The hysteria and anxiety that the coronavirus has impregnated people with is absolutely insane. I’m not sure our generation has seen anything like this (oh wait, Ebola, SARS, Zika, Swine Flu, Bird Flu… never mind let me stay focused). And as the cases of the novel coronavirus infection, COVID-19, increase across the United States my Facebook feed has become annoying AF.
I don’t blame y’all and I completely understand. Even I have to catch myself sometimes like, “girl, you got good common sense… chill.” And while I know it’s more than just wash your hands (although, wash your hands please) I wanna help you find a little peace in these moments of continuously scrolling through emotions and panics on the Internet.
Find you a quarantine bae
Experts are predicting that a mandatory quarantine similar to what we saw in China and what is currently happening in Europe is bound to happen in order to stop the community spread of the virus (since y’all initially ain’t wanna wash your hands or use washcloths). While you’re out there savagely stocking up on toilet paper and ramen noodles send your “Good Morning beautiful” and “Hey Bighead” texts TODAY so that you can be boo’d TF up when quarantine time comes.
I suspect that 9 months from now we will have a new generation of babies. #RonaAndChill
Binge-listen to your favorite Podcasts
Since we’ve become a culture that does not put our phones down, not even to cross the street, it’s super easy to fixate and obsess about Covid-19 given that the topic pervades headlines and social media. And if you’re currently either the person agitated about the lack of response to the virus or sick of people overly responding to the virus you definitely need to just go ahead and delete the Facebook. It’s the ghetto over there.
