    it should be easy for Spidey and Doc Ock to Practice social distancing with the webs and metal arms. So those two should be safe.

    And Susan Storm, too… but all need to eat and touch objects.

    The Healers should be able to heal themselves and be safe, I think.

    Does anyone think that there will be a baby boom in 9 months from everyone staying inside. Kind of like there was after that big New York Blackout years ago?

    I do that anyway because I'm an obsessive hand washer.

    I get this is bad. But the panic from people and the over reaction are really getting on my nerves.
    They will have to put up with me. I sneeze all year round and have a continuing stuffy nose from constant congestion and a dried out system no matter how much water I drink. I both sneeze and cough because of it. Some little gifts from Fibromyalgia. I'll do the best I can but I won't be apologetic for it but they might get a little "education."

    Kind of hard to do when you don't have water.

    The little bottle of hydro-alcoholic solution seems to be the next best thing.
    Alcohol-based products, which pretty much includes all “disinfectant” products, contain a high-percentage alcohol solution (typically 60-80% ethanol) and kill viruses in a similar fashion. But soap is better because you only need a fairly small amount of soapy water, which, with rubbing, covers your entire hand easily. (Pall Thordarson)
    I bought one a long time ago and didn't use it. But, thanks to the alcohol in it, apparently, the product can be preserved for a long time.

    Social distancing, and general keeping up with general hygiene are the big ones. I would say social distancing is vague enough that you might want to give yourself more specific rules to follow however:

    Work from home if you have the option. Exercise indoors when possible, if you have to go for a walk/run keep your distance from people, but don't go to a gym. Try to have three weeks worth of food in your home at any given time, and only go out to buy additional items once a week (same day, time, and place ideally)*. If you get things delivered, tip them well and avoid contact. The correct number of people for a safe gathering is one (yourself), but naturally you might be living with other people so as long as they're playing it as safe as you are that should be fine. Don't play soccer with the boys.

    *If this lasts as long as it probably will, if you follow this routine you will likely get to the point where you can easily skip weeks.

    Continuity, even in a "shared" comics universe is often insignificant if not largely detrimental to the quality of a comic.

    Alienated - Die - Far Sector - New Mutants - Once & Future - Runaways - RWBY - X-Men

    Nobody cares about what you don't like, they barely care about what you do like.

    Still no city wide quarantine where I live. But:
    Working from home office.
    Lot's of shops (except for example: TESCO, Auchan, Spar, etc...) closing after 3pm.
    Swimming pools, libraries, etc... are closed temporary.
    Keeping distance between people or in case of some shops, only 5 people allowed inside it at the same time.
    Free (limited) mobile net for everybody.
    Less people inside the buses and there is a cordon between the bus driver and the passengers.
    Only digital classes so every school building are empty.
    Etc... Etc...

    So this is the first time for me being living during a global pandemic..

    My country right now is in Quarantine and I would want so say something : Dont panic.

    Some people get in panic the first day of the quarantine where I live but the first week has been pretty normal. You just need a routine of washing your hands, be appart of others and stay in home all you can. We know that we will be in this situation some time so its just matter of time the adaptation to the new normal.

    I took the phone number of my usual shop for home delivery… just in case.

    It was written on the placard that, due to the circumstances, there was no mimum amount for free delivery.

    Hello,

    here is a video that summarizes how the coronavirus works and the things you can do to avoid contamination.

    It's rather short and well done:

    Talk about an over reaction. My town has cancelled the annual Lick Each Others Faces festival. I am really bummed out.

    Wolverine and Deadpool should be able to survive poisoning of any kind of pathogen.

    If Covid-19 did wash over the 616 MU, unchecked, the death rate would be 3% at worst so 3 Billion people would still survive anyway. It’s the panic, shutdowns/lock-ins, and hits to the economy in the MU that would cause so much social disruption that strong, powerful, countries would collapse and China would take over everything. Think about that as the next phase of the MU.
