My scale:


1. The features of the new iPhone dominate your day dreams. CNN and/or Fox dictates what to “not worry about.”





2. CORONAVIRUS – it’s a bug. It’s started in China where most consumer electronics originate.

After seeing the folks wear masks for decades, they are now completely vindicated!


*** No relation to Corona Beer.



3. The United States has one confirmed case. You never see them ever again, but they are apparently “stable and improving.”





4. Coronavirus concentrations in Asia and maybe a few other nearby regions. Unconfirmed rumors and reports of cases spreading. Most turn out to be false alarms. You may be getting depressed. A slight tinge of concern this may actually be the start of the end. "Eat, Drink, and be Merry, for tomorrow we die."



5. Half way between blissful ignorance and duc-t (With a T) tapping doors and windows. Coronavirus is on the news on most channels, most of the day





6. Confirmed Coronavirus cases in multiple continents including Canada and Mexico. Here is a brief moment of serious contemplation for Grevlin. You may vomit. Feel trapped while standing out in the open. Relax. Don’t Panic.



7. Cases of Coronavirus in more than one State in the Continental United States. Fox says “We might have a problem folks. Go buy a shotgun.” As prepared people, you will most likely go to the liquor store cuz that’s all you have left to stock up on. You may bump into Grevlin rollin’ a shopping cart down the isles smiling.





8. Multiple cases in multiple states. Empty seats start developing at work. You are wondering why the **** you are still sitting in yours. You may go home to stay.



9. Multiple cases in your State. CNN says “We might have a problem folks. Go buy a case of water and some Pepto.” You are no longer leaving your “castle” unless REALLY needed.





10. You feel 100% that the time has come. Outbreak, Contagion, WWZ, Yer done son. There is nothing to do in your day but avoid catching the bug at all costs.








And then... ?

Grevlin may get some answers he's wondered about his whole life. Most likely right at the last moment of said life.

FROM CDC:
"Where Do Coronaviruses Come From?

Coronaviruses are common in many different species of animals, including camels and bats. Rarely, these coronaviruses can evolve and infect humans and then spread between humans. Recent examples of this include SARS-CoV and MERS-CoV."

FROM IMDB:


"A final flashback occurs. We finally see what caused the global epidemic. A construction crew from Beth's company AIMM was cutting down trees in a forest in China. That caused some bats to fly out. One bat was infected with the virus. It grabbed a piece of banana and perched above a pig's pen. It dropped the banana piece which we are to assume had the virus on it. A pig eats it and is eventually slaughtered at market for food. A chef handles the dead pig, touching the inside of the infected pig's mouth with his bare hands. He goes out to dining room and poses in a picture with Beth holding hands, transferring the virus to her and starting the chain of events." From Contagion, 2011
