The news anchor keeps repeating a question about the ♬ Feelings!!! ♬ of the young man who survived the Coronavirus. I get it. That’s actually important in that people will surely fail because of the feelings they are not used to having. This guy has a good bit of balance and common sense about him and integrates the feelings-inquiry with great advice about how NOT to break a self-quarantine. I think that it’s well worth the listen. It’s very wise what he says about keeping oneself busy by reading books not yet read, learning new languages, and NOT panicking.
Meanwhile, here are some very useful maps you can use to rid yourself of the fear of the unknown regarding geographical locations of cases. The second link below is extremely well done with the interactive map. You can click on the red dots to get numbers of cases in that area, etc.
Meanwhile, keep up on cancellations of gatherings in your area. The K of C, for instance, is going to try to go ahead with the Fish Fry in Hayesville this Friday evening, even though it was actively suggested that councils reconsider doing any kind of face-to-face get-together. But I’m sure that will be the very last get-together for quite a while. And, it’s a day away. We will see. Things are changing by the hour.
I myself am checking with the International Conference of Police Chaplains coming up which is a number of states away at a very international hotel which has itself been closing down entire hotels in entire countries around the world…
Anyway, it was suggested that you don’t do panic buying of supplies of food and soap, but that you absolutely do buying of supplies of food and soap enough to last you a number of weeks if there are quarantines of towns and villages. But no panicking.
