As of now, the coronavirus pandemic is in 162 out of 195 countries worldwide. Our government recently urged us to avoid panicking. I was seated on my couch thinking, how can we not panic? I mean, we are faced by a virus we have not a cure and one whose aggressiveness is growing day in day out.
In every situation, I focus on being positive and even in this case where I found no reason to be positive, initially, I have found one now. Early this morning, 17th March 2020, the united states began its first human trial with the aim of finding a cure to the coronavirus pandemic. This might not mean a thing but it also means a lot. Every journey starts with one step and our one step towards a world rid of the virus has just begun. My question to took these superpower countries remains, what took you so long to begin the trials? I don’t want to sound like a b!tch but come to think of it, what took them so long?
The whole coronavirus pandemic issue has been shrouded in controversy since day zero but let’s not dive there. I believe that the dark cloud is passing. I have one thing to ask my fellow human beings, brace yourselves for this bumpy ride because we’re going to conquer real soon. Follow these steps and I believe we’re all going to see the other side.
Staying safe from coronavirus.
- Avoid crowded locations at all costs.
- If you have to be in crowded locations wear masks.
- Use hand sanitizer to observe personal hygiene.
