Three Things I’ve Learned About Humanity Thanks to Coronavirus

At this point in time, I believe this silly virus needs no introduction, so I’ll just get right to it.

Number One:

It is terrifying to see how completely unable we are at containing a virus. Imagine if this was actually something serious? Like a zombie virus or something with a high mortality rate? Most of the population would be completely wiped out…which honestly, is probably needed at this point anyway.

But due to the fact that everyone needs money, and our greedy bosses don’t allow us to use sick days, and all the day to day places we need to go spend money our hard-earned money at, the would never be under any type of quarantine or marshal law or simply a sick day used, or travel bans to stop the spread of disease.

Number Two:

This one I already kind of new, but maybe not to this proportion. How obsessive and easily swayed people are to the media.

People are freaking the hell out over this stupid thing. It’s not even that serious…like at all. But the media is hyping and exploding the whole thing way out of proportion, and the population is eating it up. Fearing this stupid virus will become a way of life soon enough, and all the while the media and medical distributors are going to keep feeding it to our mindless, hungry mouths, for they are profiting immensely off of these fears.

And this leads me to

Number Three:

People normally don’t use soap.

Everywhere you look, stores are running out of hand sanitizer, wipes, face masks, hand soap.

This tells me two things…people never clean themselves, or at least never wash their hands…which I would venture to say, for the hand-washing part, is true for at least 50% of people.

The other thing it tells me is people are incredibly stupid (and most of us are), and are setting themselves up for the long haul, getting cleaning materials to last them for years to safeguard them from this horrendous epidemic. But they will risk getting the virus so they can shop those good sales at the mall…as long as they use hand sanitizer after every time they touch something.

So thank you coronavirus for educating me further on what a pathetic species we are! Sounds to me like the flu is very similar, but we don’t cause an uproar over that. Maybe cuz it’s old news?
