The world is currently reeling. Whether you call the pandemic Coronavirus or Covid-19 you have to admit it has changed daily life significantly. But the important thing to remember is - life has changed, it hasn't ended.
Hard as things may be we will get through this as a species. We will mourn those we lose and hopefully retain this thankful, respectful spirit I have seen from most. Life will AND MUST carry on, albeit in an altered form.
I personally began quarantine before the Prime Minister officially called for the country to stay indoors because I am one of the population with an 'under-lying health condition'.
Being confined, I have had to watch the empty streets on the news along with the outrage of people on social media and have felt as though I am cocooned from reality which may (or may not) be as bad as I imagine.
Be good to each other and stay safe!
