Coronavirus is a worldwide pandemic. It’s bound to get very emotional reactions from people who are scared. That’s normal. People have different ways of reacting to the news and some are very prone to emotional outbursts.
There are, however, a certain group of people who engage in behaviors that are irresponsible, like to spread misinformation, and basically make everything worse for themselves and everyone around them.
There is a new trending word for them now; it’s Covidiot.
You can stock up supplies that you need but leave something for everyone else.
You can socialize with your friends over social media but keep your visits to a minimum and big gatherings are a no-no.
You can choose not to panic but do not start acting like there is nothing going on and getting other people sick; this pandemic is real and dangerous.
You can choose to engage in any and all kinds of spiritual healing you want but do not usethem as a replacement for actual medicine.
You can choose to be a bit skeptical about the news coverage of the virus but do not try to peddle weird conspiracy theories, like how the virus was made in a lab as part of some Zionist-American-Chinese Armageddon project.
The Coronavirus is a huge problem but it’s something we can overcome together. Please be mindful of others and do your part to keep the virus from spreading.
