Gone to ridiculous lengths to protect my parents/ home, then, bam !

From  taking absurd precautionary measures ———> I’m   now on WTF !  mode

 

So, what’s the story , Ren ? ? ?

 

Okay….. check out my previous post .. from work,  I go straight to my room ( after disinfecting the doorknobs with alcohol ) … take a shower…. then I call my parents on the phone ( who are in the next room ! )  O^O

 

But then….

 

The dairy company where I work  received a request for gloves and masks from a hospital …. the company gave them  what we have….. later ,  we ran out of gloves and masks in the lab,  so for a few days,  I did microtesting for presence of microbes in milk samples,  without gloves and masks…. I just washed my hands  every time I tested stuff, like, every 15 minutes…..  that’s a lot of washing  for the duration.

 

Then, last week..

 

A worker tested positive….. he works at our ” Cold Box “, that’s where milk is stored before they’re loaded to our  distribution trucks.   I just got my ”  free ‘  milk  from there last week . Ugh. It’s also a 20 – sec ride from  our  lab, so our lab is at a safe distance.   The positive guy does not work at production, so that’s good.   Anyway,  we heard the said worker ‘s father  was hospitalized  (  Positive )  and  because  the worker was the one who brought him to the hospital ,  he  was tested , too .  Sadly, he was positive.   All  the seven  men who work  at the Cold Box were asked to quarantine at home for 14 days, including the wife  of one, who happens to work  at our building ( not  in  our lab,  thank goodness ), but  she does  share our locker  and break rooms.   I  hope they’re all A-Okay…. otherwise, we’re screwed.  ~_~  The Cold Box was disinfected, that goes without saying.  No one  is allowed to enter our lab….test samples are now placed on the table outside the lab.   Also,  our temperature is now taken  at the gate  before we enter the facility.  I did mention before  that each employee has a key to open the main gate ….and yeah, there are even road spikes on the road  o_O.   The company is  very much concerned with bio-terrorism, folks.   O_O

Bio-terrorism…. hmmm. That’s irrelevant  to the matter at hand , right ?

Read on………

So, okay, I don’t want to spread stuff that may or may not be true, but search on YOUTUBE, the origin of Corona Virus.  Here, I’ll do it for you.

 

 

You don’t have to be a molecular biologist  to understand  the message here on the video.  It’s simple enough.

 

My degree is Cell and Molecular Biology, which deals  with biological stuff at molecular level thru the study of RNA, DNA ,protein synthesis, and the like…..( and not what I’m currently doing at my job now, counting and checking the presence of microbes in milk  ). To be honest,  I am more interested in research, so this video is right up my alley……. which makes watching this video  more scary  because I know exactly  what they are  talking about.

 

Anyway,  I know you are all smart and discerning.   It’s up to you to believe or not to believe.

 

Wash your hands, keep your distance.

 

Take care, wherever you are.
