Humans of Covid-19 AU: Felix

Title (Dublin Core)

Humans of Covid-19 AU: Felix

Description (Dublin Core)

“It’s strange that as days go by, I'm reminded very much of the time when I was a young boy in Shanghai, under the Japanese troops, and we had ration books. I was about 8 and I would have to wake up at 4.30 or 5.00 in the morning for sugar or rice. So there's the same kind of feelings of stress, with tension in the air. Instead of Japanese troops around, there's a deadly virus menacing us.
I don’t really have to adjust to this life; it’s the young people that have to. We don’t go out that much anyway in non-corona conditions.
I listened to Bill Gate’s Ted Talk given in 2015, where he spoke about precisely this, and how we were not ready to handle a pandemic. In that sense, some knowledgeable people could have predicted this.
In terms of immensity, this is probably one of the biggest possible events imaginable.”

Instagram post on Felix, a facilitator, and his experience during the pandemic, which was created by a psychology student living in Melbourne who was interested to hear about how COVID-19 was impacting on different peoples’ lives.
