Well, the last few days have been quite similar to the ones before, as you might imagine! Here are some photos which sum up my new little world.
I’ve also definitely been having more “wobbles” and not being able to get to sleep. I see a lot of people experiencing this sort of things so as much as the overriding feeling is that this is a total normal reaction to such a weird scenario it still feels frustrating and upsetting and you want to get control of your own brain back, thank you! Please!
This post was doing the rounds on facebook and it seems pretty succint way of summing up this situation for when I look back on my blog!.
Petrol prices at a record low(£1-02 a litre)
Self-distancing measures on a rise.
Tape on the floors at grocery stores to help distance shoppers 2 metres apart.
Limited number of people inside stores, therefore lineups outside the store doors.
Non-essential stores and businesses closed.
Entire sports seasons halted and potentially cancelled. Olympics postponed a year.
Concerts, tours, festivals, entertainment events – cancelled.
Weddings, family celebrations, holiday gatherings, even funerals – cancelled.
No masses, or synagogue services.
Schools are all closed, some open but for keyworker children only while our NHS staff fight this on the front line.
Teachers teaching online, keyworker employees still going to work everyday and a nation of homeworkers trying to keep the country going. Employees on furlough to keep business safe.
No gatherings, no social events all cancelled. Playgrounds closed and no group sports.
We are socially distanced from one another. Families seperated in isolation. Relationships on hold.
Shortage of masks, gowns, gloves for our front line workers.
Shortage of respirators for the critically ill.
Panic buying sets in on toilet paper, disinfecting supplies, paper towel, hand sanitiser and a whole bunch of foods.
Manufacturers, distilleries and other businesses switch their lines to help make visors, masks, hand sanitiser and PPE.
Factories ordered to make ventilators and hospital bed shortages forecast. Stadiums being turned into hospitals.
They say it started in Wuhan, China at a seafood market. Hundreds of thousands affected, dead, dying, critically ill.
Many have recovered.
This is the Novel Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic, declared March 11th, 2020.
