If you’re smart, you’re hunkered down and you’re staying home as much as you possibly can. The COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic is estimated to infect as much as 50% of all Americans in the coming weeks and months, and the only way to ensure severely ill people get the help they need is to “flatten the curve.” That means employing social distancing and staying home as much as possible to help slow down the inevitable spread of the novel coronavirus. If we all do our part, we may be able to minimize the number of deaths due to coronavirus infection.

With everyone stuck indoors in the weeks and months to come, we’re going to see our internet infrastructure tested like never before. More and more people will be working from home, attending school from home, and streaming all sorts of entertainment while relaxing. Internet slowdowns and outages seem inevitable at this point, but there’s an easy way to make sure you have a backup plan in the event that you lose connectivity. Amazon is offering awesome deals on 10 different popular DVD and Blu-ray box sets, and you should definitely take advantage and order now so you have them on hand when you need them.
