Frankly at this point I am not so much concerned whether to survive this world wide pandemic, than how ever to recover from severe financial losses in my pension plan (that I need for living). As of latest count, five years of income are down the drain. In other words I have to worry more about killing myself before this money runs out, than possibly surviving this viral disease.
All the measures now prescribed by the health authorities I have practiced all my life. What I do in addition now:
Cleaning thoroughly all groceries before they enter my home. In front of my entrance door, get rubber gloves and wipe everything down, containers, packages. Door handle. Then wash my grocery bags and my gloves. I always wear gloves (even before this outbreak). Fresh produce (even though I peel all fruits) I dunk extra for a long while in a solution of white vinegar and water. WASH – WASH – WASH.
I still go for a walk – since everything now is closed here – streets eerily empty, and go through our large city Park. Keeping on roads and streets by myself.
Does that sound paranoid ? I do not think so. One needs to take this seriously.
