Everyone has heard about the Corana virus by now. The schools are closing and students will now have to adapt to learning online. But are people overreacting about the Corona virus? For example, if you have a fever on a plane you will be put in quarantine for two weeks in which time they will examine whether you have the virus or not. But for young people this could be a very traumatic experience,being abonadoned from their families or missing education for two weeks just to come out two weeks later to be told that they don't actually have the virus. I understand that the Corona virus could be deadly but being in quarantine for two weeks is not worth the mental experience young people might go through.
You also know that if any of your family members have symptoms of Covid-19 they will be in self isolation for two weeks. I don't really think it's safe for them to be with people for two weeks who have Covid-19 symptoms. This whole self isolation thing could be really stressful especially if that person is used to socializing everyday with people other than their families.
In addition, we learnt at school today that people with autism have a harder time adapting to changes. If an autistic person would have to do their lessons online and not go to school it would effect their lives dramatically and it would take them weeks to get used to these changes.
Some might say that this is all to protect people from the Corona virus and I understand that the government wants the best for the people but I think there should be another way of preventing Corona virus other than self isolation.
