This COVID-19 Thing

The overall population.

My generation has already been known for having less kids. In fact, not even having enough kids to replace the current population. Now, the population is seriously declining. This could be a blessing and a curse for the human race.

Non-COVID-19 Illnesses on the Rise

Like I said, I don’t think we know how bad this is. It is clear that social isolation is taking a major toll on people’s mental health, but what about other areas of health. I think of my friend who has frequent headaches and went to the doctor to learn he has Leukemia. If the outbreak was a few months earlier, he may not have gone to the doctors because headaches are not an “emergency” or because he was scared of exposing himself to this virus. How many people are putting off going to the doctor right now that unknowingly have an illness that can be terminal if not treated on time?
