As they say, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”

While I don’t believe there’s any reason we should be hoarding toilet paper and the like, I also believe taking reasonable precautions is better for everyone in long term.

THIS is why things are being cancelled due to #COVID19 in one perfect picture. It is NOT because people are getting hysterical or because they believe the virus is so deadly they are panicking. It is because we only have so much capacity to deal with lot of very sick people. If we can delay the spread by keeping people away from each other, we have a chance to help more people effectively and not overwhelm hospitals and infrastructure. There are only so many nurses, doctors, hospital beds and pieces of equipment to help people that may eventually get virus related pneumonia.

PLEASE SHARE so that people understand this is public health strategy by the CDC, not mass hysteria or over reaction.

AND, keep washing your hands because the soap will kill the virus better than anything else!
