Virus Appreciation Day
About Virus Appreciation Day
When is Virus Appreciation Day? This holiday is always observed on October 3
Virus Appreciation Day is today, an October 3 holiday. It allows us to show a little respect for nasty viruses. Only a few years ago, we wouldn’t have given viruses or this holiday much thought. With the arrival of COVID, Monkeypox, and a resurgence of polio, we all are giving viruses a whole lot more attention, if not respect. As for appreciation, let’s show our appreciation for the progress that the medical and scientific world is making for both prevention and treatment. As those communities work towards eradicating these diseases, let’s practice personal protection methods as we deem appropriate fo ourselves and our families.
Unfortunately, the creators of this day did not identify themselves. Nor, did they leave a record of what kind of viruses we are supposed to appreciate on this day. Human, animal, and computer viruses readily come to mind. We sure can appreciate the seriousness and significance of both human and computer viruses.
So, let’s dedicate today to appreciating that viruses can be very serious, if not deadly. If Covid has taught us anything it’s that viruses can be persistent and evolving. So, let’s take measures to protect ourselves, our loved ones, and even our computers. to minimize the risk of serious viruses.
Perhaps Virus Appreciation Day would be better if titled Virus Awareness and Protection Day. That would make much more sense. When we find the creators of this special day, we will recommend the name change to them.
