Preparations for the New

People and government has been talking about letting people going back to work when the ECQ is lifted and replaced by the GCQ on the 15th of May. The economy has to be restarted. To the small businesses, especially in the food sector, a number of the food services and it’s associated support establishments hasn’t really stopped.

But the move to get out of quarantine and start work in earnest is present and they want to begin efforts after the 15th. I am looking forward to a return to some form of normalcy concerning work but I am a little anxious about physically going to work. The virus is still around and there is still no vaccine to be seen in the immediate future. All we have are tests to see if we have contracted the virus or not. But the statistics also tell me that is that we do not perform enough of these tests. The the data so far gathered tell me that if one does get the virus, the chance of it being fatal is very minimal — 3.4% by WHO’s estimates — but no one wants to be included in that number.

I see myself going to the office soon after ECQ has been lifted or a few days after so either way I would have to really prepare for it.

covid days : 15 April

I got a letter last night which quickly became a non-letter. Either way I have decided to help and do whatever I can. What else is there to do? I’d rather have something productive to do other than exercising or watching videos most of the day.

So what do I do on my chill time? Most of the time I play Diablo III online. I have been playing it since Diablo II but I stopped. My brother gifted me with D3 a few months after my wife passed away and I have been regularly playing the game since. Aside from the game, I usually watch sci-fi vids. It’s an old preference of mine. There are others but I would rather not post them here.

I just observed when I was quickly going over the news from the US. that they have started calling covid-19 by another name — the CCP virus. The Chinese Communist Party must be pissed right now. Well, the CCP was trying to deny that the virus came from Wuhan, China even though all known evidence points to Wuhan. Investigations into this is ongoing.

I walked a lot. If it’s about two to three kilometers I’d prefer to walk it rather than take a jeep — I get to see more stuff. But this quarantine messed that up a bit so I get my exercise indoors. But it’s okay. As long as there’s music I’m good.
