“NC passed law against global warming science, therefore it’s not happening. So I’m ignoring Twitter’s 140-character limit, so it’s not happ”―
This post is not my normal focus, but I feel it is dire enough that I should write about this epidemic called “Corona Virus”.
When I was about nine years old my mom and dad went to London, Ontario to find us a place to live. We were moving because of their new jobs. That day they left me and my siblings with an aunt and uncle. In their yard was a big cherry tree and it was drilled into us not to climb the tree.
My sister and I went against what we were told and decided to climb the tree. On the way up I had told my sister not to step on the same branch with me. She didn’t listen, the branch broke and down we went onto some big rocks at the base of the tree. I ended up with my left arm hanging in a circle.
My point to this story is this, gravity worked, I could have denied it telling myself I will float upwards towards the clouds. No matter how much I deny the science of gravity I will never float upwards.
Over the past three decades the world has experienced the bird flu, SARS, and now the corona virus. It is spreading around the world new positive cases daily, fatalities are ticking upward also daily.
Now there is a new threat beating down our doors, the Corona Virus. It is spreading rapidly, more and more countries now affected by it. There is no vaccination for it and that could be one and a half years away.
Large events where there are large number of attendees have been cancelled. There is even talk that the Olympics could also be cancelled.
It is of utmost importance that we follow proper hygiene, lots of good hand washing with lots of soap and warm water.
Some can deny the seriousness of this epidemic but the science should not be ignored.
So, take care while you are going about your daily routines. Be prepared, have enough stocked up in case there is a blanket quarantine like we are seeing in other countries. KEEP INFORMED!
