Well here we are….. a World trying to deal with Coronavirus ( Covid -19 ). Everyone an expert and yet so many varying actions have been taken try to try and deal with the issue.
Most of us are on the touchline, waiting to see just how things develop. We watch the Politicians grappling with decision making, knowing that whatever they do their decisions may well rebound upon them. Then we have the Health Experts advising the Politicians insisting that they are being guided by the ‘Science’ and facts. Advise that seems to be very different country by country. Does anyone really know!
And then we have the Medical Staff on the front line battling to keep up with winters illnesses and now these new threats. Folk who go into work everyday, folk who have been battling financial constraints over a good number of years, voicing concerns that were unheeded. Those missing resources are now much needed. Resources that unlike a light bulb cannot be turned on at the flick of a switch.
Whatever the next few months may have instore for us all, we do know that there is no quick-fix, that there are bound to be some serious loser’s ….but also that there will be no winners.
