Something Scary Was Lurking Unbeknownst to Me: The Corona Virus
I couldn’t help but obsess over it. I had the feeling I was immersed in a science-fiction movie. I had read the short story “The Birds” by Daphne du Maurier, a story that had always impressed me, a narrative set in the UK that was later made into a Hitchcock film. The short story seemed to teach a valuable message, but I never thought it would have been directly applicable to my life in 2020.

Yet, the dreadful news comes in about those innocent people who passed away in cities like Bergamo due to the dreadful Corona Virus.Black Death II?
One of the base assumptions today concerning the latest health and medical emergency, this Coronavirus, is that it is very relevant and reminiscent to the Black Death of the 12th and 13 century. During the early middle ages personal hygiene was almost non existent, sanitation, there was none, and the close proximity of people in villages and towns, like London, and Paris made the Black Death such a virulent and deadly plague. The similarity between Coronavirus and the Black Death is too uncanny not to ignore.Let’s Kill the Hunger Before It Kills the Humanity
