Up Close and Personal, Corona Virus

So, it’s been  23 days  since our arrival from our  Philippine vacation  on Feb. 29.  I went to work the next day without knowing  I could have contracted the virus  over there,  and not show any symptoms , and therefore , could have infected  folks at work.,  over here in the US.   (  Please check out my previous post )  I should have gone on  14 -day quarantine leave  before going to work, but protocols  were not in place yet  regarding  this matter.  Sorry.

 

So far,  I don’t show any symptoms,  and  to my great relief, not one of  my co- workers has  gotten sick,  thank goodness.  Even my mom, who was with me in the Philippines,  and my Dad who didn’t go on vacation , are both A- okay, and they are both in their 60’s, you know.   My sister who works in LA is  thumbs up, as well.  She works with Ca State as toxicologist/microbiologist.

 

Funny how  each country gives community distancing a different name.

 

China and Italy— Lockdown

US — sheltering – in- place

Philippines —  Enhanced country-wide  quarantine  ( 24 hr. curfew for non-essential travel )  33 deaths as of March 23,  207 confirmed infection, over 2,000 PUIs  ( persons under investigation) , 18 recoveries  from critical )

 

I still go to work. In fact. I work at a dairy manufacturing company as a microbiologist ,  7 days a week for  2 weeks now, no days off…… production of milk and other milk products is at maximum.  Aside from our own brand, we produce  for others , as well ( store brands ) Our milk products  export to Taiwan is at maximum, too.

 

So guys, rest assured,  I’m not a walking  Corona virus.   * bowing head in humility *

 

It did scare and stress me out  for a while.

 

Oh, by the way,  my hands are already very dry and starting to crack due to frequent handwashing and I go to ridiculous lengths to socially distance myself, even in our  small laboratory and from my own parents.

 

  • sigh*

 

I want this to end already.

 

I’m mentally exhausted.
