Today it’s beginning the third day of the “Phase 2” of Italy’s fight against COVID-19 and its impact on our society. We are benefiting from a grace period with less infected, fewer new hospitalizations and more healed. But all of those is coming from 15 days ago social behaviour…
We’ll know if we’re doing well in the next two weeks, when we will see the fruit of the exploded social inteaction. Spring is coming, and going out it’s irresistable.
What scares me is the relaxation of the few essential habits in this fight against COVID-19. Extreme attention touching things, and immediately after our face / eyes. Surgical masks worn over by usage – they are finally coming, but people over used them in the last weeks – and bad maintenance, surgical masks put on our forehead, on our chin, leaving the nose outside… And also some people not paying attention to keep the 1mt / 1,5mt distance between other people.
This scares like hell me and others, who lives the grocery’s walk like running under the bombs.
Let’s hope for the better… now let’s go back to work and to the search of a babysitter!
We’re at the end of phase-1 in this fight against the COVID-19 pandemy. Next monday we’ll try to start a phase-2 with more activities opened to public, introducing the surgical mask, plastic gloves and social distancing everywhere. If we manage to keep new infections and ICU at manageable levels we will live a more ‘normal’ life, if not we’ll be sent back inside our houses and God save us from the economical disaster.
Schools are closed, and remote working will be encouraged and proposed to all the people in positions to produce in that way. I really don’t know how me and my wife will be able to actually keep a good pace of working with this 30 months old, strong, intelligent and world’s exploring kid we had the bless to have.
Please be safe everybody!
Day 48 of our quarantine, seems like in less than 15 days we will start a ‘phase 2’ after this world embracing pandemia has reached us. Let’s hope for the better … even if the intolerance to the rules of a part of the population and the lack of enough individual protection devices for everybody – in Italy and in the rest of the world – scares me a lot.
Stay safe, and good luck!
