As the world faces the unprecedented loss of life as the result of the COVID-19 Corona Virus, it brings it home that life can be fine one day and not the next. In the UK we are facing never before seen unexpected loss into the thousands as a result of this pandemic, and now is when we begin to understand just how fragile life truly is, especially for people with underlying health conditions.
When there is a death in the family there is not the possible amount of preparation a person can do which will lessen the effects that it has on the remaining members of the family, especially and most severely when the loss is unexpected and not anticipated. Studies have shown that depending on the nature of death, the ripple effects will be felt in different ways for different people, at different psychological levels for varying periods of time. Tragic loss can occur when least expected in the form of accidental deaths, suicide, late-stage miscarriage and stillbirth, and still more unthinkable scenarios involving children, young adults, and generally, physically healthy individuals which can leave any person wondering “why them” and “why now”. Most of us hope that when our time comes, we will be privileged enough to go peacefully in our sleep, but the reality is that this is not often simply not the case.
By the time a person is infected with the virus, it can still take 2 – 14 days for symptoms to manifest during which time a person may pass it on to countless and untold numbers of other people. As a community, the time has come to take all precautions and stick together while staying positive and sanitized.
