Life Update!

Things have changed overnight here. Two confirmed cases in my area. Roads are fumigated, cross roads are blocked. Vehicular and foot traffic has drastically reduced. We were in the green zone until yesterday evening. But not anymore.

We wore masks while going out. Washed hands, sanitized groceries before storing, we have taken all the precautions we possibly can even though we weren’t at risk. But that’s yesterday’s news. Stress is at an all-time high. We do not know what to expect. . Did the infected home quarantine themselves or not? We do not know. If they didn’t, there might be a spike in cases.

We are hoping this was just an isolated case. But at the same time, we have to be prepared for the unexpected. I don’t think reading is something I can do now. I had plans to read a book a day. Not anymore. I will be taking a break from blogging. Scheduled posts will be up on their respective dates.

I hope things get better soon. Until next time, Ciao.🙂

  1. It’s the scary feeling..Until recently our city was India’s largest urban setup which was free of Covid-19. Influx of migrant worker has changed everything. Now we have five cases!

  2. Don’t worry, Rekha. I feel sad to say this, but this is the new normal. In my area, there has been two confirmed cases, one after the other, but with a one-week gap between them. So, for 1 week, there were relaxations, but we’re again back to square 1.
    No point in thinking, if the infected people home quarantine themselves or not. In our area, as soon as the restrictions were relaxed, people began gathering in groups and started chatting. Some of them did so without masks. Unless, people start being self-aware, you and I and the administration can do nothing.

  3. Don’t worry. If you have been masked and maintained social distance, keeping hands off your face, and washing them after getting back, nothing’s going to happen. Just safeguard yourself using the simple practical solutions. I heard this very useful slogan which Ive adopted: Be careful, not fearful.

  4. That is very scary Rekha. Now with the relaxed lockdown and people out in the streets, the numbers are going to surge. But now the mantra has moved from lockdown to herd immunity. Take care and stay safe!
