The world in going through unprecedented change with coronavirus*, but unless you've been living off-grid in a commune, you know about the new coronavirus, or COVID-19, that originated in the Wuhan province of China and has been making its way to every country in the world.
In the U.S., cases are now confirmed in every state causing a nationwide panic. Businesses have employed disaster protocols, neighborhoods have been self-quarantined, and toilet paper is sold out nearly everywhere. People are even joking they won’t drink Corona beer because they are afraid of contracting the virus.

In short, we can expect a volatile year.
