Facts? What is that?

That broken record or skipping cd -oh right, nowadays that is no longer a thing so the repetition is just another fact to ignore

I am being sarcastic here. We are about 70 days into this. however nothing has changed and it is probably going to get worse. Nobody wants to hear this. I certainly do not. We have to continue self distancing and staying at home. There is lots of propaganda out there that is contrary to this. Ignore it. like a broken record I will just say it again. Please think through all of your actions concerning this virus. Why are you actually wearing a mask why are you wearing gloves? Think about your trip to the supermarket from the very beginning to the very end.

Stay home if you can

I know it’s not fun and you are not happy and you may be lonely. These are tough times. I hope that you are staying in touch with your family and friends using the modern technology that may be available to you. If it is not available to you maybe you could try to get somebody to help you get it.

FaceTime and Zoom have been the pretty much go to ones although there are many others. Basically the idea is to not get sick. Which means you probably need to stay in the house a little longer than you would like.

It’s May 2020 and the danger has not gone away

The scary time continues. Many of us who have been social distancing and quarantined in our homes are starting to really lose our patience. States are starting to “ open up“ and there is in conjunction with good weather, a huge collective desire to bring things back to normal and to go back outside and try to get up lives back. However there still is not enough testing , nurses and doctors are wearing the same mask and gloves for weeks at a time and the numbers of new infections are still going up in many states .

So the numbers do not lie. The skies may be blue because of the reduced pollution and the weather might be nice but there are so many sick people and the numbers are still not going down!!

So the reality does not meet the fantasy. The nightmare is not over. Yes we all want the economy to rebound, however if people are continuing to get sick in the thousands and die in the thousands every day then we have a real problem on our hands.

I guess my message is to any readers is to not let your guard down and do not fall into the propaganda traps. Remember that you are really on your own to navigate this pandemic. There are lots of great news outlets out there that are doing their best to help you and you must really read them thoroughly and make your own decisions. The pandemic does not respond to propaganda and happy sounding Newsbytes.

Just remember that the virus is still being transmitted and it is still undetectable for at least up to two weeks in many individuals, so people are still carrying the virus and you may be infected by the virus. We also do not know much about this virus as far as how easily it is to be infected and how much of an infection will impact our ability to overcome the virus. We are still living in the dark -this is definitely not over yet and we must be vigilant . We cannot let our guard down at this time, otherwise it’s going to go back into the same deep problem and many lives will be lost.
