Remember that first Survival course you took?
What was the first think you were taught?

Stay Calm, Don't Panic

Then it was something like Think and asses the situation.


So the last news I remember was my State had 7 infections diagnosed. That's fewer than all the people on this half block. I believe the largest number reports of infections in the USA was 125. But for the sake of argument lets triple that, 375. That is close to the number that lives on this whole street

So the odds of you getting the Covid 19 virus would require a Block Party where everyone attended. And remember China is thousands of miles away. As well as Korea and Italy.


There is nothing wrong with being prepared,washing your hands properly with soap and water, cancelling the Democratic convention, the St Pats day parade or the Marathon, those are all good Preventive ideas.
Just don't get carried away with worry.
