I hope you guys stay healthy and safe and hopefully this will end soon. Everything is getting canceled (all events, all sports, including @joordanzzz training/games )here too in Canada. But so far most of the jobs are still not very affected in our province BC, as of yet, but who knows.
Right now the schools are having a 2 week Spring Break, but not sure if they will be open afterwards since I hear there are some closures of Colleges and Universities, where of course the teachers will not be working either.
Like I said. Hopefully it's not for too long, but who knows.
I don't think there's a need to panic, but I think that the precautions are good so that we can protect the elderly and those with compromised immune systems. But I agree with you! A couple of weeks where I don't have to get out of the house and interact with people sounds AWESOME!
Where I am nothing much has changed but given how much of an isolated lifestyle that I live that is not saying much in and of itself.
The folks living in suburbs and cities seem to be freaking out and panic shopping which has lead to lots of empty shelves in the stores but I am sure you have already heard that from the news.
The social media sites are assuredly awash with disinformation and some pretty far out conspiracy theories but overall I think that it is just that folks are grappling with trying to 'make sense of things' for their own peace of mind.
Honestly I have not been all that concerned over the virus itself because in the natural cycle of life diseases/viruses arise when a species' population becomes too large. A good example of that is when there are too many deer in an area and things like 'black tongue' emerge and the population gets reduced. I am not saying that is what is happening with this particular virus but it is just how I look at it...as a natural occurrence.
What does concern me is the people here (in the US) are rather selfish and by and large have a sense of entitlement/arrogance and do not deal with deprivation or hardship well and since most folks live either 'pay check to pay check' or at (or below) the poverty line all the upheaval is going to cause folks to grow desperate and behave in a manner that is assuredly going to add more turmoil to a situation that is already rife with fear and panic.
In short it is not the virus that worries me...it is the people.
You and I are very much alike, I've been staying in the countryside this whole time and don't feel very motivated to go to the city. Living out here is a true blessing and its good that you are grateful of it and the Steem community does add a lot of flavor to everyday life 😌
Stay safe and keep that positive vibe flowing out to the world, not many are able to do it right now so its no minor feat!
Keep safe Nina :)
