Dean Corrigal of Leisure Travel Vans told Business Insider that between 30% and 40% of emails his company has received come from customers inquiring specifically about the vans’ mobile office capabilities. “It’s a huge amount of first-time buyers sending request emails to us … people that want to work from their RVs are right behind that,” Corrigal said. “I think it’s a huge growing segment, and the longer this COVID-19 thing lasts, the more the RV industry is going to go forward and push in sales.”
A fundamental step in handling an outbreak of an infectious disease is to locate where it originated and prevent any more cases of the disease coming into your community or country. If you can cut off the source, you can devote your resources and efforts to suppressing its spread, and coping with the health and social problems it has created.

In times of plague and pestilence, cities and states often applied it with enormous rigour.
