I’m sure you all know about the latest virus going out now. I think of viruses as like the latest craze that comes around every couple of years because that’s how it pretty much happens. Maybe it’s been out but it hasn’t become too big or spread too bad until a year or so later, but either way, it becomes the main talk. This year we have the Corona Virus and everyone is freaking out, but within well means. This virus HAS killed some people, which is devastating.
So why am I not too worried about it?
I feel like a majority of millennials aren’t too worried about the virus. We’ve been through so many other viruses it’s almost like we’re immune. Clearly we’re not and we’re aware of that, but that’s why we take what should be normal precautions, such as..idk…washing your hands? I already practice good hygiene, which is why I’m not too worried about it. It’s insane how people are buying out hand sanitizer and everything, but soap is still in stores and thriving on the shelves??
I’m also not too surprised that something like this spreads. I’ve seen so many people (and I mean customers from my job alone) that just sneeze in their hands, in the air, etc and it’s insane! If you know me in person and see me, then you know I’m already a little “eh” about seeing someone sneeze in the air or near me…and this is pre-virus. I just don’t understand how anyone can not properly cover their mouths or wash their hands…it’s insane.
I’ve also seen people (my grandparents included) practically let this virus take over their lives. No one is going on trips anymore or anything…of course except the millennials that don’t care. I do think you should take precautions and be careful where you go and everything, but don’t let it stop you from living your life. The flu is much worse and no matter whether there’s a virus outbreak at the time or not, practicing good hygiene and sterilizing is always important regardless.
What’s your opinion on the virus? Are you someone who’s more on the worried side or not too much? Let’s discuss!
