. I'm home. I haven't left since last Friday when I went to the grocery store. I will have to go out again today or tomorrow for a couple of things. I'm mindful of keeping my distance from others. My son asked me if he could run over to a friend's house today. I'm mean, I said absolutely not. I understand it's hard to stay in but it's important for us all.
I social distance by default because of what a med did to me years ago, but I am having a problem getting what I need as I evolved to trying to sleep in the daytime. Even before this fewer places were staying open late I could get to, and now it's even harder. Once a week my wife and I, on Saturday night, did our grocery shopping and then went out to dinner late. No doing that now.
The reason you need to stay 7 feet from humans is not just because of their potential to cough Covid 7 feet onto you. Measles coughs can travel 37 feet because it is a small virus but Covid is heavy and can't go so far because of the spiky exterior that is so useful for it to attach to surfaces and infect us. When you pronounce the F and G sounds saliva is also spit out of your mouth, so keep your 7 feet distance even if they aren't coughing.
My husband is like a caged lion. He is not handling this very well and if anyone is going to break and go out into the public to give us the virus, it's him. I read a funny meme, it was a crime report. It says : robberis: 0, breaking an entering: 0, fraud: 0. Husband and wife fights: 5,923. Ha. We are all locked in the house together. Anyway, husband keeps looking like he is going to head out the door and I'm on him like a nag reminding him he could make us all sick and he has to stay home. Such fun. But other than some essential errands, we are home.
If you can get him to do this program, it will slow him down for 35 minutes then likely will lay him out flat, while he suffers silently with muscle aches for a few days. If effective, repeat as necessary.
They say you only need a pullup bar but I did a bunch of them on the first day which didn't require one.
My city is at a complete lockdown for 21 days as of now, all local transport, shops, organisation and institutes are shut sparing the daily supply outlets only. Local law athorities have been very strict about not negotiating with any one wandering with out a good reason. I go out around my home, almost daily, for once to get groceries and necessary supplies as I don't want to hoard anything. I am being very cautious, I carry a sanitiser in my car and wash my hand at all times. I even got my workout bench and dumbbells home from my warehouse to ensure not stepping out of home for sometime, I was missing my workout for a week, I had to fix this as it was making me a bit unhappy.
I am usually not an anxious person or have issues with OCD. However, I must admit, I got a bit scared from an event lately, I met a friend on 20th March and she sat next to me in my car, we were trying to do some catching up, she told me that her dad returned from Dubai that morning and was advised home quarantine, I didn't think much about it until she left and I went home. I got a bit worried later that day when I read that a lot of people returning from Dubai to India got infected, I checked my temperature quite often for the last couple of days. I just realised I was being a bit anxious!
Considering the population of my country, which off-course is the second largest in the world, our government is trying all possible measures and means to combat any undesirable situation, there are huge quarantine centers being deployed, ventilator arrangements are being made. At this point the official number of people infected is at about 700 but these numbers can go up drastically, if we get to stage 3, community infections are popping up slowly :(
Hi Paxiled. Are we alike? Yes, I guess. Your and my people are dreamers and doers, problem with that is being rebellious, it comes as a byproduct, I suppose.
I was reading somewhere, your president wants to end this isolation and get the economy back on track before Easter, I thought that was impractical, looking at the present scenario.
Great question, how do they get billions of people to isolate? Use force. People are getting a great pasting of their life while it is being recorded and put up on social media. Scare tactics! Is it working? Yea, so far so good.
