Reasoning, logic and common sense seem to be thrown out the window when certain words are used to describe situations.  In my opinion, it's some speculation as well as science but realistically time will be the test that may matter most.

I saw that and agree Caroline, it should be calming but, those who don't want to believe (or remember) history, simply won't.

Caroline,

My niece is in Thailand at the moment.  She is scheduled to go out of Vietnam home, but Thailand will not issue a visa there.  And this too shall pass.  A

The media has hyped this and politicians have politicized it. People are panicked thus, there will be no calming them until the government says so.

You really don't know what to believe anymore but obviously there has been similar reactions from the market.

This is a time to take as many cautions as you can but not a time to panic. Panic clouds your thinking.

Before civilization became organized and connected, concerns were limited to local events driven by wants, needs & desires. Now that we have access to global various news why would we make that a part of our intimate local lives? In my world, regardless of circumstances, all is well and I remain grateful. Opportunity & prosperity are always looking for hosts. What other approach is there? Defeat? Surrender? Enabling NEVER!

As one who is not even slightly concerned the chart has no effect on me Caroline Gerardo . Those who are panicing are going to panic no matter what is said at this point.

Worth a try. I posted that graph on my Facebook too, we need to be beacons to our community. I never remember freaking out this bad (the public not me) over any of those above and I lived through all of'em.

I'm keeping my head & health and trying live by example.

I do not think it will help - for many reasons.  Among them - people cannot see when in a state of panic.

I don't think this would have any impact.  None of these were the cyclical "once every hundred years" plagues, like the Wuhan Coronavirus is.  Check out history, there has been a major world-wide plague every 100 years near the 20th year of the century dating back 300 years, including the "Black Death" that inspired children's rhymes.

The stock market famously over-reacts, it will correct itself; the other concerns are serious i.e. seniors, performances, graduations, sports events, etc.
