i hope i don’t have the coronavirus right now

*person dying behind me on the airplane*

they kept coughing like they were gonna hacking up both lung.
was it them?
was it because it was cold af down in nola?
the day i was there,
it was so chilly.
i felt like i needed a sweater and jacket than what i had on.
i assumed because i was deep down south,
it would be hot af.
it felt like 40 degrees the night i was in those forests.
or…

Did I catch the Coronavirus?

okay,
slight panic
it started yesterday with a semi stuffy nose.
i kept clearing my throat while i was podcasting.
today now…

Tired af
Stuffy nose
Scratchy throat
Slight pain in my chest
Headache

i read this and:

the fear-mongering has started.
businesses and schools are closing down in other countries.
it’s only a matter of time.
any slight ailment and you think you’ve caught it.
i’ve seen grown people in masks shun those from asian communitiues.
it’s a whole mess,
but i think that’s the plot to get us out of control.
no better way than to instill fear.
look,
if it’s my time to go because folks decided to eat bats

let’s just hope its the case of the sniffles and i’ll be good in a few days.

low-key: 2020 yo…

  1. Well Before you Panic, Remember it IS regular flu season, I had it 2 weeks ago and yes….it was bad, felt like I was hit by a truck, bad headache, utterly tired, slight chills, runny nose etc. so hang in there!

  2. Somebody told me that if you look on the Lysol under the list of things it disinfects; coronavirus is on there. If we’re just now finding out about this. Why is it on the can? The can is about a year old

        1. We forget that coronavirus is a family of viruses ..this outbreak is just one type of coronavirus . this one is called covid-19

  3. I’d be lying if I said I was not nervous about catching it. I think a vaccine is in the works, but it not finished yet. I already hate germs as it is and I keep my hands washed frequently.

  4. Every virus/disease gets blown out of proportion by the media anytime one comes around. Remember when ebola was the rage? They all end up being nothing much in the end. But I guess it’s better to be cautious & vigilant than not.

    Doesn’t sound like you have flu symptoms imo. I think you’ll be just fine. I got a flu shot & I drink an organic echinacea tea before I go out anywhere to boost my immune system.

  5. I feel bad for the Chinese community as they will get hell. People tend to react from fear, emotion not from a place of rationaliy. I’m schedule to travel to Ghana, Senegal, Togo in a months time, hope my trip isn’t seriously impacted. I’m also concerned about the drop in the stock market..devastating for sure.

"off topic", trolling, and other nonsense gets sent to my spam folder. other than that, play nice and let's discuss!
