I have been away from WordPress for a while. I have been busy working on my final year projects for college. Obviously, things are changing now with coronavirus.
The first case in Ireland was on the 28th of February, and as of today, there have been 3 deaths and 785 confirmed cases in Ireland and 108 in Northern Ireland making that 893 confirmed cases on the island of Ireland. There are 173 people being treated in the hospital and 13 of those are in intensive care. There is a backlog of 40,000 people waiting to get their test results.
On top of that my mother think’s that she might have covid-19; more stress.
My mom has to wait until tomorrow before she will get to talk to a GP, even then testing might take another week to get the results.
So, with all that going on, it is hard to keep my mind focused on college work.
I have been in isolation with my girlfriend at her cottage, the garden is big, so there is plenty of space to go outside and stay safe.
There is a gym here as well. Hoping to come out of the pandemic in better shape than going into it.
