All joking aside, I really hope that everyone in the community, and their friends and family, are safe.
Now to the point. The one thing I see Coronavirus doing for our community is giving us a different origin story of the Apocalypse! Imagine the future history of TME based on a pandemic, and how the virus mutating changed people. How to explain the devastation and destruction? Easy... what else do humans do when scared but become even more destructive. Fear of the effects of an out of control virus sparks attacks on quarantined cities by their own countries, and mistakes lead to a quick escalation.
Just an idea. Trying to find something good today.

I agree that a virus, even in certain pre-devastation regions, would hasten a collapse. I've been on this rock for a long time now and I have never seen store shelves cleared out as I have with this Covid-19 situation. I can only imagine adding some other catastrophe on top of this, like an invasion, robotic rebellion, mutant creatures in the community or a 2nd great depression.
I had my fourth eye procedure a few weeks back and was so glad it wasn't postponed again. I don't want to be anywhere near a hospital right now if I can avoid it. That said, I have been sick for 8 days now with some sorta cold, but feel pretty good otherwise. Working on a newsletter so stay tuned!

Thanks, Tim, Feeling a bit better today. Trying to get lots of sleep and shake this thing. On top of the Wuflu there are some other flus going around town, too. I got no time to be sick. I got a busy day!
