All the businesses here have ques and people cant seem to stop panic buying.
Lukeon that is what it was like here at first. Now people can see the results from around the world and the streets have become quiet
Oh yes. What gets me also is that normally when an epidemic of flu sweeps an area the advice is 'please stay home, please don't go to the doctor or medical centre unless your symptoms are severe, please don't spread infection.' When a lockdown is announced, what do you do? cram into the shops to stock up, because very few of us carry enough to get through a few weeks without anything more. No infection risk there eh? And when we do catch it, even though over 90% will survive it and most will get it fairly lightly, we're being told YOU GONNA DIE!!! You coughed!!! Get to the nearest testing facility immediately!!! Get to hospital!!! Which is a shame because we don't have enough facilities to cope with this new advice ... If laughter is the best medicine, I do wonder what important role panic plays in cures.
