When To Get Over The COVID-19 Pandemic?

Several months ago, we experienced the unfortunate thing of having virus infection occurrences in a specific part of a country. It was a respiratory virus that internally damages humans by targeting the body’s immune system. The spread went faster that public health measures can no longer contain it. Now, health organizations called it an emergency and declared a pandemic since the virus is now spreading worldwide. And as of this moment, the death toll continues to rise. Thus, everyone is asking the same questions over and over again: When will the world get over with this pandemic? But with all that’s happened, it seemed like it depends on what global governments choose to do next.

The Possible Options

Herd Immunity

Possibly, a way to get rid of the virus is by getting infected. Yes, perhaps the better way to overcome the pandemic is when communities do nothing to halt the spread of the infection. When people get exposed as quickly as possible, two things can only happen – either they survive or die. Therefore, it will all come down to the process of building up the immune system. It may sound harsh, but it could support medical professionals and pharmaceutical experts in the study.

Since doctors know little about how the virus originates and how to stop it and save their patients, all they can wish for is to control hospitals’ peak capacity. The herd immunity is not-so-ideal. But there is a chance it can save a little of the already collapsing world healthcare systems.

Delay And Vaccinate

For most people, herd immunity is considerably a brutal process of getting rid of the virus. A way health organizations acted on the spread is by mostly contaminating it so that we can deal with the situation without such a high cost of an individual’s life. Thus, a better way is through delaying the spread. It can help research facilities to study more about the virus and possibly produce a vaccine. Right now, this is the choice of the government that we are all experiencing.

It is a tactic that includes mass testing, quarantine, and physical distancing. But since many people are too stubborn to follow an instant precaution, some maintained their same routines and continued to live their lives the way they used to. Unfortunately, it began to cause a lot of problems because people’s stubbornness led to a rise in the number of infected ones that even cause their virus-related deaths.

Restrict And Coordinate

The idea of this process is to stop the virus from getting another host everywhere. It is a combination of social distancing, home quarantine, and travel restriction. The flow should follow critically synchronize responses from people all over the world. And when properly coordinated, it might have a chance of stopping the pandemic within a few months with a low loss of life.

However, this method can lead to economic malfunction. Thus, the majority of people will not comply. And even with these measures are in place, there is still a chance that the virus continues to spread regardless of how careful an individual can be. That explains why some cities that thought they already managed to control the outbreak went on the resurgence and return to social distancing protocols.

We can all expect that within the next several years, there will be a possible vaccine that will become freely available thanks to people’s worldwide efforts. But unless the virus gets eliminated completely, the risk of everyone getting infected is at stake. So whether it is herd immunity, delay and vaccination, and restrict and coordinate, we all need to put on some effort in contributing to what’s best for the world.

How This COVID-19 Pandemic Changes People’s Perspective

This Coronavirus world health issue brings people to the verge of multiple realizations. The situation becomes a window for the people to understand that nothing in this world today is safe. The virus affects every individual regardless of their status, age, sexual orientation, and religious beliefs. There are no exemptions as to who are the ones that should get and not get infected. It is a sad moment for everybody’s lives because the situations trigger anxiety and depression at unexpected levels.

Now that people live in constant fear where a world tries its best to achieve health safety, the way they see things becomes different. Individuals are far more eager and stubborn. Yes, most people understand the situation. But not all of them are capable of realizing the importance of following rules. Some complain a lot, and others merely do not care. Honestly, you can’t blame them because everyone deals with the situation differently. But what are the top reasons this pandemic changes how people see things?

Scarcity

An on-point answer to the previous question is scarcity. People complain because of the shortage of resources everywhere. There is not enough supply of food, shelter, and medicines. Even hospitals are out of equipment as well. The worst part of the struggle is that only those individuals who can afford to pay their way out of misery are lucky enough to get everything they need. And those unfortunate people can only wish and pray that they will be able to survive this world crisis without having anything in the table. You see, this is not only about health issues anymore. The whole situation is now consigning everything, including the world economy. There are billions of people in the world that need help. But only a few resources are available. And in some unfortunate cases, those who handle the supplies take more than for themselves.

Survival

Perhaps you understand that it is wrong to judge people based on what they do because this situation is different. In this time of the pandemic, all are guilty of thinking about their safety. People focus more on saving their lives because they want to survive. We can’t deny the selfishness within each one of us now because it is no use. This pandemic shows us that the true nature of humans depends on their eagerness to stay alive, with or without considerations. No one wants to become a hero at this point because saving thousands of lives will be an impossible battle at this moment. Well, in case some specific persons consider sacrificing their lives for the benefit of the public, then that is an honorable move. But then I assure you that 99% of people will never consider giving up their lives for the survival of the majority. And if you think about the worst that might happen if this pandemic will not end soon, people will quickly kill to continue existence.

Death

Death is the number one unfortunate ending that we all can expect if this situation continues. If you haven’t noticed it, the number of people who continue to die arises. No, perhaps the situation is still under control as of now because there are still safety measures that people can do. But when the time comes that all people start to lose hope, then that is a massive downfall for humanity. Everyone will choose death. Hopefully, it won’t be the end.

No one can say when everything will be over. Hopefully, even though the situation becomes worse every day, people will still stay positive despite all the negativity. I pray that all will have the physical, emotional, and mental courage to fight this pandemic.

How Will I Know When To Stay Or Leave In A Toxic Relationship? 

Deciding whether or not we should stay or leave a relationship is a crucial process. Sometimes, we often think about it as something that could change our lives forever. Though our choices matter, we seldom see the value of things around us because we want to validate our reasons for staying or leaving a relationship. Most times, we essentially think about the kind of relationship we have is something normal in a sexual and psychological aspect that follows a regular pattern and affects our decision-making.

Just Memories

Have you ever wondered how the future generation will remember you or if you will even be remembered? For a person to be recognized is to create something that will contribute to the human race, but everything we need for now has been developed. Maybe you must be twice as a genius like Albert Einstein, or you must be the reincarnation of Leonardo da Vinci for you never to be forgotten.

 

“The thing is, each one of us is the total of every moment that we ever experienced,” a line from a Hollywood movie, “The Vow.” Indeed, we are but a memory. If we think about it, our entire individuality is based on where we grew up, the places we’ve been to, and the people in our lives. All of these contribute to our whole being. Each of us is different from another, even our sibling or twin because no one can have the same feeling of a particular experience in the exact place and time we had.

 

What Are The Roles Of Memories In Our Individuality?

 

We can’t ignore the fact that sometimes, we make decisions based on our memories, like when you choose a profession. You want to be just like your father. You remember him saving lives, so you want to be a doctor just like him. You remember how your mother made your home magnificent and every meal just glorious, that’s why you want a wife just like her.

Our memories could also trigger our behavior towards situations. An old familiar song could instantly change your mood from happy to sad or vice versa. A particular smell could trigger an emotion that only you could know why. These are all because of your memories from the last minute that had passed to the day you were born.

 

Some people also develop specific mental disorders because of the bad memories of their childhood or traumatic memory of losing someone significant in their lives. These memories create an impact on how they will continue with their lives. Some of these people who suffered abuse in their childhood could not cope up, and those memories affect their mental health leading to other negative behaviors and often, mental disorders.

 

Why Are Memories Important?

 

Memories are important because they’re like our records of every little detail that has ever happened in our lives. It’s a personal television in our head where we are the only ones who could click rewind and play.

Memory is essential because it can help us decide how we would want others to remember us because we are all but mere memories. We affect people in a way that even the littlest things we do or say to them influence how they think of themselves or life in general. It is up to us if we want to be a good memory or a bad one.

 

Maybe, 99% of our population would not be remembered a century from now, but do we really care? What’s important is the memories we make today, today when we can make a difference in someone’s life, especially the people we love. The thought of them smiling when they think about their memories of us is just priceless.
