Corona Virus are you ready?

Corona Virus are you ready?

My over educated daughter, BS cellular biology Sonoma State, MS pharmacology University of the Pacific and Ph.D. microbiology from the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. Most of the time says everyone overreacts on the flu etc. She is telling me to get ready for this one. She expects many schools and colleges to be closed. She told me to have enough food and meds to go at least 2 weeks if the government says we need to self-quarantine. The only bright spot she sees is the virus is not hitting small kids. As far as us old people not good.

What are you doing if anything?

Edit. We now have a Covid 19 forum

I'm happy that we moved to the foothills and have the space to self isolate. Going to stock the freezer and pantry. Make sure I got enough rolling papers to last.

I guess it comes down to how much of a run on food and supplies happens when it does hit.

I had a neighbor near my old house, in the Bay Area, who had an entire wall in his garage filled with stacked cases of water. I couldn't help wondering how many of those will come crashing to the floor in the event of an earthquake.
