Yeah, in this time it is crucial that everyone learns about how to obtain valid / quality information from the media. The media are very important, always have been. But since social media arrived in our society, it becomes harder and harder to be media savvy.
This is a good time to learn, especially for the children and young people. Educational institutions (and everyone who has knowledge) should focus on this issue now and teach people how to navigate through the massive stream of media publications, news, ...
Yes, all those of us with certain health issues have to be extra careful, old or young. I have asthma as well. Not the severe kind, but I get dreadful coughing spasms (due to allergies, cold air, dust, for example...). I never knew it was classified as a form of asthma until last year.
My mom is 72 and has severe allergies, my Dad is 73 and has severe heart issues So they are even more at risk.
Thankfully, they live in the countryside and are okay with staying to themselves, mowing the lawn and raking the flower beds in their garden :laughing:
This virus has taught me a lot of things and still teaching me a lot. like for instance, this whole world only cares about themselves! bunch of hoarders and selfish people.
this whole world is nothing but a bunch of immature idiots. and sadly we have live with these people. >_

As long as you don’t go anywhere for social outing, you’re much safer at home. But as for me I can only go out for if I wanna shovel snow off or take my family’s dog out. As I mentioned previously about my relatives, my mom got groceries for them and dropped them off, because they self quarantined because they were at a trip to Florida.
NatureCriminal7896;4284194 said:I agree. but just because i have depression etc. i still like to get fresh air every now and then. follow by going out and have some fun maybe enjoy some life sometimes. maybe if it is just 15 mins-30 mins etc. sunshine is important for people who has depression.
I understand what you mean though. i'm very to myself person too. but i still enjoy company and fresh air sometimes.

PoP;4284273 said:The media always tends to scare people when they mention the outbreak happened in their country. They were supposed warn people but tell em to keep their cool and calm down at the same time, but they failed assure em’ to remain calm cause people to be idiots by hoarding the essentials we need and the pharmacies limits 1 sanitizers per customer and jacked up the price.
Anna;4284283 said:COVID-19 is not like the flu and uninformed influencers and celebrities really need to stop saying that. They have some symptoms in common, but COVID-19 has a much higher fatality rate and it's a lot more contagious. A person with the flu would end up infecting less than 30 people if it was passed on 10 times. A person with COVID-19 would end up infecting 59,000 people if it was passed on 10 times. The incubation period is much longer with COVID-19, so you could be walking around infecting others for as long as two weeks before you even show symptoms. This is why quarantine and social distancing is so important, but a lot of people aren't taking it seriously. Selfish idiots are going to be responsible for crippling health services and killing thousands of people.
If it's safe for you to do so then take vitamin C and vitamin D supplements to help your immune system. You can also boost your health by eating fruits and vegetables, getting adequate sleep, and doing some kind of exercise every day — even if you're stuck indoors. Most importantly, follow your government's instructions and stay at home as much as possible.
As was mentioned earlier in this thread over 80% of people who get the virus will either have no symptoms or mild symptoms which can be managed at home until you recover, so don't panic, just stay informed and alert and keep in touch with your loved ones.

Our prime minister said (which I find it very sad by the way), that the homeless are in a better situation because they live on the street and the get to catch fresh air. I mean, what the ****?! They are saying that we must stay home and only take little walks but with the homeless is okay to stay outside?! No one is taking a stand about their situation. I think they too should get help and they should find a place for them to be while this virus is around there. I mean aren´t the people?!
