Title (Dublin Core)

The beginning of Covid

Description (Dublin Core)

When this first began, people first thought that it was this crazy thing and we should be freaking out. Yes it is a big thing, but the media is just trying to blow it up, its not that bad. At first I didn't know what caused it, I just knew that it originated in China and that some how it got brought to the U.S. I first thought when we went into lock down that it would be for like a few weeks maybe even a month. Then 2 weeks turned into a month, and a month turned into 3 months, and 3 months turned into 7 months, and now we have almost been in quarantine for a year. I thought that the virus was just like another thing like influenza (flu) because it was a season where a lot of people get sick. Over this last almost year, my opinion has changed a lot. I think that the virus started in December late November, and that it didn't immerge until late February. I now think that some how someone in China caught it in late November and didn't show any symptoms. I think they then spread it to someone who showed symptoms and then that person spread it, so on and so forth. When I found out it was a lot more like the influenza (flu) then really anything else I wasn't that surprised, but I was kind of.
