COVID-19: What, where, when, why and how did this all happen?

Here I am to talk more about the craziness going on in the world. It started spreading in China in December of 2019 and has spread worldwide ever since then. COVID-19 is an infectious disease caused by a new virus. It causes a respiratory illness that is closely related to the flu. This nationwide concern hit us upside the head. The US military had noted the existence of COVID-19 all the way back in 2017 but they were not expecting it to be like this. How did it take over so fast though? And when is it going to start getting better?

As said, the first case of the coronavirus showed up in December of 2019. To many, it wasn’t a concern. It didn’t seem very dangerous but it spread drastically which freaked people out. Fast forward a few months and it seems as if that is the only thing people can talk about. Schools, restaurants and other public places have been shut down and we have no idea when this is all going to be over.

As of right now, the U.S. is currently number one in the world for cases of the coronavirus reaching almost 500,000. People need to be aware of how important it is to stay home right now. It is nice to hang out with friends but you are putting your families at risk by being around others. Just because we are young and this virus isn’t going to attack us as badly as others,  we can still spread it just as easily. It is time to put this madness to an end, but we all play a part in doing so. Stay home, you guys. Take a breather for a minute and use this time to shift the focus back on yourself. 

When you are out and about, make sure you are wearing a mask to protect yourself and others. Any time you are about to eat or touch near your face, wash your hands. It takes 30 seconds and I can promise you it will be a lot better than getting sick. Honestly, people need to be doing this whether or not there is a virus going on around the world. This was a wake-up call for a lot of people to start creating healthier habits for themselves. To be sure they live in a clean environment, to wash their hands before they eat and to be aware of what they are doing when sneezing or coughing. It is so simple!
