Today Idris Elba confirmed that he has the coronavirus. This is yet another shock and a declaration of how this virus moves. I don’t think the message can get any louder. We have to be very careful of our actions. At this point Mr. Elba is the third celebrity to come down with the virus. Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson both have the virus in Australia. This is a video from Idrise Elba. https://twitter.com/idriselba/status/1239617034901524481?s=20
It isn’t a joke, hoax or something blown out of proportion. It is very real and scary. I think the scariest part of this whole ordeal is the amount of people not taking it seriously. Check your area daily to see if there are new cases, and make sure you are keeping up with the latest information. I know there are some of us who might not trust the government, but now is the time to listen. If people are telling you to avoid crowds, then you want to avoid crowds.
Sometimes we get cocky and we think that we can manage anything, but this is something totally new. You do not know how your immune system will hold up to this virus. Please wash your hands, and if you go to the store, wait until you get home before you open up bags of food. I know some of you might be used to pulling out a candy bar and eating it on your drive home, but that really isn’t smart right now.
There are now store workers coming down with the coronavirus, so make sure you are using hand sanitizer after you get in the car. Keep your hands away from your face, and after you get home from work, take a bath. These are just common things we should be doing everyday. I will be updating on any needed information. Stay safe.
