Today is Day 3 of Circuit Breaker Stay-at-Home regime. How did you spend your day since Tuesday?
I count the day by the meals taken – breakfast, lunch and dinner. My family was happy when we finished a meal. One meal settled!
Come night, I waited for news from MOH to see what was the number of confirmed cases. Last night we had 142 confirmed cases of Covid-19 infections. The highest single day increase since we started tracking the infection rates. My heart sank. Worst still, there were 72 unlinked cases, meaning that an infected person did not know how he/she got it. Who is carrying the coronavirus and spreading it without knowing it is happening?
Throughout the day, we got news of the latest measures to get people to comply with the spirit of social distancing. This is important because we can comply and not to run foul of the measures. We also read about other countries in coping with Covid-19. It can be overwhelming.
Then we have WhatsApp chatgroups and my contacts have been forwarding all kind of stuffs including videos and news scoop. Some of these were fake news, like the one when someone said that Queen Elizabeth II had been tested positive with Covid-19. That is too blatant and total disregard to forward without confirming the authenticity of the “news”. It is already gloom and we deserve better than to be subjected to fake news.
What we need most is positivity and uplifting materials to help us face this dreaded coronavirus. I appreciate some who have something positive to say, to care and be sensitive to our wellbeing.
My way of coping is to stay in the present. Enjoy the moment like admiring the supermoon Pink Moon early this morning. Enjoy looking at the green shoots of our plant at home. Enjoy the company of my family together.
