Corona Virus and Toilet Paper?

in #coronaviruslast year (edited)

The first thing I thought of when I heard about the Corona Virus was to go buy massive amounts of toilet paper. But when I checked several stores I found other people had the same idea and the shelves are empty.

In actuality I find this behavior bizarre and perhaps foolish. It shows how much power the media has on people and how fearful many are. In the USA they have identified 1000 people that have tested positive for the virus. They say this virus is 1% lethal. So out of the 1000 ten people probably would die. Flights cancelled, people making a run on the grocery stores and I see family members not even hugging one another but giving fist bumps.

I took this photo in Virginia where it seems I am stranded for the next 30 days because of flight cancellations.

I googled how many people died of the flu in 2019. 30,000 people died of the flu! I see on EBay people selling a package of toilet paper for $95.00 US! I have noticed over the years so many predictions and so many viruses and flus. People are reactionary and this is based on fear.

AVION FLU

I do believe in common sense when it comes to these things. Proper hygiene should be a way of life, not just when there is a scare. We have to realize the media is selling news and most agencies don’t care about anything but the ratings.

This morning I was supposed to be flying to the Philippines to reunite with my family. I purposely did not fly through China or use China Air for my flights. This, along with proper hygiene is my defense against the virus. No fear, no worries! I would arrive in Manila on Saturday evening then flying to my destination in the province where we live. The president of the Philippines has closed off all domestic flights and travel by sea for a month starting on the 15th of March. My flight was booked to arrive before then. All set, I am ready to go!

This morning at 1:30 AM I got a message that when I arrive in Manila I would be required to go through a 14 day quarantine. So I would make it to Manila, but still not make it to my family for 30 days.

Cancelled flights, no hugs, economy tanks, schools closing, work cancelled and more over fear and probably not nearly what people think is going on.

I will not live in fear! This is my way! How about you?

Hello my friend! :D

There is a lot of misinformation out there and everyone has an opinion that they feel is based on "facts" that they've heard. Unfortunately a lot of the information is false or half-truths and the rest is just shock and awe reporting and not just from journalists.

I know that we've supposedly only had 1 death here in Canada so far, unfortunately I'm also positive that that number will climb much higher in the coming weeks/months. Unfortunately those that didn't bother to prepare at all, no extra cans of food, no alternate power source, etc... are the ones that call those of us that try to store a bit extra for these types of things crazy, but those same people are going to come looking for some of your extras once they're out of their own.

I hope you make it home safe and sound, even if it's a bit later than anticipated, it's better than possibly being/getting infected and bringing it home to your loved ones. :D Of course, everything in my reply is my personal opinion. :D

God bless you and your wonderful family. :D Have an awesome day my fabulous friend! :D

So true! I am all for being prepared. Out of wisdom not out of fear. God bless you dear sister.

Exactly. :D If you prepare, even a little, you don't need to fear and panic, though I expect were all going to worry for a while. :D

I've made peace with God and know He's with me so I'm ready if it comes to be my time to die, I look forward to the pain relief. :D

God bless. :D

That's not much good being delayed. Still I don't see how 14 day's quarantine stops you for 30 day's?

If I was allowed to go all of the way home before the 15th then quarantined, it would be 14 days. This would quarantine me in Manila and no flights after the 15th. No new flights until the 15th of April. Stuck in Manila for 30 days.

But the end of all things has drawn near. Therefore be sober-minded and be sober unto prayers.(1 Peter 4:7)
