Barking Mad

I am sure everyone has forgotten that the covid-19 crisis exploded in China over the Chinese new year. That is the annual vacation for the great majority of people in that part of the world. And do you remember what happened? THEY CANCELLED IT. CHINESE NEW YEAR in 2020 was CANCELLED.

What is the US doing about their annual holiday tomorrow 4th JULY. NOTHING. Covid 19 is ripping through the place like a hot knife through butter and they are all planning to take a break. THEY ARE ALL BARKING MAD.

But no, wait Switzerland is opening the borders and telling us countries like the UK, who have the 4th highest infection rate in the world are a SAFE place and their people can come over for their ANNUAL VACATION. WTF. Are the authorities BARKING MAD.

Covid-19 isn't going to last for a few months with these ZOMBIES in charge of the western world, its going to go on for YEARS.

You can't really cancel the 4th of July, but you can cancel all public events and activities for it. Have they not?

For the UK, don't worry, as soon as they start opening pubs back up, their infection rate will increase drastically and they will back on the risk list.

Actually the UK is currently some way down the COvid lists and the current new infection rate is roughly similar to Switzerland. Of course they are still at the tail end of their 1st wave so in a few weeks that may well all change as Susie-Q said...:

Well, the Plague started its merry little dance in 1346 and is apparently still around, so...

I'm American, but it's becoming increasingly embarrassing to admit it. I'm going to start speaking in an Australian accent and hope people will fall for it.

What a bunch of pessimists in here. Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? He'll no it wasn't. When the going gets tough, the tough get going. God bless America.
