The New Normal: Sandwiched between a Dangerous Pandemic and an Inept Government
Well it has not got better. In fact it is getting much much worse. The rate of infections are increasing massively and the number of people dying has increased massively. Neighbouring countries are actually improving but that is not the case here, it’s getting out of hand. Why is COVID 19 getting worse in this country, who is to blame?
I would point the figure in one direction, the government response. It has been a joke. No lock-down, they just did not bother. No national response, let the regional governors sort out this mess. No leadership, let a spokesperson speak on behalf or the President and Minister of Health, where are they hiding? Encouraging people to pray, that means they will still go to places of worship, that’s the best thing to help the virus spread yet that has been the advise from day one and that is what you can expect when unqualified people get into government positions, completely illogical decisions.
Now for the latest rhetoric, “we will develop a cure for the virus”. Yeah sure you will, I really believe you will a month or two after they have globally discovered a cure and that could be many months from now. It’s just talk, talk from a government that has actually made little or no real attempt to combat this virus. The plan has been to hid the figures by under-reporting and get the population back to work as soon as possible. Lets now ease restrictions when it is getting worse…..illogical and expected.
So in the next month of so when this pandemic continues to worsen expect the government to echo, “it’s the new normal” lets all move forward. They are just masking the truth, they have completely failed. They did not even try they, just want poor people to go back to work and if they are exposed to this virus, oh well we have lots more people to take their place. Maybe you can enjoy a massage with a happy ending while wearing an astronuats helmet.
This mindset will be their undoing in a few months time. The country will be categorised as a high risk place to travel, the citizens will be banned from entering other countries and their will be a lack of commercial flights. Anyone who returns from a holiday will most likely have to go into quarantine for 14 days when returning to their country of origin. Who wants that at the end of a holiday. No this will hurt them economically and the virus will just continue to spread. Tourism will be smashed.
You might be able to fool your own population but you will not be able to fool citizens and governments of neighbouring countries.
Your attempts to massively under-report and hid the figures will only hurt your country. What is worse? A global pandemic or a completely useless government” I would suggest the latter.
