It seems like no matter wherever I’ve been during the past three months or so, I see more people not wearing masks opposed to wearing one. Even in establishments with a policy requiring masks to be worn, there are huge amounts of people choosing not to comply. The brazen non compliance I witness daily baffles me to no end.
Is it just me or are there a whole lot of people walking around playing Russian roulette with their lives? It’s as if they believe COVID-19 doesn’t exist. This comes even after more than half a million lives have been lost to this virus and many more becoming infected daily. Being someone who tested positive and diagnosed with a mild case of Corona, I know firsthand how serious it is and how bad it makes you feel–the fever, nausea, lack of appetite, energy, and not being able to taste and smell anything for fourteen days. Fortunately, my case wasn’t extreme enough to warrant hospitalization. Knowing what I’ve experienced, it saddens me to see so many people taking this threat so lightly.
COVID-19 is real. Please take it seriously by using PPE, social distancing, and complying to the directives posted by public establishments. Continually wash your hands and sanitize your home. Let’s spread the word because I know it isn’t just me who feels this way. Please stay safe!
