This isn't a joke, there will likely be shortages of some stuff, namely TP and facemasks. Its already in Cali and Utah got its first case in salt lake today (not on the news yet, but from friend who works at IHC)
Stock up on food, TP, that kind of thing. Kind of bummed that this will likely be in full swing when I want to be at squaw for winter wondergrass but whatever.
As of now, death rates are about 2% but much of this is from the chinese, and testing has been wack everywhere to say the least since it has a 2 week incubation period. Young healthy people aren't as likely to die from it, but it has happened so best to try not to catch it. It gets transmitted by air, and touch, so its best to stay away from large gatherings of people. I'm throwing this together very quickly, so feel free to add anything you like.
