The world as we knew it has changed. A quickly spreding virus named corona has forced governments around the world to shut down businesses, to close schools, and to block borders in order to save human lives. The healthcare workers and other employees in critical sectors are working around the clock while other people have been layed off from their jobs or are worried about losing their businesses. To many, the fear of getting or spreading the virus is causing stress and anxiety. An increasing number of people have lost a loved one or are fighting the disease themselves.
Like almost any Finn, I love watching ice hockey. The World Championships every spring are of course a must, but this weekend I went to see my 11-year-old cousin play in the local league (okay, I've been there two weekends in a row now, I can't even go get a cup of coffee during the game because it's too exciting, and I got my cousin's autograph - I might be becoming their biggest fan).
