How much has Fearbola cost us?

I've read of large conferences being cancelled. I've read of flights delayed, schools closed, people calling in sick, and even of a scholarship not being awarded to a recipient all due to the out of control panic.

I myself have now sat through 10 hours of meetings about it in the last 7 days, with 8 to 10 in attendance. We've spent thousands on PPE's and additional supplies.

If we (the USA) were to total the lost time, wages, and overall expenditures over one of the rarest and low risk diseases in the western hemisphere, what would that expense be?

Not even close to what the bogus War on Terror since 9/11 and all that fear mongering has cost us in money and freedom.

If you succumb to fear then the viruses have won.
