Coronavirus doesn’t sound like a top-notch business plan. But some corona-jerks are selling their souls to the devil, hoarding supplies, and hoping to make a quick fortune out of them.

Luckily, there are still some unsung heroes in these trying times. People are praising the selfless souls who are here to fight the viral outbreak with simple acts of kindness. Everything counts—from sharing toilet paper, to spending 2,500 dollars on masks and disinfectant only to give them away to the elders. These wholesome cases are living proof that we can and will get through it together and become stronger than ever. So don’t forget to applaud these corona-heroes in the comments!

Scroll down to see what Kristina Tamelytė, a political science lecturer at Vilnius University, told Bored Panda about the test coronavirus is putting our societies through.

Ok..now I'm crying. I have a friend whose daughter is stationed in Japan at her husbands military base. They were supposed to fly to Washington State last week to visit family. Their flight was cancelled. So they had to go online to Facebook and make the big announcement that my friend is going to be a Grandma come October. I'm Happy they're expecting, sad that they couldn't tell her parents in person and scared that this illness may kill her parents before they ever have a chance to see their grandchild. Please, Please PLEASE people....heed the healthcare experts advice and stay home when you're sick, wash your hands often, and stay safe.

Journalist Kristina Tamelytė told Bored Panda that the current health crisis is a trial of the values we've always taken for granted. “We’re used to living in an individualistic and egocentric society where the sense of community and belonging is low.” In fact, “We have never really had the time to think about how we actually live and where our societies are going.”

Now that the virus is in full swing, we have to face some really challenging questions. “Are we able to overcome this crisis and emerge as a better society? Are we able to be more attentive to others and their pain? Are we willing to let go of the urge to have everything?” Every one of us has to realize the point at which we stand, and go from there.

According to Kristina Tamelytė, we must be aware of the fear which is driving our behavior. “It’s normal that people tend to think of themselves during difficult times. But we can always be aware of our urges, preferences, and instincts.” This is what makes us humans, “And we can choose not to act accordingly,” Kristina explained.

As we are getting close to the full swing of the COVID-19 pandemic, more and more experts are praising altruism, which is among the traits needed to survive these trying times.

Kristina agrees that there have been numerous cases of exemplary behavior amid the crisis. “For instance, neighbors helping elderly people by bringing them food safely, so that they don’t have to come out and risk their health.”

However, if the crisis gets worse, we need to be prepared to see the “ugly side of human nature.” But Tamelytė is positive: “If we’re aware of what fear and selfishness could do to us, we will be able to avoid and control it.”

The store manager of the Penzance branch of Iceland confirmed that the store will be opening on Wednesday between 9-11am. Charlotte Priest said: “It will be manned by a member of management who will only be letting the elderly in.
