    Tell us how things are in Italy. It is good to hear from people we "know".

    There were quite a few on the ship in Japan that were infected and felt nothing.

    Your people should have had groceries delivered by a service or a friend/family member

    Really doesn't matter how related to him. The point is that the people should have self-isolated and had groceries delivered.

    Think of what the economic damage is going to be if we don't stop this thing!

    Unfortunately, some economic models predict that the economic damage will be smaller if no action is taken, and the health system is left to crash. Many more people will die, but the immunity will spread as fast as the virus, as people getting it, but surviving, can start back they normal life quickly.
    Even more unfortunately, it seems that some governments are actively pursuing this line of "no action", placing economic wealth before human lifes: see here for example Boris Johnson defending this strategy:

    All Arabian Gulf countries are in lock down now, no travel between any of them, my OPEX for Q1 is going to be well within limits :D

    Fortunately we still have some reasonable diving around here otherwise I'd go crazy at weekends.
