I was sent to a Costco to see if people are stocking up (even though health officials say it’s not necessary) in case COVID-19 gets more serious here. This guy came out of the store with 16 boxes of condoms and a big jar of coconut oil. We all have priorities.
We are at #Costco. It’s a madhouse. Every cart has like survival essentials and the guy at guest services said every Costco in Hawaii is completely sold out of toilet paper. One guy is stocking up on margaritas and he’s who I really want to have nearby when #coronavirus hits.
While growth in cases in India has so far been slow -- reaching 341 with five deaths --
by April 15 the country will be overwhelmed by infections, said Dr. T. Jacob John
the former head of the Indian Council for Medical Research’s Centre for Advanced Research in Virology
warning India’s epidemic could grow to be worse than in Italy or Iran.
Italy’s cases reached 53,578, with 793 deaths on Saturday alone, raising the total to 4,825 fatalities
as hospitals overflow and health-care workers die.
