Fun Activities for the Family In Safe and Sound Environment: During Corona Pandemic Outbreak



Coronavirus has sent Countries into Lockdown, the Global System is now Genuinely realizing the full impact of this Threat, And the poor Testing Fianco has put lives at stake, we are facing Pandemic Proportions now and in the near future!

Recent Interview Dr McNeal

”Italy is currently making selective Life and death selection decisions as will other countries deciding who lives and who dies”


Containment is World Concern on Cov19 virus exposure, reducing the most dangerous period and ”Peak” of its contagious activity

We hate it, we run from it, we event fight ourselves to get supplies in shops to avoid being infected by it!

As this develops and spreads worldwide, epidemic perhaps even pandemic proportions is possible?

THE Most Important thoughts are NOT getting infected, Staying alive and not being caught in the crossfire of going out socially and risking the Family’s Health

WE Need to Enclose ourselves in a kind of safety net as much as is humanly possible, this means that keeping our minds alert and wellbeing, activities to keep children and family members contented and focused in daily life.

Going Outside is still an option of course, but either staying close or keeping it singular where ever possible, But far the best option is to remain home especially over the PEAK Infectious Period,

So What To Do? in this situation, Social distancing doesn’t mean you have to give in to daily workouts, keeping interests and an active lifestyle does it!

I am fortunate to be able to visit the park a few mins walk from the apartment in China <video to watch>

Be Vigilant and Recognize These Basic Notable Symptoms  (Continuous cough or high temperature) take action if arise

I Can’t Even Begin to imagine how each country is applying its own measures to contain, resolve or even maintaining social balance, however I do know that whatever country you Live, Be it rich or poor, The Threat is the Same:~



effects on interevention


High Risk groups

Much talk is Focusing and localizing on the Aged and those with Preconditions, However, the simple truth is this is a Killer Virus not Dissimilar to SARS/MERS OR SPANISH FLU.

THE infection is a human threat and once in the body will work the same fundamentally with all Hosts



china Origins of coronavirus


In China Where I Currently Reside as an expat, VISAS are automatically extended to contain the cov19, However fear and concerns on how this cov19 has managed to start.

It’s origins in Wuhan hubei, still raises many questions not just for the word health organization, or critical point of views worldwide, but worst still AT HOME



Chinese doubts on gov actions


Yes Chinese People have Doubts the way this has been handled, the recent questions as to the doctor [one of the Wuhan hospital doctors] she had taken measures to advise superiors and colleagues on this new infection maybe hoping to get support and direction as to what options were available to contain what looked to her as a very possible danger to life.


WHY? accountability and secrecy


I Received further information [ via Chinese site and wechat sources here] some discontent and doubts on the quelling of a professional, who from Wuhan her concerns and educated prognosis on what has now become a world concern.

As I understand, lets say Dr Lee in this case, had approached colleagues to give rise to this problem she even escalated it to local government and disease control departments, but each took the stance that another department was to deal or hand down instructions on how to proceed.

China and Chinese attitude to things going wrong is unique, were heads go-down when problems arise and past the proverbial responsibility to another source or someone else is standard practice and commonplace.


This toing and froing meant more contagious levels and further deaths in Wuhan. This never got the recognized traction and urgency it should have and very likely could have reduced the compounded effects we are facing now today


Abroad We Find that though awareness was right there for all to see with news and reports and critical interviews about China handling of the situation, we still see a poor management globally of what can eventually be an epidemic. or Pandemic

World People seem to show no real urgency in preparation, waiting for governments to direct them, and governments having a Seemable a view of ”over there and over” here Attitude and disconnection outlook

Governments slow at responding and some even declaring State of emergencies, other head of state accept No Responsibility

Moving On we are now in the wringer, at home our very doorstep we have deaths and infections covering over 64 countries, and recently Africa reported its case.

WHO have put out information and publicized this virus for months yet here we are with nominal protection or at least preventative measures, mind boggling!


virus is that cure

But in the mean time we see a state of emergency in many countries, this means restriction on social event, social interactions and certainly clamp down or no travel policies, borders close and checks on every thing in and out of countries

It has been several months now and most of us have families, older parents, cousins, we have friends that we would meet frequently, during weekends holidays or evenings.


Self elected Quarantine

With This new social dysfunction and our smaller circles of interaction namely ”families”, we are bound to the activities and interests from within the so called ”safety of our homes”,

From Castle to Simple Huts and lifestyle, Schools are being closed, children, teens and university interns are stuck at home. Restrictions will escalate to a point where they Can not play outside freely, What next?


broken routines

Activities games, computer TV, recorded [ live broadcasts are gone} sporting events and the like are relegated to keep out the social arenas, So what do all these families find as an alternative?

  • Phone calls /Skype/ Online games
  • Movies and Historical Archives
  • News and updates
  • Animals and Pets walks


Normal Daily Health and pursuance of well-being, will Emergency Hospitalization, Dental appointments, What measures to arrange these.

It would seem this is Geographically different as for instance in:

USA :Different states May focus primarily on Gyms and jogging, baseball, US football, Hockey, swimming

UK : Group cross-country, lanes and road jogging, hiking, camping, cycling, Rugby, Cricket, Football, squash

Europe: Switzerland, France, Germany, perhaps more skiing and cycling, Climbing, squash

South-America: Football, basketball, Soft ball, Latin Dancing, skipping


lets have some attitude




keep the Balance

A question we are most certainly asking ourselves

HOW SAFE IS IT? How to keep our perspective and Positive Mental Attitude

In the Main it is Recommended not to go out exposing health to higher Risks



  1. Home exercise and well-being seems to be the safest Passage.
  2. Yoga, Taichi, Home Gym, Garden activities privately
  3. Jogging in Quiet locations or country lanes [w/ masks]
  4. Seaside ”None hot spots” w/ masks]

The limitations may seem not to bad if we keep a safety space around maybe?

But if you happen to resides a location where infected persons have been reported, this is even more compromising to the community and your family.


Shopping, Perishables and Food Supplies

do it online reduce infectious risk

Online or Super markets Suppliers, Offers the perfect position to Provide and distribute to our demands faster

DO we ignore this option and charge to shops to become crazed shoppers, buying and stockpiling for eventualities?


Slowing the Spread of COV19 is Primary and Paramount Goal at this point, Suspected Patients going to hospitals and doctors surgeries are ill-advised as part of containment

Instead recommendations and steps to go online and report your case Has been taken in the UK

Global Readiness is now in the past, we are facing a pandemic though earlier discussions with Authorities did state that COV19 is not Capable of emerging at that scale other than epidemic Proportions

Schools in countries have not all applied closure but remain vigil on exposure and activities for students

It is Imperative that we continue to keep well being healthy and positive in our homes or Localities, strength comes from within, together with supporting families and friends, help them to keep that mindset and interests in what is good in life

Protection Masks are still a Necessary Precaution and Protection Measure to act as an inhibitor so don’t leave home without It.

Seems we have a Difficult Journey ahead and must come out Wiser and Stronger?

The virus is really spreading fast and from the start, no one thought of it to be a Pandemic and today isn’t raving so many countries and causing issues to so many daily routines and that’s not good at all. The sad cases of family being separated makes it worse, but its for the safety of all. The ability to have fun moments with your family at such times is very good even if it wouldn’t be a lively as it use to. Thanks for giving these suggested activities to be involved in.

Thank you for such a great guide on the Corona virus and the fun activities that we can do at home with the children during this time.  In fact the other day I found that my children had made some lime after watching some U tube videos and at first I was so mad about it as to why they wasted a lot of toothpaste.  I didn’t see the creativity side of things.  Thanks for bringing that out to me.  We hope that the spread of the virus will not be too much.  So far we have 7 cases here in Kenya and it has spread to the neighboring countries like Tanzania and Rwanda. We can only self quarantine to reduce the chances of infection and multiplication of the virus.

hello Rutz
