We are unlikely to go broke (famous last words) and anyway, we can always move in with the kids. We'll sleep in our little RV in their mountain driveway at worst.

Meanwhile, the global insurance industry claims readiness: Coronavirus Raises Insurance Questions But Catastrophe-Tested Insurers Are Prepared. Well, they may extend exclusions, and raise premiums, and fail totally - my last office employer, an insurer heavily covering losses from the Loma Prieta quake, got snapped up and shut down by a German behemoth.

I read that personal bankruptcy filings are skyrocketing while courts are shutting down to avoid contamination. Suppose you file but nothing happens because official quarantine - what then?
