I currently have a bit of a cough and sneeze. Unlike what appears to be half the world, though, I have not assumed I have Coronavirus. Having a bit of a sneeze at this time of year is nothing out of the usual, and even if I do turn out to have this new virus, I would not automatically assume it was a death sentence. I would do the logical thing, stay calm and heed the appropriate medical advice. What I can’t understand, though, is how everyone seems to have suddenly lost their minds over this bug: doctors are currently advising that people should be unafraid of contracting it as it would help build up herd immunity; but online I’ve come across people calling that outrageous, and claiming that it means the authorities want to leave people to die.
It really is laughable how worked up people are becoming over this. According to the advice, most will only be mildly effected, yet everybody seems to suddenly think it is the worst thing since the plague. For my part, I’ll chill out and carry on with life, just as I always have. When you lead a life like mine, you realise that there are far, far worse things than a new bug named after a weak, tasteless larger.
