Essential goods in times of Covid19

As you are all aware, in the US of A, essential goods includes guns and ammunition. I think these are useful in killing the virus.

In SA where Ark lives you can’t go out to buy alcohol or cigarettes.

And here at home, among the goods considered essential for daily life is tobacco and alcohol. The who list can be found here. I must however add that I don’t trust this newspaper. It is what I would call gutter press.

I hope wherever you are, you are not missing on essential goods and services.

In other depressing news related to the virus, I read this doomsday post that basically says we are in for a marathon of self distancing, quarantines and economic hell for at least the next 18 months or when the laboratories working on a virus get one and it is wildly available all over the world.

What do you think? Is it too alarmist or should we think of reorganization of our lives in ways not imagined before.
