      Asia. Maybe you should get paid more, but to ask about it in a forum like this is rather shamefully put. You make yourself look not like a warrior, but someone interested in money. That very disappointing, may be you don’t need to be on the front line.

    It’s very good that they are doing well, and that one has already fully recover, but. Don’t let your guard down because of those doing well, and recovering. Just remember , it’s highly possible that others are infected already from those who are positive, or even the ones that recover. Keep doing physical distancing, washing hands, staying home. Be hopeful, but don’t parade around celebrating yet.
