Are you doomscrolling? I know I am ever since this world turned upside down. I live opposite the dedicated anti-Covid hospital in my town, I constantly see ambulances packed with white PPE-dressed medical staff so it’s virtually impossible not to feel like a constant doom and gloom is hovering above the city.

So yes, I am a doomscroller. Romania hit 4,000 new cases for a few days in a row and we have the highest daily death toll in Europe. Not bad for a nation barely counting 17 million or so. I find it fabulous that with all the bad news, I’ve still managed to avoid catching it. However, due to an entire pack of uneducated Covidiots (pun intended) not wearing or refusing to wear their mask properly, these are challenging times. No end in sight.

I’ve witnessed uneducated people and also some uneducated medical staff refusing to protect themselves or anyone else properly. This is a perfect storm.
