There was already a rush on masks, but honestly it's one of the ones that make sense.




For the hard hit places there are restrictions on public gathering, so it may be trickier than normal to get food - but if they actually restrict to that point, they sort of have to give out rations.

People like to overreact to perceived threats, cue preppers making underground clean-bunkers

We need that global warming to kick in right about now, and make it summer.

History books in 20 years. "World global financial collapse caused by Chinese wet market". Also 20 years in the future in China, "you want live bat with your room temp fish?"

As for prep, maybe a sword? Seemed to work well in the walking dead. Never runs out of ammo...
