Memories of corona

For my future memories feed:

Three months after the total lock-down was initiated.

– One US dollar is 76 Indian rupees.

– Schools have been closed since mid March and are teaching remotely on-line. This will continue for the rest of the school year.

– There are lines / tapes inside the stores to keep people 6 feet apart.

– Restaurants only for home delivery & pick-up.

– Parks, beaches and walk-in places are not accessible to the public.

– All sports competitions have been cancelled.

– All festivals and entertainment events have been banned.

– Weddings, family celebrations and birthdays have been cancelled. Funerals limited to immediate cohabitants.

– People are doing drive-by parades to celebrate birthdays!

– Young kids can’t understand why they can only see grandparents & other extended family and friends on a screen or thru a window if someone visits in person.

– Hugs and kisses are not given.

– Places of worship are closed or online.

– We have to stay away from each other more than a meter.

– Shortage of masks and gloves in hospitals.

– There are fewer ventilators than there should be.

– People are wearing masks, some places even REQUIRE that you wear them to enter! People are even making their own masks for sale or donation to medical facilities!

– Toilet paper, hand sanitizer, antibacterial wipes and anything Lysol or Clorox is in short supply and limited per person…. IF you can even find them!

– Store check outs, pharmacies and even fast food drive thru windows have added plexiglass between employee and customer. Have to reach around or under to pay!

– You can’t find isopropyl alcohol easily. .. supply per person is limited.

– almost all countries have closed their borders.

– Every city has been divided into tiny zones & an instant fine issued for crossing the zone without a valid reason. (Transport workers, Essential services etc)

– No one is traveling for leisure. Airports empty. Tourism has the worst crisis in history.

Why do I post this?

Next year & then every year after, this day will make me remember how world can change upside down in no time and it will be an annual reminder that life is precious & that nothing should be taken for granted. We are where we are with what we have. Let’s be grateful.

This text is anonymous, it’s not mine, but I copied because I want to remember it too.

  1. Oh my gosh, I hate how true this list. I hate dealing with anything depressing and the more I read, the weight in my shoulder increase. But going to save this post too because yeah, one day in the future I’m going to read this and cry with happiness it’s over.

      1. I thrive on isolation having done long retreat! And as I live rurally we are far less impacted than the cities. We still do hand washing and distancing but are free to roam the state.
