Woke up in the morning and reached for the phone to find the number of new infections. At noon, check the newly updated case. At 8 pm, waiting for news to summarize the epidemic situation for the day. The numbers grew impatiently. Binh Duong, Dong Nai, Dong Thap … suddenly became hot satellites around the epidemic center Ho Chi Minh City. But when we have not seen any of our acquaintances, we all have the feeling that the epidemic is in some street, not our own.
Then the other day, behind my house was F0 at home because it doesn’t matter if Ho Chi Minh City is piloted or there is no place for centralized isolation. Yesterday, the whole family of an employee of my company, who always worked from home, suddenly became tired, went to the hospital to check, and was quite positive. A series of information about acquaintances and nuns who are also F… The government had just prepared for the scenario of 10,000 cases, the next day it was 15,000 cases, the city had just planned for 20,000 patients, then that evening it was more than 22,000 cases. Translation looms in front of every house.
Translated across our lane today, we also try to smile and accept. Accept to calm down, each individual figure out how to take care of themselves. Accept to let each family calmly find a decision to protect each other, protect the rice cooker and daily joys. Accept to spend time learning how to live with it so that it is wise and effective in the new normal state to last.
