Whilst I understood the clear government instruction to “STAY AT HOME,” and agree with its sense, I am struggling to understand the new message, “STAY ALERT.” How does that “CONTROL THE VIRUS” and “SAVE LIVES”?
My understanding of staying alert is to heighten my awareness of my five senses and to increase my preparedness to react to any alarms that my senses raise for me.
- Can I see the virus? No!
- Can I hear the virus? No!
- Can I smell the virus? No!
- Can I taste the virus? No!
- Can I touch and feel the virus? No!
So, what should I expect to see, hear, smell, taste or feel to alert me to the imminent personal danger of a Covid-19 attack.
I shall remain vigilant and exercise caution in all of my activities and my interactions with others. My belief is that this approach will limit the threat to both myself and my friends, family and all of those people that I encounter in my daily activities.
What do you think?
