Coronavirus & Warm Shanghai

With the outbreak of coronavirus in China, everyone has been more or less afflicted. I don’t know when it became a mindless habit for me to check the updated official data every morning. It couldn’t be worse to see the exponential increase in the number of new confirmed and suspected cases. When I open the curtains in the morning, the bustling crowd that usually lines up for breakfast has disappeared. The deserted streets make me feel lonely and strange. I have never stayed inside that long before and I was quite tired of limiting myself at home. However, there are many tiny and warm things happening around us that connect us to get through this. When I look at Shanghai I find warmth in it. Please remember that taking care of ourselves is the best thing we can do in this epidemic.
