    forgot , it looked liked less than half that normally walk to work , normally you see heaps of school kids , not now . my neighbors who saved my life took their girls out of school and are on holiday in their hometown on the Sunshine Coast , that`s north of Brisbane . one of the girls had 3 kids in her class and the other had 8 kids , so parents took them out for a week because school holidays coming up as well . it`s good because less kids in school , so their well spaced .

    Here in Kentucky we’re not on travel restrictions yet schools are closed a minimum of 3 more weeks. All inessential stores are closed. My business is still going strong. We have 7 houses started and contracts singed in 8 more. There’s been one couple back out so far. I haven’t started their house yet. Interest rates are rock bottom. There’s a lot of people hurting from lost jobs and layoffs.

    Store employees are starting to hoard scarce resources for themselves.

    I asked for gloves and the clerk initially said what's on the shelves is all they have.

    As I finished paying, the clerk eventually volunteered that they had a pack of gloves. She walked me to the back storage area. It was HUGE. Easily as large as the showroom floor. She grabbed one pack for me.

    This is all so sad.

    False Equivalency, but I agree that the media has drastically overblown things and caused a panic that in hindsight will be considered much worse than the virus itself. And now we are seeing "experts" roll back their initial doomsday estimates since no one in the world is seeing 2 million dead by the end of this week. Once this is done will anyone believe the media, "experts" and/or government ever again?

    meanpinball , we`re a a funny bunch here , we have so many disasters that our brains are fine tuned to any disaster that comes along , we follow like sheep . when we had the mass shooting in 1996 at Port Arthur , our Prime Minister brought in new strict gun laws within a month , yep we followed like sheep for the better . amazing no mass shootings since . the police are fining the dipsticks that aern`t following orders . looks like another stimulus package this morning , mainly to help the people that rent and the homeless ,great move that one .

    New York turns to prison labor to meet hand sanitizer demand:

    https://time.com/5799710/new-york-ha...-prison-labor/

    Working inmates in New York are paid between $0.10 to $0.33 an hour

    New York hospitals are overwhelmed and have a shortage of beds:

    Eight people across New York are currently being hospitalized with the illness.

    There are some positive signs from retailers that the hoarding has passed. At least for now.

    Many retailers are rationing, and I doubt that credit lines or storage can allow for indefinite hoarding.

    Third, most retailers are barring returns across the board or for specific items which is the logical move for the short term.

    My prediction is that retail stock will return to semi-normal levels in 2 to 4 weeks.

    Yes, manufacturing is slower, but the number of daily shoppers and the amounts they buy have decreased sharply as well. I am concerned but not unduly alarmed.

    have not seen a roll o tail timber on the shelves in a coupla weeks. still have about 3 packs. i guess wash it off in the shower and hope it goes down the drain (ew!). people are such big pussies, hording like it is the end of the world. food not so bad, still a good supply at the store. the gov is out to destroy the economy with all these shutdowns. but let's not talk politics.

    A fascinating article showing how even a highly accurate test can generate a huge number of false positives, and hence, a phony "epidemic":

    http://healthinsightuk.org/2020/02/1...dont-have-one/

    For example, test 10 million (pop of Wuhan), with 99% accuracy

    Step 1: 100,000 false positives. This can be used as a declaration of an "epidemic" even though none of the 100,000 are sick or infected.

    Step 2: use the most toxic drugs. This kills many more people than any virus.

    Step 3: use the deaths from the drugs to declare an even larger epidemic, leading to more tests, more false positives, more toxic drugs, more deaths, etc.

    All small business will be destroyed as a result of these shutdowns.

    Only the mega retailers will be left standing.
