow the spread. It may seem drastic but it will work.

So lets say someone decided not to go in quarantine and just live their life as usual and go out in public. Then they get COVID-19 and need to stay home. If they had a family member who was elderly or had a health condition and therefore vulnerable the person with the virus could spread it to them. This is why even people who aren't at high risk need to stay home/keep their distance.

Sorry BroFist, but clearly you're conflating stocking up and hoarding. There's a huuuuuuge difference.

If a lot of people stock up for a long period of time then it makes sense a lot of shelves will be empty

Like if you wanted to quarantine for a month or something you would need a lot of stuff

Which is why it looks like hoarding.

Most people can handle the ET truth if you explain it to them slowly and give them time for it to sink in.

But the Coronavirus isn't over glorified. I'm serious. https://www.nationalreview.com/the-morning-jolt/yes-coronavirus-is-worse-than-the-flu/

It's in the grey area. The Ro is double that of flu, but also 1/9 that of measles for further comparison.

And the trend now suggests specifically because of widespread asymptomality, as the article mentions, that the lethality rate is in fact 1% or less. Again more than flu - but sure as heck not Ebola either.

It belittles the observation that lethality is at the upper age realm. But again that's a fact, it's no different with the flu either. There've been diagnosed people inthe UK who by the time they got to treatment had recovered.

I think the mortality numbers are complicated by the fact there are at least 5 different haplotypes to the genome. What's alarming however is the fact that all five are traceable to Fort Detrick in the US.

That's somewhere the corporatocracy-controlled MSM would never dare to go.

Yeah avoid it if you can, but don't lose sight of the fact that (1) it's not MERS, and (2) somebody here has an agenda.

It turns out that young people should be more careful because they're not as immune as we first thought. The thing about stuff like the flu is we've never seen the coronavirus before and we aren't immune to it and it spreads faster than the flu. The virus is 3x more contagious than the flu and it can survive better in the air(I think I heard it's nine hours I can't remember but its crazy) and it can travel 6 to 10 feet.

You're right about the superman syndrome.

But we have seen the coronavirus, it's the common cold. It then has variants like SARS-CoV-1, a.k.a. SARS, and SARS-CoV-2 is the COVID-19.

It's about double, not triple, the Ro based on what I read. Droplet survival and travel factors however are fairly similar to regular flu, it can last a few hours though not indefinitely on things like metal and glass surfaces. But that was true of other things too.

To you it may be the common cold but to elderly or people with health conditions it is serious. This is way we need to quarantine. More vulnerable people get the coronavirus from people who aren't vulnerable.

I never said it WAS the common cold, just that it was a strain of it.

True it's serious to them. I think you'd agree every viral strain is.

The Ro figure I read was lower than yours. Hopefully time will narrow the statistical variances downward.

DO I understand that right?

The common cold is a coronavirus. So is COVID-19. I gave the viruses each their technical names in a post preceding.

They often refer to it as the "novel coronavirus." But the abrupt way it popped up - and the transplanted stretches of DNA sequencing on it - are more than novel, they bode to have human fingerprints on them. Strangely they trace further back than from China. But if you want more, you should do some independent homework on that from non mainstream sources.

But in short, yes, they are both of the same family/category, as distinguished for example from the flu virus etc.

No I just said it's 3x more contagious than the flu, and it can last in the air for 9 hours.
