I was messaging my mother on Facebook. It went like this…
Me: “Barry is driving me crazy about this virus. He’s bought masks, gloves & tons of hand sanitizer. He thinks this is going to spread all over the world and kill off 3/4 of the population. He freaked out over H1N1, Ebola and thought world war 3 was starting at the beginning of the year.”
Mom: “And you thought I was a worry wart you, gave us a good laugh 😆
Me: “😷 “I try to tell him if it was really bad there would be hundreds of cases, if not more, in all countries. I try to hold my comments to myself but it’s hard. He’s really concerned.”
Mom: “He better lock himself in the house and clean it every day sanitized” Me “Haha. He keeps buying canned food. He’s Turing into a prepper. You have no idea how freaked he was about Kelly. I was too but he was super freaking.”
This is a problem in China. I know they have weird sicknesses there from time to time due to the Wet Markets. China has smart scientists and physicians, they’ll figure this out.
There are conspiracy theories about just what this virus is. Some people think it is a bio-weapon that escaped the facility in Wuhan. Some people think the USA created it to kill causes havoc in China. Some say the virus came from a meteorite that landed not too far from Wuhan. There are so many ridiculous theories.
I believe it came from some kind animal but… what if it is a bio-weapon. 🤔 I made up my own conspiracy theory: since it’s mostly the elderly and sick people that are dying. Is it possible that someone created a virus to kill off the people that are the most drain on healthcare systems worldwide? Is there such a thing as the Illuminati and, if so, are they behind this? Just because the outbreak started in China doesn’t mean someone didn’t plant a virus there, the world will think it’s just another virus that crossed species. Too inconceivable. I watch too many dystopian movies.
My husband is obsessed with watching the Twitter feeds for any updates. He would also be mortified I message those thoughts to my mother.
Oh, I almost forgot it’s Valentine’s Day ♡ 🥰
