Covid19 pandemic strikes
Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2(SARS-CoV-2). The disease was first identified in December of 2019 in Wuhan, the capital of China’s Hubei province, and has since spread globally, resulting in the ongoing 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic. This ongoing pandemic has resulted in lockdowns around the globe, fortunately here in Calgary and across Canada this hasn’t happened yet (as of April 14 2020). We do however have large scale closures of non-essential services, social distances measures and a number of people have passed away due to the infection.
Despite the closures and self isolation people seem to be coping well.
Despite the closures and self isolation people seem to be coping well. Only a small amount of selfish people are ignoring social distancing rules and with group gatherings over 15 banned the rapid spread of Covid19 seems to be slowing. However, Covid19 will no doubt have a lasting effect, with local tourism, hotel bookings drastically reduced and many events cancelled for the foreseeable future. One may wonder about the impact of Covid-19 and how people are coping with it. We read many different stories. Some are seemingly confused about the difference between self-isolation and social distancing, and how and who should do it. There are also issues related to anxiety people face every day, and how that can be managed, and the necessary adjustments required while in lockdown during the Covid-19 outbreak.
Our world has changed significantly
With Covid-19, our world has changed significantly, causing profound fear and anxiety for many people around the globe. The pandemic, according to Bill Gates, has proved again that we all are interconnected and that this disease treats us equally, the rich, the poor, the famous and celebrities alike-irrespective of religion, culture and country. The global uncertainty and its impacts are challenging. So, stay home, maintain physical and social distancing, and stay connected. No need to panic – Stay Safe Calgary
