there is talk of troops on the streets, and forceful detention of suspects.
Will there be vigilante gangs roaming the streets and breaking into suspects homes and exterminating their threat?
Farm production cease? Transport at a standstill for food deliveries?
Reservoirs cut off? Air in buildings filtered and rationed?
Schools become a thing of the past? Education curtailed? Physical jobs non existent?
Whatever happens .. this mass over reaction is going to change the world forever.
Too many zombie films, too many vampires and werewolves .. all fictional stuff meant to scare us into spending more at the box office, or over the internet, and increasing the influence and power of the media. The world leaders having to follow suit with announcements of national emergencies and finger pointing at the sources of infection liability.
There is a real danger from any virus threat, of course, .. but not as much as from planned panic.
Perhaps I have got this all wrong … after all, that old guy I used to see walking the towns and cities with `the end is nigh` plackard .. is well, not there anymore.
My personal reaction .. which is what this thread is supposed to be about, (for anyone to post their personal experiences of the virus threat) .. is one of utter shock .. at peoples reaction .. over reaction rather.
If the virus is a deadly as its supposed to be .. then all these plans, phases of operations, security measures etc, will be of no avail, .. so there is actually no point in pursuing them. The virus will not be controlled my man .. but by nature.
as it is too quick for a man made serum or cure.
Dying to get back on yer bike?
well .. go for it.
might as well.
Whatever happens, genuine best wishes to everyone .. don't panic, but just carry on.
If you really want to self isolate to save the planet, please do.
But remember that it was only recently that we were all going to save the planet by not buying a plastic shopping bag.
I just hope it all ends soon … er, so to speak.
