PAUSE for CORONA (Covid-19)
Warning & Closures in FFM. Reduced contact for large groups. Yes, this reduces recreational activities and reduces unecessary gatherings in public spaces. Shopping has been dramatically reduced. Nightlife, unplugged. Services and deliveries are starting to show signs of stress and duress. People still go out (shhhhh) but are urged not to.
Self-imposed quarantine is effective and we refer to it as the PAUSE. Its allergy/flu season and this adds to the confusion of the host under their obvious symptoms. As far as we know the “Virus is on board” when you have a sore throat and fever. We also know people sometimes don’t show symptoms at all. Or other stronger symptoms and ailments smoke and mirror Covid-19. We know testing for Covid-19 is slow, 3 days. The ongoing issue with this is at what point do people finally go and get tested? How accessible is, where people can get tested? What is the chances of exposure to the virus while getting tested for the virus? And most of all, how Corona Virus developments are finally reported.
For those of us who are gifted in “creative interpretations,” CONTACT is enough to get it or pass it to someone else and since Covid-19 has not been controlled yet a vaccine is unavailable. All contact with others should be considered with some reduction, hence the “PAUSE.” Self quarantine, as a case of probability, provokes reduced exposure to smother the rate of the passing of the virus to others.
When something changes we will return to the topic.
