My anxiety on this pandemic is at a high level. It has come to the point that I am feeling that it is only a matter of time before we all get infected.Continue reading “It’s All a Matter of Time”
Things are starting to get back to normal here. The community quarantine has been partially lifted. Almost everyone is allowed outside, except for those considered to be vulnerable – the minors and the retirees.
As a bit of a background, during the quarantine period, I have been part of the workforce allowed outside. We have work on a shifting schedule. One week I have work, one week I don’t. While it has been terrible to the routine – it was sort of relaxing.
Tomorrow marks the start of a more lenient community quarantine measure in our country. I don’t know if that is a good idea, but at least more people will be able to work and get on with their lives.
The virus infections seems to be under control. Probably.
Remember when time stood still,
Nothing going on, you feel
That the days brought you no thrill,
All you got is time to kill.
Without a care of the world around you,
Enjoy the warmth of a fresh cup you brew,
Those simple, ordinary days, who knew,
Would change because of a worldwide flu.
An enemy hidden from the naked eye,
One wrong move, all may go awry,
Yet all’s not lost, the end we defy,
Though the solution in short supply.
Heroes rise in time of turmoil,
Sacrifice to win, they toil.
Fallen to this deadly coil,
Rest beneath the cold, hard soil.
All of us must do our part,
Stop the foe with all our heart.
The little things can be a start,
Stay at home, the spread we thwart.
When the rains stopped; the clouds clear.
We’ll look back upon this year,
On times of peace we hold so dear,
Before the world has changed here.
To help fight the spread of COVID, staying indoors, and away from human interaction is the best we normal human beings can do.
Our work has been on rotation running on a skeletal workforce, and last week was my scheduled off days.
On the evening of March 22, 2020, my wife’s grandmother passed away. Amidst the enhanced community lockdown and Coronavirus pandemic, the situation was not only hard, but it became quite an ordeal.
People so few.
Shops closed early,
All’s quiet, barely.
It’s what they say.
Help fight the fight,
In’s the right way.
Supplies are low,
Store shelves empty.
We’re in the shadow
Of something deadly.
End of the world?
Nope, just blips,
That man’s been hurled.
We will endure,
We will survive,
You can do it,
Cheer up, and strive.
Hello everyone. How are you all doing?
To control the pandemic, our government declared a community lockdown. Cool. I can stay at home, yeah?
For an introvert that can spend hours at home, indoors, that is not a bad news. However, I still have to go to work this week, mainly because I am in the government sector, and my work deals with necessary documents and paper work. The good news is that I am not on the front lines, and that there is no documented infection in our city. The community lock-down is more of a preventive measure to curb the spread.
With the rise of the issue on Covid-19, I stumbled upon this interesting tweet/video from Max Brooks
And it got me thinking – we should really be more concerned about the people who are more susceptible to this disease. Sure, we may be strong and healthy, and the likelihood of us dying from this disease may be low – but what about those who aren’t?
If us prancing around the place going from person to person is actually helping this disease jump from one place to the other – then we should really do our part. Limit our physical interaction with other people. At least it will slow down the spread long enough for us to be able to develop a cure or at least make human civilization’s immunity to it strong enough to make it as ordinary as the common cold.
Just because you are asymptomatic (not showing any symptoms) does not mean that you are not a carrier.
Stay safe, everyone, and have a nice day!
