The weird part about pandemics is that on an individual level, it probably would have been more rational to go bug chasing two weeks ago than try and protect yourself from the virus. This is a fallacy of composition situation of course - if everyone did it, we'd all be screwed. But if the virus fucks you up in three weeks, you may be in a situation where finite ventilators means a death panel essentially decides your fate whereas right now you're at least not going to be left to die. There's a window of death for at-risk people. Avoiding getting the virus is obviously the best option as treatment/vaccines appear. But seems the safest odds were getting the virus early and taking your chances. What I'm saying, as always, the smartest solution is unfortunately the attitude of 'fuck you, got mine' in this case 'mine' means already being infected by a weird Chinese bat virus.
