How Scary Is This Virus
I see a lot of people have already blogged about the Corona Virus today.
This virus has well and truly made a huge impact on peoples lives and it is rather scary how quickly it is being spread and the amount of countries that are now in lockdown because of the impact.
I had a conversation tonight with my son about people panic buying and he came out and said that they will be bringing back ration books like they had in the war if things keep going on like they are.
I am just waiting now for the news that the UK are now in lockdown as each day we hear of more and more things happening and events being cancelled. My son is part of a Musical Theatre group who were due to put on an end of year show next month and it has now been cancelled also.
I know there are people out there who believe they are just scaremongering, my husband being one of them but we need to listen to what they are asking us to do and help each other and the family and friends that we love and take action if you are not in agreement with it. It is being done with the best intentions to stop the spread and keep people safe.
Don't grumble when you are told you can't go to the pub or to meet your friends in the restaurant or that your football has been cancelled, even though it is a pain. What is worse, losing a family member or friend to this virus or missing a night at the pub or a Saturday afternoon at the football. I know what I would rather have, that's for sure.
I personally think that the quicker we take heed and listen to what is being told and acting on their advice the more chance they have of slowing down the spread and possibly getting back on an even keel.
Always remember to make sure you are washing your hands or using hand sanitiser if you are not able to use soap and water.
For anyone who doesn't know me by now, I have a warped sense of humour and I found this image the other night. I do not want to take away the severity of this virus and the impact it is having but I thought this was funny.Sorry everyone but this just appealed to my sense of humour.
Enjoy the rest of the week everyone and keep yourself safe.Goodnight and see you all tomorrow.
