What I told my daughter about the Coronavirus

Share

My daughter said she was getting nervous about Coronavirus.

My advice? Stock up on basics, use common sense when you’re out, and don’t watch the news.

Because that’s what my wife and I are doing.

And because, what else can we do?

We’re not worried. Because that doesn’t help.

Just concerned. And cautious.

The virus might turn out to be worse than others. Or it might not. Nobody knows anything yet, so let’s not get ahead of ourselves.

When the weather warms up, things might look very different.

Unfortunately, like a virus, panic is also contagious, and right now, panic seems to be causing more harm than the virus itself.

So, when family or clients mention the subject, the best thing we can do is show them a level head.

When this blows over, and it will, we’ll all feel a lot better because we survived, and because we didn’t contribute to the chaos.

Keep calm and carry on.
