One dares to say that only a pandemic of this scale could have slowed down the rat race yet this too will prove beneficial to some of us and a sheer torture to others for the mirror that COVID-19 has forced us to look into is one that has no cracks, it reflects reality in its harshest form and unless we truly look, and come out the other side changed human beings, all this agony would have been for nothing. ― Aysha Taryam


I think that it was unfortunate that a number of public health professionals said early on when COVID-19 first emerged that annual influenza was a much more serious problem.

We can expect to see a large number of deaths moving forward. – CNN, Mar 10, 2020

And when was the last time anyone thought of quarantining the United States for seasonal influenza? – Bloomberg New, Mar 3, 2020


I will always give you hope. Here is why. We will get through this. I want you to know this. This Easter I just chilled at home. So did you. Today I told a friend who was feeling low I told her this.

When this whole thing is over it will be “do you remember when” and we will get there. This too shall pass. ― Johnny Corn

It [community COVID-19 spread] just tells us where there is testing, there are cases. And that’s what we have to understand. There is no such thing as a barrier containment to keep these out.

That’s not going to happen. – KARE-11, Feb 27, 2020

So my words of positivity. Let me be blunt. It’s gonna get really bad! I know what’s coming and I wish I didn’t. Why I have been advocating for people who just won’t believe how bad it is gonna get. IT IS NOT POLITICAL! But I am here. YOU ARE TOO. I am looking at you in the eye. YOU WILL BE OKAY! Just STAY HOME! Put your affairs in order and ride this thing out. There IS a life after this for most of us.

WE will all be a different person than we are today but that is okay! KNOW THAT! Experience changes us. Mold us. Make us who we are. YOU WILL BE FINE! WE are stronger together.

There is a life after this! ― Johnny Corn

We are in a depression. I don’t just mean economically. We are blue. It is okay to feel how you feel but don’t stay there. Think about the helpers. For example a friend got me a mask. Another friend got me cleaning supplies. She just may have saved my life! I have a fan who is making masks to help people. She elsewhere in the universe. So it’s everyone. We are stronger together! The whole world is feeling the same. So spread the love out there and accept that love in! This too shall pass! ― Johnny Corn

Using surgical masks, whether in public or being near a COVID-19 case, likely offers little protection against virus transmission.
