In a previous article, I wrote that those under the age of 40 would see an increase in the number of Covid-19 cases if they believed themselves to be invincible. That is happening. Why? Most of it is because people are facing “Covid Fatigue”.
Yes, there is no doubt that the greater majority of people are reaching points where mental health is suffering because of this pandemic. If anyone thinks that it’s only school aged people/children, they’d be wrong. Even those who are beyond those years are feeling the effects of it too. Not many are happy being stuck indoors. We are after all, considered social creatures. We all need others in our lives even if we tend to stay more to ourselves.
However, that all said, it’s certainly an increasing number of younger people who are not only contracting the virus but, who are spreading it like wildfire. Do they not realize that for every positive case, they are putting those numbers upwards and giving health authorities the reasons to keep things closed? Do they not care about businesses or other people’s lives who could die? Are those who are involved only care about themselves or those in their “groups” that are way out of proportion to what’s advised?
Take one look at the beaches of the world, the parties that are way above and beyond the numbers set out by the doctors of this world. One can see even via a photo or description and video that it’s gotten out of hand. No one needs a party of 200 of their closest friends during a time like this. Who even knows 200 people? What about the beach parties where not only is garbage and excrements left behind by the beach goers but, there’s NO social/physical distancing, alcohol which lowers thinking patterns to idiot status and there are no masks either. Do we really even want to touch the protests that have occurred? Maybe, that’s better left off right now.
The central messages are that the types of people who do this type of thing have no or little regard for anyone else’s lives other than their own fun.
- If you don’t care about yourself, think of those that you live with. You’re endangering their lives by your choices or lack of them shall we say?
- These antics are setting things backwards. If you think that people are losing their businesses and lives so that you can party or drink or whatever, think again. They often don’t know where their next meal is coming from, let alone mortgage, rent or anything else for that matter. That means that you won’t either.
- People are fed up too. It’s not just you. What if everyone were to think as you have and only concern themselves with having fun?
- Things that could have opened, now can’t because people like this are thinking as they are.
- What about healthcare workers and 1st Responders? Should they have to risk their own lives and other’s in their lives, lives for you if you become infected?
- If you think that you’re going to take it lightly or asymptomatically because you’re of a certain age, think again. There are a lot of people who are dying and suffering and will because they ignored the requests to stay away from others as much as possible and went to parties. If you think this is wrong, watch the news once in awhile and listen to stories of people your age. You’ll see an entirely different story than the one imagined in your thick skulls.
- Let’s say that you do get Corona/Covid-19. Do you truly expect that there should be a hospital bed available for you if you needed it? Again, think again! It’s no laughing matter nor, is it screamable. No one is going to listen to you or put their lives in danger for you if you’re doing this type of thing.
- People will tell on others. They have to do it. Tracing isn’t a joke and everyone that someone had come in contact with will be named. Yours could be one of them.
- Make sure that you have the money to pay off a ticket that a by-law person has handed you. It’s not your parent’s jobs to take care of your tickets and they may not…even if they do have money.
- If you wish to go to a bar and sit and drink, or the beach, or a gym, remember that you’re not alone in this type of wish but, you’re not going to get there if you continue doing crud like this. It’s serious business no matter what you’ve been told. Don’t believe me, seek out a Medium and ask the dead. Think that they were all “older people”? Think again.
From my little corner of life to yours, as long as I have one that is, I’m going to admonish those who go against measures that have been put into place for a reason. It doesn’t matter what age you’re at but, increasingly, the numbers are going up again because of antics by those who believe themselves to be an exception. That’s especially true of those who are of a certain age group.
In the meanwhile, stay well,
Love and Light!
