San Francisco, USA

 

COVID-19 Has Arrived

For the most part, US was relatively removed from the coronavirus outbreak in China. Despite a small number of cases, most of them related to recent travel to China, officials assured people the risk of low epidemic here was low. When the case of Solano County patient was discovered, she has no history related to traveling and has been carry the disease undetected for days, it was a sign that our perceived immunity is over. Within two weeks, cases of virus inflections were reported all around Bay Area. Events, businesses and schools were scrambling with closures. Everything exploded. Now we are in full fledge pandemic.

I have been making all the hygienic and health precaution's, keep educating myself about the science of the disease and its social impact. It becomes obvious to me that the virus will soon touch all of us. Many of us will get sick. Some people will die. It is still inconceivable to think it will kill people we know, or even you and me. But there will always be a possibility. Vigilance is important. Young and healthy people have lower risk. But we shouldn't make too much assumption. No one is fully immune.

Seeing the inevitability of the spread, I feel strangely at peace. I stopped stressing out every time when there was a new case reported around us. I know the trajectory and how things are going to go. This is the time of a global pandemic. I want to live through it in the best possible way.
