Us and Coronavirus(February 28th-August 1, 2020)
Social isolation had forced an eerie silence upon them. While fear haunted their existence, one question was at the forefront.
When was this going to end?
I pace the floor worrying about my family. Five months ago I wouldn't have given it a second thought but they all have medical conditions that make it hard for them to breathe as it is. The pictures of the virus look like a big ball with spikes, but I paid enough attention in Biology 1 to know that that's not what it really is. You don't realize how much you remember what you've learned from school until you see something that makes you remember it. The news anchors say that it's only a matter of time before the virus spreads to the East Coast because it's already in California and various states on the West Coast. I'm worried about my biological mom the most because she works in an assisted living facility for the elderly and she has the highest chance of exposure because she's there for a twelve hour shift but I worry about my entire family because I don't want anything bad to happen to them. It's ironically funny that they keep telling us to do the same thing our mothers taught us when we were younger. "Wash your hands for at least thirty seconds. Cover your mouth with your elbow if you sneeze." and the like.
