There has been lots of gyaan given by lots of people, scientists, doctors and government officials about COVID-19. It seems now that all of the gyaan has been imparted and that we have to take the precautions ourselves to combat this threat to our families and us.

As the thread suggests, how has your life changed in COVID-19 crisis?

I will start off with changes in my life.

Have been working from home since 5-6 years, so no love lost there. Still working from home as before. My wife, on the other hand, is an officer with a PSU bank. She has to go every day to her bank, and since past week or so, standard banking has resumed. Thermal scanners ( I guess it's just for peace of mind) at the gate and sanitisers for every visitor in the bank is the precaution that is being taken at her bank. Changes in life? I know for sure that I won't be able to call my parents to my place for the foreseeable future. My wife goes outside every day, and my mother is a heart patient (one stent, two years back), diabetic and suffering from high BP. So I really feel dejected at times that I won't be able to call my parents to my place or go to their home for that matter.

I have a furry friend, a labrador retriever. However, there are reports that COVID-19 affects or does not affects canines, I have gone to the safe route. I am not taking him to walk outside, and the house is big enough to have him plenty of exercise playing fetch. No outside walks for him now.

I purchase most of my groceries online now, and if I have to go out, I go at noon, around 2-3 p.m. so that I encounter a minimal number of people.

Every day, I fear that my wife has to go out and work. Fear is rational and not of the unknown. Earlier she used to take the metro, but now she goes in her car, alone.

I have subscribed to RSS feeds of newspapers from various news outlets, and I only read selective news. There is an outburst of news in the print as well as online media, and I keep myself abridged of selective news only. To trust or not to trust the news, I don't know anymore. I always feel that the numbers are skewed. Maybe I am paranoid, but I will take being cautious anytime than being infected.

Guess that's it.

Well, if anyone else has to share something, the thread is all yours.


I have tried to do my best to keep him happy but it seems he is tensed :) :)

That's Mr. Cooper

Yes life has definitely changed , blessed with a baby girl in April 2020 and she is getting all our attention. Keeping her safe is now our biggest concern so taking all the precautions.
On the work front , well it hasn't started yet last went to work in March and payments are still in Limbo , was Devastated by the plight of labor so did all that we can do.
Another big change is, we have to first time buy vegetable and fruits locally as perviously i always brought veges and fruit form wholesale mandi where i work (hotel contracts is my nature of work).
Haven't been able to meet close relatives even my sister who lives beyond the city borders. Same for in-laws.
Online groceries are now common though we have shops close by but to avoid busy place we do only purchases.
This has definitely brought a big change in how we live and we would have to live like this in future.
Hope is all we have now for a better tomorrow.

Congrats for your baby girl. :) Priorities change after you have a kid. (So I have heard, have to experience this myself.)

I know.
Was just taking a dig.

How are you managing routine doctor visits and mandatory vaccination programme.

Hope you have already done BCG thing, it is more relevant now.
Yes things get sorted out with hospital documents. Mine is a preterm baby spent 8 days in Nursery , first vaccination done and all important tests done and all good.
It was emergency delivery only that day was little tuff as things were all closed.

You can now goto Delhi- NCR easily.
But wait for more time to let improve situation.

Situation will worsen in next 6 months for sure as prediction of half population contamination is predicted.
