Of all things the junk food is getting panic horded: all pasta, sugar and flour have been sold, the cheap industrial food is finally gone and the shelves are empty. I was really surprised.
So actually the markets are booming like never before since 2008 and again the governments are throwing unlimited cash into companies like they always do with the same mantra, - "keeping working places". So, simply loan support, tax deferrals, short-time allowance is good for companies they're are getting healthy from Corona virus.. The reality is: They will bag the money and then file for bankruptcy - that's how it will come...
If you are healthy, there is no reason to lock yourself up at home. There is no reason to run to pharmacies and supermarkets. Leave breathing masks to the sick, only they need them. The speed at which a virus makes it from one end of the world to the other is part of our time. So we enjoy empty beaches at the river.
