Corona Virus Panic
The Corona Virus Panic
The residents of New York are experiencing a CORONA VIRUS panic. The contamination is spreading faster than wild fire. Some schools started closing for a couple of days, hoping that they can control the spread of the virus but have extended the closings for a week instead.
My grand daughter came home for Spring break from the University of South Carolina and found herself staying home and doing her studies online. Her return air plane ticket had to be canceled.
What to Buy to Survive
In order to survive a human being requires water and food. We all know that. The question is what should we buy in order to be able to stay home, and not go out for a long period. What is practical. My suggestion: can products, pasta, rice, and water, also juices
In expectation of a LOCKDOWN people are buying everything available on the shelves of the supermarkets, and drugs stores creating shortages on a variety of products . It started with disinfectants and sanitizing products. I could not purchase alcohol or Lysol. Every one is stocking up on none perishable food items, cleaning products, paper goods as well as a great deal of frozen foods and water. We first ran out of all cleaning products and disinfectants than water, fallow by toilet paper and meat. To my surprise there is a shortage of toilet paper. Yes you need paper but the most essential products are food and water.
The shelves are restocked during the night. The night crew will clean, rearrange and rotate the shelves. At 7am in the morning the parking lot is already full of people doing shopping. And by 2pm the shelves are almost empty again. The store is having difficulties keeping up with the demand of staples. So as of Monday, March 16, the store hours are changing from 7am to12am which are the normal hours to 7:30 am to 8pm until further notice.
This is generally to allow the associates to replenish the store shelves to its full capacity.
On the other hand besides being concern for my family and friends safety I have been wearing a mask to protect myself. I have been praying that this nightmare to pass and be over soon. I have to work and being a cashier puts me at very high risk since I am in contact with so many people. And also my age puts me at a higher risk as well.
Mayor Bill de Blassio has closed New York City schools for two weeks. Thank God for that. My daughter gets to stay home with the kids and I will stay in my house except when I have to work.
I will be very happy when I master my Wealthy Affiliate training and get the choice to work from home if I need to.
