Why have we been so gripped with increased anxiety, fears, paranoia, and worry over the COVID-19 virus?
Earlier this morning, I received an email regarding a “quarantine party.” The event description read: “We are young people who don’t take this BS quarantine seriously. Let’s crowd in this condo and have a good time. I promise, you won’t get sick.” I am 21 years old, healthy, and, subsequently, very unlikely to succumb to the coronavirus. I could party. I could attend that event and laugh in the face of all the talk about social distancing. Odds are, I would be totally and completely fine if I did so. But I won’t.
I said yes, you will not because it is the safest most correct thing to do. He say’s correct.
I then later saw A post that filtered around as did spark some outrage, over what Gabe Martell Ocs had made. His lack of caring, understanding and said empathy was no where to be found. His post is what got me when I read it. Calling people pussies and slamming them for being afraid and being cautious, was horrific in my mind and the said minds of others.

Our Grandfathers Who Stormed The Beaches of Normandy , with roughly a 27% survival rate, to fight Tyranny: would come back here, now , and see all of you crying like some babies about some flu with a 90+% survival rate??!? They’d be ASHAMED! I’m ashamed of you! They’d pull their bootstraps up and go out and FIGHT!
Not only was this guy incorrect with his said mathematic figures, but also incorrect about the fact people are worried. They are worried and so have a special right to be. It is people such as this that will make this virus continue for along long time, because they are either stupid or arrogant or both.
Since the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced that Americans should begin preparing for a likely coronavirus outbreak in the US, panic around the illness has escalated. Since December 2019, when the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) was first discovered in Wuhan, China, it has infected more than 168,000 people worldwide and caused 6,610 deaths, most of which have been in China and Italy, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).
