I am at about a 7 now. Started out not concerned, but that changed real fast

Worried about the kids ( one in the Navy at a base they are going to quarantine people in, and one in college with lots of international student). Worried about getting sick and not being able to take care of our dogs and livestock

Debating on the appropriate point in time to try to stop son from going to college or anywhere else.

Having a perfect bug out location and all the supplies we need doesn't seem to be helping us much in this case. As long as you have kids in school, you are sort of screwed

You know the old saying the government is looking for a crisis to usurp more power. This is the sort of thing they are looking for. I think you have hit the nail on the head with that statement.

Far too many in our society today with their hand out waiting for Uncle Sugar to protect/provide for them. Sacrificing freedom for temporary security.

A solid 4 for me. Really concerned but am watching carefully what happens over the next couple of weeks. Still stocking up on supplies but we would be good for a bit if things went hot right now. I am fairly convinced that there is nothing my family can do it to keep us from getting it although we will/are certainly trying not to. But with 2 teens in school and a trucker husband who is constantly in and out of areas already confirmed, by the time we know one of us has it, itll be too late for the rest of us.

Quarantining in the early stages just isn't possible for us.

So I've moved onto stocking supplies to treat the symptoms of it and quarantine as opposed to prevention supplies.

We're less than 30 miles from one of the newly listed bases. They get a load of passengers, I'll move to a 5.

I'm not that far from you.... in fact you passed thru Burleson the other day....15 mins away from me LOL.

Im watching. I deliver Fedex...if I'm going to get it I am willing to bet $$ it will be from there..anywhere along the chain those packages could possibly get infected.

My hubby is also a truck driver, but now local delivering calcium and lime...doesn't deal with alot of people but has health issues.

I've been a school bus driver... I've seen how sickness plows thru the kids....and every one else. If the CC is going to play stupid and not test...there's is where our down fall will be....

I recommend minimum of 60 days of food/water for worst case. Over 60, would mean big time **** hit the fan.

4 - 5

My biggest concern is that it is easily transmissible and has a long illness cycle.


I've acquired items like N95 masks, respirator and P100 cartridges. Already have food stuffs. Already limit social interaction

I am not worried........I am much more likely to die from a Grizzly Bear mauling. I do wish they would stay out of my yard, and my outhouse.

Zero for me, I got stuff, I got training, and I'm not very attached to living.

6 form the country. It'll be "interestimg", but we will survive.

8 for some.friends and family. Some of them don't have the right training/background/minset

I’m still waiting to see if it jumps out of quarantine. If that happens.. well, I will be staying home and tending my garden.

I did get some more “stuff” because their factories aren’t running. I think that will certainly cause trouble down the road.

Virus itself? 3

Economic impact of the panic and disruption to supply chains? 6

Got what I need to wait it out though, and I can work from home if need be.

About a level 3, until more is known.

Our rural home can do 90 days of strict isolation.
Our isolated relatively defensible / sustainable off-grid BOL can handle 3 years of the same.

Even so, if this goes crazy bad, family & BOL group members coming to us may bring it in.

So, besides trying to keep it OUT, stocking up on every possible medication & medical eqt to survive it.

I am feeble/elderly, with a bad heart & lungs.

If it gets to us, it will probably kill me, no matter what.

Seems to me, one single WuFlu contagious person visiting any big USA event with a lot of people can unknowingly pass it along to a bunch of other attendees, then when they go back to where they came from all over the USA, they infect others & this gets FAR worse fast & furious, in a semi-slow motion sort of way.

Mine was local for a while. Mainly Dallas dry van. He just went OTR again about a month ago.

And yeah, I have zero faith in the school district here. Zero.

Solid 3 for us. We are both retired and living in a remote rural location full time now. We are topping off supplies over the next day or two. We could easily go for weeks without leaving our house.

Solid 6 for the country, mostly due to economic concerns, but also because I suspect the virus has already jumped quarantine, whether or not that's been yet made apparent and/or whether TPTB will admit it.

Right here is where I admit that I know nothing about the individual 12 cases on the CONUS but I know that each of those individuals did not manifest themselves out of thin air directly into negative pressure isolation rooms in the hospital.

Other people were exposed, and with an R0 of 2 to 4 (and who yet knows if that's accurate? right now the number of 'new cases' in China could very well be a product of their ceiling on available testing resources rather than a leveling off of transmission) *somebody else* on the CONUS contracted that virus.

We just haven't heard about it yet, for one reason or another.

That being said, most places in the U.S. have fairly robust health care/public health systems and fairly good nutrition compared to many other places in the world. This is just my humble opinion, but I expect that the U.S. will be blessed enough to do ok enough with this virus overall. My apologies to those who contract it, who struggle with it, and to their families. I do not mean to make light of anyone's suffering.

Solid 8 for big swaths of the rest of the world, where populations are much more dense, and where public health and hygiene, and perhaps nutrition and immunity are challenges.

Solid 9 for China, but that's obvious, I guess.

I'm no expert. These speculations are so much SWAG.

Also I should add that, in between my own two ears, the threat level increases exponentially as we go up the scale. It's a bigger jump from 6 to 9 than it is from 3 to 6, in between my ears anyway, because of the way calamities tend to snowball.
