Coronavirus shuts down America and the world

I never thought in my lifetime I would see a pandemic like a coronavirus or COVID 19.  People are afraid awhile some are not taking this situation seriously with kids on spring break on Florida beaches. This disease is so deadly and so contagious that doctors are still learning about this disease.  Meanwhile, America and the whole world have shutdown causing loss of jobs and slowdown of the economy. I hope that Americans take this seriously and that practicing social distancing will curb the spread of COVID 19.  The fear of this spreading and causing death like the 1918 influenza pandemic is scary.  The US economy is taking a hit so the government said they will send direct payments to Americans. Many ideas are being floated around to help businesses keep afloat.  There have to be multiple ideas because COVID 19 can last for months since it's so contagious until a vaccine is found. One idea is to test everyone to see who has it and who can be isolated until they are better.  Am
