Glad I'm not the only one freaking out. I hear people laughing about cornavirus, for me its not joke, I have a slightly weekend immune system, catching cold, sore throat and fever regularly, and am due for another blood test soon, which in itself is stressful and now dealing with this extra burden of possibly me getting infected is quiet serious, it could mean more complications for me if l get infected as my immune system might not be able to fight it off. Having HA, on top of this is making me so stressed out. I tend to stay home most of the time, but husband travels at times and both of my girls are at university, if they bring it into the house it could potentially be life threatening for me. Hopefully the Government here in Australia will shut work and universities down if it spreads and that way if my family are all in quarantine, which l prefer then at least l know we are safe.

Yes it kills me when I hear people joking about it too! I think if I get it that could be the end of me also. I think they should suspend all interstate travel and shut everything down here! No flights at all should be going on right now. They won't do this though because it's all about money! I guess we just have to watch how this spreads and see if mutates into a less serious form hopefully. I think the amount of new cases are super low in China now and most deaths over there were 70+ year olds. I just feel trapped and like I'm waiting for the disease to get into my household and there is nothing to do to stop it since my husband works out of the house. I'm actually really mad at him because he has to work outside the home. I think it will be him who eventually brings it to us! I'm scared!

The amount of people I see dismissing Covid-19 as “just the flu” is concerning. A news site I post on has numerous daily Coronavirus articles and many of the comments are sarcastic or mocking. And those of us who post about our fears aren’t taken seriously. I am all over the place...some days I handle it better than others. I skipped the game the other night, mainly due to not wanting to be in crowds. My state has a lot of cases right now which caused the Governor to declare an emergency. Plus seeing the news of the cancellation of that big SXSW festival is unsettling.

Yeah, governments are scared of losing all their power and countries degenerating into another Dark Age, yadda yadda, etc... I’m not dissing them or their fears, I mean I don’t know anything about economy or politics, but shouldn’t they care more about the people IN the country than the country which is made up of people in the first place?
And it’s pretty scary when you see people in the grocery store HUGGING and asking each other “How are you? not sick yet?” They’re gonna get sick soon if you keep doing that crap!!
