It is definitely more serious than I ever thought.
But it's not more serious than we've been trying to tell you. A couple of days ago, when you said, "I just go everywhere. Believe the cat is out of the bag. Believe I have been exposed, and everyone soon will be too.", we were trying to suggest to you that what you were doing is what's caused the virus to spread.
• Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet). • Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.
Can someone spread the virus without being sick? • People are thought to be most contagious when they are most symptomatic (the sickest). • Some spread might be possible before people show symptoms; there have been reports of this occurring with this new coronavirus, but this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads.
Spread from contact with contaminated surfaces or objects It may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes, but this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads.
======= So, the bottom line is to stay at least 6' away from others who are not in your immediate family and the very best way to insure that happens is to shelter in place...stay home. Only venture out, as required, to obtain groceries, etc.
If a boat has 10 leaks, and you fix 7, the boat will still stillsink. Is this a bad analogy?
No, not bad, terrible. It doesn't come anywhere close to being analogous to the Coronavirus crisis. Anyone, at any age, can contact coronavirus and die from it. Most will be very sick, but will eventually recover. However, some of those who recover, will have suffered permanent lung damage.
Again, the best way to avoid *spreading* the virus is not to go about business-as-usual, as is, unfortunately, still being done in too many places in the country. I live in California and our governor issued a statewide shelter-in-place on March 19, about 10 days ago. Considering the seriousness of the coronavirus threat, the number of people who have died and will die because of it, we would be much safer today if all 50 states had issued and enforced that order in early February, IMO.
mercel: It's been a long strange trip - good to see you're still around (and in AAPL -my assumption).

sponge: Regarding the future of VR, I think it will be huge. I was a gamer when I was in college. But as an adult I lost interest. Last fall I flew up to visit my son at college and check out his new Vive set up. After playing with it for the weekend, I was
