Who would have believed that a quarter of the world would be told to stay in their homes?
We are living in times where COVID-19 has forced people to avoid social interaction to stop
the spread of a deadly invisible enemy. People have talked about this being a war, but to
be fair it is a war where we have to simply stay at home and not go into armed combat
like my great–grandparents in the Second World War.
People's lives are being lost from this virus, and the heroes are scientists, doctors, nurses, postmen, the supermarket staff, reporters and police. It’s good to see several Formula 1 engineers have got together on Skype and designed and engineered more ventilators, which arereally neededin hospitals around the world.
We should also think about people's mental health during quarantine and lockdown. Not
everyone is lucky to have gardens and backyards. They might be stuck in a small apartment
with a lot of people and could cause lots of arguments and problems.
What we do know is that this will come to an end. It’s a bit like when my parents drive the car and I say, ”Are we there yet?” and they reply “Soon.” I am positive!
