Are You Worried?

about the COVID-19?

If asked, my reply is no.  Because I believe or shall I say am brainwashed that worrying does nothing good.  The term is banished from my thinking.

Having said that, I find myself incessantly following the news reports about the COVID-19.  Where has it spread? How many? Is it trending up or down? And so on.   Anything has “latest” about the disease catches my attention.

It is a developing epidemic.  Something new that tests our ability to deal with it.  Human versus the virus, if you will. But my attention is beyond the novelty effect.  The COVID-19 has killed over 2,850 and will unfortunately be more before it runs its course, eventually.

What draws my attention is this:  how people deal with this epidemic exhibits much about their cultural history, values & beliefs from that part of the world where they live.  In other word, the context.  The lockdown of cities and millions of its people in China is a case in point.

And as the virus continues to spread, it’s more than China, South Korea, Iran, etc.  It is all of us.  The disease knows no borders.
