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!

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?

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?

>>1023331
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

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.

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.

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.

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.
