I wonder at how things have really got out of hand with regards to all the catastrophes taking place in the world right now.
How did it all come to be?
It is nerve-wrecking to know that Covid19 has spun out of control, and the situation warrants it to be known as a pandemic!
We have lost out to a crisis that has brought the world to its feet.
It is the 21st century, and we are still struggling with Coronavirus, which was a disease discovered years ago passed on by animals, and now a human to human pandemic~
This is one situation that will be etched in memories across the universe throughout time. It has made history. As scientists, physicians, scramble for a cure to the disease, I cannot but think how restricted our lives have become.
It has become a fearful tragic circumstance, in that, there is the fear to travel, the fear of social interaction, we are instilled with the habit to inculcate social distancing, people are told to keep a 1m distance from those outside of family members. Can you believe that? We are restricted to our homes, people are told to wear masks, sanitize, no public gatherings are permitted – in short, we are confined to our homes with no outside interaction, unless with explicit permission from the relevant authorities.
Expectedly, businesses being badly hit, the stock market is at an all time low, and the idea of a world recession has us shuddering about the future.
When will it end?
I believe this is one situation that has begun as a result of human negligence, and it will only end when humanity takes stock of the severity of the situation, and distance themselves, or heed the 14 day quarantine restriction, so that the virus has no chance to survive or spread. It would augur well to heed all the restrictive measures that are put in place.
Truly, this is a time where compassion and thoughtfulness should take precedence.
I don’t know how things will be tomorrow, the next day or the day after that. We are all living in the present now. Most importantly, we have been woken up to the fact that our freedom to live as we want has been revoked, making us realize how we have, unashamedly, taken it for granted!
Stay home, Stay safe!
