How do you know Covid-19 is like a flu virus? I listened yesterday to an epidemiologist explaining that Covid-19, being a coronavirus, could be more similar to MERS, a similar coronavirus that transmits from camels on the Arabian peninsula in 110 temps without a problem.

Virus is a packet of genetic material unlike bacteria which is a complete cell.   Hot and dry and UV is a good way to eradicate them.      This  virus is inactivated by humidity rather than dryness.   I do not understand the chemistry behind that.     

Transmission will slow once people are regularly outside and have the windows open at their residence.

I understand what a virus is, the point I was trying to reiterate from this epidemiologist was to not count on the warm weather mitigating this one. I hope it does, and I get your point of folks being outside more slowing the spread of this.

It is not inactivated by the humidity. Humidity just does not allow the virus to go very far. When someone coughs or sneezes and humidity is high, the droplets from the coughing or sneeze combine with droplets in the air then become heavy and sink to the ground instead of getting inhaled by someone else.

Thanks again to everyone that has responded.  I've already backed out on her and terminated the contract over this.  It doesn't look like she's in a hurry to relist.  The response to this virus is making me nervous to continue at this point.  It could really hurt me if the market drops over this.  I'm not sure it will, but I think I'm going to play it safe for a few weeks and see what happens.  It might just be a blessing that she did this to me.  It's a tough decision because I feel this is the right place for us.

As for the virus...  I think it's been here in Michigan longer than they think it has.  I was deathly sick this January with the same symptoms.  My two daughters had something as well, but not as severe as what I went through.  Makes me wonder if it was covid-19.  It lasted about 5 days for me.

I will just throw out there, that viral stuff with cough fever and runny nose has happened every winter for my 30 years as a pediatrician,  every winter.  most viruses have symptoms for 5 to 7 days.  if the inflammation stays you may cough for 6 weeks, like mycoplasma we called walking pneumonia in the old days.  stay well!  good luck with your property search!

It sounds like this is your ideal place.  I wouldn't be too quick too eliminate it from consideration.  She did not act in good faith; but what if she had?  What if she had disclosed before your offer that she had already contracted for some walnut harvesting?  Would that have significantly changed your offer?  I would be very cautious to make sure there aren't any other surprises but I think I might go ahead.

When I bought my small acreage we only looked at three properties on one weekend.  Once we saw this one we knew it was the one.  Any other looking would have just been comparing back to this one.  That was done in 1984 and we have never regretted it.

Good Luck,
