The Fear Of The Coronavirus 😬
Back in 2019, when the coronavirus broke out,
I honestly found it hard to believe it was real at first but my doubt didn't last long because shortly after we began to hear about the virus, it spread all over the country, and people were advised to take safety measures such as avoiding large social gathering as much as possible, always put on face masks and so on.
Well it took time for people to adhere to the safety measures and so that made the spread of the virus multiply greatly where I was. Shortly after the spread, an order was passed by the government, that all malls, hostels, churches, and mosques were to be closed for sometime. Well I was affected, because at that time I was in one of the university's hostels which had to be closed at that time due to the population there.
I still didn't really know about the symptoms of the virus, not until I traveled down to my hometown. My parents weren't really surprised to see me the very day I went home because everyone was aware of the new virus, at least through the radio, television
even though many still didn't know the symptoms of which I wasn't exempted. Well, one of those days I was at home alone, I felt really bored, and decided to pay my friend whose house wasn't too far from mine a visit. I actually wanted to pay him a surprise visit so I didn't bother to tell him my plans of visiting him that day. When I got to his place, I found out his family members were all indoors. Well, I didn't bother to ask why his parents were still around at that time of the day. I greeted everyone present there, and shortly after went out with my friend.
well, we discussed school related issues,increase in diesel scarcity, and shortly after that we began to talk about the new virus(Coronavirus) which was increasingly putting fear in the hearts of many. My friend noticed he was the one doing more of the talking this time and was so curious why and so he asked why I wasn't really saying anything since he brought up the "Coronavirus topic"
well I told him I didn't know much about the virus hence my silence. He decided to throw more light on the issue shortly after he said the dos and don'ts, he began to list some of the symptoms of the virus. Well I honestly was still startled as to how a virus could spread so fast within seconds. Not too long after he listed the symptoms, we got carried away by a minor accident which happened just across the road... not too long after we ensured everyone around the scene was safe, we both went back to our houses. That same night, I had difficulty getting to sleep
the heat in my room was just as if it was doubled I felt so restless, and tired yet ...I used the back if my palm to feel my body temperature...it didn't seem abnormal to me so I just waved everything off and laid down on the bed. Not too long after that I slept off...the next day I woke up so tired, my body temperature had risen way more than before, I was having a headache, a runny nose and was so tired (i could barely walk).
At that moment I was so confused because I could remember just the other day,I was all good without catarrh or high temperature. I began to wonder why and how all this sprang up just while I was asleep...I must tell you I began to over think most especially,because the symptoms were part of what my friend listed the previous day. I wanted to isolate myself without letting my parents know why but then I summoned courage to let them know how I was feeling. We were all tensed up that they, but then my mom was bold enough to take me to the hospital for a check-up. The results showed I was just suffering from typhoid and malaria...
I have never been as relieved as i was that very day😅. that very day I was so happy it was just malaria and typhoid, not coronavirus which was my greatest fear at that time. I could also tell my mum was so relieved to see the results too...likewise my dad and siblings 😅😅.
the corona virus's symptoms indeed is hard to identify, it's because it barely same with other average disease. during pandemic, people tend to have a negative thought if they suffer symptoms like high fever, runny nose and super tired because they will mistake it as if they suffer for the virus
Hahaha, the coronavirus era was so tough on all of us, glad it wasn't Cora for you, it was just malaria. How happy you might have felt.
Yeah I was so relieved 😅😅 thanks for stopping by tho🤝
It was a very difficult time. As a person who knows a little bit about science, I realized from the first announcements I saw that this was going to affect the world a lot. I thought I was probably going to die, and I even wrote this fear in my diaries. But I got through it without getting sick. The only thing I remember is that after I got the corona vaccine, I was very weak and my fever rose and I felt like a dragon that could breathe flames because of the rising temperature inside and my sore throat ahaha
Yeah the virus sure shook the whole world but I'm glad we made it through!! Thanks for stopping by 🤭❤️
Those early days of Covid were so terrifying; everyone was almost unreasonably afraid. You’ve give us a shockingly poignant idea to to explore—you were glad to have thyroid AND malaria! That’s the ultimate comment on the pervasive panic the virus caused. Nicely done!
Very true so many people were so scared when the virus first broke out although it affected so many things but I believe with time things will return back to normal...Thanks!!🤭❤️

Yeah I sure was happy it wasn't Corona 😂😂 thanks for stopping by tho🤝🤝
I am amused that you felt grateful that it was malaria and not covid. I think that both are illnesses to take care of, although I have never suffered from malaria and covid I believe on two occasions. But at the beginning of this pandemic, we all live in moments of concern.
Yeah although both are illness, one us more dreadful, And at that time didn't even have a cure(Coronavirus) hence the relief when I found out it wasn't Coronavirus 😂😂😅

Woww😮 thanks so much...this is the first time I am being mentioned in the magazine. I Really appreciate 💪
My first experience was ebola virus in 2014. I bath salted water. I was scared and terrified. In 2020 when we witnessed outbreak of corona virus, I was calm and drew inspiration from my experience during ebola. May the world never witness such again.
Ebola virus also made me really scared too😅😅...yes I also bathed with salted water all because of fear lol. Thanks for stopping by 😁💪
Malaria is also terrible, but at least it is better than covid in its first months as a pandemic.
Yeah sure... thanks for reading
