Covid-19 is behind the door!
Hi everyone, COVID-19 has arrived, it's behind the door. I'm writing from Parma. We have been living with the virus for three weeks now, in recent days I confess that I have never felt it so close and dangerous.
The time has come to fight against this invisible enemy. From today the whole country is ISOLATED, the essential internal services are still guaranteed, but I am sure that if the infection does not stop or slow down in the next 2 weeks, in the next few days we will stop everything. We do not move from home, only strictly necessary trips are allowed, to go to the supermarket or pharmacy or to work for those who cannot do it from home.
Hospitals are collapsing from the exponential increase in daily hospitalizations. So the goal is not to get sick. It looks like a horror movie, but unfortunately it isn't.
The rules for avoiding infection are simple:
- wash your hands often,
- do not touch your eyes, nose and mouth,
- cough and sneeze inside your elbow,
- keep a distance from other people of more than one meter,
- avoid hugs and handshakes.
- avoid crowded places
How long? no one knows !!!!! I look to the future with confidence and optimism.
This is the time to be more focused and committed and devote energy to plan for rebirth at the end of these terrible times.
My thoughts goes to all the doctors and nurses who work constantly to ensure our health, and to them I extend my heartfelt thanks and prayers. What we can do to help them in this war is to do everything necessary to feel good, so even if this scourge has not yet come, try to prevent it and also adopt these simple rules of behaviors.
At the moment, it seems that the only way to defeat this virus is to responsibly avoid contact with other people. You are probably thinking that it is not possible.
Well, until a few weeks ago I didn't think it could get to Parma and instead it's here I'm talking about it and it's real.
So what can you do all the time at home?
The first thing is to maintain an optimistic attitude because sooner or later it will end.
Take the opportunity to forget bad habits and create new ones in addition to those already recommended.
Take back your time and do things that give you joy and satisfaction, take care of yourself and your family.
