Eleven million people live in Wuhan, China, more than New York or London. And the Chinese government locked it down. The Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) produced a chilling view of the ground zero coronavirus. This documentary provides incredible insight into how this virus arose and what it does to the human social fabric.
ABC’s ability to produce this journalism in near real-time amazes me.
I watched this documentary yesterday and it deeply troubles me. In my life, I’ve always found that the truth, no matter how unsettling or bitter, has served me well.
Are you prepared for the possible devastating effects this virus may have on our society? I hesitate to raise too strong of an alarm; I don’t want to appear like some worry-wart who over-reacts.
As people with diabetes, we are especially vulnerable at this time.
But I think we can all take action now to protect ourselves. I am making and executing plans to allow me to isolate myself from the general population for at least a few weeks. It’s time to get your house in order and your blood glucose closer to normal levels.
I hope I’m wrong about what I fear may happen here but I still choose to prepare, nonetheless. I wish everyone good health and good fortune in the face of this serious threat.
