The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, tiredness, and dry cough. Some patients may have aches and pains, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat or diarrhea. These symptoms are usually mild and begin gradually. Some people become infected but don’t develop any symptoms and don't feel unwell.

Doesn't sound explosive to me, Spam.

Nope. Just clueless people. What they are telling first responders is gloves, N95 mask. This must be fitted properly to be effective and glasses or face shield. Disinfect surfaces.

'Queen of Toilet Paper'
Australian woman Haidee Janetzki accidentally ordered 48 cases of toilet paper. (YouTube/7NEWS Australia)
This Aussie is one reason for the toilet paper shortage
Can you ever have too much toilet paper?
While coronavirus fears have unusually spawned massive hoarding of toilet paper all around the world, one Australian woman can claim she may have something to do with it.
According to 7NEWS Australia, Haide Janetzki of Toowoomba went to order some butt paper from the appropriately named website Who Gives A Crap. Janetzki intended to order 48 rolls of toilet paper, but she got 48 boxes of the product instead.
One box has 48 rolls, leaving her with a total of 2,306 rolls. That’s enough paper to last Janetzki’s family for 12 years.
And the total cost of her mistaken order: $2,920, plus $358 in postage.
“Everyone was laughing at me for ordering too much toilet paper and now everyone’s begging me for some,” Janetzki told 7NEWS, referencing the shortage in Australia. “Now we’re like, ‘now who’s laughing?’”
Janetzki said she’s not going to wait 12 years to use up the paper product. The woman is selling the toilet paper with a slight mark-up to help raise money for her children’s school trip to Canberra.
The money will help offset some of the costs for her and 40 parents who are sending their kids on the trip.
The woman can’t help but be the butt of jokes. But she has a good sense of humour.
“I’ve been called the Queen of Toilet Paper,” she said.

My thought for the asswipe scalpers is to confiscate their entire supply and give it to the food bank.

Re toilet paper panic and panic buying in general: Costco said they are not taking back toilet paper, lysol, disinfectants or anything else they figure was bought in a hoarding or profiteering attempt.

Good on them.

Now everyone is stuck with all that merch and the lesson is there for the learning

Yes, at at there warehouses if one worker gets COVID-19 the rest still are required to come in.. Possibly spreading the virus in the warehouse, community and on the goods sold in the store. The virus lives for 72 hours in plastics.

Essential works eh!?

2 test positive at Langley, BC depot

Back in my day, the only time we started panic buying was when the bartender yelled "Last call".

'BAG IT, DON'T FLUSH IT': Californians using T-shirts in place of toilet paper, leading to sewer blockages
Postmedia News
Published:
March 23, 2020

March 23, 2020 2:25 PM EDT
Northern Californians are going to extreme measures amidst a growing shortage of toilet paper.
Some residents are cutting up T-shirts to use as toilet paper and then flushing the scraps down into the sewer system causing mass blockages, the Daily Mail reported.
A public warning was issued to the residents of Redding, Calif., not to flush anything down the toilet other than toilet paper because doing so can lead to problematic blockages that result in fecal matter backing up into people’s showers, toilets, and sinks.
A crew was dispatched to deal with a sewer blockage that resulted from a cut-up T-shirt that had been flushed down the toilet Wednesday, Redding Searchlight reported.
Local officials advised residents who had run out of toilet paper to “Bag it. Don’t flush it,” while saying other items such as baby wipes, napkins and paper towels should not be flushed into the sewer system.
The coronavirus pandemic has led many to stock up and hoard personal hygiene items and groceries, leading some companies to limit the number of items a single family can purchase at one time in an attempt to prevent undue panic-purchasing.
As of March 21, California had 1,468 positive cases of coronavirus and 27 people had died from the virus.

THE VILE “INFLUENCER”
It was all a bit of a giggle, really.
So-called “influencer” Ava Louise — who famously posted a video of herself on TikTok licking an airplane toilet seat as part of a COVID-19 gag — revealed to Dr. Phil she did it all for publicity and fame.
And the seat? It was disinfected beforehand.
“I had way dirtier things in my mouth that whole spring break. Two, I bleached [the toilet]. Three, private plane,” she told the incredulous TV shrink.
“I flew down on my sugar daddy’s plane with my best friend. So really, it wasn’t that dirty. I wasn’t putting myself or anyone else at risk.”
Louise, 21, said since none of her friends has thus far tested positive for COVID-19, she thought it was a hoax.
“Yeah, I think that’s what the media is doing I think with this entire virus,” she said.
Aspiring “influencer” Ava Louise went on Dr. Phil to make everyone vomit. INSTAGRAM
“It’s funny because I created the fake news myself … I represent the whole Gen Z population in that I’m not terrified of [coronavirus]. I was with thousands of people at Spring Break. I was kissing people, I was acting out, I was being promiscuous … and nothing happened,” she said.
She added she created the coronavirus challenge because the pandemic was taking attention away from her.
“I was, like, really annoyed that corona was getting more publicity than me,” she said, adding she wants to be “insta-famous.”

By the looks of it the Mrs has been buying TP and stockpiling it one pack at a time all while I have been doing the same.

I've never had so many options of brands, textures, prints and plies.
