    I’m cynical by nature. Is this virus a real problem? Yes, it is. Do people die from it? Yes, they do. However, I feel that the whole thing is being blown out of proportion. At some point, we’re going to have to strike a balance between the risks involved in going back to our daily routine, and tanking the economy.

    The constant drumbeat from the media that the sky is falling isn’t helping anything, either.

    Covid19 is a threat. I remain prudent, informed, aware, patient,calm and kind. Prepare for the worst ,hope for the best. I'll decide my course of action.

    I've been noticing that people are starting to crack and panic and worry are setting in. Reason I limit my news viewing to the basics. Freaking drama mongers.

    I'm guessing Bay Area, where there is no middle class. I couldn't buy my home today.

    Of course this is true if you spread any communicable disease. Flu, Shingles, Chicken Pox, E=coli, Tuberculosis.... Flu alone kills tens of millions of Americans every year. So my advice is to never go out....ever....

    I take George Carlins advice. I swim in raw sewage to strengthen my immune system. He's my mentor. He and Cosmo Kramer.

    Just for the sake of accuracy, flu kills tens of thousands of Americans not millions.

    I sort of follow that advice myself. Despite being called a chicken chit, I don't:
    1. go to large sporting events wherein the sponsors allow beer to be sold and chintz on hiring security;
    2. go to bars in the bad side of town which have bouncers posted at the door;
    3. go to feed the homeless on the streets surrounding US post office 90066;
    4. go stand in line outside the local national chain supermarket with a basket.

    I quit my gym years ago. As a result, I do not have the infections suffered by two brothers who swim 5 days a week in commercial gymnasiums.
