I actually think the US will come out of this pandemic thing ok, or at least not as bad as someone might think given your dismal healthcare for the lower income people. One strength of the US system is that you have more ICU beds per capita than any other country.

This instance of pandemic is giving world governments an unprecedented opportunity to exercise politics of suppression via an exemplary advice of social distancing, etc. due to corona. There have been other instances, like this one during my childhood, which I don't remember. No schools were being closed, then. 

The media, concerted worldwide into more or less one voice with headlines being same all around the globe play their dirty role in distributing fear and terror into everyone's hearts. Citizens rights are being restricted on a global scale, and be it through states of national emergency or infectious disease acts, citizens rights are being infringed upon like never before. They do not want people to gather and like to root out any uprising before it even starts.

Tomorrow in Paris, the Yellow Vests are planning a bigger march, heavy police forces are presumptively sent in already (since large gatherings are forbidden). The National Guard is deployed in the state of NY, etc. - Police rights and surveillance are aggressively being extended all over, often silently 'behind the curtain', while corona fear is taking all the headlines...

To really fight a pandemic, it needs (undrained and unstrained) efficient public health systems, which are practically nowhere existing in the west. Instead of doing something, or anything about it, the opposite is what politicians seem to be aiming at. In my country, with hospitals and nursing homes heavily understaffed and stressed out long before this, the minister of health just lowered(!!!) the minimum staffing rules for hospitals to "help" cope the crisis, a week ago. Of course, most of them are private institutions. ~ The mantra of "helping the economy" fill their own pockets is still holding sway. Long live the oligarchs.

How long?

That's quite likely the issue. Some routes are getting pretty congested as people shift to working & playing from home. The NA <> Asia routes are quite likely particularly hard hit.

Shit is getting real when sheltering in place starts to affect RP.

Stay safe in there.

As misinformation spreads, 'snake oil salesmen' are profiting off anxiety over coronavirus, says reporter

Social Distancing: This is Not a Snow Day
What I can clearly say is that what we do, or don’t do, over the next week will have a massive impact on the local and perhaps national trajectory of coronavirus. We are only about 11 days behind Italy and generally on track to repeat what is unfortunately happening there and throughout much of the rest of Europe very soon.

hobbitt's employer shared the hurt several times over the years, keeping the talent employed but on lower wages. The lower paid employees had the smallest hurt, and corporate officers were on minimum wage. It got the company through several tough times.

You have a nice gig there. Sounds very social. Ish.
 
Talent, this is the operative word.  If our department were not so essential this would not be happening.   The less talented and important to the company will not be so fortunate just as the rest of the business world.  I know I am blessed, I also know that I am good at what I do and others that are not will not fare so well.  It is called capitalism.
