Personal doctors, secluded homes, small yachts, private planes, separate hospital reception rooms and monthly supplies of food, medicines and medical equipment. This is how the richest Americans are preparing for the coronavirus epidemic, says The New York Times.
The new coronavirus doesn't know nationality or social boundaries. This, however, does not mean that there are no social boundaries.
Apart from buying the most expensive masks and bypassing queues, the wealthiest Americans are increasingly using private planes, avoiding coughing neighbors behind their backs.
But where can those who are not going to sit all summer in a secluded house in the woods by the Canadian border fly?
As The New York Times has learned, many rich people are not ready to give up summer holidays and simply change plans, refusing to travel to Italy and renting small yachts in the Mediterranean Sea for a long time.
"It 's perfectly rational," Jennifer Saya, president of B & B Yacht Charter, tells me, "Your family remains a small isolated space. You get out of the car, go to the VIP terminal, board a private plane, arrive at a small airport, from where you get straight to the yacht. All this time you are not in contact with people. "
Some went even further. Ben Stein, director of New York 's Sollis Clinic, said one of his clients set up an isolated room at his home with a separate ventilation system, supplies of medication and medical equipment needed to treat coronavirus. She also did not forget about food supplies.
