Anyone else on this bowl TERRIFIED about lay-offs in a time where most countries have their borders close so we cant even go home?

Absolutely. I wish I had followed my intuition... I wanted to go back and work from home before this escalated. Now I’m stuck here, my visa’s been processed but I don’t know how long it’ll take (the system was already backlogged before COVID-19). Honestly, it’s a really scary time. You’re not alone, though. Stay strong!

Go to Mexico, then head home from there. Nice place to hang and cheap.

Why are there not more facilities to administer the vaccines? Projections, if accurate, say the current method will take 5-10 years to vaccinate the needed numbers for herd immunity. Why are we not increasing the numbers of people who can administer the shot? If supplies are the issue, spend the money to increase it. Why are there not more mobilization efforts like there were for polio and other historical examples? Go door to door. Do something.
