I mean my acquaintance and others have discouraged me to buy anything online due to the ongoing coronavirus.
I had cancelled my subscribed orders for this month but I wanted to buy 2 grocery items on offer too.. I’m very confused and a bit scared.
Please advice

Use gloves and wear mask while taking order and open box after 1-2 days (Coronavirus Doesn’t stay that long on Objects) And Sanitize your hand after that. While doing this make sure you don’t touch your face plus1

Should I just tell the delivery personnel to throw the package in one corner in veranda and open it after 2 days and then disinfect my hands?
Will that work??

Simple solution:
Just decide what’s more important for you; Life or the Offer?

For me, it would be offer grimacing

That virus is not spreading as fast as it did on China, Iran and Italy but patients and suspects running away from hospitals in India is eating away my peace.
I think I’ll just buy one and cancel others till this corona is over for good

I think you are taking it way too seriously. Things are not as bad as is projected on tv.
Just do what vaastav suggested and your will be fine.

Make sure that,you are ordering a sanitizer too in every order.obviously sanitizer spills in transit, because of amazon delivery personnel’s lack of skills for handling packages.so that whole package will be sanitized and you don’t need to worry about further 😉.

Only TWO people died in Corona in India & people are getting crazy over it like thousands of people died in India because of the disease…Result of too much addiction to the Indian news channels who never show the real problems in the country i.e, worst economic condition, unemployment, farmers suicide, rape & acid attack issues etc & only interested in making a small issue as large as possoble…

People stopped eating chickens even though no Indian chicken was ever detected with Corona…

China mein kuch chickens mein Corona paaya gaya toh hum-e kya ?? Hum China se thodi chickens import karke khaate hain ya phir hum jinse chickens kharidte hain woh vacation mein China jaate hain…Lol…

Too much rumors, assumptions & people are becoming too much serious about a small disease which could only kill TWO people in India…

Stop eating everything, stop drinking everything,stop ordering everything warna Corona ho jayega…

Marrna toh ekdin sabko hain…Itni darr kaisi maut se ?? Ceiling se fan sar pe girke bhi log marr sakte hain ghar mein lete lete…Jab jab jo jo hona hain, tab tab so so hota hain…

I just asked a simple question.. why are you having a meltdown?
And this simple pandemic quickly took away 6000+ deaths already, so let me be a bit prepared.
Also a country like India where many medical stuff are lacking for many reasons and gross malpractice happens.. if corona had started right off the bat in UP instead of Wuhan, 10k deaths would happen locally.
Also people died everyday that doesn’t mean I want to accelerate my death which I can postpone one way or another.

Corona doesn’t guarantee death, a treated person may live rest of life with malfunction organs begging for death.

You are actually underestimating the virus.
Don’t you think if people will become careless it will move to next phase and will become more dangerous so it’s better if people are precautious.
There is no need to panic.
But careless attitude can be dangerous.

Right. In every country it all started with mere few cases & now see where we are now.

Being cautious and panicked are different; he is taking about the latter

This thing has been recently started by Zomato & Swiggy. Where you can ask the delivery boy to drop the order at the door and left it. You can try to do the same for Amazon order. https://cdn0.desidime.com/attachments/photos/608249/original/Screenshot_20200316-171925__01.jpg?1584359399

That’s pretty absurd that you are comparing these things with this virus. Do these things spread if someone gets a shock does it will kill other then other or do an heart attack do the same.
It’s an epedemic I don’t think you have an Idea of gravity of the issue. This thing grows exponentially so you see it nowhere someday and soon it can become huge. Thats what happened in china.
So I would request those who are hardcore beliver of Murphy law(https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Murphy%2...aw) do it for others.

Really
“jab jab jo jo hona hota….”
I thought its used when someone is too much chilled.
And I don’t see people panicking you really don’t want to see that.

We don’t live in China & I don’t think Corona can be considered Epidemic in India where only two deaths are reported in the whole India…

This doesn’t happen for you n me.. <<* Sepsis* >>
Only for those with a compromised immune system*
If detected late…you cannot avoid death for those people..the others with a mild infection recovered without any complications ( Based on the information already available )
https://www.dw.com/en/sepsis-a-common-cause-of-...
But i am confused about one thing…If the people taking immunosuppressant drugs, their immune system will be weak (because of the drugs). In that case how the immune system goes in to overdrive attacking organs…in turn leading to death? confused << As stated by WHO n others >>

I am talking about people getting panicked of dying of Corona…All these people who are getting panicked, they think if they get infected by Corona, they will die even though only two people died in Corona in India…

I have used those examples because it’s DEATH which people are ultimately fearing for…

So it’s totally valid because death is uncertain & can come at any moment…But because of the fear of death, we can’t stop living our daily life…

And as @cocay has mentioned, being cautious & getting panicked are not the same thing…There is no harm in staying cautious but there is absolutely no need of getting extra panicked by Corona…We are not living in China…In that case, all of us would have been panicked for valid reasons…

Yes I agree we should not panic.
And I agree we don’t live in china but that’s what problem is if it reach even to level 3 the no. If deaths will increase rapidly
We all know about our healthcare system do you think it will be able to sustain such situations so it’s better to be a bit more concerned than other countries.
So don’t think because we have just 100+ cases and only 2 deaths we are safe it’s in its early phase we live in very dense societies and it can spread like fire. We are in very crucial phase and it’s the time we can really fight it and stop it.
People are not panicking yet they are trying to learn about the issue that’s pretty good yes there’s rumours too but lot of correct information is there too.
I hope this gets over soon.

Yes, hyperactive immune system can damage organs. This is the exact reason why our body though wants to fight cancer cells but dont fight for avoiding organ damage as per last years Nobel winners.
