I wonder how many hypochondriacs will feel "ill" and request a virus test.

Ya know, when gov'ts of all levels, are saying things like your mortgage payments are suspended, or your utilities payments are suspended, or your rent is suspended,,,,,,eventually, these payments will come due. These payments are not cancelled, they are just delayed.

Ya know, on the news tonight they said that 4,000 Canadians are on cruise ships around the world. Where have these people been in the last 3 weeks, some place where there is no cell phone reception, no twitter, no FB? They should have got their butts off the ship and onto the first plane out.

I think it's meant for people who pay their bills at a bank. I do all my stuff online. Haven't been in a bank in over 2 years.

Too bad there wasn't a tip line for people to call if they had seen price gouging. 

From an article from Canadian Press on gouging in the U.S.

"One store advertised hand sanitizer at $60 a bottle. Another was accused of hawking it at $1 a squirt. Chain stores offered $26 thermometers and face masks at the “everyday low price” of $39.95 a pair, while a convenience store touted toilet paper at $10 a roll next to a sign reading: “This is not a joke.”

Best way to deal with scammers and gougers is don't buy it. Stores that have shortages are just temporary, and for the most part are restocking ASAP. Stores like Costco finally got the message and are restricting some product to reasonable amounts. Was good to see them make a statement that they would no longer allow people to return TP and other cleaning supplies. Let them sit on their garages full of the carp.

Wife made an interesting observation. Stores should not take back clothes, because of someone trying them on and then returning them, could be contaminated.

Id be reporting them. There are price gouging laws in most provinces.  Its not legal to raise prices exorbitantly during a crisis unless the cost to the retailer has also increased exponentially.

This. And stores that sell items that are not necessities shouldnt be open.  The only way the quarantining & self-distancing works is if everyone does their part.

I've been taping a lot of nature and history shows this past week, so I have something to watch. 

Just a thought. I wonder if scientists and researchers that are/have been trying to find a cure for caner, and some of the other diseases, have put those researches on hold and instead put their focus on finding a cure for this virus. I mean IMO, this is more important.

I think they found a cure for caner already. Just use an opener.

I think the best way to deal with those scamming businesses is to not shop there ever again. Spread the word around and put them out of business! Newspapers should publish the names of these businesses.
