It is her blog. She writes opinions for WSJ and has been a respected conservative voice for decades. She lives in NYC.
She had symptoms galore, finally got tested on March 17. As of March 26, no results. Health portals had dead ends. Finally a phone call to a live person confirmed that there were still no results.
When I read her post it seemed that this was a report from real life, not just statistics, data, numbers, and dollars. And from someone with assets, contacts and experience. An unemployed waitperson would be most certainly be in a less advantageous position, if there is such a thing.
Of course this in NYC, ground zero in the country with the most confirmed cases in the world. Many places are not as affected and may never reach that status.
Maybe someone can chat with Mr. Coronavirus C. OVID, the 19th, a get a feel for “his” plans.
