The same shit happens every time one of these occur. Look at Zika. Or H1. Or any other virus scare. It’s scary for a year and then the media moves on and people stop worrying about it. There still is no cure or vaccine for many of them.

I’ve read online that some companies will follow policies that they’ll only close physical offices once someone from that office gets diagnosed with the virus. Which will likely be too late

I don’t think people are wrong to be worried. Am I going out buying perishables like some others? No, but I did cancel travel plans simply bc we don’t know how bad this is at this stage and it is irresponsible to put yourself at more high risk public areas

Come on people. 10,393 new COVID cases today, 5,500 in the hospital - new record highs. Positivity rate is over 20%. Dark times ahead. Maybe we need a public health policy beyond “hunker down”?!

🐠 in finance (thinking VC but PE perspective welcome as well), has COVID changed your outlook on the industry? Is it better to enter early on as a long term career or treat it as an end of career job?

Do adcoms first compare you by undergrad institution, pre-MBA industry, or post-MBA goals?
