Are people freaking worse than the standard cat 5 hurricane prep? (I lived there many years)
In my part of the state, the only people freaking out are healthcare workers, and that's because they have to be at the center of it all in a state full of old ass people. Walmart tonight looked like walmart every other night. I think people around my area will only start getting twitchy when the southeast gets some confirmed cases under its belt. (Which is funny since florida is super popular as a travel destination so we might be hit before Georgia or Alabama)

Fuck not the shithole my grandma lives in :( it was inevitable, but you know.

Kim Jong Un tells officials that they will be dealt with harshly if Coronavirus is not contained kept out of the country:
Kim warns of 'serious consequences' if virus reaches North Korea

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un warned top party officials of the "serious consequences" of failing to prevent an outbreak of the new coronavirus in the country, state media reported Saturday.

The impoverished nation, with a weak and ill-equipped healthcare system, has closed its borders to prevent the spread of the disease into its territory.

Kim told a meeting of the ruling Workers' Party of Korea that the fight against the virus was a "crucial state affair for the defence of the people" that required maximum discipline, according to the official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).

"In case the infectious disease spreading beyond control finds its way into our country, it will entail serious consequences," KCNA quoted Kim as saying.

Two senior officials -- party vice-chairmen Ri Man Gon and Pak Thae Dok -- were sacked, and a party unit disbanded for corruption, the report said, indicating that they may have been involved in graft linked with the anti-epidemic measures.

"No special cases must be allowed," he added, and ordered officials to "seal off all the channels and space through which the infectious disease may find its way".

Pyongyang has not reported a single case of COVID-19, which has killed more than 2,800 people and infected over 84,000 people in dozens of countries since it emerged in neighbouring China.

North Korea has banned tourists, suspended international trains and flights and placed hundreds of foreigners in quarantine to prevent an outbreak. It has also reportedly postponed the new school term.

With loudspeakers blaring hygiene messages, ambassadors locked in their compounds, and state media demanding "absolute obedience", North Korea's anti-coronavirus measures have been described as "unprecedented" by diplomats.

South Korea, meanwhile, is battling a major outbreak of the virus with more than 2,300 cases -- the highest number outside mainland China.

Germany's ambassador to the United Nations has said the Security Council would adopt humanitarian exemptions to the sanctions imposed on Pyongyang over its weapons programmes, and allow the export of equipment to help North Korea fight the coronavirus.

But "the problem is that right now the North Koreans closed the borders," Christoph Heusgen said Thursday after a closed-door Security Council meeting about the reclusive state.

The members of the Security Council called on North Korea "to allow this equipment in. So the population can be protected," he added, without elaborating on the type of equipment.

It's in NK. We know it's in NK. It leaked out that there were at least 5 cases in the two hospitals closest to the Chinese border. That it was crossing the Yalu River with smugglers. That was a day or two after China shut things down. Lil Kim did do the right thing and close his borders. But they've gotta be pretty well fucked. They cancelled their big annual military anniversary parade very early on. And there was talk of Army units compromised. Further Trumps little Rocket Man has been dead quiet lately. Beyond some polite backchannel thank yous when Trump reduced the sanctions to allow the Red Cross in to assist NK. You get this feeling that NK is going to look like that one episode of Babylon 5. The one where the Doctor cooks up the magic vacine, races it to the dying race, and he's already too late. Everybody is dead.

Investors are reeling after virus fears wiped nearly $3 trillion off the combined market value of S&P 500 companies this week, with the index confirming its fastest correction in history in volatile trading on Thursday.
Globally, some $6 trillion, or about 10 percent, has been erased from stock values as markets in Asia and Europe plunged on fears that the outbreak will shrivel corporate profits there. At their heart, stock prices are determined by expectations of a company's future profits.
Even as the outbreak eases in China, investors have been rattled by the rapid spread of the disease in other countries, which now account for about three-quarters of new infections.

Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell indicated the central bank was prepared to cut interest rates as necessary to help cushion the economy against the effects of the spreading virus.
'The fundamentals of the US economy remain strong,' he said in a statement released on Friday. 'However, the coronavirus poses evolving risks to economic activity.'
'The Federal Reserve is closely monitoring developments and their implications for the economic outlook,' he said. 'We will use our tools and act as appropriate to support the economy.'

I say shut it down until people have a good idea of what is going on. Maybe by then Bernie also won't be the front runner, curing both of the markets fears.
 

Underestimated Nutria

Warning: slight power level

I have to take a few different drugs and I'm concerned about not being able to fill them on time. These are drugs that I can't just quite cold turkey. Even tapering down conservatively is a nightmare.

Can anyone in the medical industry weigh in on which drugs are most at risk? I'm mostly worried about benzodiazepines and stimulants. Benzodiazepine withdrawal is complete hell, and even having to go without a few days while the pharmacy plays catch up is long enough to risk seizures. This as well as stimulants like vyvanse or adderall.

I would wager more than a few kiwis might take one of these too. I know adderall gets a bad rap here, but there are conditions that absolutely require it as treatment, and not just to study for finals. I know people on benzos that are absolutely homicidal if they miss even a day.

Should I call up my doc and ask for early refills? Several of these meds are controlled substances, so I'm really doubtful they would provide a script. I dont want to come off as paranoid either, since my doc is a boomer and I'm quite sure he would see it as that.

We thankfully have prepped for nearly a month now, long before Amazon started delays and certain resources were bought in bulk off shelves. Got ourselves a respirator each with 2 filters. Someone earlier claimed that they can be washed and reused, but I lost the page. Any truth to that?

Lots of great advice in this thread already, but I recommend going through each room in the house, think of what you do in each room, what you need to accomplish those chores. Look at each object. Are you low on anything? Do you have two months' supply worth of it? What are going to be in most demand, should the local stores delay restocking?

I'm sure most of you all are already thinking about your dogs... remember to stock up on treats and chew toys. If shit gets bad you might not be as eager to go for walks, especially if you aren't in a rural area. Those pups need to let their wiggles out somehow, and sometimes just teaching your dog tricks and keeping its mind active is just as fun for them.

In my country, there's a website that allows you to track medicine shortages, etc. Should be something similar in the US or where you are, surely? So far business as usual where I live, at any rate (there's always 100+ medications in shortage or completely out here ... )

You'd think a drug that's as easy to synthesise (and from such common reagents) as valium or adderall would never run out, but my country is out of adrenaline, so common sense doesn't mean much, I guess.

I looked at the French institute's website that helped build the lab in Wuhan, and there is no mention of covid or corona virus on their website (that I could find anyway, their website is not user-friendly at all). Usually, in such a scenario, you make some sort of boilerplate press release saying that you "are cooperating with authorities, etc."

I find this lack of transparency disturbing. Are they in on this?

They stopped Ebola-chan on her last tour in Africa, so that means they probably have a drug-resistant strain of Ebola locked away somewhere.

I am archiving a press release from their website where they received a major award from the Chinese government in connection with the Wuhan lab in 2018 before it gets memory-holed.

My parents said there were lots of panic buys in Berlin yesterday. They coulnd't even find guinea pig food (!!). They went from shop to shop but it was sold out. Thank god they found some eventually. I'm concerned about all the poor pets who might have to starve to death.

I'm thinking about stocking on food & water too. Just in case.

Raising guinea pigs as meat isn’t a bad idea actually

As has been discussed earlier in this thread, I think I've met a nice balance of being concerned/maintaining awareness (I follow this thread daily), but not spiraling into a state of panic. If anything, this whole mess has paradoxically given me a boost in optimism for the future, a feeling I rarely have these days. I guess the takeaway is hope shines brightest in the darkest of nights.

Oh yeah, the Wu Flu is definitely in Best Korea; there was no keeping it out. What Lil' Kim actually cares about, however, is that Corona-chan not make her appearance in Pyongyang, or along the southern border, where foreigners might get a chance to see just how ill-equipped NK is to deal with it. And I'm pretty sure he doesn't even want the residents of Pyongyang to know about its progress.

So his strategy for managing the epidemic, I expect, is quarantine lockdowns, further restrictions on both internal travel and the flow of information, and severe punishments for individuals who "spread rumors" about the spread of the disease, the death toll, and the total inability for medical personnel to do anything about it. In NK, people are encouraged to report others' offenses against the state, no matter how minor. So when you do get snitched on for telling the truth about how many are dead in your town or province, or how there is no medical care available, the government will not just punish you, but also your family, across three generations. That's a pretty strong incentive to keep one's mouth shut.

Kim Jong-un is okay with the populations of smaller towns and cities and rural areas ending up decimated by the coronavirus; after all, this is the guy whose father let millions of his own subjects starve to death back in the '90s, rather than lose face by admitting there was a famine and requesting aid from the international community. He's going to follow Kim Jong-il's example, here. And, in the meantime,he's going to keep up the best front possible from Pyongyang.

But the work of maintaining quarantine and keeping people silenced (or, perhaps, going ahead and silencing them permanently) has no doubt fallen to the army, thus they are spread too thin to put on a proper military display this year. And yes, a lot of those soldiers have probably fallen ill, or been directly exposed to ill people, and thus can't be allowed into Pyongyang for fear of infecting others.

"It's always far, far worse than you could ever have imagined" is pretty much the phrase to keep in mind when looking at North Korea. Someday, we'll get stories about this epidemic from people who lived and escaped to tell about it, and I have no doubt they will be absolutely horrifying.

edit to add: NK is not alone in its governance of this outbreak.

Meanwhile Singapore is rapidly developing the capability to mass produce serological tests, which are very accurate and can be used to screen people in contagious areas so we can get a better understanding of the whole asymptomatic infection thing.
This is the data I want to see. If it’s rampant already I think we can actually be more positive about it because it means that the severe cases are a lower proportion. We can’t keep just using rtpcr,
And again, this is how the system should be working - surveillance of disease is SO important. It’s not cool, or worth big political points, but it’s incredibly important. It’s why all the woke nonsense is so dangerous - you cannot base public health decisions on feelings or woke points. Quarantining anyone coming in from from China or any area of infection is not racist, it’s a call made on probabilities. Accurate data has to inform these decisions or we are fucked.

Someone mentioned zika and Ebola panic a while back. Both these diseases were big public health threats but both were able to be contained in different ways.
Ebola is horrific, but it’s not transmissible unless you touch someone or their body fluids. And it’s lethal as fuck so it’s, ironically, killing people fast, which helps contain it. If you observe very basic quarantined it will burn out. The WHO have had a lot of flak (rightly IMO) in here but remember they’re a huge organisation and some bits do work well and are staffed by dedicated people. Ebola was stopped because we had the right response.
Zika will probably become endemic. In Africa, it’s one of those childhood diseases everyone’s exposed to and gets before adulthood. So pregnant women aren’t the main host. When it moves to a new society, zika hits everyone at first, and you get the awful effects on foetuses. But in ten years time it will just be another childhood fever in South America and it’ll be largely forgotten, probably a vaccine for it. Like rubella is here.

this Coronavirus isn’t like either of the above. In terms of spread it’s like a pandemic novel flu strain, and we need to accept the possibility that not only will it become endemic but that it might end up, like flu, reassuring with wild viruses to generate yearly new versions.
The critical thing now is how many people have been exposed to this? If it’s everyone and it’s been around two months and we have seen a hundred severe cases that’s a different scenario to it just breaking into the population and us seeing a hundred severe cases.

''Pope Francis sick a day after supporting coronavirus sufferers"

Pope Francis has come down with a “slight indisposition,” forcing him to cancel a planned Mass in Rome, just a day after he expressed his solidarity with coronavirus sufferers around the world — and as the disease continues to spread across Italy.

The illness has forced the 82-year-old pontiff to nix a penitential Mass, marking the start of Lent, that he’d planned to celebrate at the St. John Lateran basilica across town with Roman clergy, the Vatican said.

Francis will proceed with the rest of his planned work Thursday, but “preferred to stay near Santa Marta,” the Vatican hotel where he lives, officials said.

The Vatican has not specified the nature of the pope’s illness, but he was seen coughing and blowing his nose during Ash Wednesday Mass.

Meanwhile, 400 cases of coronavirus have been confirmed in Italy, and 12 people have died. Most of the cases have been reported in northern Italy.

Three cases were reported in Rome, but each person has already recovered.

During a General Audience in St. Peter’s Square on Ash Wednesday, the pope expressed his support for coronavirus sufferers.,

“I wish, again, to express my closeness to those who are ill with coronavirus and to health care workers who are caring for them,” he said, according to Vatican News.

Francis has not specifically met with coronavirus sufferers, but shook hands with the faithful in the front row during the audience. He also kissed a baby during his popemobile spin through St. Peter’s Square and greeted visiting bishops.
