We are experiencing a global shutdown of the entire planet at the moment. Never thought this was possible.

I was surprised by the shutdown and its extent and decided to write a shutdown diary and save my unfiltered thoughts on the Hive Blockchain. Let's see how long I can keep up. Anyway, this and last week were very stressful for me. Panicked once, when the curfew was suddenly introduced.
The Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 is the first virus pandemic in human history, which can be followed live on the Internet since the beginning of January 2020.
I have not thought that a global shutdown of the whole planet is possible almost simultaneously in order to flatten the curve.
What is now the most important thing:
Hospitals and the national health care system system must be ramped up — no matter the cost — so that the economy can be restarted as fast as possible.
In any case, the damage from a prolonged shutdown is already enormous and could far exceed the damage caused by the virus itself. A shutdown has also high risks.
You can find my shutdown diary on my Viki Secrets Hive Blog, on a censorship-resistant, blockchain-based medium.
Hive is a hardfork of the Steem blockchain following the biggest DPOS attack in blockchain history.
I mark Day 1 as March 11th, 2020, the day the first shutdown measures in Austria came into effect (restriction of indoor/outdoor events, borders to Italy closed, shutdown of schools and universities announced).
Today is Day 12 already: China and Russia are helping the European Union <3
Stay SAFU :)
