Coronavirus journal – Day 1

“Working From Home” ©️ Chen Guttman 2020, Center, Israel

I am starting a new thing in the blog – I will be sharing my daily experience of the Coronavirus, Covid-19 pandemic, documenting my life at home and when possible, exiting to the street. This will take place in addition to my routine street photography that I share here every week and is an experiment that I don’t know if it will be sustained. Even so, I will run with this adventure and let’s see how it goes.

So, let’s start the first day of the Coronavirus Journal.


Coronavirus Statistics – 15/03/2020, 8am:

Infected – 200

Deaths – 0

Officially, our team received the instruction to work from home (hashtagWFH). These instructions came after government shut down all main education centers.

2020 is becoming pivotal year in which the lives of many will change in many ways, regardless of the health consequences to many. I have no doubt that this experience will lead more organizations to adopt at least one day of WFH when possible. ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣

With the whole family enclosed in their 4-wall confine, parents will have to lead their kids wisely or risk chaos, fights, frustration and much tears on all involved. Families will need to accommodate scheduling, planning and resource leveling to enable both parents the freedom to continue work (to some extent), to be present with their kids, to be supportive of their spouse and no less, schedule private time with oneself (whether its a hobby, workout, passion or just reading a book). ⁣⁣⁣

We have the choice to leverage this virus pandemic into a positive outcome and experience, with all the uncertainty we have at every moment. It will require us to to be present for others and to our own feelings under such circumstances. Let us all grow stronger, healthier and wiser.


The above post I posted this morning, right before plunging into my first day at Working From Home (#WFH). While the morning and afternoons will be assigned to working at my day job, the evenings will be assigned to complete the journal and completing any day job left over tasks to complete.

Rising early, around 6am I was after a morning aerobic training and a shower, the kids running around. The forest outside our apartment was already awakened amid a slight foggy curtain.

The day went rather well, as me and my spouse split our responsibilities with the kids and our own work. Afternoon was my time with the kids, and to the sounds of Brazilian Capoeira, they enjoyed dance and fight movements.

That’s it, let’s see how it will be tomorrow evening.

Stay Healthy!
