    That will be a tough one for us. We basically globally ceased operations - not that there was much business the weeks before to begin with.

    We're also in "Fucked if you do - fucked if you don't" situation. People are obviously cancelling their travels and rightfully so demanding, and also very much needing, refunds. Which forces us to shell out money without any current income to speak of*), which in turn drains our (non-existing) liquidity even more. We try to offer refund vouchers in order to be able to sustain a bit of liquidity, but understandably people prefer money.

    *) absurdly enough, the only revenue generated currently stems from cancellation fees - which then leads to said refunds.

    On the one hand the job security that comes associated with manufacturing an absolutely essential item is nice. On the other hand I'm working shifts whilst people are getting paid 80% to not work.

    I understand it's necessary to get people to stay home but why that is a percentage rather than a flat figure I don't understand. The only real difference in people's outgoings are lifestyle and fixed costs involved with housing and you could extend the same X months payment holiday to rents as mortgages have received?

    I'm just salty, got a job and no one I know has died of it so better than average I guess.
    Spoiler alert and what nobody is talking about:

    Those who are getting the 80% have been laid off. Laying off is what an employer does when temporary market conditions mean there's no work for the employee. It's basically the employer saying "we hope we'll have work for you soon, please wait for us".

    A lot of people are about to discover that their lay off is going to turn into something slightly more permanent. There are some super sekrit planning meetings going on in my company that are basically looking at which properties to reopen...and which not to. Ever. Those discussions will be repeated en masse over the next six weeks as people realise this isn't all going back to normal on the 14th of April.
    In all honesty, anyone who thinks business travel, as a whole, will cone back after this doesn't understand how business makes decisions.

    The businesses that survive this will do so on the back of telepresence.

    Why would they suddenly add massive expenses to fly around everywhere afterward?
    Business travel is one of the most obvious casualties [...]
    I don't think so. The leisure travel will be mostly dead and gone.

    And I agree with you that travels for basically pointless lets-have-a-face-to-face meeting will be gone. But there will still be business travel, as there's lots of work requiring physical presence. E.g. no one will video-conference that new solar power plant into existence.

    the market is working precisely the way it's supposed to, it's just not supposed to actually help anybody.

    Not sure if I've got it or not, will be 'self isolating' for a week anyway (not that I had any real reason to leave the house apart from fresh air).

    Saturday evening I started to develop a 'mild' dry cough, no fever, runny nose, bit of fatigue, chills and acheyness. Was pretty much wiped out yesterday, suffered some 'gastric distress' (which is now being considered an early symptom), still no fever, stuck a big dollop of mustard on a teaspoon, could barely taste it. Apart from the fatigue and trots nothing's been too severe.

    Malcanis can have my stuff.

    FYP.

    Indian Doctors is very ambiguous given that they basically keep the Australian and UK health system functioning.

    Coronavirus: Hungary government gets sweeping powers
    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-52095500

    The Hungarian Parliament has voted by 137 to 53 to accept the government's request for the power to rule by decree during the coronavirus emergency. The law contains no time limit. Prime Minister Viktor Orban promised to use the extraordinary powers he has been granted "proportionately and rationally".

    I am absolutely certain that Orban will hand these powers back at the first possible opportunity, yes sir.

    I really hope my sore throat (no runny nose, no slime in the throat), mild increase in body temperature, upset stomatch and exhaustion a week ago was the beervirus, would be nice to have a reliable test available for the antibodies

    With such an accomplished and trustworthy statesman as Orban finally in charge, things can only get better for Hungary. Sunset clauses are for democratsloosers.

    I'm speechless and don't know whether to weep or getting angry. I just hope we won't see this in German hospitals. Nurse and doctors reports on NYC situation in hospitals and that some already got COVID-19

    This is looking pretty bad for America. I hope all our American bros are keeping safe.
    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.
