Yes, but I did not see anyone ask for a routine in this.
More that people are looking for solutions, or partial relief, in this 
new situation, with quite hectic circumstances.

Does not sound too mad. But basically I see QA and consultancy people 
struggling with the situation, how to handle, help, communicate.

So IMO especially the mentioned unfortunate bugs we had last weeks, that 
were (are) really severe stand in the ways for all those helpers, can be 
seen as an important reason for the concerns, questions, and so on,
