Spring is the ideal time of year to align with nature. We need to be outside in the sun and fresh air. We also need social interaction. It is time to go to the park, beach, go hiking or camping. Instead, we are in quarantine and cooped up. This worries me as what we do in one season affects us in the next season. Generally, healthy people and young people are asymptomatic or not affected in a serious way by the coronavirus. However, staying inside weakens our immunity and puts everyone at a greater risk.
So this lockdown may keep the number of cases down temporarily. However, I fear that if there is another wave of COVID-19 or the flu at the end of the year it will be more serious than need be since everyone’s health and immunity will be weakened from social isolation and limited exposure to the sun and nature.
