It is all we are talking about, whether between you and your partner, friends or family. Facebook and Twitter are full of posts about it, and then there is the news. Yes I am talking about Corona Virus, it has gone mad.
When we first heard
When we first heard about Corona Virus, it was in China and miles away from home. Did we worry – no we just carried on as normal and heard updates from the news. Then cases started to appear from all over the world including the UK. So we then started to take more interest and follow the news a bit more. Talk about it to friends and family more. We started to hear of countries closing borders and isolating. This was becoming serious, and the worry started to set as we heard more and more about it.
I started to withdraw from the outside world as much as I could, as I have a child with a chronic illness. I need to protect her and try to keep this virus from our lives. I also have parents over 70 so again need to try to keep away from the virus.
How do we manage?
We have all seen or heard the advice on symptoms, and what to look out for. but why has everyone gone mad. Instead of being a caring nation, everyone is out for themselves
We have all been given information on how to wash our hands properly. It is quite worrying if we need to be told how to do something we should all do numerous times of the day. But how many of us have sang Happy Birthday twice at least once when washing our hands.
Why is everyone going mad and bulk buying toilet rolls? As far as I am aware even if you catch the virus you will not need extra toilet rolls. Or is there something that I and thousands of others are missing.
Why have we gone from shopping for our needs to grabbing everything in the shops. I popped out this morning for a few things and the shelves were empty. I honestly could not believe it, even the beer section was empty. I have to get certain foods for my Daughter for what she can eat and there was nothing. I wish people would think about what they are buying and stop being so selfish to other people.
I have found a positive
There is a positive to come out of this, more people are working from home, as businesses bring in working from home. Meaning there is more family time as no commuting, time to play games, do family things together.
However long this goes on for, I hope you all stay safe and healthy, but please be mindful of others, some people can not bulk buy their food, for many reasons. Remember to check on your elderly family and neighbours as they are having to self isolate, they may need help with shopping, or other things.
