As Covid-19 infections appeared to begin displaying some indicators of hope within the UK, US and so on. (whereas extreme state of affairs continues in India), listening to the media experiences which traced the event of Covid-19 made me understand that Coral Princess was one of many early sizzling spots for Covid-19, (aside from Wuhan, China.) I virtually have forgotten about the truth that Japan was one of many first international locations (aside from China) that had instances of Covid-19. As I understand that we’re nonetheless a lot behind vaccination not solely amongst G7, but in addition different superior/creating economies, I couldn’t however marvel what has been achieved in Japan.
I noticed the article on the entrance web page of Nikkei a number of days in the past with the headline “What has been achieved for a yr?” and different media experiences that point out the shortage of systematic strategy to contact and hint, monitoring the infections and “phantasm” of excellent healthcare and hospital programs and logistics. Many causes and excuses have been made however, what is apparent is that we now have little sense of urgency, absence of clear accountability and authority for determination making and no transparency to talk of.
It virtually appears as if we have been out for lunch for an entire yr, doing nothing.
I imagine we want versatile thoughts and a few humorousness when confronted with unprecedented disaster like Covid-19 to develop artistic and drastic options. It isn’t clear whether or not we now have any left. Lunch for an entire yr is a bit an excessive amount of.
