I can assure everyone here that up in the USA right now (I'm in California) media coverage of the shortages is not exaggerating the situation.  Drove by Costco this morning at 8AM....they open at 9:30.  There were 250 people in line.  It's like that every morning.  Whole supermarket aisles completely cleared out.  Restaurants empty.  Service workers taking a big hit (I'm still going to restaurants and getting take-out to help support them). When I was at Costco the other day they had just put out bottled water and people were grabbing them like it was free money.  Do they really think their tap will run dry?

I am definitely NOT one to hoard.  We buy what we need but it can be tough to find, which makes you want to buy more because you're afraid it won't be there the next time you need it.  I'm convinced that if the media would not cover it the hoarding the situation would improve in short order.  The panic is irrational but it's there.  Please try to only buy what you reasonably need.

I would guess it's just a matter of time before it happens in Guaymas.

The only thing people really do need right now is Clorox wipes, soap, Lysol, etc., so I can (only sorta) understand those shortages.  Maybe paper towels if you're anal about cleaning, but you really don't need to worry about cleaning your own home unless someone there has the virus.  It's not like it's going to bust through the front door and contaminate your house.

Anyway, enough of my venting.  It's frustrating.  Be prepared, no need to panic, and I hate to say this, but there will probably be shortages down there soon as well.

If warehouses in the states run out, I doubt if Mexico gets new stock prior to closer destinations.

My sister, who I earlier mentioned likely HAS the coronavirus in Spain, just sent me this picture which couldn't more perfectly capture the mood here for the more paranoid in California/USA.  Enjoy.

being prepared "vs" panic hoarding


* most who are prepared are already well stocked, probably making a few purchases to "top things off" and are capable of taking care of themselves, even when the shelves are empty! 


* panic hoarders, have been caught with their pants down, and do not know or have the judgement of what do! they will be the dangerous ones, when everything runs out !! 
there are already videos circulating of 2 women fighting over a bundle of toilet paper! one has a shopping cart LOADED with bundles of toilet paper! 


here is a photo of what i bought this morning, no HOARDING just topping off!

This is REALLY bad.


There's probably no Costco hot dogs to be had, at this point.

You can still get your hot dogs! I feel for the service people. They will suffer the most with this panic. Having always worked from home, my life hasn't changed much. Everything is cancelled in Tucson as far as events, or any gatherings.

Everything is not cancelled in Tucson. There are several car-related events being held, including the national show I am chairing the last weekend of the month.

the attempt we are undergoing in the USA for social "physical" distancing in important to "flatten the curve"!
 the less people out, the less people contaminated.
 this will allow for a better control and prevent our health facilities and first responders from becoming over run!


we are a country by it's inception of "REBELS" , it will be difficult for some to follow the suggested rules!


much like having unprotected sex with a stranger, some will and some won't! 
in the end the one's who headed suggest advice will hopefully be better off than those who didn't!


selfishness has no place in today's outlook, be safe, have patience, look forward to a brighter future!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here is a link to the Mexican Ministry of Health daily updates. It has further links showing the number of confirmed cases including their locations and the number of suspected cases with each of their locations. It is in Spanish, but can be easily understood with just some basic Spanish knowledge.

So far, nothing in our area.

SBT, great link, thank you.
 reading, an alarming amount of the confirmed cases are coming from people who came in from Italy, Spain, and USA! 


this may correlate with the other thread "semana santa dates have been moved" and post, regarding students returning home from Europe for semana santa!
 hopefully there will be precautionary procedures in place. so these returning students and travelers can be properly quarantined in designated facilities!

So, people coming to San Carlos for Semana Santa and those already here. Two groups- old and young. This is early on in the game where not many people are infected in Sonora with crona virus. Young, non infected people gathered in a group pose no infections threat. In the unlikely event that there are a few who may be infectious there will be many non infectious once that will act as buffers. Meaning that in case anyone sneezes then chances are that those around that person will be able to fight of an infection if they got infected.
With so much information out there I am sure anyone showing symptoms will quickly be identified by the kids themselves and hopefully somewhat contained.
It is just a matter of time. Everyone in this world will eventually be exposed to this virus much like the many flu strains already that are here.
The governments are trying to slow this exposure so that those who end up being severely infected will have enough resources to look after them.
Most of the people attending Semana Santa will be able to fight the virus should they get infected. If they show symptoms then these will mostly be when they will be back at home. There is no guarantee that they would not have caught anything at home either.
Since there is no cure then identification of the virus does not change the outcome. So not to worry about test kits for everyone. Save the test kits for those vulnerable to getting severe symptoms so that early supportive treatment can begin.
Those who have concerns can very easily isolate themselves at home since the Semana Santa crowds are isolated to the beaches and the main road.
Generally speaking we need a trickle of people fighting it and becoming immune and hence slowing the spread. Almost like when vaccines are given but in this case it is an immunity acquired by direct exposure.
Identification of those who have fought this strain of the virus is valuable so that if needed these individuals can be frontline helpers in hospitals if needed.
Of course everyone has the right to be concerned about their health but is it any better when everyone in the restaurant or store is older and falls in the category of vulnerable to sever symptoms?
I say let the young crowds come and then disperse away like always.
For those who are concerned please locate to an area where there will be resources to look after you in case you need that care.
