Let's not forget EARTHQUAKES.

We seem to be living in a seismically unstable era, with more than the average number of volcanic eruptions and severe earthquakes. The entire West Coast is way overdue for its bicentennial megathrust event, which is likely to trigger the San Andreas fault to release its own built-up stresses.

And if we're particularly unlucky, all that shaking may just tickle the New Madrid fault into action and break our oil pipeline infrastructure throughout the Midwest, spilling millions of gallons of oil into crucial watersheds.

Don't know is the US would do much. We are too dependent on China. Look at PPE order for virus...90%+ from China. We could not survive without them, at least in our current standard of life.

slackercruster Chronic the Hashhog;20206798]First, terrorist attacks against truckers....who and why?

Second, next that causes food shortage.

Third, martial law at the local level. Civil unrest due to food shortage.

Fourth, cyber attack, net down.

Fifth, opec and russia get to shootin. Oil issue...I'd pay $$ to see that!

Timed properly for coming winter rolling blackouts and people freezing.

After all that feds nationalize every critical businesses and we are now soviets....don't agree, but maybe somewhat.

They need to bring in some Chinese or Cubans for med care.

...and that is no joke.

Just never know. Remember back pre-virus. People bitching left and right.

They didn't appreciate it. Now they wish they could just go back to the 'good old days'...huh.

arleigh We just had a 4.2 earth quake in Anza california a few miles from my home. and it kept shaking for a while.
So things can get worse, mostly though if one is unprepared.

Ready?mom My fear is that the virus leaves serious long-lasting effects on people’s bodies that will take a while to become obvious. We already know that the economic effects will last a long time. I’m afraid that our health system will take as long or longer to recover.

Here are the very worst case numbers it seems >

"Toner's simulation of a hypothetical deadly coronavirus pandemic suggested that after six months, nearly every country in the world would have cases of the virus. Within 18 months, 65 million people could die."

What could make it worse? L O N G E R Quarantine and RE-Infection

Oh wait, that's going on right now. They just locked 640,000 people BACK DOWN.

Trump has diarrhea of the month. He needs to stick to reading a written speech otherwise he sounds mental.

The problem is that there is not really a quarantine going on in the US. Every state is doing their own thing, enforcing social distancing and business closures differently, and all the while there is virtually zero real restriction on the ability of people to move from state to state - spreading the virus unchecked. On top of that, the level of compliance people are adhering to varies dramatically all over the country.

bunkerbuster The really SAD thing is, from what my family members tell me, those that are still making grocery & supply store runs is:

98% of sheeple they saw out & about are not wearing PPE & only a few are practicing decent social distancing.

Given that fact, the coronavirus is going to continue to spread exponentially.

Forest Gump's "Stupid is as stupid does" sure holds true here.

I and family members have been practicing stringent isolation & will continue for 90+ days. Any making a supply run wear good PPE & practices strict decontamination procedures returning home.

1. The virus mutates and gets much more deadly.
2. We will not find a vaccine during the next xx years
3. Economic collapse
4. The virus will rush through the 3rd world because they simply can not afford a lockdown and may argue, that they don't have so many old people anyway. In such a situation global supply of several goods will get problematic. Travel bans could be active for 2 years.
5. A 2nd pandemic arrives on top of this one. This can happen ANYTIME, why not now?
6. Everything else that might happen, like asteroid impact, supervulcanoe eruption, natural disasters, large and long lasting blackout, etc...
7. War
8. The virus spreads again in China --> no masks for the Western world.


My prediction is, that we will be back to mostly normal in 3-4 months over here.

We probably will wear masks when in contact with many people and large events will not take place, like filled sports arenas, large concerts, etc...
But economy will recover quickly, maybe with some exceptions like tourism. For our export nation much also depends on how other nations will recover.

For the individual there is the social security net that did work very well in the 2009 crises.

I hope that house prices will go down significantly (because imho we have a price bubble there) , but I doubt so. If prices fall significantly I may buy. I missed that opportunity in 2009.

Besides running zombies, how can the Coronavirus situation get worse?

I feel the absolute worst thing that can happen right now is a breakdown in the food supply chain. Hopefully, the millions of people who are being laid off will be able to sign up for food stamps, but that requires food to be in the stores.

Second worse thing is for Coronavirus to turn into a slow burn, as in very slow burn. Rather than the infection traveling through groups so fast it burns itself out, it slowly, very slowly works its way through.

Third worse thing, it continues to mutate so we never find a vaccine or treatment. People who were infected once can be reinfected.

Fourth, damage to the economy is so bad it takes years, maybe even a decade to recover.
It will get worse when after 2 months of quarantine, the virus is still spreading like crazy. Then people are going to start being really ****ed and just ignoring quarantine more than they already are. There will be an explosion of cases and then massive numbers of deaths.

I didn't spend too many brain cells on this until we decided to pull a Carrier out of commission. We have 11, so unexpectedly removing a couple compromises our ability to project power.

And this damn virus is just getting started.

Can I agree with this post one million times?

China cuts off the sale of pharmaceuticals and PPE. Or sells known bad pharmaceuticals and PPE. Or taints imported medical supplies even more knowing it's that or nothing. Or dumps the dollar.

State and local governments fight against the Trump Administration in the administering of aid and bad mouth current efforts.
Especially since Covid-19 has naturally and not surprisingly gotten a firm foothold in our military and police.
