Well certainly all should conduct themselves as they see fit.

And generally speaking, panicked reactions are historically a pretty poor return on investment.

However I spoke with my sister in law today. She is neither an epidemiologist, nor is she even a virologist. She is however, a highly respected micro biologist. Her clearly guarded, and well considered replies to my inquiries gave me pause to consider things.

She stated a number of things to me that gave me cause for concern. Not least of which was that we are clearly dealing with something new here as things that should be happening according to normal paths of virology. They are not occurring. Additionally things that would not be expected to show themselves in this regard actually are doing so.

So you pays your money and you takes your chances, the same as always. I have however reconsidered some things with renewed interest post conversation with my SIL.
