What day is it anyway? Friday March 27th 2020

Its Friday! Yay! Hoping ya’ll are having a great day!
Mines been awesome so far!
I decided to go to my parents for the weekend! I was planning not to go, but then I got so bored at home, and I was missing my mom. So I decided to go and spend the weekend with them. I got here around 4:30. I spent a bit of time chatting and watching tv with my parents.
Its been 3 weeks since my moms been out of the house. My dad is doing the grocery shopping, and the other things that mom usually does. He’s not liking it but he’s doing it anyway.
I didnt get to take Nitro for a walk today! I was planning on taking him out, but then I knew I’d have to get a taxi home after grocery shopping, and I wasnt sure if they’d take him in the back seat since now with the coronavirus the new law is that you have to sit in the back of the taxi!
So I felt really guilty not taking him out!
My dad said if he feels up to it he’ll take him out in the morning, which will be great for him. My plan is to take him on tuesday again. For an hour long walk. It will do him good and do me good too!
Nothing planned this weekend, other than starting a new book! Dont know what I’ll read yet, but I have plenty to choose from. I’m not short on books!
Well enjoy the rest of friday!
Oh yeah, now the UK prime minister has coronavirus, and prince charles also has it as well!
Ireland has had 19 deaths now, we had 10 yesterday. We have over 1800 cases of the coronavirus here now.

My sister and coronavirus

My sister works as a health care assistant. She goes into peoples homes and cares for them. Last week she started working with a new client, and, today her job called her to tell her that the client in question was in contact with someone who had coronavirus.
Needless to say my sister is very scared now. She was so stressed out when she came over to my house. The girl who called her from her job, wanted to know if she was happy to continue going in to the lady, as she’s showing no symptoms, of course, my sister said that no, she wasnt comfortable doing that. and she wouldnt continue to go to her house and work with her.
They told my sister that the lady will be in the clear once march 31st rolls around, if she still hasnt shown any symptoms. I really really hope my sister is going to be ok! I hope she doesnt have it, because she’s been in contact with me, with our parents, and with her own family and her other clients from her job.
I am very anxious now, and so worried!
I do not want to catch this virus! And I dont want any of my family members to have it either especially my mom!
Please pray none of us have it!

But there is a huge backlog of people waiting to be tested, over 40 thousand people are awaiting a test for the virus.
Its a very scary time for us all!

We’re in lockdown now!

Well it has happened! We are now officially in lockdown!

The government made an announcement early this evening.

All schools are closed, they said until April 19th, but I’m pretty sure it will be for longer than that.

We’re not allowed to gather in groups of more than 4 people!

All non essential businesses are closed! Restaurants, cafe’s, everything is shut down!

Grocery stores are staying open, but we arent allowed to go out unless its absolutely essential.

They said we’re in this for the long haul. This could go on for months is what they said.

There is a law now that if your in a taxi, you have to sit in the back seat. You cant sit in the front.

Police are on the streets, manning the public parks, and other amenities.

I’ll be staying home, not gonna go to my parents. My PA said she’s still working, and unless that changes, I’ll be staying put.

I need access to good wifi, to do therapy, and my conference calls for slimming world.

So thats where things are at. I am anxious, very, very anxious. My anxiety has hit an entirely new level.

The only thing we can do now is sit tight, and wait, wait for this to pass, and as our local media here keeps saying, it will pass. It wont go on forever.

The calm before the storm, irish prime minister gives warnings about coronavirus

Here is the speech our government leader gave the other day on coronavirus and on the calm before the storm. I thought that he did well and it was a good speech.

Just saw this…possible vaccine for covid19 coronavirus!

“A team in Oxford led by Prof. Sarah Gilbert, Prof. Andrew Pollard, Prof. Teresa Lambe, Dr Sandy Douglas and Prof. Adrian Hill started work designing a vaccine on Saturday 10th January 2020. The current status is that they have identified a vaccine candidate and are working towards the first clinical testing phase.”
