  • Going Viral - Infection Protection

    As the coronavirus pandemic continues, so many of us feel vulnerable and scared, as if the virus is going to infect and take us over. We wear protection in the form of masks among other things, to help prevent the spread. Some people won't leave the house without one. What are you doing in terms of protecting yourself during this pandemic?

  • Going Viral - Webucation

    As we adapt to the new living conditions caused by the coronavirus, education has been impacted in a way that it never has been before. Many schools, univerisites and colleges have opted to deliver education via the online world. My photography college, as well as Japanese language school have been impacted, and have shifted all lessons from on campus to online. Has your education been affected by the current conditions?

  • Going Viral - Stay Away

    The space between us has increased. 1.5 meters to be exact, at least in Australia. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the government and health officials have advised the world to practice social distancing, which among other rules involves being a certain distance away from those around us, actively trying to avoid touching others and limiting the number of people at gatherings, or outlawing gatherings completely. There are some who are terrified of getting close to anyone, and won't let anyone enter their personal space, and then there are people who are less worried, and others who dont care about the rules at all. What are or have been the social distancing rules where you live?

  • Going Viral - Homebound

    Are you stuck at home in isolation right now? I am. Isolation is someting I am all too familliar with. In the middle of the last decade, for a period of three years, isolation became my way of living, as due to my health, I physically couldn't leave the house, or even my bed very often. I would be so desperate to get out of the house at times that it was if I was a prisoner trying to escape the confines of alcatraz. The isolation experience during the COVID-19 pandemic has brought back many emotions and memories of that time, some of which I would rather not remember. The main difference this time around though is that my health isn't as limiting, and I have my love Eleni to keep me from going crazy. What about you? Are you still in lockdown?

  • Going Viral - Rolled Out

    During the coronavirus pandemic, there has been a tidal wave of fear hitting the world, and in response, a great multitude of terrified souls have swarmed the supermarkets and cleared the shelves of many necessary supplies. The most notable of supplies that has been panic bought is toilet paper. Stores have had no stock by the time most of us could get there, and those who have been able to get their hands on it have been stocking up, not allowing others, even those most in need, to purchase even a single roll. Those who have only had one roll left, or worse yet, none, have been afraid that they wouldn't be able to get any more. Are you one of the many panic buyers, or are you one of the forgotten souls who has had to struggle to access any amount of toilet paper or other necessary items?

  • Going Viral - Plateau

    One quote that is being drilled into all our heads by the government is that we need to "Flatten The Curve." In a nutshell, this means to reduce the number of cases to as low of a number as possible, and not let the number of infections spike again. We all need to do what we can to help prevent the spread of this infection, whether that be social distancing, isolation, wearing masks, or any other form of protection you can think of.

  • Going Viral - The Deficit

    The COVID-19 pandemic has caused millions of workers around the world to lose their jobs, and has caused businesses to limit their trading or shut down completely. No matter which of those predicaments you are in, so many are struggling financially during this crisis. So many have cried out for help from their respective governments, and thankfully some governments have provided aid and support to those who are in need, such as the JobSeeker, Jobkeeper and income support for those on welfare in Australia. Has your Government stepped in to help you survive this financially difficult time?

  • Going Viral - The Newswrap

    During the pandemic, people have been consumed by everything the media says. The media is well known for lying to cause panic and disruption to our society, however be aware of that there are truths that lie in the middle of all of the deception. Don't just stick with one source and let them dictate what you believe. Do your research and make an educated decision on what is right and what is wrong.

  • Going Viral - Heal The World

    When a pandemic hits, one of the first things that is on everyones mind is "When will there be a vaccine, or a cure?" The vaccine for our current pandemic could be years away from completion, so until then, stay as safe as possible, and try to do whatever you can to help prevent the spread.

  • Going Viral - Counting The Days

    As the days go by, and the isolation continues for people all over the world, I begin to wonder if and when this pandemic will end. Will we all make it out of here with all of our sanity in tact, or will some of us end up going insane from being trapped within our four walls at home?

  • Going Viral - Lonesome

    Throughout this time of isolation, the feeling of loneliness can creep up and take a hold of your entire being. Do what you can to stay in contact with those you love, such as social media, phone calls and video calls. These may help ease the pain, even if only temporaily.

  • Going Viral - Stranded

    The borders have been closed, countries around the world have been in lockdown, the planes have been grounded. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the whole world has gone on standstill, and along with this, travel is now very limited. Entire airlines have been shut down due to this, and thus travel has become much more difficult, and in some places it is impossible. I am one who enjoys travelling, and I am craving for it! Are you a traveller? Are you itching to get back out into the great expanse of our beautiful world?
