It's been a year since the pandemic. We're still in quarantine and now, there are new variants wreaking havoc in our lives. Honestly, I am starting to feel anxious.
Today, we hit the highest recorded number in a single day since the pandemic became an official thing. 7,103 new positive cases. 7,103. Let that sink in.
The UK strain is said to be targeting kids and senior citizens. It's also supposedly 7x faster when it comes to spreading itself. It is that contagious.
It's nerve wracking these days. The mere thought of going out and possibly contracting the disease has become more of a reality these days. Coworkers of mine are getting swab tests because they came into contact with someone positive.
It's more real now than it was a year ago and yet there are so many people who think that it's okay to no longer wear masks and face shield now. It's maddening and terrifying.
I worry about myself. I worry about my family. I worry about friends. I worry about the world.
When will this end? Will this ever end?
