Think about the times that you’re forced to spend time with your family. Christmas and Thanksgiving are the main culprits. And they’re a real treat. You’re shut in with everyone. People are getting cabin fever and getting on each other’s nerves. The little things people do can suddenly seem so fucking irritating. Like breathing.
Our story begins on March 19, 2020. The setting: James S. Brady Press Briefing Room in The United States White House. Our speaker, President Donald Trump speaking about the Coronavirus and the steps being taken as we move ahead.
My Nan died when she was in her eighties a few years ago. Reflecting on the thirty or so odd years I spent with her; I wish I took the time to learn every single stitch in the tapestry of her existence. Like most people of her vintage, she lived a fascinating life peppered with experiences most of us could never comprehend.
I know everyone is on edge since the first signs of COVID-19 but now we see it everywhere. Instagram, Facebook, Google, Grocery stores, Everywhere. Although we have to tolerate it you shouldn't let the virus scare you, yes it can be scary but as long as you and your family stay clean during this time it can help reduce your chances of gaining the disease. Yes the disease can spread either way but reducing it lowers your chances so please be precautious during this time. I know most places are closed during this time and you are lonely or your family is driving you insane, but you can still take care of yourself during this time.
I am not in qaurantine, and I do not have the virus. However like many, I am going out of my mind with boredom. Normally I am doing therapy for my mental health outdoors, but all the places I use including leisure centers are shut. I also have a condition that means I have to socially distance myself. This is really difficult, because in the thrall of severe mental health problems many years ago, it took me a long time to socialize again, and isolation became my best friend until I learned that my world was safe to go outside again. Recently I was restricting myself to visiting shops and going shopping in the car, but now I find myself bound to my home and my garden for quite some time so that I can protect myself from the Corona Virus. In fact it is crucially important as I am in the early stages of pregnancy and I have a health problem which makes me vulnerable. It was Mothersday yesterday, and my Mum is distancing herself because of her own condition. Its not where any of us chose to be, but it is really important to protect ourselves and others, particularly those who are vulnerable from the virus, which as we know, kills people too. However, it doesn't mean that we all become hermits, it means we stay safe and protect others who may be extremely vulnerable too.
Ok, what the fuck is going on? People have taken leave of their senses. Their good senses that allow them to treat all of humanity with respect or at least civility. That flew out the window in the past two weeks. I have seen people's behavior get exponentially worse as the days go by and America finds more and more cases of coronavirus, but really...what the fuck?
The situation of coronavirus started in Wuhan, leading a total of more than 308,000 citizens affected across the globe, with more than 81,000 being across China, more than 53,000 being in Italy, and more than 26,800 in the States. For the past couple of months, the situation had led to global attention, and countries had taken various measures to combat this virus. On the other hand, according to Forbes, President Trump, being anti-Chinese, even labelled the coronavirus as "Chinese virus," saying that such term is "not racist at all." However, there has not been a definite evidence that such virus came from China. It is still yet to be discovered.
A question that many people never think about, is whether or not UV rays can be harmful through glass. If you're sat by a window feeling the sun on your skin – does risk causing sun burn or other damage? Perhaps you're sitting by a window as you read this right now; are you in danger?
The growth and productivity of an organization highly depend on its workforce. In other words, employees are the strength and backbone of an organization.
