I just saw one of those newspaper headlines that are designed to induce fear in humans, to exploit it for commercial purposes. I learned about that recently from Margo Aaron at That Seems Important, and now she is one of my heroes.
So I thought I would mention this: that in our area, our local county hospital is seriously on top of this. The infection control team has been meeting and making smart plans for eventualities, they seem to have enough PPE for current needs and for foreseeable future ones, they have procedures in place to handle current cases and plans for handling more if they show up, and they are actively caring for the human side of this unprecedented healthcare situation.
This is what adults who are good at their jobs do. They do them.
[And on a personal note, I am very proud of my partner, who is one of those competent adults.]
