I am now an emergency worker for coronavirus


Ive been selected as part of the emergency response team in my area.

Im scared out of my mind. But I have answered the call. Someone has to do this. This is how I can protect my family. This is how I can protect my fianceé.

Once I go into the quarantine zone I may not see my family or fianceé for months.

Im leaning on God for protection now more than ever. On the bright side...at least my family and I have stopped arguing.

I'm sure you don't have to do this but I think its awesome you have a chance to make a difference. I know here they are paying nurses like 5 grand a week to help out, crazy money.

And to top it all off...my ex girlfriend is gonna be there too.

I mean why not right...its already a higly stressful life threatening situation where I will be working and living in a closed space for 2 months...why not throw in a dash of temptation for good measure right?!

Sigh.....

You're in the Caribbean right? Didn't know the virus had hit there. We're not getting much news about the effect the virus is having there.

Cuba actually just accepted a cruise ship (with sick passengers) no one else wanted to take. A 3rd world country. They don't have the technology to combat this. Wonder why the UK didn't step in.

You do you know that he's the one who started all this, right? Could you ask him to, you know... end this?

Thanks.
The number of cases multiplied overnight ...would you believe it?..all the new cases come from the home of the first case ...you guessed it...the first case was some idiot who thought he could outsmart port security and the health officials by ignoring quarantine protocol...and now everyone in his house has tested positive too !

Sometimes I really just cannot fathom the extent of human selfishness, and blatant disrespect for human life. It is impossible that this guy did not see the news.

How selfish do you have to be to travel from a known hotspot, ignore/break quarantine and go home to possibly infect your whole family !?

(which is essentially what happened...because now the whole household is in it)



People that do this sort of thing should be prosecuted ...this is just like...like purposefully spreading AIDS !

Good read.
Im trying not to give into the whole pride aspect...the whole "look at me Im special Im on the frontline bla bla." When that thought enters my head I dispell it.

What's discouraging though...is how many other people refuse to join the fight. People that I look up to. People who taught me...all pull back and look for "administrative" positions instead, sit back and give directives from the safety of their homes. ...anyway I will stop here. if I continue I will go into a prideful rant.
