While I don't want to get sick (and am uninsured for the first time in my life), I don't worry about it killing me. However, I don't think the government, businesses, and regular people are taking it seriously enough to prepare ahead of time if they don't want it to spread. Yes, part of that is that nobody likes an over-reactive government that shuts down travel and events because 20 people are sick on the West Coast. And travel bans didn't keep a girl I knew who was in China from returning here (although she went through a 21 day quarantine in China and a 14-day home quarantine in the US. But she got around the China flight ban by flying to Thailand first, which is a shaddy move that I would have expected the airlines and customs to have caught. (Delta had canceled her return flight and said May 1st was the earliest they would have flown). The irony is that in Tibet it is safer there than it is here in the US now. My question is when is it socially acceptable to start wearing full face respirators in public? Supposedly the virus hasn't infected anyone in this state yet, but only because it might be they haven't tested all of the people who are suspected of having it or who have come in contact with people that do have it. There are people who have been confirmed to have it in the next state over.
