Truth be told, COVID-19 has changed our lives to a great extent. Many new experiences and ways of living have been known. We are some human beings, we make some arrangements in some way, but this is a small cute dog, you are doing a great job. Hats offThere 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
