    We have a lockdown here justified with the alleged danger from Corona Virus. That means that I'm not/less economic active right now.

    I think the real ripple effect we may be feeling substantially later though.

    Who are building those 20,000 sqft. mansions in Idaho? I feel sorry for Idahoans as you'll get more white refugees within the US. It was only time that a disease will occur from China or down South of US border. People like us are rethinking new places to live to escape the metropolitan squalor and communicable diseases. Open borders have radically changed our culture.

    My state (Arizona) is going on "Stay at Home" starting tomorrow at 5:00 PM. The schools have been out for two weeks (and spring break the week before that) and the rest of the school year has been cancelled. I have two sons at home, 16 & 6, I'm working from home & me and the wife are starting to go crazy. The only thing to look forward to is going to Walmart or Target and not finding about a 1/3 of what is on the shopping list. At least gas is in plentiful supply.

    Rules that contradict

    We have been home since early March so I know the feeling to keep the kids entertained. The problem is there is little randomness of daily events. Our parks even have construction plastic around kiddie slides and bars. There is no proof that you can even contract the virus outside unless some person coughs on you or family. People who are sick should remain home and wear masks if they need to go out for crucial reasons. Years ago, infected people stayed home with posted sign and tape on the door warning of contagious disease; you just don't quarantine healthy individuals. People are also crowding into supermarkets and lines that don't make sense. It's obvious to close down schools, churches, theaters and indoor malls, but patio restaurants should be opened if there is 5-6 feet space.

    Winterland, there is indeed proof that the virus survives on inorganic surfaces for anywhere between several hours to several days. https://www.nih.gov/news-events/news...hours-surfaces

    Additionally, the issue in only quarantining those already showing symptoms is that the virus appears to have an incubation period of anywhere from 1–16 days. https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/32150748/
