    Thanks; you too!

    I'm just reading the latest news reports on this. Swedes are told not to travel abroad and to stay at home if we have anything similar to upper respiratory tract symptoms (I happen to have a cold so have had to stay at home for a few days).

    We're advised not to visit elderly relatives, and old people are told to stay at home. Many European countries are now closing their borders and are shutting down schools, universities and work places, but Sweden is not at the moment (or yet, perhaps). We follow the news virtually hour by hour, and since countries are handling the situation so differently (our neighbours Denmnark and Norway have closed their borders and are closing down schools; I just read Germany is closing borders too), there is a lot of discussion here whether it's right to close down or whether it is in fact necessary to obtain some kind of herd immunity. Politicians in Sweden traditionally make decisions regarding issues like this based on experts (in this case the Swedish national agency for public health) whereas in other countries, decisions are more political. I have a high trust in scholarly expertise but it does feel a bit odd that countries around us are shutting down but not we.

    Stay safe, everyone.

    The entire milk section was empty in our local supermarket except for just a couple of small cartons. Why milk? You can't really freeze it.

    I know it’s ridiculously out of hands now. Was talking to my mom as in Quebec they closed all schools, no visitors allowed in any hospitals n nursing homes/residential’s even all gyms are closed. She just had a knee replacement so she’s not going anywhere but she too said it’s exaggerated. I cracked up when she said, “we’re not in the 40’s where we have no food or toilet paper.” What bothers me more is people freaking out to buy everything insight. You have families living paycheck to paycheck. They will need supplies too but won’t be able to buy. There is absolutely no reason to be freaking out like so. I too can’t even do any demos of my product in any store chain. I smell political strategy here. Freak out the people so they can spend more. Why aren’t stores like Costco or any stores put a limit on items n why is things more expensive now? My aunt went to the pharmacy to buy polysporin for an earache. None on the shelf she said. She went to ask other side of the counter n lady said we only have 2 left. My aunt said I need one I’m 80yrs old n have a bit of an earache. Get this, lady said it will be MORE expensive!!! My aunt didn’t care n still bought it at 2x the price! Hell I would of reported that. It’s illegal. She gets her pills there and didn’t want to stir any issues . People need to use commonsense. Like other flu’s kills way more so wash your hands more often.

    @1Chumly, yes you can freeze milk.

    Complete madness here in TN... I actually saw this coming about a week & 1/2 ago at our local Sam's. People were loading up on TP, paper towels, hand sanitizer and Lysol (one lady had 20 bottles of Lysol in her cart!!!). I bought just one case of the necessities and NOT because of the virus, because we were out!!! Lol Kids are out of school for 2 weeks as of now, my grandson is here because it is his spring break... all of his family work in the hospitals, so it's just as well. Ray's exercise in Romania was postponed so he's home...

    I'm disgusted how people are hoarding basic necessities, and causing others to scramble for basic needs. The media is causing pandemonium, and people are buying into it!!! Lily & I are headed to a walk-in clinic today... we have been dealing w/sinus & allergy crap for 2 weeks now, and I'm afraid we both might have strep!!! Shoot me NOW!!!

    I have been offering items to our neighbors that have been unable to find baby wipes, hand sanitizer or just basic TP!!! I'm NOT afraid of this damn virus wiping us out... I'm afraid we will do that to each other if this continues

    Itís definitely ridiculous the amount of food and products that people are stockpiling. I have TP but eventually Iíll need more. I couldnít even get red lentils yesterday which I need for a dinner this week! But unfortunately this is real. This is not the flu. Yes, the flu has killed more people but in such a short time period? A 60 year old woman at a local law firm died from Covid-19 within two days of feeling sick. The only way to start containing and stop spreading it is for places to shut down and for people to stop going out! People can have it and not show any symptoms and are then just spreading it. Iím not afraid of me getting it but I sure as hell donít want to be a carrier for it and then spread it to someone who dies from it because I didnít keep my distance.
