    My mother is immunocompromised, luckily my university has shut down to change to online classes and my dad is able to work from home.

    “Don’t hang in large crowds.”

    *Thinks of the people at Costco for the last two weeks.*

    • Sandully23 says:

      Haha I work for Costco, and I’m pretty sure we are immune to everything….

    • Rachel Light says:

      @RabidKashew the problem with stocking up is that it prevents people that actually need those items (elderly people and Immune compromised people aren’t able to get those items. People who stock up are selfish to those who really need them. But that’s just my opinion. I just think people just need to start thinking of those in need of those resources instead and try to help them in some way.

    • Aletta Petra Albert says:

      @Patrick Meredith Same. After I heard panic shopping news from my home country I started to buy basic necessities just in case. Not insane amounts like hundreds of toilet rolls but enough that I don’t need to worry for a few weeks. Sadly people are predictable

    • MrAudienceMember says:

      Rachel Light it’s also the people on tight budgets living check to check. They can’t afford to shop daily or can’t get to the store daily to see if items are restocked.
      Being in this group, I can tell you that I cannot afford to drive from store to store looking for toilet paper. I check the three nearest which are always empty for the last four days.

    I’ve basically stopped working my part time job for spring break because i work at a large mall close to an airport. Most of my family is over 50 and I’m scared that if I get it work I might infect them. I was looking forward to earning some more pocket money and I’m losing a whole 2 weeks- worth of pay, but I understand the severity of this situation and am willing to make those sacrifices to ensure the protection of my family. So when you expose yourself, just remember it’s not just about you, it’s about your parents, your grandparents, and our medically fragile friends that all need to be protected.

    • Calter Bro's says:

      Those sacrifices are worth it if it stops your family from becoming ill. It is a tiny price to pay. See if you can work overtime after the virus.

    • John says:

      Its good that you have the luxury of being able to do that, but many people don’t have that choice.
      The poetic thing about it is, the people most at risk of having complications from the disease are the people who have had the most opportunity to pass laws that would enable workers to stay home while ill.

    • RT says:

      I’m glad you could do that but I can’t… I live in Portugal and although the situation here could be worse it still is bad. The government closed bars closed schools closed nightclubs but then… I work at a store in a local shopping center and shopping centers didn’t close… It did change the hours I can come home earlier but it still isn’t enough as I see people everyday disrespecting the rule of not leaving the house. I wish I could do that but I can’t. We couldn’t survive without my job and I love what I do.. I hope the government will see us as a “not a necessity store” and let us close until this passes but I don’t see that happening. Stay safe and stay at home

    • Marie owl says:

      @John karma for the greedy.

  4. Justin Phelps says:

    You look tired Mike. God bless you and all the Healthcare professionals working

  5. Janhavi Chaudhari says:

    Nobody:

    Dr. Mike: “This isn’t a ‘PANIC’demic. It’s a ‘PAN’demic.”
    👏🏼 😂
    Can we get this in skywriting, so we can see it from our windows at home while we’re on self-quarantine and social distancing like all responsible human beings should be? 🤓 #AlertNotAnxious

  6. CeeCee says:

    Question: Can you explain the difference between “social distancing”, “Self Isolation”, “self-quarantine”, and “quarantine”?

    • Iulia's Vloggs says:

      CeeCee Social distancing= avoid crowds, busy spaces
      Self isolation= stay at home, to protect yourself even if u dont have the virus.
      self quarantine= stay in yours house while you are infected
      quarantine= people that presents sintoms being held in a place in a special place chose by government like some hospitals, hotels etc…

    • Allison Hancock Presley says:

      Social distancing is staying 6 feet apart, staying out of crowds completely.

    • ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) says:

      @Iulia’s Vloggs Quarantine is for people that may have the virus regardless of symptoms. Isolation is for people that either have symptoms or have been confirmed to have the virus.

  7. bitch idk who I am so u won't no either xox says:

    in Ireland, we closed the schools. we also called off any event that has over 100 people like mass, weddings and were not allowed funerals and wakes( when we hold the corpse in the house for 3 days awaiting him/her to come back) to stop the spread

    • Mikael Sojka says:

      You missed the most important part of that first one: chest compressions. You got the two right but forgot the third.

  9. Anton Demchenko says:

    thank you for clarifying about the 10 seconds test and the warm water. I even heard this information from my parents in Ukraine (russian part of internet). Man, misinformation spreads so fast.

  10. Ribotto Studios says:

    *everyone:* THIS IS A PANDEMIC-it’s LITERALLY in 100 countries and there’s 195 countries why isn’t this a pandemic?! Label it a pandemic.
    *WHO:* Nah
    _2 weeks later_
    *WHO:* It’s a pandemic
    *everyone:* oh my god -_-

    2020: People stealing toilet paper from bathroom stalls

    • Perry Brown says:

      Now kids, sit down and let grandpa tell you the story of how he survived the great toilet paper famine, way back in 2020…

    • Tim Carder says:

      “Dad, when you gus had that SARS thing going on did they close schools, cancel events and shut down all the sports leagues?”

      “No son. We gathered up half a million people, went to Toronto, got half loaded and watched AC/DC bury the Rolling Stones.”

    • Gaby Champion says:

      Why is there a toilet paper shortage? I’ve been hearing it for days but it hasn’t happened in my country.

    • Perry Brown says:

      @Gaby Champion I really can’t understand what is happening – it must be something which is propagating on “twitface”.
      Here, in Australia, I went shopping a week or so ago – the shelves were empty. No toilet paper, no tissues, no paper towels, no rice, no pasta, no flour, no hand wash, no disinfectant…
      Stuff is gradually being replenished, but the poo-tickets are still unavailable and people line up for their supply each morning(!).
      I am pleased that the supermarkets have said the will not be giving any refunds on this stuff if you try to bring it back.
      I would say that in my area, most of the people are Asian – so maybe they know something I don’t…
      But honestly, the real reason is probably just that humans are stupid.

    • Manakh Jyoti Phukon says:

      @Perry Brown How is the situation in Australia? Is everything okay there. Have they found a cure yet?

  14. Possibly 91 Bears says:

    My tired mind heard “this isn’t a pandaemic, it’s a pandemic.”

  15. Kascie Autumn says:

    “I would not be surprised if schools shut down”
    3 hours later: New York shutting down schools for 2 weeks

  16. priscila hurtado says:

    I love watching these videos. They LITERALLY bring me peace and comfort and remind me to “stay alert and not anxious”. Reminding me that as long as I do my part and follow CDC guidelines that I shouldn’t have to worry 🙏😅❤️

    *Coronavirus: exist*

    *Everyones first thought: TOILET PAPER*

  20. Cady B says:

    I get kind of frustrated when everyone is like “don’t go to work! Stay home! Avoid large crowds.” I work at a grocery store. Even if my state or the whole country goes into lockdown, I’ll still be expected to work because “essentials” like grocery stores and pharmacies will stay open for at least limited hours. I can’t work from home. And if I don’t go to work, I don’t get paid. They’ve only agreed to pay us for sick leave if we test positive for the virus. I feel like I’m stuck between a rock and a hard place. If I don’t go to work, I can’t get paid. If I go to work, I risk exposure to the virus and bringing it home. My father lives with me, he’s in his 50s with high blood pressure and a blood/liver disease. I’m so scared I’ll catch the virus and bring it home to him. I’m honestly afraid I’ll get fired if I try to just stay home and self isolate for two weeks. Like, risking my health and my family’s health by having to work through a viral pandemic national emergency was not part of the job description.

    • Oranges Brown says:

      Cady B I feel your dilemma I work in healthcare so……

    • Caitlyn says:

      I agree. I work in a group for people with intellectual disabilities. So people need to be there all the time. I can’t stay home easily. My mom is young but immunocompromised. I don’t live with her. But I do worry that I’ll be mandated to be quarantined at work(which is our policy if that happens). It worries me that she’ll be left to her own device because my younger, responsible brother lives in a different province. my older, conspiracy driven, anti-vaxxer brother lives five minutes from her.

    • Candace Colon-Rivera says:

      Same here I’m a nurse. Thankfully I was able to get off my job at a large facility because I have private cases that I can work. If I didn’t have a disabled niece living with me, I’d pick up shifts anywhere! Screw be getting it, I cannot rick my family getting it. I can’t imagine. There’s so many people in similar situations. Especially single parents & school being cancelled. Daycares are limiting kids & it’s expensive anyway. A lot of these parents live paycheck to paycheck & cannot just stay home. But they have young kids with nowhere to go. What a horrible situation! I can’t imagine being having to deal with that & my heart really goes out to all those families.

    • Candace Colon-Rivera says:

      Look into social services in your local area. With the bill being passed, they’re changing the requirements for food stamps, cash assistance & ect. There might be some options for you. Maybe you still have to work a bit to compensate but you could potentially be able to reduce your hours. Just a thought.
