Corona, what do we do with it?
So far, Corona has not been so tangible for me. However, today it was announced that all Schools are closed in Lower Saxony. That means I get active help and can do a longer one Relaxation break insert. The school closes directly into the Easter holidays and only then are they likely to reopen.
With that help, it probably won't work, my kids are not particularly interested in knitting and have completely different hobbies that range from Sport, from electronics to Chill in an endless loop.
Beemohr what happens in our studio?
So far, I have not noticed any impairment in the course of business. However, we are not dependent on foreign countries at all, as we are exclusively in Germany knit. My warehouse is well filled with wool, so we could definitely use it for at least 1 year Brides & Guests knit.
I also have a good one Stock for knitterswho want to shop for wool or knit kits. Just last year I got mine warehousing realigned and larger inventories built up.
What am I doing personally?
I don't go to big events, all of which have been canceled anyway - by the Wool fair, which is really great until the book fair, which I also really like. Yes, plus the usual hygiene program. Until the schools closed, I hadn't given that much thought, but somehow it feels closer now.
What about avian flu and SARS?
I can remember that there were also brief upsets where you should get vaccinated, but at some point there was no more vaccine ... and after a while it was suddenly no longer an issue. But now it's different, that Corona Topic is pushed very high. But who really knows why, maybe the media just ran out of topics or the pharmaceutical industry needs more revenues.
It is actually like this Virus only fatal for a few, even if it is tragic for each individual. Most recover quickly. There are completely others Diseaseswhich are proven to cause many more deaths: heart attacks, cancer, diabetes, pneumonia, etc.
Why is so much fear and horror now built up because of a far less threatening disease? One noticeable difference is the possibility of infection. Diseases such as cancer and heart attacks are brought about to some extent by lifestyle. Hardly any such extensive reference is made here to the fact that too much work and stress can lead to illness.
With such theses, less taxes would come in and the doctors would be unemployed and I would find it sooo nice if it less sick - generally - would exist.
What can the message be?
I know that may sound esoteric to many, but maybe there is a point in Corona. Maybe everyone should cut their workload and consumption and spend more time with their loved ones.
I can definitely do that now and I'm looking forward to spending a lot of time with my girls.
