Coronavirus photo thread

Well, why not. Would seem that the societal effects should be fertile, thought provoking ground. Not thinking about photos of sick people, but there is a lot of related material out there.

Didn’t post this in “Travel” section because, well, that’s “banned”.

What a great idea!

I was baffled by 'well, that’s “banned”'...what is banned, taking photographs at airports?

I went to Target late last night, and this is what's left of the toilet paper aisle. Taken with a Pixel 2, then went a little nuts on the editing sliders in Google Photos because things feel a bit nuts right now. There are paper towels left, because I guess everyone is too soft to wipe their butts with Bounty.

I can’t copy and paste Instagram photos directly to RFF, but here’s a link to a photo of security at Denver International Airport this afternoon...

Travel is banned, at least to and from certain countries:

When hoarding in preparation for sheltering in place, don't forget your best friend.



He didn't care that all the toilet paper was gone.

I have discovered that there are still plenty of steel wool and pot scourers left and have stocked up on those in lieu of toilet paper. You never know I may become desperate enough.

Seriously I do not quite understand what has panicked the herd into mass purchases of toot paper. I am sure if I get a bad case of the virus I will have other things on my mind than toilet paper.

Panic buying loads of toilet paper? Weird. But somewhere I got the idea that people intended to use the toilet paper to fashion make-shift filter-masks... If that's not it, then it's still weird considering the quantities acquired. Why, oh why?

Same in the UK. Is there a secret diarrhoea epidemic we haven't been told about?

No I think the answer lies elsewhere. Someone once told me "Peter if you have an average intelligence IQ of 100, just look around you and you will find that half the people you meet are less smart than you are."
I now officially believe him judging by all the mass hysteria over toilet paper we are seeing. In fact I would say more than half...............

In Italy soccer is very popular. I took this photo two weeks ago, prior to the total lock down. In that moment was only suggested to limitclose human contacts, and all social, sport, cultural events banned.

It's so strange to see the parking place in front of the local soccer club stadio empty on sunday morning.

The sign on the shops says: "dear clients, in order to give a contribution for the safety of everyone we decided to keep the shop closed. We thank you for understanding."

I visited Matsumoto Castle last Friday (March 6th) hoping to see inside the castle, but once again my plan was foiled. I visited last year during Golden Week (early May), but the queue to see inside was 3 hours long so we just took some snaps from the outside and headed home.

This time, however, the coronavirus foiled our plan.

There was a consolation prize though.. getting to see the Honmaru Garden for free (I didn't make it that far last time) AND with almost no people around.

I think it's preparation for staying in for a set time, imagine being quarantined and you're out of TP...

Maybe the fixation with toilet paper is in understanding the saying about events such as the pandemic: "this too shall pass".

Here in Baltimore, during any kind of snowfall, the running joke is to make sure you stock up on toliet paper and milk.

Does snow loosen your bowels??

This is the parking place of our main train station, where people commuting daily to Milan leave their cars. It is usually full of cars.

I took this photo a few days ago coming back home from the pharmacy where I had to buy my medecines. Since that day I stay home.

The signs says "closed for the health of everybody until new order" It was a very crowded place.

No photos - although my favorite tuna fish was out of stock - but things seem a little calmer today at the grocery store. Check-out lines were starting at the back of the store and taking 20-30 minutes to check-out.

The initial wave/freak-out stage has passed last night after all the cancellation announcements in the US and hopefully will not re-emerge after the 3pm State of Emergency announcement today.

Same here, though I did not get a picture. Beans, pasta, soup cans, tuna fish cans, toilet paper, paper towels, all completely gone today. Two days ago, fully stocked.
One thing I noticed which looked similar to your photo: shelves which 2 days ago were full of Dial bar soap, were now completely empty. Right next to that, the shelves with Dove bar soap were full and untouched. Make of that what you will.

And I thought this madness was limited to us here in Australia. Seems not. Humans are strange.

No photos, but I’ll get out later today and have a wander around… not that it appears there’ll much groceries to buy...

Yesterday, overnight, our local supermarket shelves were stripped bare of bread, pasta, rice, milk, bottled water, tinned vegetables, tinned meats, paracetamol, bleach, paper goods, cleaning sprays, etc etc.

Seems February’s Be Kind month has been followed by Screw Everybody Else month.

From Ocean State Job Lot (discount store) in Northeastern Vermont yesterday:



My back stairs after my wife and I each went to the store without telling the other. We purchased identical items, but one. She bought the horseradish.

My wife flew back here last night from a ski trip in France. Flight was hastily arranged due to some sudden uncertainty about a whole raft of issues, so was $1,800 one way.
She's self quarantining for two weeks at home, as advised. Trying to stay away from me, she is taking the bottom floor and bath and I get the upper. We'll see how long this lasts, lucky to have the housing option. I put a Keurig downstairs with some coffee, cups, silverware, plates and dishwashing liquid. The dog walks up and down so that's a vector of transmission as he is a bit kissy.
Cooked some scrambled eggs this morning and laid it at the top of the stairs and she came to get it. That's the plan. She may soon tire of eggs and cereal. Very Love-in-the-Time-of-Cholera-ish.

iPhone photo, apologies.
The whole thing might be a bit much, but her idea and she's a doctor, so any pooh-poohing will be forwarded to her.
