At what point do we label the Covid - 19 virus a SHTF event ?

Mass panic, food and medical supply shortages, severe economic decline, sudden large-scale layoffs, hoarding, govt. mandated business shutdowns and activity restrictions, non-critical healthcare shutdown, national guard activations, sick, dead, and dying people around the world, all with no end in sight. In answer to the OP's question, I'd say that point has been reached...
Yeah sadly, I think I have to agree. Not TEOWAKi or anything but the economic effects are already severe.

My daughter had an accident a few days ago and I just spent a few nights in Randall's Childrens Hospital with her. Over the past few years I have spent quite a bit of time there with my oldest son. Things have changed there quite a bit in response to the pandemic. Temperature screenings and questions as soon as you walk in the doors. They are using resources sparingly. Movement and visitors are limited. Big tents in front of the e.r. entrance. My daughter needs a tube removed in a week. Rather than us going in to have it done, they gave us the supplies and we will do it at home over Skype as the doctor guides us along. This coming week they do not want anyone there who doesn't NEED to be there. They are preparing to get hit hard with covid-19 patients. I think that the s will htf very shortly.

Don't Panic!

The smartest man in the country thinks the easter bunny is going to cure all this.

yes we are in the poo, deep. Went to safeway yesterday at 6am after work. No tp, but plenty of meat! Hit the managers clearance, walked out with ten pounds of top sirloin 50% off. Threw most in the freezer, and cooked one up with mushrooms, onions and butter. People are too focused on the wrong stuff. Good protein will help you heal, fight infections and provide energy.

had t.p. already, all those threads in the past asking what to stockpile, I would put t.p. on the list.

The economy is so screwed right now, there is no telling what will happen.

My upper is on the way, got enough ammo for a few firefights. Pretty confident I can ride this out.
Survived the 70's, survived, Nixon, Reagan, Carter, Ford, Both Bush's, swine flu, bird flu,sars, ebola
Heck I made it through three marriages, contagious hepatitis, a nasty lower intestinal tract infection, a couple of vehicle rollovers, lots of broken bones, knife wounds, bar fights, and more bubblegume I can't remember.

BRING IT ON!

We have a crystal ball into the future about how this turns out.

We can see what’s happening in Italy, who has stricter lockdown measures than us, and is a week ahead.

We can see what’s happening in China, who has stricter lockdown measures than anyone in the world and is a month ahead.

And we can make an educated guess how we’ll end up, because our leader wants the churches packed on Easter.

All that reminds me about the husband on his dead bed saying to his wife, "You've been with me through thick and thin. Our house fire, our bankruptcy, one of our children dying, the auto accident that left me with only one arm, and a million other setbacks. As I lay here dying it occured to me that you have brought me a lot of bad luck".
