This whole Covid-19 thing is frustrating. Mainly because the whole pandemic thing could have been avoided. How? Maybe closing borders sooner, not allowing foreigners into the country sooner. I am healthy and mean to stay that way. When did this thing start? January? I was in NZ. Came back the 1st of February. The airport I had to go through when I got back? LAX. Was I just lucky what with all the Asians there? I know a lot of them were wearing those white paper face masks. And the timing of this thing is just a little suspicious. But then there's always been some kind of virus in an election year. This one, though, has gone beyond all others.
The sadness comes from seeing the unnecessary panic of the masses. Toilet paper? REALLY?! People buying up hand sanitizer then reselling it for exorbitant prices (Thank you Amazon for blocking him). Empty shelves in stores because people believe there won't be any of those items any more. Fighting over goods. One good thing is that many grocery markets are now making the first hour of shopping for senior citizens ONLY.
I confess that I am disappointed in mankind in general. The reactions of individuals says a lot of how selfish people have become. It has become "all about me". My only shopping will be for things I need at the moment, like needles because I am diabetic. It will be interesting to see if anyone offers to be of assistance since I am over 70. I plan on going on with my life and if anyone out there needs help will gladly give it if I can. Oh, and I wash my hands.
