Lol my buddy just sent me videos of empty shelves and freezers from the grocery store.
Anyway came in here to say I think the transit systems staying open in the US is extremely irresponsible. Basketball has shut down arenas that house, what, maybe 20,000 people. 10x that amount (probably more) go through major train stations EVERY DAY with much closer human contact than arenas.
I understand Italy had a direct connection with Wuhan and thats why they shut down the country, but its going to be no different here or anywhere else if the world allows their transit systems to continue business as usual as I believe they are ground zero for spreading the virus along with hospitals and airports.
While the measures taken so far of canceling organized sports and large gatherings might seem drastic, I think its a drop in the bucket if you allow the continuous close human contact that occurs on Americas transits systems thousands of times every hour of every day.
Enough is enough. We need a minimum 2 week shut down akin to Italys or its only going to get worse. Actually its going to get worse anyway before it gets better but we can be doing a lot more to curb the severity
