Stay away from ppl in any occasion. Cuz when you are isolated, virus can come from no where.

The Daily is usually a terrific podcast. This was like something the National Enquirer would publish. Completely reckless reporting. What were you thinking? People are stressed enough without these unhelpful doomsday predictions.

I think I'm good. im not worried about this mainly because I like to be secluded and prefer not to be around people. also I have a really powerful immune system, if it were Ebola that went world wide I would then watch out due to the fact it attacks the immune system first but otherwise this is nothing more than a joke and only people that have weak immune systems should worry about it.

he says not to stock up on food or do anything to prepare except to “prepare mentally” for the changes that the virus could bring. for example, grocery stores could run low on food. ah yes, if we all just mentally prepare hard enough, the coronavirus won’t hit as hard.
