Far too many people are overindebted and unprepared for anything as disruptive as this. Then again, most people who live in an earthquake zone aren't ready for one of those either (except more of them may have an abundance of toilet paper inventory now, compared to a month ago ).

This debate is about who should bear the costs of all this. The first answer was "the Government".
Now the realization is dawning that Governments can't possibly indemnify or save every person or company. Even if those companies go under because they were ordered closed by the government.
So the search widens.
Property owners are an obvious target. After all they are "rich" with an immobile asset.
