CORONA DIARY FIRST DEATH
Thomas van der Krogt documents the Corona Crisis through urban sketching and journalism..
First death reported here today. Its becoming glaringly obvious not enough, or rather no testing is being done. Its simply isn't likely that we have the lowest infection rates of the country. Heard a story though about a mother that tried to get tested on numerous occasions but no one would listen to her. She eventually passed on her way to the hospital her crying toddler screaming "mommy come play with me, mommy, mommy...Wake up!" As CFS dragged his flushed wet face of her body. The only warmth left on her, the tears on her dress where the boy had buried his face. Welcome to the apocalypse!? Restrictions tightened more today. We are now only allowed a limited amount of people in stores. Have to go and pick up some stuff for work, but as soon as pull up into the parking lot and see a line up of about 100 people I decide they can eat fish without lemons. Funny how the world could literally be ending and people are worried about having lemon with their fish...fine, have your mercury and vitamin c....while you still can.
