Ah yes, I think it was inevitable to talk about this subject. I want to start this post by prefacing that I am not an expert or have any medical experience. I speak about this pandemic as a normal person living his day-to-day life in its wake. However, I couldn’t let this week pass without talking about it. I understand that this topic is already starting to get a bit old, but it needs to be talked about.
I’ll start by saying that, personally, I’m fine. I live in North Dakota which only has one confirmed cased. I’m very fortunate to live where I do with such a small risk of getting infected. I wanted to talk about this disease because of the panic that’s ensued since it was labeled as a pandemic. These opinions are directed at the United States and no one else. After all, China has already taken fantastic measures in order to contain the virus and other countries are worse off–far worse off. In fact, I read this morning that Italy has surpassed 2,500 deaths.
So what should we do? I’m sure you’ve heard in the news to limit contact and to–I don’t know–wash your hands. (I must say, the fact that people aren’t washing their hands is utterly ridiculous) The point isn’t just to limit contact and keep your hygiene in check, it’s to not panic. Since this outbreak has started, Americans have gone into a state of panic. I have a friend who works in retail who snapped this picture.
Shelves completely wiped out to stock our shelves with hand sanitizer and toilet paper. Hand sanitizer I kind of get, but toilet paper? There also have been reports of people wiping the shelves from milk. That’s right, I said milk. Dairy expires unless you’re planning on freezing it. In my opinion, there should be a different message that the media needs to tell us. One telling us what we should be stocking in the matter of a worst-case scenario. Buying perishable foods and not milk and toilet paper. This essentially boils down to get what you need to be prepared, but make sure you’re leaving plenty for others. Stop panicking. It’ll all be okay as long as you keep a level head. I promise.
There’s probably a lot more to cover, but I think you’ll get plenty of that from the media. Remember to wash your hands, stay calm, and make sure there’s plenty of toilet paper and milk. Be kind to the other people trying their best to prepare for the worst. Above all else, be kind to the retail workers who are forced to serve you despite the inherent risk of exposure to the disease.
Thanks for reading and I’ll see you next week. 🙂

Awesome blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it
from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make
my blog jump out. Please let me know where you got your theme.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts about Krystal. Regards
Wow, amazing blog layout! How long have you been blogging for?
you made blogging look easy. The overall look of your web
site is wonderful, let alone the content!
I have been blogging for less than a year. I only recently got into it since I am trying to take off as a freelance writer. This is just a great way to showcase my writing. I also enjoy it quite a lot. I’m glad you enjoy it!
Way cool! Some very valid points! I appreciate you writing this article
and also the rest of the site is extremely good.

Hi there! Would you mind if I share your blog with my twitter group?

Great blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?
I’m hoping to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out
there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any suggestions?
First, thank you for reading! I’m glad you enjoyed it. I would advise using WordPress first. It’s free and then you can get an idea on if this is something for you! If you are still interested after trying it out, then you could try purchasing your own domain and going from there. The best part about having a blog, even a free one, is it’s a way to show off your writing without needing to be published.
I hope this was helpful. If you do make a WordPress blog, I wouldn’t mind seeing what you made. If you come back and give me a link, I’d gladly check it out for you.
It’s wonderful that you are getting thoughts from this paragraph as well as from our dialogue made at this
We absolutely love your blog and find a lot of your post’s to be just what I’m looking

I wouldn’t mind composing a post or elaborating
on many of the subjects you write concerning here.
Again, awesome web site!
Good blog you’ve got here.. It’s difficult to find excellent writing
