It is official. Covid-19, aka the coronavirus, is alive and spreading on our green isle. It is invisible, contagious and let's be honest, scary.

We hear the statistics from other countries. People get sick, people get isolated and yes, some people die. The best way we can protect ourselves is to wash our hands, not shake the hands of other people, wash our hands, isolate ourselves if we have been away, keep a certain distance from other people and yes, wash our hands.

I am not a medical person and know very little about Covid-19. I do know a lot about anxiety, which can spread even quicker than the virus.
