No, but staying away from everyone makes it highly unlikely you'll be affected. I presume you have to shop for food. Do you exchange cash, or do you always use a bankcard? Do you make sure you stay far away from other shoppers?

I think you share your home with other workers. Do they go out, to shop or to meet other people? Do you know that they keep their distance from other people while they're out?

Please pray for my mother


I am not religious, desperate. I don't pray for anything, and I certainly wouldn't pray for safety then go out and do something dangerous. Lots of people are praying now, and lots of them are dying just the same. An American religious man insisted on keeping his church open; he's now dead, and he infected some of the people who went to his church.

There's no substitute for caution.

I said no such thing.

In the UK lockdown we're not allowed to get close to anyone unless we live in the same home.

My husband shops for us and for his mother. He takes the food she wants to her doorstep, rings the bell, and stands a few steps back until she opens the door. That's how he knows she's okay, and that's how she gets the things she wants to cook and eat. He won't go into her home until we're told it's safe—not for himself, but for her safety.

IF you are certain no one in your home is taking risks, IF as you say you go straight to your mother's home alone in your car and IF you're able to stay away from everybody else, it's probably okay.

Here in England we're told not to get close to anyone we don't live with. It's that simple.

I didn't get close to anyone except the cashier in market. I had a dream my mother and I was crying because she threw away a furniture that has my money inside.

It only takes one infected person, desperate. I expect a LOT of people had to get close to that cashier before you did.

Some people are asymptomatic, which means even they don't know they're infected, but they can still infect others. Lots of people who get covid-19 experience no more than a different kind of cold. MOST infected people just get over it and don't need to go to hospital. But some get very ill and die, even young people with no other health problems.

That's strange, coming from someone who regularly wishes he was dead.

Anyway, I hope you can read this https://edition.cnn.com/2020/04/17/euro ... index.html in translation. Turkey is handing the virus differently from the UK.

As expected. I'm pessimistic about how my country deals with covid 19. I anticipate numbers will go higher and a possible catastrophie
