The Next Day

I am now back at school. It is first hour. I had just answered a question for AP Environmental Science, which is the class I am in. I brought breath mints to school, which I am giving to my friends to torture them (haha, they cause burning because it is THAT minty.)

My teacher for this class is very kind and polite. Apparently he was in the military before he started teaching classes about the environment. I couldn't imagine him being in the military, he seems too soft for that.

I'm being asked to read chapter 8 of this online book right now. So I'll be back soon! I'm not finished with it, but I've gotten like a 4th of the way through it.

In class, we are talking about the Coronavirus, or CoVID-19. Everyone I know, even my parents, are talking about it. This virus is a cousin of the SARS and MERS viruses (which I didn't even know existed until this virus got big,) and symptoms include trouble breathing, coughing, and wheezing. The gestation period of the virus is 2 to 3 weeks, which means that it can spead while the host has it for two to three weeks until symptoms start appearing. This is bad. Right now, Italy and China are heavily affected by it. The country I live in, the United States, has over 1,500 cases. Apparently, there could be 100,000 to 200,000 million people in the US alone sick. And millions die. That is really scary. The last time I remember anybody dying that much, I was learning about it in history class. 0,0 I can't imagine living through that big of an epidemic.

My old school district in Ann Arbor, Michigan, is already closed for three weeks. I wonder if my school district will be next.

See you tomorrow.
