    Just returned from LaGuardia airport

    I just got home from picking up my son at LaGuardia airport which is in Queens, NY. The borough of Queens has over 1,042 known cases of Coronavirus. Many people exiting the baggage claim were wearing masks, some had gloves also. And some had no protection. Even the men wearing the 'port authority' jackets had no protection.

    My son was the most covered up of anyone including his hair, face, hands, long sleeves. His flight stopped in Ft. Laurderdale and he said he didn't see a single person wearing a mask or trying to stay at least 6 feet away from anyone. One of the guards asked him 'what's all that?' referring to his mask and gloves. Those people and many others are the reason epidemics become pandemic.

    There's people coming into Ft. Lauderdale from all over the world and spring break people returning back to wherever they came from. Nobody cares, nobody is alarmed. These are the culprits that bring their virus to others, and those others die. This is why I am 100% certain that this virus is going to absolutely devastate this country, not only the economy, but it's going to take many more lives before it's under control.

    People are so ****ing stupid.

    Some people deny or challenge any threat or perceived threat to their past comfortable lifesyle. I understand. It can be hard to accept and you just hope the whole danger thing ahead of you is somehow either false or over-blown.
    I feel so much better now since I've completely given up all hope.

    What do you want people to do? Panic?

    If I had to fly into LGA, I'd be more worried about the landing - than the virus!

    There's a large area between precaution and panic.

    Or each other for that matter - gets hard to take them seriously after the "data" is compared to their dire predictions or when the recommendations are so different between sources
