A somber week with a third lockdown imminent, and do you know why? Because people decided it was a great idea to attend massive parties and they have turned into super spreading events – potentially introducing the UK variant into the country for the first time!
It’s still early days, the rumor mill is going in overdrive, fear and panic is setting in, but the reality is – those at the bottom of the social hierarchy suffer because of this. They suffer a lot. And it’s always the case, which is infuritating! Why can’t everyone just do what is needed to STOP this bloody virus??
This situation put me in a deep funk this week. Not only am I really feeling the separation from our families and friends right now, but the unfairness of what’s going on really gets to me. I see people protesting around the world, and all it means is a continuing spread and mutations of the virus, which extends the timeline for everyone.
The countries suffering the most are really hurting. They have always understood that overcoming the pandemic required a united effort (and they’ve done their part), especially because in developing countries, they know they won’t be first to get access to the vaccine – the roll-out is only just beginning. Add to that the fact rich countries are hoarding the virus, with an extra billion more than needed at this point. That could do a lot of good in the world.
It is incredibly frustrating at the moment. I want to scream at the protestors – DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA HOW INCREDIBLY CHALLENGING THIS IS FOR PEOPLE WITH THE LEAST IN THE WORLD? Yes, no one is having a good time, but do you understand starvation? That is where it is right now. It’s horrible.
Please just stop. We need to work together to overcome this crisis. It’s the only way we could ever get through it. In the meantime, help people. They need it. You’re government not doing enough? Well take a look at people who have NOTHING! And I mean nothing.
