The world has been rocked by the coronavirus pandemic, yet some people still refuse to wear masks because ‘they are uncomfortable’ or ‘they look weird’ or they ‘don’t match my outfit’. Today, MTV is allowing you and everyone you know to view their film, 76 Days, for free and they will even donate $5 per viewing to a local theater of your choice. You can check that out here.
The film is a documentary on Wuhan as they battled the pandemic. I am sending this documentary to everyone I know who does not feel the need to wear a mask and anyone who thinks that the coronavirus is nothing more than the common cold. This film proves them wrong. Very wrong. Very quickly. Very efficiently. This film shows an intimate look at how the virus affects the sick and the hospital staff.
It can be easy to think that the virus is not bad if you have not seen its effects on people, but this film makes it very clear that this virus is not something to ignore, it needs to be taken seriously. Yes, everyone is so tired of wearing a mask, taking precautions, my family even wipes off every food item when we get back from the store, but the pandemic is not over just because we have grown tired.
It is important to still take precautions and try to be as safe as possible to protect ourselves and everyone we come in contact with. If you have lost someone to the virus, or for any other reason, I am thinking about you. It is hard not being able to see the people we love, but this will end eventually and we will appreciate each moment with loved ones even more. Keep going. Keep fighting. This will end soon. Don’t give up.
Once again, click here if you want to watch 76 Days for free. Please keep in mind that this is for today only. The film is very emotional and some parts are graphic, so keep that in mind when you decide to watch it. In my opinion, it is not suitable for younger kids.
