The Sports Diva is interupting her usual funny and upbeat 30 Plus Teams Tour posts for something very serious.
It’s not only affecting people in the United States, but everywhere.
Two countries, Italy and China are on basically lockdown because of it.
It’s something called the Corona Virus.
It’s not the common cold or the regular flu.
This virus can kill you and it has.
Every day someone seems to contract it and unfortunately many have died from it.
It started in Wuhan, China and then spread.
Peeps weren’t taking it seriously.
Social media was full of memes making light of it.
One of the most popular ones was of a six pack of Corona beer standing by itself and in the far corner with a face mask on was a six pack of Heineken beer.
Then it happened.
It wasn’t just people in China who were dying from this disease.
They say you don’t care until it affects you.
Then it did and for some reason, people all over the world were going crazy and panicking over something that they really should have had before.
We don’t know how this virus started but my peeps really some of you don’t wash your hands coming out of the bathroom.
Are you for real right now?
This virus has hit everything and everybody.
No one is immune.
The actor Tom Hanks and his wife, Rita Wilson contracted the virus in Australia.
It’s hit the United States very hard to the effect that governors are declaring a state of emergency.
My governor, Andrew Cuomo, of New York is one of them.
The St. Patrick’s Day Parade here in New York has been canceled for the first time in years.
258 of them to be exact.
After a member of the Utah Jazz basketball team contracted the virus, ALL NBA games have been suspended until further notice.
Soccer matches in England and Italy have been cancelled because of this.
As of today, the NHL may or may not follow the NBA because many of the NBA and NHL teams share arenas.
The President has even issued a travel ban on Americans flying to Europe, although for some reason, the UK isn’t on that banned list.
What does this mean for those of us who travel whether we’re doing a 30 Plus Teams Tour or not?
Do we suddenly stop traveling?
Or do we continue and enjoy life the best way we can.
I say, it’s up to the individual.
I can only speak for the Sports Diva.
I’m concerned about this virus yes, but I don’t live in a bubble.
I will continue to enjoy my travel as long as the good Lord allows.
But I will stay aware of all the goings on with this virus.
It’s not a joke anymore.
