Work has been very stressful for the past three weeks.
Everyone is worried about the coronavirus and a lot of people are getting sick.
Everyone should be concerned about this deadly pathogen. I work in a laboratory and we have been very busy since the covid-19 virus started to spread. My co-workers and I are working 7 days a week. We rarely find time to sit back and relax. The company is paying us a lot of overtime hours, so things aren’t too terrible. We are lucky to have all of the necessary supplies like alcohol sanitizer, gloves, and masks. We also have air filtration units set up in the laboratory, so we don’t have to worry about the spread of germs, bacteria, and viruses. Unfortunately, all of the air filters for our air filtration units are on backorder right now. We ran out of air filters last week and now the indoor air quality has been compromised. The air filters are supposed to be changed every week on Monday, but we couldn’t make the swap last week. Now the air filters haven’t been changed in two weeks and it doesn’t look like the air filters will be delivered anytime soon. My co-workers and I will be in bad shape if someone brings the virus to our laboratory. Right now, we have plenty of personal protection equipment, but the staff is trying to fight a pandemic. Things are going to go downhill very quickly if we don’t have all of the items necessary to do our job properly.
