It's all ridiculous.

There's no reason to make a run on water bottles. There's no risk of city water becoming compromised.

I've seen pictures of people loading up entire Costco grocery carts with toilet paper. Why do people all of the sudden think they're going to get long term explosive diarrhea.

The panic isn't so much about the Corona virus but more so in regards to grocery stores running out of goods and people panicking that they need to buy everything before someone else buys it all.

My wife is a MD. She's dreading going to work today to answer all the dumb questions. If you're not old, there's absolutely nothing to worry about.
I think its funny that people think reverse osmosis water is gonna help them fight the virus. If they were smart they'd be buying pedialyte and drink water that isn't stripped of all the minerals that will help give your body what it needs fight off a virus like this.
That's why I have Himalayan salt along with my reverse osmo

I was told by a local dealer that the Euro made cars on order might be delayed, kinda discouraging me from building my own. Not sure if it's a real concern or he just pushing me to take one from inventory.

Oh yeah listen to people on a forum to get good information on the precautions of the corona virus. Lol

BMW just make sure my new car is not delayed.

Funny how that works. The Costco here in Chicago was kinda empty actually. Fully stocked too.

5 drops of clorox in a gallon of water gives you 3+ppm chlorine which is more than enough. get a $10 pool test kit.

Drink bleach? I know diluted, but still. It'll kill off a lot more than just the virus...

Both. https://chlorine.americanchemistry.c...nkingWaterFAQ/

You don't smell it in your water? I assumed you would have city water in most of FL. It's almost certainly treated with chloramine.
