Diane is a 72 year-old woman who has COPD, heart failure, depression, and anxiety. She’s proud to live on her own in an independent living facility for the elderly in the middle of the city. She was planning on housing her grandson, Brian, after graduation from college until he could find a place to live but she doesn’t think that is a good idea anymore given everything that is going on with the coronavirus madness. Over the last few weeks, she’s watched the news carefully, becoming more and more alarmed as the case numbers are rising. In particular, she’s heard that people who are older and have other health conditions are more at risk, and she is reminded of her late husband, who passed away last year of complications from the flu. Making things worse are her concerned children, who live across the country. They call her and plead that she isolate herself at home. But she can’t--she doesn’t have any help, so Diane walks to her local supermarket to stock her pantry and purchase what she has heard to be necessities, including cleaning wipes, masks, and soap. At the store, her heart pounds. The home supply shelf is completely empty.
