"Well, we closed all those potential places - mass gathering, etc"

From the moment the President declared a state of emergency, two things happened:

CostCo, Sams, Walmart, Target, and all grocery stores were mobbed. Crowds gathered at the front doors and stormed the aisles when the doors were opened.

At the same time, hospitals became ghost towns. My Niece is an ICU nurse who moonlights in the ER of a 1,000 bed hospital in Central Illinois. She says that even now, the ER is less than half as busy as normal, because all of the people who normally use the ER as a walk in clinic for non emergent attention, and the drug seekers, are afraid to come in. She began to see an uptick in "R/O C19 beginning Tuesday, but the hospital is otherwise well below normal census.

Incidentally, the hospital admin told her she can't wear the N95s that she bought for herself, and that she needs to turn them over so that they have enough for the Doctors and Residents, even though they don't even go in the ICU rooms of her C19 patients. She heard that yesterday, and is currently deciding whether or not she's going to erect the middle finger, and quit.
