Ok folks, so let's talk about this for a minute. As of right now these are the stats.

Over the past 24 hours, the U.S. reported 14,024 new cases of coronavirus and 265 new deaths, raising the total to 68,347 cases and 1,037 dead https://t.co/47MXF0XUJ0
Now that we see these numbers how do we feel about the situation?

Keep in mind, there are 330 million or so people in the US.

We are in stay-at-home voluntary lockdown. I'm waiting for news on where we can get HydroxyChloroquine as a treatment. Unfortunately, our governor (Sisolak) has his head in the proverbial 'dark space'... I'll bet he has access to treatments...
I consider this to be a SHTF situation.

Do be careful with it.

I was taking it for a couple of years. A rheumatologist had me on it to see if it would help with some all over aches & pain.

It didn’t.

I had to go to an ophthalmologist every 6 months to make sure some physical changes to my eyes were not happening.

@WolfBrother, First, I have to actually get the drug. It is being locked down and even banned in some places (Nevada!).
Until that is reversed, I won't be taking it.

Understand. I’ve been seeing a lot about getting it and nothing on how it can mess you up.

Just speaking up to all of us here.

Another point, @WolfBrother, my understanding is the HydroxyChloroquine is NOT a prophylactic, ie. it is not intended to Prevent infection before it occurs. It is said to be a Treatment for the actual infection. That means Don't take it before infection is confirmed.

Michigan’s Democrat Governor THREATENS All Doctors and Pharmacists who Prescribe or Dispense Hydroxychloroquine for Coronavirus Patients
https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/20...-dispense-hydroxychloroquine-for-coronavirus/

Detroit News reported:
If you live in Michigan, and you or a loved one is infected with this potentially lethal disease, you’re out of luck.
Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs literally threatened all doctors and pharmacists in the state who prescribe or dispense hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID-19.
The agency’s March 24 letter warns physicians and pharmacists of professional consequences for the prescribing of hydroxychloroquine (and chloroquine). Beyond the rational recommendation against hoarding as production of this medication needs to be ramped up, the letter deviates into open threats of “administrative action” against the licenses of doctors that prescribe hydroxychloroquine.
The letter also instructs pharmacists to ignore physician orders for this medication. Due to the debate over a pharmacist’s right to refuse to fill medications that go against their religious beliefs, this could place pharmacists in the unprecedented position of being told that they must fill prescriptions that violate their “conscience (religious belief)” but must not fill prescriptions to treat COVID-19.
Even worse, the letter indicates health care providers are “required to report” their fellow physicians who are prescribing these medications. This draconian measure carries ominous Gestapo-like overtones of neighbor reporting neighbor to “authorities.”
