No I think he means how the media's bias against Trump is fanning hysteria.

I work for a Fortune 500 Medical Device company. The corporation sent everyone home until April if they can work remotely. There is a skeleton crew at the office. Manufacturing is still producing at full capacity. 

The biggest messaging that we are getting is that the healthcare system can't handle all the cases hitting at once, but it can handle the virus spreading slowly. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, so there is a unified effort to nip it in the bud. Listen to the epidemiologist, not the news anchors.

Also, it's not just elderly that are dying. A lot of the deaths are overweight men 40 to 60, especially smokers. That should resonate around here. 

Anyways, I'm packing my truck to go shed hunting with the new dog. I'm all for working remotely and doing my part.

I’m a realtor and the selling market is VERY hot right now. Most properties i look at are getting multiple above asking offers in the first couple of days! Which sucks, because I’m also looking to buy right now and the inventory is crazy low! I wouldn’t let it stop you from buying right now. 

 That's one good thing for me! My house should be on the market within the next 10 to 14 days! Painters are there right now, new carpet coming on Monday!

Meanwhile, China seems to be stabilizing:

There is a “semblance that production capability is actually now coming back to the Chinese economy,” Tay said, citing a decline in the number of reported infections in the country.

That will likely make the Chinese economy “the first in the world” to get back on track, he told CNBC’s “Squawk Box” on Tuesday.

The US is a few weeks behind in regards to this virus, but I suspect we’ll see the same results by April. When you look at the actual numbers rather than listen to media, it puts things in perspective. 
 

Just for clarification, I’m not downplaying what’s going on here. My beef is with the way the media is handling it. Not only is it dangerous, but irresponsible. It’s creating undo hardship and panic simply out of spite.

Its crazy, we missed out on 2 houses already. 

I too wonder what effect it Will have on the overall economy and housing market.  With the economy already being effected and now travel related people getting less work, disneyland shutting down etc etc it will effect people's income. When that happens bills and mortgsges dont get paid. Could potentially cause a domino effect like the last recession we had.  I basically flip homes for the banks to put back on the market so I'm a little nervous what effect it Will have on my household.

I went to Safeway to get some milk  and beer, walking around it was crazy.  Chip aisle was getting picked over, pasta and rice almost gone.  The frozen pizza where getting low.  Water was going out faster than people coming in.

During my checkout, they said the plastics bags for bagging groceries were not shipped from warehouse, but i think it is the rush. I overheard the manager say someone stole the toilet paper out of the bathroom.  They were moving the water from outside, to inside, so nobody would steal it.

I am making a mad rush to Costco for some beer, vodka and some rotisserie chicken, oh and maybe a hot dog and coke for dinner. Even with Dog Haus and Wienerschnitzel, still cant pass up the Costco dog.
