I understand, people died from this and who knows if and how many will still die. I have family and friends across the globe and I don’t take this lightly. It’s serious, it’s very serious to be exact but we need to remember to stay calm.
Panic will never solve a problem and panic will not help you in making rational- and precise decisions.
Stay calm and take a moment to see what’s going on. The news is the news and it’s not always accurate what they report. Check in with friends and family, get firsthand information regarding this virus, don’t just solely rely on news outlets. Most of them are garbage anyway.
Once you have an insight take a little time to explore what you have and what you can do, meaning; what supplies do you have, food, medicine, water, transportation, defense, security, etc. Yes, toilet paper too.
If you can stay home do so. If not, protect yourself from other people (gloves, mask if it makes you feel better, wash your clothes’ as soon as you get home). Don’t allow people you don’t know (or like) into your bubble.
I can’t predict how long this is going to last or when (if ever) it will be over. But we need to stay level headed and make cool, calm, well thought through decisions.
Check on your neighbors too, they might need help, especially if they are older and/or live by themselves.
Again, panic don’t do no good. Take a deep breath and think a few steps ahead, in case – for some reason – the power goes out (no internet!) and/or the water supply is shut off. Then you really need to stay calm and have a plan if you don’t want to fall victim to mass panic. So take one step at a time but think like 2 steps ahead.
This is a global thing and the smartest people in the world are working on this. I’m 100% convinced we will get a cure for this rather sooner than later.
Many other diseases can and will kill us, this COVID19 is not here to stay. We will prevail but we will have to work together.
Stay calm, think straight and be safe!
