The Corona Diaries #2 - how the Coronavirus is affecting lives around the world [19 March 2020]

in #coronaviruslast year (edited)

For a few the worst is over, for most it is yet to come.

Lockdowns, curfews, restrictions that would have appeared unimaginable only a few weeks ago.

The world is at war with Coronavirus.

World War C has begun.

Regardless of whether we are on Steem, or on Hive, or on Tron, life is changing dramatically.

Some of us will get seriously ill. Some of us, sadly, will lose loved ones.

The next few months will be tough. For some they will be terrible.

Our platforms provide a space to tell your stories, to share your worries, your fears, your grief.

My aim is to collect together these stories and share them with the world.

This is the first edition of the Corona Diaries in case you missed it...

Please let me know if you are writing posts about how the Coronavirus is affecting you and your family. Post a comment below or message me on Discord (Pennsif#9921).

I am looking for posts about your life and how it is being affected rather than scientific commentary, or theories of where the virus came from. They are important, but not for these posts.

If you are writing Corona impact posts you might also be interested in this contest on TravelFeed...

I am a Canadian blogger, been following you for years, who would appreciate a mention on your posts, I updated just moments ago on the situation in Western Canada which would be a good classification for the demographic of news i have first hand access too.

My mother is a red cross volunteer organization leadership role, she will be giving me full access to any to come red cross information in western Canada if she is called into the field.

A family friend of ours is on the Yokohama Cruise ship, whom was moved to quarantine in a 5 Star Japanese hotel at the expense of the Cruise Line.

The last post on my profile is Coronavirus Weekly Insight for this week, o critiszed the western Canadians governance of the situation by passively enforcing the government mandated lockdown at airports for non canadian residents.

Thanks for collecting stories. I do want to know how the world is being affected by our common foe and I’m glad you’re gathering our stories. Here’s another one I wrote a couple of days ago.

Peace and good health,


thanks.. but I hope there will be some information about this matter that can help.. I will keep on posting about thie virus for sure

Africa isn't prepared for this, and can't even be prepared...

We basically lack every form of preparedness for this, to be honest, the moment corona spreads as much as it did in Italy the world should be ready to loose over 100m people.

The health facilities are way below standard, don't have enough health workers and can't even accommodate up to an average of a thousand.

All we have over here is hope to not get infected.

To everyone out there that has been infected or has a friend or family infected my heartfelt consolation to you.

Thanks for this Initiative. Should be interesting

Thanks for the mention, yes here in South Africa I have just heard that a couple in the next town 25km away came back from an overseas trip to EU and have tested positive.

Thank you @pennsif for mentioning my post.
UPdate he is recovering and still under quarantine but says it's not as bad as the media has amped it up to be. Granted his is healthy (and in his 30's) but he said rest, sleep and fluids(just like ALL other viruses) and getting fever under control is the road to recovery
