I think it's an insane overreaction.


Every non-doctor seems to think so

University administrators aren't doctors. They are only thinking about liability.

The world is literally ending here in New York City. The Newark immigration court was evacuated for Coronavirus. We have a few employees at the firm in self-quarantine as a result

i've never seen the subways so empty

i thought people were going to start jumping out of the windows in Fi-Di on Monday, after watching the Dow Jones dive

There are CDC warning posters plastered everywhere.

If i have a face mask on while walking to 26 Federal Plaza, even the homeless will cross the street to avoid me!

Samonuh, this is scary times we live in! Do not take it too lightly!

The subway stop has loudspeakers and scrolling text that reminds you to wash your hands

"KEEP NEW YORK HEALTHY! AVOID PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION. USE SOAP AND WATER TO WASH YOU HANDS!" it says on loudspeaker over and over again, like a dystopian movie

Well I'll be roadtripping down South next week. Hopefully De Blasio doesn't quarantine NYC before I leave lol.

I wouldn't worry too much. The virus has already slowed down in South Korea.


i will do my best! Poor Samonuh though!!

I've been wanting to hang out Moony, by the way, but maybe this month wouldn't be the best time lmao.



slice of life has happened with many



To be fair, the overreaction is partly, if not mostly fueled by the general incompetence of the current administration and their seeming prioritization of optics. So ... this panic is, in part, a matter of lack of faith that the institutions that are supposed to handling this stuff actually can, considering how gutted they ended up in recent years. Plus, in Asia, they actually have the capability to do what's neccessary to contain and mitigate the situation and that's why you're seeing it start to slow down there.

So, the tl;dr of it is that Americans are panicking especially because we don't have much faith in our healthcare institutions anymore.

i'm sorry to hear that. my university has told us that if in the event of a campus closure, that we would have to participate online through their online group stuff

will your classes do the same? or is it all just shut down for the time being?

>hugs and kajis <3

i'm sorry to hear that things are so rough in New York right now :(( it must be really unnerving for you

i am curious moony, and please let me know if i'm out of line. but given that you are asian, have you received any sort of discrimination during this whole thing?

given that most people don't have paid sick leave, there are a lot that can't afford to not work, so instead of being able to stay home and self-quarantine, a lot of people will hide their illness and work anyways, which is easy to do when the majority of cases are mild in nature

>hugs and kajis <3


Yea, all classes will be online.


File: 1583882588415.png (110.65 KB, 352x318, 176:159, everything is wonderful ya….png) ImgOps Google

Oh sure, but it's not so bad. Most of us Asians, i would say, understand why people feel the ways they do. Especially the Chinese, who have seen the devastation back in the Mainland

today on the subway, i got a seat, and despite standing room only, nobody sat next to me. And that's okay. We must all look out for each other in these hard times. i do not mind it, and i can understand the reasoning.

Yes :c not best time. Maybe when this is done i can take you to eat at someplace fun c:


Dang sorry to hear buddy. That sucks.


File: 1583882924635.png (88.39 KB, 400x600, 2:3, 1571291888571.png) ImgOps Google

well that's good then, so you aren't completely SoL, even if it's not ideal

given that a couple of my courses require renting equipment from media services regularly, i have no idea how that will translate to an online course

i guess you can enjoy not having to wear pants to class now :PP

i'm glad you have such good spirits about this, even though it's sad to hear you've been treated poorly because of that. My statistics teacher is from Beijing, and as such keeps up with news from china and from the US, and it sucks to hear about people being descriminated or attacked because of something they can't control.

please be careful my friend!


>How it will translate to online courses

Good goddang question.

i mean, i guess we could do an "Unfriended" thing where we make a horror movie in discord or skype or whatever. but that is rather unlikely :PP

>hugs and kajis <3

how are you fairing amongst all this corona virus stuff, esh?


And difficult to pull off. FOr all the problems with the film, I do think it did the real time aspect well.

I'm not quite as worried as some people apparently REALLY want me to be  . I've been feeling alright and just doing my thing editing some videos (new one in a week) and doing an art stream today. So the usual, really.


Yes, let's please hang out when this has all blown over. I haven't seen you in so long!


File: 1583883648262.png (233.78 KB, 1000x1000, 1:1, 9ybr856gj2121.png) ImgOps Google

yeah, it wasn't perfect by any stretch, but man did i appreciate and respect it ^^

that's good, panic is amongst the worst things to do, especially if it's not warranted. I'm only worried because the majority of my income comes from senior centers, so if they close down, i'm a bit hosed :PP

sounds like you had a lovely day nonetheless ^^


Mmmmhm. I bascialyl got shit today for saying that I highly doubt this is the apocalypse. You know that thing we have had like two of a year since fucking 2012.

Yeah it's been alright. Two decent drawings were made, the narration part of one video was finished and all is well. Again, not too exciting, but when is my life ever.

OH, aside from me having my first case of a drawing absolutely blowing up. I drew a simple, quic little Stevonnie the other day and put it on Reddit (trying to learn to use the site) and over the course of a day it ended up on 3.9k upvotes. Never seen a reaction liek that to anything I've done, and it was just a quickie pic I farted out out of boredom.

Internet is weird.

People want their apocalypse parties, don't be such a buzzkill ;PP i kid of course, but while this situation sucks, it's not gonna end us all

drawings and narration are 2 of my favorite things, so from my perspective, you are very exciting ^^

woaaaah dude! that's awesome! i don't think i ever had anything that got 1k on reddit, let alone 3k! that's awesome dude ^^ did you get any awards too?

it certainly is! welcome to the show ;33


Clearly. In her defense, she's often ill in general, so I don't blame her for being worried. BUt I mean goddamn, just this sunday I had to assure my 12-year old student she doesn't need to worry too much. Not that she was panicking, but still, I am getting pretty pissed at all these panicspreaders.

Oh u with that.

One person got me an award, and I have NO idea what that means


File: 1583885110605.jpg (69.6 KB, 752x786, 376:393, DxAFi1JWkAE1EL-.jpg) ImgOps Exif Google

ahh if she's 12 and gets sick a lot, i understand then. it can be very scary to hear about this world wide disease that has already killed a lot of people. and the media definitely doesn't help people relax for sure. it's unfortunately a biproduct of our interconnected world :PP


it means somebody spent money to give you an icon! what kind did you get?


Nono these are two different people. My bad for not clarifying. The lady who gets sick a lot is a friend of my mom's.

Well dang.

Golden Narwhal Statue. Again, I have no idea what that means, but I assume Gold is a pretty good thing

ahh okay, well still people gonna freak :PP

i do believe that is like $4 worth of award there, and you get a week of Reddit Premium and 100 coins, which is enough to give somebody a silver ^^



I dun really know what Premium gets you and doubt I'd use it much, but I definitely appreciate the gesture.

i have no idea either, but you are basically in the Skull and Bones society now

you are part of the secret underground govt that controls the world! have fun <3

blimey! hope she gets better soon!

Nooooo I dun wanna I just wanna make things and, you know, having some success doing so would be nice too


Shrug. We just got flyers for 'coping with the fear of coronavirus' along with the usual advice.

huh, my state declared a state of emergency for the corona virus, so that's fun!

you can still do that! but now you also pull the strings of society and bend all to your will!


Spoke too soon. They cancelled one of my business trips that was deemed 'non-essential'. Ugh.


Noooooo absolute power corrupts absolutely and I dun wanna be corrupt!

Friend of mine went to POrtugal today. I haven't heard any bad news from there, but God do I not want him to get stuck there the way some are stuck in ITaly.

perhaps you should have thought about that before somebody gave you gold, my bro!

>hugs and kajis <3

i gotta head out, so i'll catch you later! take it easy ^^


Yeah, that kind of thing would be awful. Not saying self-isolation is a bad policy either but that kind of thing could be the difference between making enough to pay rent for some people. It doesn't surprise me that there have been reports of skipping isolation.

Europe is surfing wave 2 now.

We had like 80 cases per day at the first half of the month, but that's been quintupled in less than 2 weeks.

I still see a lot of tomfoolery and neighsaying out there, especially now that people are pushing mouthmasks as a general rule.

At any rate
Moony still seems fine.

If we're lucky, we will look back on 2020 and think "That was an insane unreal year. We stayed home at all times and had to cover our faces every time we went out."

If we're unlucky, well, we'll probably literally see the world go into madness in the coming months and know that there's nothing left to stop it and we'll probably die choking on our fluids at home since there's nobody left to take care of us.

i still believe to this that i have COVID-19 like around the end of march

anyway, this will all move on eventually and people will learn to how to deal with

specially when a vaccine is available

although i personally believe people will still be wearing masks for the foreseeable future


Doomsday prophecy does nobody any good.

THe situation is absolutely serious and should be treated as such, but this is not the world's first health crisis, nor is it the first time it has had a wave two, or the first time some have handled it better than others. The illness itself is even comparatively mild when put against some that have come before.

Shit sucks and may still suck for a while, but going out of our way to call it the end times hs basically no purpose beyond causing harm.
