COVID Student Journal:My dad went to four different stores today buying as much toilet paper and paper towels as he could
(Student Submission Spring 2020)
Today is April 1st and my parents have had the news playing on the living room tv all day. Apparently the united states has now over 200,000 confirmed cases of the Corona Virus. My parents are both really starting to freak out now. My dad went to four different stores today buying as much toilet paper and paper towels as he could. He also apparently spent over $2,000 on food. Both the garage refrigerator and the kitchen refrigerator are both so full that you can’t even fit anything else into them. I can’t even see all the food we have when I look in the freezer because its so perfectly packed in there that I don’t want to move it and have to organize it all for it to fit again. Just a few days ago my dad was still making jokes about the virus and now he is telling us not to go go to public places or hang out with a bunch of our friends at once. I feel like this all just accelerated so quickly and I’m not sure if I should really be that worried or not because I feel like this entire situation is being blown out of proportion a lille bit.
