You have seen these people on social media. They seem to pop up faster than pimples on a teenager.

They all have some common traits:

  1. They give free generic advice and stock
  2. They guarantee you with 1000% profit, but…
  3. To get that level of profit, you have to buy some shady course which (surprise!) they are selling.
  4. They have questionable intelligence.

If you get a kick out of seeing your money disappear though, these are the perfect people for you. Have fun.

The news are talking about the packed hospitals with Covid patients.

The social media is flooded with requests for urgent requirements of oxygen beds or ventilators.

A close friend who is a front line worker informed how real the unavailability of beds is in hospitals.

Many of these situations could have been avoided by the government’s and the people’s actions. But sadly, mistakes were made. And people are paying with their lives.

Covid has been good at infecting people. But it has also been effective at exposing the systemic weaknesses of different countries.

Lack of enough beds and ventilators.

Lack of resources to control the spread of the disease.

Lack of proper leadership.

Lack of cohesive community.

Lack of management of healthcare…

Government has been pleading the public to follow social distancing and wear masks in public at all times.

But that is only limited till pleading. When in comes to action, the political leaders have allowed whatever benefits them like rallies and their vote banks like Kumbh Mela gathering.

They are trying to give a message that we care for everyone, but also hinting: not that much.

It is like your child saying she loves you and will listen to what you say, but then sneaks away to the fridge to eat that delicious ice-cream.
