1. Do you have or have you had the Coronavirus (COVID-19)?

No

2. Does someone you know have/had it?

No

3. Do you know someone that has died from it?

No

4. Have you lost your job or been financially impacted by it?

I'm going to lose my job (management consultant), but for another reason (we are two in the firm and my boss is going to stop working so I have to find something else). The prospects of finding a new job are not great right now, especially as a consultant as the majority of clients stopped their projects. I think I should be able to find something in september. Might be impossible before that as almost nobody works in July/August in France with the holidays and everything.

We shall see!

Seems like mk, kleinbl00 and you are three against 0, so I'm going to follow your advice and not get scammed.

Thanks :)

Thanks mk, after reading your comment and kleinbl00, it definitely seems like its not the best course of action.

Thanks for the heads-up. Thought I would be able to see the scammers by checking history records & transactions amounts, but you are right, it's a risk I'm not willing to take.

I'm wondering if I should order 1000 N95 masks from Alibaba for ~ 1500€.

I feel like the nurses and kind of everybody would need it in Paris. But I don't know if such a small order would help in any way.

Is that crazy ? To try to do that on an individual basis ? Might be too late.

Seems like it's insane to give counter-indications on such issues.

It's like there are two parents, one being the French Health Minister and the other the European Medicines Agency, and one says "you can go out to see your gf" and the other "you have to stay home". Fucking hell, how stupid can that be in a crisis.

Just don't use ibuprofen and take alternatives that have less chance to fuck you up, why would you put up your health for gamble ? even if ibuprofen isn't a risk, just don't try it, because it might be.

So upset by how western countries are handling all this.
