Happy Monday everyone! I hope you are all in good health ;-)You know, sometimes I think the News programs should begin with a health warning, or some kind of warning before they start. Something like, "Warning, the information you are about to receive is completed biased, based on wild exaggeration, misrepresentation of figures, fear and manipulation, and serve to meet our own objectives rather than to inform you of the truth." Maybe one day they will give us the facts and figures in a way that isn't designed to scare us into not moving. Now,. don't get me wrong, telling be the facts and advising them how to be safer is not a bad thing. Nor is suggesting people in high risk areas take extra precautions. The issue is, when one person has the Coronavirus, and then the next day one more person gets it, the media like to report a 100% increase in infection rather than one more person got it. Do you see what i mean!?
So, with all the fuss and worry going on in almost everyone’s minds, or so it seems, this week's QOTW asks YOU what you feel about it. Are you worried about getting infected with Coronavirus? Have you made any changes to your daily life or plans because of it? Maybe you are going on Holiday soon and are considering changing your plans, or maybe you really don't think the risk of getting it is significant enough to do so. Maybe you know someone who as gotten it? SO far I do not know of anyone in my circles that has been infected with it.
I will be travelling to Portugal next week, very exciting stuff! I will be travelling through various high risk zones, so they say. I have to admit, I am a little but worried, but not too much. I think im more concerned with being stopped and subsequently quarantined for however long the authorities deem it necessary... but even that fear is probably highly unlikely to manifest. Remember, every day millions of people are travelling around the world, but almost none of them are being quarantined! I don’t think ill wear a mask, even though many people do I read its not a good idea unless you are ill yourself.. Nevertheless masks are selling like hotcakes, so much so that supplies are having to be limited so that they can be directed to hospitals and not misinformed people. I say misinformed because wearing a mask in a humid or damp location can cause viruses to 'stick' to it, and can actually make things worse. ..
So I look forward to reading your thoughts on this, and related topics of course! Feel free to talk about the Media as much as your own concerns. Share a story if you have one, maybe your children’s schools are going to close, or you've noticed some other changes!? .. but most importantly let us know If yOu Are WOrried?!
