    Like my company won’t say much they will pay us for time for sick pay if we get the virus but I’m young and won’t have serious issues but will need to quarantine myself now the heck would I do that in my truck with limited food no shower??? Would the government pay for a nice hotel room for me? With free food delivery!? I mean I’m not gonna go to a hospital and waste a bed and I hate hospitals what are we gonna do as truckers if we catch this covid 19 stuff?? Hell I can’t even stock up my truck because everything at every store is sold out spent 3 hours store to store today to get nothing no water or milk or rice and canned foods that we truckers need since we don’t exactly have a darn kitchen.!!! Who cares about us how are we suppose to quarantine ourselves in case we get it I’m not paying for 2 weeks of a hotel too much money!? Anyone got any answers to this??? If I have to stay in my truck I’m gonna go to truck stop for shower and food then you’ll get it makes no sense maybe I’m paranoid but we are alll thinking this

    No it aint serious at all. Why dont u talk to a doctor about it rather than dumb news ppl. A doctor will tell u it aint nothing to worry about its just another strain of the flu

    Okay clearly you haven’t been watching this news people die from this it is serious yes to healthy people it’s whatever but the older people die from it and actually it’s more contagious 10x that the flu and death rate is 3% whereas the the is 0.1 grant it we don’t have the full numbers yet

    It's government hype. The end goal is for everyone to receive a flu shot filled with only God knows what poison.

    Ur right i dont watch the news because the hype surrounding this is much worse than the actuall virus itself. I have family members that work in the healthcare field and they are all rolling their eyes at the mass hysteria that is happening
