    Isn’t “somewhat worried” lesser than “worried (and “worried”)?

    I am definitely worried about people's understanding of economics and also, how to set up polls.

    It's already happening... worrying about it is a waste of time and energy.


    Also, for the record, I'm much more concerned about what's going to happen to the hospitals and health care workers if we aren't able to flatten the curve. IMO this should be society's #1 concern right now.

    yes. I just found out my salary will be cut by 10 percent. I'm scared I won't have a job in a month or two.

    i agree. worrying is a waste of energy, but we are social creatures and we care about each other, so I can't help but worry.

    this thing could potentially devastate the economy with everyone out of work, businesses shut down. hospitals and staff overrun and overworked. it isn't good for anybody. 

    i think what the market is doing is correcting. it was going too well for too long. kind of ironic that it has lost everything that it gained under trump though.

    I'm more concerned than worried.  I'm concerned that at 68, once this is all over, I'll have to try and reset my body back a few years to keep working and make up the loss of time/business.

    I'm also fascinated by seeing so many here on an AMT thread who are seldom if ever seen here.  Braves souls venturing beyond The Porch, welcome!   (Don't forget to don your armor and keep the hand sanitizer handy.)
