Last 2 days have been... annoying for me. Not because of the quarantine but because of the over-reaction of some people, especially the ones close to me. There is no other topic besides coronavirus in my family right now and I hear 10 times every day that I should wash my hands for 20 seconds and absolutely not go out anywhere, even to a local store. I was supposed to meet with 5 of my friends at my friend's house tomorrow but when my family heard it I was basically begged no to go. I think that's a bit too much. We have 60 cases in Poland, it's not like a plague waiting around every corner to kill us and it's not the end of humanity. Sure, we should be careful to not let it spread fast but let's stay normal. I'm already starting to miss normality.

So I just hope you're right and the stuff I read and read is just a worst case scenario...
To be fair I read June as a best case scenario from a Chinese medical specialist. But I think we will be back to relative normality before we are completely free of the virus.

Countries are starting to implement important measures, everyone is becoming aware, and we will have rising temperatures. I am confident it will be much better in a few months’ time.

I agree with you.

I believe this will happen once temperatures start rise up to 24-35°C and I don't think we all are just going to sit all day in our home and backyards until this is over.
My father should have traveled to Zagreb on Monday, and work there but the job is canceled.

Today it was announced that all schools and universities are closed from Monday. No classes except online for elementary and high schools.

Kids in kindergarten same case unless both parents work and nobody can take care of them.

In the US, schools, universities, churches are closed, all the sports are on hold or canceled and large social gatherings are prohibited (as low as 100 in some states). In my state, we grew from one case to 13 in just a couple days with the health department saying there are probably 100,000 people already infected in the state. Guys, its everywhere. Please stay healthy as best you can.
Stay well brothers and sisters in this time of world peril.
No matter who or where you are, peace be with you.

It's been an interesting experience over here to say the least. I won't claim to be the most well-informed, but I have been paying attention to the situation (or at least keeping a close eye) for longer than most around here, it seems. Nobody really paid it much mind until about Wednesday, then everything just kind of went crazy. In my state, for example, we have a population of well over 10,000,000 but only less than 50 confirmed cases as of yet. Of course the actual number is probably much higher, but it's been pretty wild to watch.
Even my little town - it is fairly isolated, not really on major trade routes nor a direct connect by train, bus, etc to bigger cities - zero cases yet, but we are definitely on edge.
Everyone has been hoarding bathroom tissue, that's been the biggest thing so far. Pretty odd to see. As it would be, we were running low, so I went out to Sam's Club (big membership/warehouse store like Costco if you're not familiar.) to get a pack. Every single cart I saw had at least one package of TP going out, I talked to one of the employees and said they sold 10 pallets full in just five minutes. They sold today alone two FULL semi trailers full of toilet paper. My town isn't even that big and it's going mental over here.
As it stands, all the schools have been shut down, as well as casinos and pretty much any sporting event/gathering of more than 300 people or so. I work IT at a local university and we - like everyone else - will be moving to online-only classes for at least the next few weeks. I also play guitar or bass fairly often for our church, and even there we will not be meeting this weekend, just video taping a sermon for others to listen to from their homes.

That being said, it does seem a little bit crazy at the moment, but if it works well, then of course it will be worth it. The feeling I get is that over here in the states (and many other countries) is that we are really just now at the beginning of this whole thing. The scary thing I have been hearing many say is that they believe the States right now are entering into where Italy was at about a week ago, which of course has just exploded in a bad way.

All that to say I still must admit I am feeling fairly fortunate at the moment. I know it is certainly a lot worse for many people. Things don't feel too scary just yet and I'm lucky to have a job where I can still work with reasonable safety (and job security). Like above, I do think it seems like we're closer to the beginning of things than the end and perhaps this will be the 'new normal' for the foreseeable future, but I do think it's the right reaction for the time being, anyways. Anyways, just a small update from what seems like (at the moment) a relatively safe position in the US. Stay safe out there, everyone.

First 2 cases in my hometown. In the end we aren't spared despite being quite empty in Slavonia after last 7-8 years.

Thank God I did everything what I had to do at dentist and hospital 5 weeks ago at plastic surgery.

But my mom has a lot of medical examinations to make and I don't know what's going to happen on Monday and Tuesday when she has appointments. She can't go there since her immunity is far for being great for a 54 year old woman.

Waiting lists are horrible in Croatia and now it may everything fall down.

The same here ... for once the topic is not Politics or football or shopping.
It is this virus

Five new cases in Malta.
All came back from abroad.

The lockdown will only come into force if the virus will be transmitted between locals.

Sorry but again had we stopped all planes we would have no cases.

One of the ones that tested positive went to Univ with symptoms.

So hell will break lose and lockdown will soon come into force

Malta is, without a doubt, one of the most out of control countries out there, no matter how much we blame foreigners.

Our percentage of the population that has been infected OFFICIALLY puts us in the top 20, maybe even top 10 in the world. I gave up on calculating after the first 7.
Our population density is one of the highest in the world.
The average it takes to double the number of cases is 6.2 days. In Malta, in around the same time, our cases have doubled 2.5 times, from 3 to 18. Our exponential increase seems much higher than most other places.

And yet one of our new cases is Russian. So where exactly did he get infected from, Malta or Russia (which has done exactly that)?

I believe he did not come directly from Russia. Not sure though

Could be, the article I saw only said Russia. There are flights to/from Russia but I don’t know if that’s how he came back.
