Not that long ago I was having a conversation with someone regarding all the goods and services that are now coming to us, at our homes, rather than we having to go to them.
Restaurants, grocery stores, any retain outlet. And we don't want for entertainment, even if we don't have a TV, because we can watch TV on our computers now.
It's as if we're being encouraged to seclude ourselves from one another. Stay home, life will come to you.

Now we have this virus outbreak. And the fear factor is causing people in Washington and elsewhere to stockpile supplies , planning to stay home and stay safe from the virus risk. And without realizing it as they go to those stores to shop they're at risk. If they have things delivered they're at risk too.
It's just interesting that the growing ability to stay home, seclude ones self from the world, and still survive, even work from home, go to college/university, has grown exponentially over these last few years. And now there's seemingly a reason for people to seclude themselves from the world; Corona virus, world wide.

Yeah it is ridiculous. Over here (Australia) they have run out of toilet paper and hand sanitizer as people are going crazy buying up. Some people are buying it and then posting it overseas. Sigh.......

Governments are pushing the envelope on freedoms we take for granted. Apparently California has granted health departments the power to suspend the Constitution and essentially force people into house arrest:

Police-Enforced Quarantine Hits California Neighborhood – Residents Ordered to Stay Inside Due to Coronavirus

Sacramento police ordered all residents in a California neighborhood to stay inside on Thursday due to a coronavirus death in the area.
The local health department issued a statement after the police presence in the area.
This is a frightening development.
WIBW reported:
Sacramento County Sheriff deputies and Rocklin Police, some wearing protective gloves, converged on a residential street Thursday as a sheriff’s helicopter circled overhead, ordering people to get inside.​
It was later learned that the first California coronavirus patient to die from the illness lived on this block.​
The Placer County Health Department issued a brief statement shortly after the police presence, stating: “Law enforcement partners are currently responding to enforce a health officer’s order. We cannot share any additional information to protect patient confidentiality.”​
The orders were given under sections of California Health and Safety Code that allows Placer Health to “enforce regulations requiring strict isolation, or quarantine if the action is necessary for the protection of the public health.”​

Funny you should post this. I was placing my usual order with Sam's Club today and when I got to toilet paper, my usual brand was not in stock online or in the local store. Over 50% of the toilet paper brands that they normally stock were out of stock.

It's California, and no less the state capital. I'll leave it at that.

Sorry to hear this. I really thought the Aussies would more sensible than us. (Britain).
The supermarkets have started to ration the amount of goods we can buy. I don't think anything like this has happened since the war years.

Everyone around the world seems to be panicking. Today I received a text from my local doctor clinic saying that if I have any flu like symptoms, please don't come to this clinic. Please go to a hospital that is equipped to deal with this.

A lady in her seventies who was suspected of having this virus (was still awaiting test results to confirm) attended a Beethoven concert. Her results have returned as positive and now everyone else who attended this concert is demanding she be charged.

At our local Sam's when you enter the greeter there informs you that shoppers are limited to two cases of water. That was three days ago. Today hubby needed to get his prescriptions, and the greeter said the case of water limit was 8. Nothing so far on toilet paper limits.

Should be interesting to see where we are after the November elections in this country.
I remember during the first of Trump's campaign, he would repeat each speech something to do with law and order. He'd change the rhetoric, but those keywords were always there. Law and order.
Then he stopped and it has rarely been said since.
When the media politicized this flu virus, you just knew something was up. Sure , the Democrats on the Hill are low, but when they use this as a reason to up their attack on Trump, there's something up. Now, after his speech this evening, the ball is in the court of the House. And of course Pelosi , Schumer, and the usual suspects have said Trump isn't doing enough about this virus. But after the speech tonight, we'll see what they do.

Nice move on his part.
