It so happened that the first quarantine zone in Russia fell precisely in my hometown. Watching mass hysteria, I wanted to scream and say: "People stop, stop cursing at each other, stop the hate, and don't be afraid of your relatives and neighbors―calm down, everything will be fine.

After a couple of days, the shelves with buckwheat and toilet paper in the stores were empty. So I wrote to friends from different parts of the world and I found out that they buy pasta in Italy, rice in China, all products in Spain and the USA, sugar in Germany, matches and butter in Ukraine, etc.

What is happening now in the world is terrible and very scary, but we must remain human and support each other because we are all equal to the virus.
