Every hour the story changes regarding the coronavirus.
As a result, we are experiencing a historical event of which we are all a part. Information is sometimes vague.
But photos always tell a personal story that often media outlets cannot. Many are circulating on social media and I am collecting them.
Please send your photos to include in this growing body of work…
As the world copes with the spread of the novel coronavirus, different countries handle issues differently.
The South Korea market shelves remain stocked
The markets have not been stripped throughout the crisis. Most people are self-quarantining themselves in their homes.
These photos were contributed by Dagea, South Korean professor and U.S. ex-pat Michael Cavada.
He and his wife have been shut up in their apartment for over a month now, going out for about an hour daily in case they need supplies or a little air.
Photos from Dagea, South Korea…
Photos from Parma, Italy…
Another friend, Beatrice Roberti, in the northern part of Italy, Parma, has been dealing with the flu for the last several weeks, watching neighboring communities turn into “Red Zones.” A few days ago, Parma became a Red Zone, too.
The photo below shows the market where tape on the floors designate “social distancing” markers to help people from contaminating one another.
Meanwhile, in the United States, stores are running out of supplies, primarily toilet paper, hand sanitizer, water, and cleaning products, as pictured below in Thomasville, Georgia.
Photos from Georgia, U.S…
Kimberly Kirk, who works for a housekeeping business, continues to go to work daily but sent these photos below to show how the stores are being stripped.

We went back around 230 and was fighting over toilet paper!
I wanted those last two packs of Charmin!
Me and another lady got the last four packs.
Up in Duluth, Georgia, author Kris Harnage Phillips goes shopping today, Friday, March 13, 2020, and encounters many empty shelves, too.
No TP, but I scored napkins, paper plates, and Kleenex! 😁😁😁Kris Harnage Phillips, March 13, 2020
