My university went online, but half of my classes consist of projects to do anyway, so that’s not that much of a change for me. Other than that, I study a lot, so I don’t go out, social life at my uni is nonexistent, not much change in that for me. However, I miss my extracurriculars. I also miss shopping (the only “going out” passtime that I have), but I have flu that doesn’t quite want to leave me, so I wouldn’t do it anyway, I don’t feel well enough to spend long hours out of home. I don’t know if this is overblown or not, but I’d err on the side of caution. So I’m not sure if shutting down every business is a good idea, but it’s good that large gatherings of people are cancelled. I also don’t think masks are stupid idea. I spent some time in the lab and there is nothing wrong with protective clothing - I think it’s much worse to injure yourself somehow than to look stupid and withstand some sort of discomfort for a limited period of time. What also worries me is that people need to be told to wash their hands and keep their hygiene. It’s 21st century, they’re ignorant and extelemety lazy (Is this really that much of an effort to wash hands? Really...?) and hurting themselves and others because of it. Not only because of the Covid, there are thousands of diseases that can be prevented by stupid water and soap, minor and not so minor. The impact of all this on mental health of many individuals is also concerning. I’m not feeling well either, not seeing people is so down-putting. There is fear about relatives. There is the earnings issue. There is media that tries to feed on the tragedy too much and only spreads fear. Depression, anxiety, panic, all that is going to escalate.
