IT IS NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE to avoid the news about the coronavirus or COVID-19 nowadays. A couple of days ago a red and yellow photo depicting the virus caught my eye. Dramatic indeed.
I am in no way panicked about the virus, but I realize that it is easy to be swept by the wave of fear that rises every day higher with new headlines. A Global News story related that it is getting harder to get masks and sanitizer in the Okanagan because people overbought out of panic.
But it’s not just there. All over Canada, many suppliers are running out. Partly, that is because of the daily news that keeps pouring in about the ‘one more case of’ discovered here or there.
