This is a very accurate description of the situation.

I find myself thinking of how surreal this situation feels. It almost feels like we are in one of those horror movies and the worst is still to come...

Positive my friend . I still hope for a complete lockdown . The situation really worries me at work, because I meet people at work . That makes me feel like I'm exposed to the virus .

Here in Belgium we got 56 new deaths today . 4 died in our local hospital . The youngest was 32 ...

The situation in Italy and Spain is +/- like yesterday :
Italy + 683
Spain + 656
France + 231

Total from today = 2006 and the day is not over yet !
May they RIP...

The numbers are indeed very worrisome. Makes me wonder why the politicians are so apprehensive about implementing a complete lock down. The safety of everyone should be their first priority.

Stay strong my friend!

The key to this is meeting people.
Their 'servants' and lackeys may be issue..!

Deaths halved in UK yesterday with lock down on, introduced earlier than I thought and the Italy and Spain stats are appalling.
Chinese students are paying around $10k to get flights out of US back home.

"Financial Speculation" I'm pretty sure that's more important than a human life !

Our politicians communicate via Skype only , and 2 weeks ago they said to us people please don't panic ! COVID-19 is an ordinary flu ?!?!
Well....They changed their mind
#piecesofshit !!!

Stay safe and healthy my friend !

Yesterday evening I heard an interview with a virus specialist . They took samples (a viral strain) from the virus and cultivated it . They never saw a virus reproduce so fast in the lab !
He said I don't tell fairytales , so let us talk straight to the facts , a vaccine is the only cure for COVID-19 .
COVID-19 will be among us till the vaccine is effective and that's +/- 2 year !

EDIT : He said also , the virus is actually "SARS-CoV-2" !!!

Today all of them lie on a respiration machine in our local hospital ...Age between 17 and 25 .
Well.................

Just saw this on US national news this morning - UK's PM tests positive for COVID-19....this is crazy.

As of this morning, the US leads the world on the number of positive cases....

The US is about to make it look like we are Verstappen and the world is Gasly at Austria last year. I'm extremely lucky to be able to work from home and live in an area that has been in a shelter in place for a week now.

Update : Don't know with what I should begin with ( in short )

My friends , today at work I was involved in a complicated situation ....
The situation is regarding a colleague at work :
Last monday he told me that his wife was sick . She sneezed and coughed .
At that moment we thought that she had a cold . But he told me in the past that his wife is nurse in our local hospital .

Today while I was talking with him he got a phone call . And it was bad news from the hospital that his wife was tested for SARS-CoV-2 and the test was positive , she has high fever and she is very short of breath and they put her in the quarantine department of the hospital ..

While I saw him panicking . I said to him : Leave the company right now !
Drive to your doctor and request for a virus test !
Note : He has also a cold !

Well my friends . In the coming days , some luck is required on my side...
For the moment I'm fine , tired from work like usual but OK .
If I feel in the coming days the specific virus symptoms . I will try to get the virus test ASAP....
