Soo... COVID-19, final exams, and graduation

A Forum Thread for GameBanana

This is my first time making this thread in this section. But yeah.

So here in the Philippines, we have another pandemic issue couple of days ago. The spreading started out from people trying to escape the Global City, Manila, and arrived in other regions and islands. Recently, the university where I'm at announced an advisory that final exams and graduation have been cancelled. Like really, I was so prepared to take the exam, spend all day and night to memorise my role for my group project, and enjoy my Summer. But I guess this ruins it. I don't know if I could feel happy about it or upset.

Oh boy. 2020 started out with a blast, isn't it?
Let us hope to protect ourselves from harm and stay safe and hygienic. Take care!

    Kinda hard to stay safe when you're job involves you getting exposed to 1000s of people every day. 2-3 days ago a lady was coughing her lungs off as I was passing by and I haven't felt well since. Might have it and not know it, or might be a regular flu. Oh, well.

    It's really not that big of a deal. The people that are dying from it are just as susceptible to dying of the common flu. Obviously it's not something you want to get, and we do need to contain it, but this is no different that H1N1, Swine Flu, SARS, MERS, or anything else that people constantly tout as doomsday illnesses. It's gonna get worse before it gets better, but don't be an ass hole and send people into a panic.

    Best thing one can do right now is to stay the fuck home. Otherwise, I'd say that the outlook is generally positive, as there have been much more cases of people actually recovering from the disease as opposed to dying from it.

    And of course, only people susceptible to it are prone to actually catching the disease, and those are either old people, or those with pre-existing health conditions, such as heart or lung diseases, or diabetes (and generally those with suppressed or weakened immune systems). 

    But of course, we still shouldn't be taking coronavirus lightly since that's also a pandemic, just as all previous ones, which means that we all should follow the guidelines and rules imposed to us by health professionals, and especially those pertaining to the maintenance of personal hygiene, hand washing and the like, as that's probably the only way to prevent, or halt the spreading of said disease, that and, as I said in the beginning, staying home in order to prevent oneself from having contact with people either with weakened immune systems or older people, since one could be a carrier of the disease and not know it, even if they don't show symptoms because they don't belong to the vulnerable groups.

    So yeah, here's my two cents regarding this whole situation.
