    We are currently in the midst of this Pandemic and all having to self-isolate with life pretty much on hold.

    What is the situation where you are? How are you coping? etc.

    Use this thread to talk about all things pandemic related.

    I wish they'd do that to me. But no. Of course they won't.

    I technically have a heart condition too so I don't know if I should stay home, continue to go to work, or what to do in general.

    I'd prefer not dying.

    But if disappear... well... yeah...

    Well nothing is happening for me just yet. We had our Japanese guests cancelled at the anime convention we went to a few weeks ago. All events have been cancelled including the ANZAC day parade, Sydney's Vivid light show. Future conventions are all up in the air as the government has said no gatherings of more than 500 people, studio audiences are empty. The new football season that just started is being threatened to be suspended after the second round. Lots of people were and still are panic buying various items. Sydney was said to look like a ghost town yesterday on the news.....

    And most of the public are still going to work like normal with schools still being open. Jokes are being made constantly on television and by my customers. Hell even I'm still joking about it.
    How concerned am I? Well I went to see the new My Hero movie last night, it was good. But its okay guys because there was definitely less than 500 people around.

    Yuki Kaji is pretty much the only reason that a couple of my friends went to Sydney Madfest instead of staying for Melbourne's Supanova which was on the same weekend. Oof.

    As for me, I learned that my regular lifestyle is actually called "quarantine"...

    @Mafiacow I love the fact that you knew immediately what I was talking about. Yuki Kaji's panel was something we were looking forward to as well. So instead we spent the whole time wandering around looking for shit to buy. Got kind of bored without attending any panels.
    If I was going interstate for a specific guest and they got cancelled, you know I'd be cancelling my trip as well.

    I wish this could apply to me as well.

    I have made the decision to no longer go to work. I have done everything I can to find out if my heart condition puts me at a higher risk of dying from coronavirus (yes I contacted my doctor) and have pretty much received no information on this.

    I am no longer going to risk my life to go to work. I plan on sending an e-mail to them as such tonight. Whether they choose to fire me for this or not will be completely up to them.

    Welcome to Plague 2020. I guess.

    Who else would it be? XD
    I recommend Noragami, Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, Bunny Girl Senpai, Land of the Lustrous, Overlord, Monogatari Series (just for Hanekawa Tsubasa the ultimate waifu), and that you finish AssClass~
    Fun fact: there were pandemics in the 1720s, 1820s, and 1920s as well. Get your whacking sticks~

    Earlier this week in my local high street someone was taken to hospital with a group of paramedics in full hazmat suites.

    I have been told by my Neurologist to stay away from hospitals during this pandemic as I am at severe risk.

    This whole situation has now got very real for me.

    Well I sent two e-mails to my work.

    Time to wait to see what they decide to do. Fun.

    My guess? They'll fire me.

    Do you see a Cardiologist? Couldn't you try and get them to give you a letter to give to your employer?

    Yes but they say it's only borderline.

    BTW my guess was 100% correct. They fired me. Because they wouldn't give me access to the necessary equipment to work from home. Because that makes sense (it doesn't)

    Being a statistic makes me feel so good. o_O
