The AR VR industry massively disrupted by the Coronavirus

These companies are telling their employees to stay home for their safety. So why isn’t the US Government telling people to stay at home for their safety? Here’s why.

A quick snapshot of the headlines by Micah Blumberg

Valve Index disrupted. Oculus Quest disrupted. For the safety of their employees major tech companies like Nvidia, Facebook, Sony, Unity, Microsoft and many more began pulling out of major tech events like MWC, GDC, F8, GTC and many more major event cancellations may be coming soon.

These companies are telling their employees to stay home for their safety. So why isn’t the US Government telling people to stay at home for their safety?

The US Government wants our stock prices to stay high. They are not doing large scale testing because not knowing how big the problem is makes them look like they have it all under control. They don’t care if you go to a big convention and get sick. The US Government doesn’t care if you go to Disneyworld and catch a disease that will make you cough up blood, and if you survive that the US Government doesn’t care if you are not able to ever sleep again without an iron lung or a ventilator breathing for you (for the rest of your life).

Coronavirus News:

At least 3000 dead, 6 deaths in US.

90,000 global cases, cases in South Korea exceed 4,000
Today Mike Pence was asked if he would bring his family to Disneyworld. He said there are no travel restrictions in the US. He’s not saying we should stay home from big events or big theme parks.

What I am saying in this article is backed up by references that you can read below:

The big companies are scared to attend big gatherings. Obvious they care about their employees well being. So why are still going to meetups and events? Do you not understand the concept of exponential infection rates or something? Why isn’t the government telling us not to go to Disneyworld? Dr. Anthony Fauci? Mike Pence? Anybody home at the Whitehouse? Anyone with a brain? #FreeChelseaManning
