As of today’s writing, the global confirmed cases of COVID-19 is 660,173. Unfortunately, the United States leads the way of confirmed cases with 121,489. Why? Because we cannot STAY HOME!
I understand the need to get out, I get it – we ALL get it. But, in order to quickly resolve the contagion and get back to normalcy, the better off we’ll be.
What I’m more upset about is the fact that this country, supposedly the richest country in the nation, hospitals across the nation are scrambling to find masks, PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) and even Tylenol I heard one nurse say! This is totally unacceptable. This just shows how we are NOT prepared for any type of disaster or pandemic.
Right now is not the time to blame or get upset. Now is the time to empower ourselves and help one another. When you do go out to the stores, think of others – the elderly, the hospital workers, EMTs. Show your appreciation by saying thank you to all the truck drivers, store clerks, stockers, etc who continue to work hard and long hours by trying to keep us stocked with needed supplies. Find creative ways to help others who are in need. Check on others as well, via phone calls, internet, etc. Once you’re done shopping, listen and take heed to what your local Governors and Mayors are saying – if they have orders, please abide by them and stay inside! We ALL want to and are tempted to go out and about, but actually, where are you going? Most businesses and offices are closed – there is no need to GO anywhere!
I hope everyone have their sanitizers as well as your vitamins to keep your immune systems healthy. This I feel will at least help you from having a weak immune system and becoming sick, especially those of us with already underlying health issues. Take your vitamins, drink hot liquids, get some vitamin D and C. I am not speaking for everyone but for myself, I have also found that even taking allergy meds (I have been taking since at least 2015 while living in Georgia with their extreme pollen count in the Spring, and continue to take even while temporarily working here in Arizona) to clear the mucus from your lungs/respiratory area, since this version of the coronavirus hits the lungs/respiratory area very hard. Stay, healthy, stay safe and stay at home!
