In the hospitals I work with all elective surgeries have been canceled. In the therapy and medical clinics all outpatients that are not acutely ill have been canceled. Physicians, nurses, Physical Therapists and others are treating patients through telemedicine. Some hospital staff are gearing up. Many hospital and clinic staff are being furloughed, told to go home, and most outpatient centers shutting their doors. Hospitals are setting up screening centers in their parking lots and creating surge plans. Consultants are helping identify hall spaces for overflow, and areas for isolation. Trying to help logistics of supply delivery, and reuse. Hospital finances are crashing. And they've asked us consultants to work from home. It's been webex 8 hours a day, but for the hospital managers and executives, 12-16 hour days. The streets of Boston and Andover are mostly empty. All this in the last 6 calendar days.

In Holland it's the same as you describe..
All shops are closed but not the food shops.
one and half meters distance.
No airplanes less cars,it's still in the streets..
I do'nt know numbers..but it is increasing ..
Keeping distance in the shops..
It's like you discribe same here.All things gatherings are canceled.
My puber grandchild does what he wants like others from his age..
My daughter was just before the outbreak in North Italy..but she and my grand daugher both are still fine.
Sometimes there is panic in the air..but it seems a bit lesser right now..
People seem quiet and adjusting more..
Lot's of vulnarable people especially elder ones stay home in quarantine.
There not must tests only by fever and cough..
The more people get the ilness and get immune the better for the weaker in the long run is the policy here..so the weaker stay home..in quarantine
This for now..he news here..

I’ve been trying to find amusing and ways of dealing with this crisis/catastrophe. Why not... we can’t ALL panic.

@theyearofelan posted this on Twitter which is both fun and funny:

“Your quarantine nickname is how you feel right now + the last thing you ate out of the cupboard”

Mine is ‘Hopeful Oats’. I have extremely weird food cravings. I eat spinach salads for dinner 3 or 4 times a week and plain oatmeal with peanut butter almost every day for breakfast and sometimes dinner. I’ve always been really weird with food. I hate fried foods—the smell makes me sick. Can’t mix fruit with anything. Have to eat it by itself. Wheat makes me tired so I avoid it. I love vegetables unlike a lot of people and tofu too. But prefer pretty plain food. Mild is my version of spicy. 😝

But what’s wrong with that?🤷‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️ (my hair is more of its natural brown now, like anyone cares).

I don’t believe this is the new normal. We’re still in free fall and when we land we’re going to have to rebuild. And whatever that involves will be our new normal... at least for a while. Despite the horrors of war (and this is a war), some really good things can come out of it.

Not afraid. I think it will be less fearful if we embrace change while doing everything we can to keep ourselves, our family, our friends and our neighbors safe, comforted and healthy.

@Spence

Yes, the accelerated rate of change is the most unsettling part which is why I’m really trying to embrace change now more than ever.

My mom retired from the VA many years ago but continued to work in private practice for an eye surgeon. The governor decided that was elective surgery and requested all elective surgery centers to close.

Overnight, the whole world slowed or stopped. Everything accept for COVID-19.

God forbid we have a natural disaster in the midst of this. I’m just so thankful we have lockdowns, social distancing and people staying at home so that we don’t have to witness the stereotypical Hollywood-end-of-the-world-preachers standing on street corners.

Street corners closed for business. 🚷

I live in the west of the UK where only 7 cases are reported at the moment. There are a number of supermarkets experiencing 'panic buying' – mostly toilet rolls!! People suspected of having the virus are self-isolating. The majority are practising self-distancing whether with neighbours, shops cafes' etc. Even cafes' have spaced tables two metres apart. My daughter works as a receptionist in in a local G.P's and has an asthmatic cough so has been sent home to self-isolate for two weeks.

Sad to see that Donald Trump is calling it the Chinese virus. Yes, it originated in China but to blame them helps no-one – except perhaps Mr. Trump who often looks for someone to blame when he is trying to maintain his own self-image (ego) and postion. When Spanish flu emerged, people didn't blame Kansas where it was suspected it originated from or Swine flu that was either Mexico or the USA.

Trump has not helped the world with his dealings with climate change or with the Iran nuclear deal – or his dealings with Israel re the land occupation of Palestine. History will show correct blame on these issues.

i live in the Memphis, TN area and we have 12 confirmed cases. But, like others have said, testing has been limited so there are probably more that just haven't been confirmed. The company I work for is still open and everyone is still coming into work. I haven't been to a grocery store in a few days, but I've heard that they are fairly well stocked. It just depends on when you go versus when they get more stock from suppliers.
Most churches, gyms, libraries, schools, etc are closed. My tai chi instructor and I trained the other night outdoors and kept a 10 foot distance between us. A gym that i go to is offering online classes that I will try out this weekend.
It seems that many businesses are still operating. Like most places, the restaurants are drive through or take out only. Traffic is noticeably lighter driving to and from work.
I hope everyone stays safe and healthy.

Here on Northern California everything and everyone is in lockdown. Only essential businesses are open and if we go out to get groceries we can and have been stopped by cops asking why we are out. So they are strict and it’s a good thing. I’m hearing this will continue for several weeks so yes perhaps the new norm.

I live in London which has the highest number of cases in UK and my nephew and his family have it, only his wife has been tested as she has an underlying health problem, the result took five days and came back positive She has been very unwell indeed but her temperature has dropped now and she has been able to eat a little. The hospital phones every day to check how she is and have said she is probably now over the dangerous period.
Panic shoppers have been stripping the shelves bare as soon as supplies arrive in my local supermarket but it has now introduced a "silver hour" first thing in the morning for us over 70s. They are also now limiting purchases to a maximum of four of any item. Tried their online service but there are no delivery slots for at least three weeks.
I was booked in for hip replacement surgery next month but it has been cancelled.
Am following Government advice to stay at home as much as possible and not accept any visitors, even family.

"Sad to see that Donald Trump is calling it the Chinese virus."

Sure, we don't need to 'blame' the Chinese for the coronavirus but hey, it did start in China. Did it not start from people eating all sorts of strange animals like bats, snakes.

"At the end of December 2019, Chinese public health authorities reported several cases of acute respiratory syndrome in Wuhan City, Hubei province, China. Chinese scientists soon identified a novel coronavirus as the main causative agent. The disease is now referred to as coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), and the causative virus is called severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). It is a new strain of coronavirus that has not been previously identified in humans."

"We can’t ignore the link between meat and outbreaks of diseases like COVID-19. Humans’ insatiable demand for meat, eggs, and dairy means that huge numbers of animals are reared in intensive confinement in giant, filthy warehouses."

“ Sure, we don't need to 'blame' the Chinese for the coronavirus but hey, it did start in China. Did it not start from people eating all sorts of strange animals like bats, snakes.”

Jen this statement is not true. Bats and snakes are the reservoir hosts of these viruses however all other animals slaughtered for food can be amplifier hosts and may get the viruses from
The original reservoir hosts. Which means chickens, pig etc all these can contain any virus like or worse than covid19.

So don’t think that just because one doesn’t eat bats or other exotic animals you didn’t contribute to the cause of this illness. We are all responsible. If you consume animal products you are equally responsible and no different from anyone else that does the same.
Like I said it’s not corona it’s karma

Let’s wake up. Just look at China and Italy and wake up.

Jen from Austin Texas,

You say: "If you consume animal products you are equally responsible and no different from anyone else that does the same.
Like I said it’s not corona it’s karma"

I've been a strict vegetarian for over 50 years. I'm in my 70's now and I don't agree that I am equally responsible. If its karma from a previous life then so be it. Everyone will get what they deserve according to their karma.

Personally, I like the name Kung Flu. Lol😅 It’s creative and we can’t afford to be overly sensitive at a time when we have to be overly cautious too. If the virus doesn’t kill you, the dead seriousness of this chaos just might.

Jen, I know you’re a vegetarian and I have an issue with the CCP so I don’t get too upset when Trump says “Chinese virus” as long as the average person remembers that the Chinese people and the CCP are not synonymous.

Remember the TV show Portlandia? Well I think we need something similar called Pandemica that pokes fun at some of the neurotic stuff we’re doing in response to this pandemic. I find myself thinking and doing crazy stuff. Like today I was at Fred Meijers and it made me laugh to see the cosmetics aisle wiped out. Really?? 😂

Then when I strolled my cart past another bare section that had a sign reading, “This item is in high demand.” I immediately thought I’d better grab the last four bottles of that vegetable oil. I don’t even cook with vegetable oil! I only use olive oil.

It’s just weird. All of it. And what isn’t weird is scary. But some of it’s pretty funny. And I’m not going to be able to keep my sanity if everyone keeps walking around all dead serious.

I resorted to watching The Sound of Music with my niece last night. 😂 I may have seen it when I was really young but I don’t think so. It was a silly but fun escape for the first half... until the whole Nazi scene. Then it brought me back to the present and I started thinking that we’re currently in sort of in a WW3 situation.

Nazis aren’t funny. Getting COVID-19 isn’t funny either, but a lot of our behavior is.

@Martin,

I hope your nephew and his family get better soon. Stay safe!

Hi Sonia,

You say "It’s just weird. All of it. And what isn’t weird is scary."

It is very weird and scary. Never experienced this kind of emptiness and quietness before. Everything so quiet. No people around. No sounds, no people talking. Empty car spaces. Shops empty. Feels like the end of the world is nigh.

Sorry not all shops are closed in Holland,but reataurants pubs and all sorts of gatherings are closed.

It does have that zombie apocalypse feel to it... Many, many people are complaining about feeling lonely and isolated and bored. Especially the kids. But every in general seems to be experiencing a sense of disconnectedness in one form or another.

I believe this will pass and we will get through it, but I don’t believe our world will ever be quite the same again. Maybe it will be better in some ways in the future. Who can say...

There’s a lot of advice and many news articles on how to stay sane during this crisis. Overall, in the grand scheme, it is just as damaging psychologically as physically.

The big irony is we’re all in this together except we’re isolated.

All pubs, bars, restaurants in UK ordered to close but not until day after the announcement. Consequently a surge in customers taking advantage of their last chance to party for a while and some pubs even having a "half price drink us dry night". Mind boggling.

Coping might just be adjusting our attitude...
"“Attitude is everything: I'm on an adventure in a confined space with a small crew for a long duration mission, with occasional space walks and resupply missions. Sounds like astronaut training to me.”

We're future astronauts in training now. And the training simulator is our home. It just got real. But hey, we're rehearsing for an incredible journey.

https://komonews.com/news/coronavirus/going-stir-crazy-then-train-like-an-astronaut-and-mimic-space

In Thailand, the number of confirmed cases seems to be increasing day by day.
The government has taken some measures in regards to campaigning for a city wide lockdown. Tomorrow, all malls, and markets will be closed (except for grocery stores and supermarkets). Restaurants can only do takeaways.
Almost everybody seems to be wearing a mask when in public.
All social media seems to be filled with news about covid 19. To be honest, I've had it up to here with all the hype and madness surrounding this Chinese virus.
Sick of this crap!

Jen I didn’t mean you particularly responsible I mean those that do are. When will we realize that this is the reason we are here and stop our actions?
We need to learn it’s high time.

H Jen from Austin
I was just wondering if the world were vegetarian, even vegan, world that have stopped this virus? Do all viruses that become airborn start with humans eating animals? Or are we going to have viruses one way or another?

Spence many of the viruses we have had that have caused havoc (Ebola, swine flu, mad cow, HIV,SARS, mers , bird flu and now covid19) have all jumped from animal to Human. So you answer your question.

Good question! But another good question would be, if everyone in the world were vegetarian what kind of world would it be??? Would we be more compassionate and environmentally conscious? I mean, what on earth would actually motivate the people in this world to go vegetarian? It would require a total shift in values... which in and of itself would change the way we live in every aspect of our lives. And if we had completely different values from the start I doubt we humans would have done as much damage to the earth as we have.

Beautiful and uplifting trend on Twitter - #LoveThyNeighbor. Check it out. Lots of heartwarming stories and wonderful ideas on how to help those in your neighborhood and community.

Meat industries have the support of governments and intelligence agencies, who just care about their taste buds.

I think Patrick O Brown is a hero of Vegan community. He succeded in creating exact copy of beef and pork.

The only way to fight this virus is to increase your immunity. The solution is to eat something that increases your immunity.

See this ayurvedic medicine-

https://www.amazon.in/VITRO-IMMUNITY-BOOSTER-PREMIUM-JUICE/dp/B07L733J44

Astragalus is a chinese herb which boosts your immunity at a very high rate.

The Chinese are using combination of herbs and traditional medicine along with alopathy which the western nations are not using:

https://www.google.co.in/amp/s/amp.cnn.com/cnn/2020/03/14/asia/coronavirus-traditional-chinese-medicine-intl-hnk/index.html?espv=1

Definitely build up your immune system. That’s something we should work towards on a daily basis, pandemic or no pandemic. But please don’t rely on naturopathic medicine alone once you are infected with COVID-19. You might get lucky, but I wouldn’t take that chance. If you have symptoms or have been in contact with someone you know who has the virus, then get tested and get some “allo” help along with your aloe. :)

Here is an advisory issued my Ministy of AYUSH long back:

https://pib.gov.in/PressReleasePage.aspx?PRID=1600895

More than 70% of the Indians eat a thing called Chyawanprash daily. This is the golden medicine for immunity in Ayurveda:

India -

March 22:

The entire nation participates in a day long 'Janata ka Curfew' (A voluntary curfew by the people) in response to a request by the Prime Minister.

From 5pm to 5:05pm (which extended to over 20 minutes)

1.3 billion unite and pay a huge round of applause / salute from their houses/apartments to all those Indians fighting the virus - doctors and nurses and all those engaged in providing the essential services - the fire fighters, public transport operators, the police, sanitation workers, the army etc.

This amidst the slow and steady lockdowns being effected accross the country to contain the outbreak. (75 districts across india - mainly covering major cities/ regions with reported instances) until 31st March.

Still stage 2 officially (though I personally doubt this). Official statistics : ~350 cases and 5 deaths but numbers doubled in 3 days.

It is 5 pm here in India and foolish Indians are clapping and beating utensils to ward off Coronavirus.(As ordered by follish Modi)

And I am laughing by falling on the floor. Literally!!!!!!!!!

Dutch PM Tells Citizens to Relax, Saying There's Enough Toilet Paper for 10 Years

March 19, 2020

AMSTERDAM — The prime minister in the Netherlands has offered reassurances amid the global coronavirus outbreak: telling citizens on Thursday there is no shortage of toilet paper.

"Yes, I have enough," Mark Rutte told a shopper in an informal exchange while visiting a supermarket to show support for workers. "They have it (on shelves) again."

"But there's enough in the whole country for the coming 10 years," he said. "We can all poop for 10 years."

Dutch supermarkets shelves have mostly refilled following a stockpiling episode last week.

Here in Spain, its 10th day we’re in lockdown. Virus cases on rise. Hospitals collapsed in the Capital and nearby places. The public is respecting the lockdown

I’m not at my usual place of residence but in my second home which is a tourist place.
The weather is nice here, beaches without any people. Empty roads, with nearly no vehicles nor people, Hundreds of Restaurants/Bars closed. Shopping centres nearly closed except supermarkets, pharmacies and take away food restaurants.

The timings of the supermarkets have been curtailed by an hour or two. Normal appointments for Medical consultation/assistance are not available. The public transport is at the minimum.

A distance is being maintained to enter in supermarkets etc. The queues are not much long, maybe the waiting time could be 10-15mins. in peak hours, and up to now there is no food shortage and everything is available except hand wash, alcohol, sanitizers and masks.

@ Street corners closed for business. 🚷

A few still occur though:

A shady character stands on a street corner at night. A haggard man
approaches him and whispers "You got it?". Looking furtively around,
the shady one says "You got the money, man?".

Haggard man pulls out a wad of bills: "75 bucks... and you should be
ashamed".

Shady one: "Yeah, yeah, things is tough all over. I'm down to my last
few scraps of toilet paper".

He grabs money and hands over a single bottle of hand sanitizer.

Meanwhile India's lockdown-

Useless True Saints who make people believe they are special. LoL

Solomon and An Ordinary Indian,

Most of these people belong to the watsapp university where it got viral that beating utensils will ward off the virus.

And see the intelligence of Indians in doing this nonsense- https://mobile.twitter.com/hariiyengaar/status/1241740766692757510

This Modi(who is a psychopath) has made this pandemic a publicity stunt instead of announcing an economic relief package.

If people really wanted to thank the doctors and service providers in controlling the virus, they should have obeyed to stay inside their homes and not had done this publicity disco music on the streets by forming large gatherings and beating utensils like idiots!

All the countries who have right wing governments or centrist governments are getting affected badly by this virus.

Countries with liberal governments are the least affected. I would say that countries with sensible and educated leaders are the least affected.

Seems like you people are a supporter of Modi, without common sense.

Solomon and An Ordinary Indian,

Most of the people in India mistook the clapping and beating of utensils to destroy the virus. See this-

To bad despite all your efforts to discredit the move by Modi, ofcourse only because of your Modi hatred induced blindness, the WHO hailed the Janata Curfew initiate. And ouch the support for Modi from the usual detractors and the Congress eco-system must have really hurt you. It shows.

So better luck next time on another issue maybe. You just wasting a lot of people's valuable time on this.

You may need to re-read what I wrote about True Saints. They don't promote any religion at all. Many are scientists. Some are Atheists. They are scrupulous devotees of reality, inner and outer. The two are the same, but our understanding is incomplete. It is a limitation of these biological machines that is inbuilt. We can experience the divine but not well enough to understand it at this level, so it remains subjective in terms of conceptual descriptions. True Saints are devoted to Truth, hence the name. And this is why they would never codify their spirituality into some human encasement.

And True Saints don't believe in miracles, or violating the laws of this creation. Quite the contrary, they help us adapt to them a little better. Their simple lives of devotion and pleasant work, friendship and kindness, charity and service are a lifestyle, not a religion.

Personally, I do believe in miracles. Since I can't see everything I don't know what actually caused what. So to me everything is a miracle. A moment's peace is a miracle.

It's snowing here in Boston and I am compelled by a wave of passion to sit in rapt and obedient attention to the glory of it for a while.....

An Ordinary Indian,

Hatred towards a mass murderer and a criminal is justifiable-

https://www.uscirf.gov/news-room/press-releases/uscirf-urges-denial-us-visa-gujarat-chief-minister-narendra-modi

And you tell that you don't let your dislike of Modi turn into hatred and blind you to the right he does. Mr., stop fooling others. Who likes the actions of a mass murderer?

So what should I do? Should I start worshipping the actions of criminals?

You can do blah-blah here but not in a court of law. Enough with your nonsense!

I challenge you to tell me a single good thing that Modi did for the country.

Countries with liberal governments are the least affected. I would say that countries with sensible and educated leaders are the least affected.

How moronic. Indeed you need to be ashamed not just an ashamed Indian but an ashamed earthling.

Thank you for letting all know how laughable your views are. Probably just a reflection of your thick headedness.

You say "Countries with educated and sensible leaders are least affected". You mean a few of those African nations - Libya, Western Sahara, Mali, South Sudan, Gabon, Botswana, Yemen in the Middle East, Tajikistan and Turkmenistan in Central Asia (pardon if I get the geography and regions wrong - for me it's a world with no manmade borders)

I keep saying India is doing suspiciously well. Then again, India has a history of doing well with SARS. A pandemic isn’t going to bring down India. I’m not sure what would... 🤔

Well look up India projections done by some experts based out your country.

I might have to ward off some tough competition though to get to that target. Competition from a completely unexpected quarter.

Will you wish me luck? I suspect I might need it vis a vis this competition.

People are dying. There’s panic everywhere and without jobs people won’t be able to clothe, house and feed their families. This isn’t funny. At all.

You shouldn’t take delight in this. This whole conversation is getting weird.

But what does a virus know?

You’re just being mean. Right now, life is shitty enough. Or maybe you’re bored. Either way, it’s not the corona virus that’s going to kill me. I sleep on average 12 hours a day and my immune system is permanently compromised. I’m supposed to start a new job next week but I honestly don’t think I’ll be able to physically. I may never get the chance to travel anywhere again and that’s about the only thing left that I really enjoy (besides sleeping).

So, why don’t you travel to Antarctica? You might like it there.

I’m beyond fatigued. And this pandemic isn’t helping anything. If these are the End of Days, I wish it would hurry up and be done with everything.
