Or better know as Chinese Virus has made this the worst of times. It is the first very serious global pandemic that many of us are experiencing unless you are old as the Ark then you were here for the Spanish flu of 1918. H1N1 was not this bad if I recall.
I have seen videos of people fighting over tissue paper. One would think it is a paper pandemic, but no, it is just flu and you can use water to wash your tuchas. It’s not like self quarantine includes not taking showers or washing tuchas. I am convinced that human beings are generally irrational.
Those who insist that the government should not be involved in the market ( it is involved even in those so called free markets through its actions of deregulation) should tell me how the market will correct for idiocy of hoarding hand sanitizers, tissue paper or spirit.
At our office we are putting protocols in place to reduce contact, minimise risk of transmission and other measures as recommended by health professionals. I hope this will keep people safe for the time being.
I have seen people sharing some Bible verse telling them that they should be praying and not observing basic hygiene. I want to suggest that you don’t do nothing stupid and risk the lives of those around you.
There are 4 active cases that have been recorded in my backyard. It is scary shit.
Finally, for those who love data, here is an active link of how the virus is behaving around the globe.
Keep safe everyone.
