From a Very Wise Friend
Let’s say you wake up with a terrible cough, fever and body ache. You immediately go to the doctor and unfortunately you are diagnosed with covid-19. In the last two weeks you were not aware that you were infected, and you ignored “the rules”.
You hung out with some friends to eat a pizza, you invited people home and you even went to a park and a beach. You thought “I don’t feel sick. I have the right to continue living a normal life. No one can tell me what to do. ”
With the diagnosis of Covid-19 you spend the next few days on the sofa in your house quite badly, but soon you feel better, because you are young, you are healthy and you are strong. How lucky you are!
But you infected your best friend during that visit to your house, and since she didn’t know she was infected, she visited her 82-year-old grandfather, who uses oxygen to help him breathe because he has COPD and heart problems. Now he is dead.
Your co-worker, who has asthma, also caught the virus from you. Now he is in the ICU and he also infected his family members, who will not know it for two weeks yet. The boy who charged you for the pizza at the restaurant took the virus home, his wife has multiple sclerosis and this makes her immunosuppressed, she is not as lucky as you, so they take her to the hospital because she cannot breathe. They may need to induce a coma and intubate her. You may not be able to say goodbye to your loved ones. She may die surrounded by machines, without her relatives around her.
And all this because you were uncomfortable wearing your face mask or you did not like to stay at home or change your routines for a little bit over all other rights, and you wanted to continue living your life normally; You also believe that no one, no one, has the right to tell you what to do. But:
#socialdistance – NOT for you!
#usacovers – NOT for you!
#stayathome – NOT for you!
IT’S FOR EVERYONE! Responsibility and empathy is called. IF YOU TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF, 😷 you take care of the ones you love the most. Think about it! 🤔
Copy and paste it! That’s how I did it.
Have courage and be kind.￼
