Sounds like your mum has her priorities right.

I can understand that Mormon thing about being prepared for the apocalypse although I once had a neighbour who burned their house down because of all the fuel stashed in the garage. I don't feel right without an extra month of meds on hand.

Yup, I'm shallow that way.
 

I placed an order for equipment I might need for work just in case the supply chain gets messed up. Been following posts elsewhere from an expat in China. Interesting that they are starting to see more shops open and more people on the street. It appears to me that at some point, people will get back to their lives just because it is impossible not to, even if the risk hasn't changed.
 
I've read that in some areas where activity is slowly returning it's not so much that the risk hasn't changed as it is the risk assessment has changed.  Maybe the risks weren't as severe as they first thought but they needed to step away and cease public activities until it could be sussed out. 

 
That's a good point. One  thing the governments should do is explain to people that it is proper to act quickly and severely then to back off as more information comes in. I'm afraid people will think "they got it wrong" and then blame the authorities and be less likely to listen next time.

head scientist at migal said it was blind luck that they have been researching a similar cv pathway

i think it was this

Israeli scientists: 'In a few weeks, we will have coronavirus vaccine'

Once the vaccine is developed, it will take at least 90 days to complete the regulatory process and potentially more to enter the marketplace.


edit: the speed at which some of the biotech companies are building products to combat this is pretty amazing suspicious

You’re Likely to Get the Coronavirus
Most cases are not life-threatening, which is also what makes the virus a historic challenge to contain.

U.S. Health Workers Responding to Coronavirus Lacked Training and Protective Gear

Anyone who thought "electing Trump won't kill anyone" are very close to being wrong.  The administration overrode the CDC's explicit instructions not to bring Americans home from Japan...and we now have the virus mysteriously appearing in someone without known contact linkage within 10 miles of the AFBase where the cruise line folks are in quarantine.

Worldwide flu typically kills 290,000 to 600,000 annually. COVID-19 is just getting warmed up but some back-of-the-envelope math I did last night (assuming some wildly unpredictable numbers but taking the most conservative of each) says it is likely to double that.

Yeah, it's nothing to sneeze at. Get it? Flu? Sneeze? See what I did there?

Apparently the Spanish Flu (1918) killed somewhere upwards of 50 million, with some estimates as high as 100 million. Point of origin is still disputed, but 'Spanish' is a misnomer regardless. What is NOT disputed is the flu's spread was aided by secrecy imposed due the war. Woodrow Wilson has been singled out for his iron-fisted control of the media and its effect on the spread of the virus. What goes around...

  Yes, I think most of the nations engaged in WWI censored reports about victims of the 1918 flu in their countries (to keep up "morale" or some such).  Spain was not at war and reported their cases, so I guess people just attached their name to it.
