No toilet paper, no canned foods, no milk nothing.

Y'all, don't panic buy, get enough and leave for other people who really need it. Plus there's a chance the foods is going to expire before the pandemic hits it's peak so *get enough, dont be selfish*

0:45 Just to be clear, Coronavirus is the class of virus. SARS-CoV-2 is the name of the virus. COVID19 is the disease it causes. I think it’s fine to use any interchangeably in conversation or even in documentation (we all know what we mean) but in an educational video - would be good to be clear of the nomenclature. Love the work otherwise!
