    Dude, I haven't even looked at CNN.

    But I have seen what's happening in Italy. I saw what happened in China. I am seeing what's going on in Iran. Etc.

    I have also seen ignorant people equating this with the flu or calling it a hoax and thus doing things like touching every microphone at a press conference, mocking the calamity by wearing a gas mask on the House floor, or joking about social distancing on a national news broadcast, flying despite feeling ill and waiting for COVID19 results, touching their mouths and noses in public, before touching touch screens and doors, etc., and coughing and sneezing into the air or their hands before handing someone something, or touching surface.

    It is ignorance that has caused this to be the disaster that it is, not fear.

    The CDC states we should practice social distancing and stay 6 feet away form one another, to help stop this spread. is that a result of a hoax? Do you not understand how that necessary preventive action disrupts life as we know it?

    I want to point out to those watching this PC, whether or not you like or trust the president, most of us do trust these doctors on the task force. Whenever the president speaks, they constantly nod in agreement with him.

    I know one thing for certain. Disney does not shut down its entire enterprise for extended period of time because of whipped up hysteria.

    It's really not. Other nations are having issues too and every citizen of every nation should have the right to expect better.

    It's not a choice between acceptance of the way things are being handled or leave the country we love.

    I'm not a dude, thank you! I've tried to explain the hoax behind the opinions, not the virus. If you didn't understand, than I can't explain it any better. MOO

    Movie substitutes: The Natural, Moneyball, Major League, Eight Men Out,
    A League of Their Own, Bull Durham, The Sandlot, Field of Dreams...**

    Yes, I totally agree. Most of us the thread are prepared, knowledgeable, researched, and followed this from the beginning.

    We have banned together with ideas, shared how to make sanitizer,suggested things we might need, discussed contingency plans, held each others while some have awaited testing or their family.

    I was raised to be prepared and be prepared to help others, not all are cut from this cloth.

    I’m glad you’re well!
    The only hysteria I see is regarding the test, I think a lot of people want the test but have no reason to be tested. One trip to a store does not mean someone needs to be tested, but it appears a lot of people think they should get a test on a whim. If they test negative and go for dinner tomorrow, will they expect another test? Since there is no treatment, I’m not sure what most expect from a test. And the TP hysteria....., a completely different issue.
    Do you believe all opinion to be inaccurate? I believe the opinion of WHO.
