This if true is good that social distancing works and when the rates fall we can begin to look over the parapets , in the West that is. But we'll have
to keep going for as long as it takes to burn it out. Could b a while . As far as the 'weaker health systems' go coronavirus has gotten to all of
them and has started to get a grip , they're about 2 weeks behind but on lock down anyway.
The problems that many poorer countries are having right now include clamps on social media and news posts with information like predictive studies
being labelled fake news , combined with the fact that many of the poorest must go out to work to eat , and it's adequate food that will rapidly
become a serious problem for very many people , along with the virus spreading through close quarters, very close quarters .
Even today Burundi has seen bodies left out in open streets by troops combing for them through urban sprawl , no one knows if they're Corona victims
or not . Heads of state in third world countries , and surprisingly the general public too are viewing the pandemic coming head on towards them with
bravado . You have to think of it like they do , a virus which may or may not kill you is just an only one of the problems of day to day life.
Unfortunately given the hospitalisation rate we re likely to see mass tragedy in the coming months , whether lock downs avert this is touch and go
even here. At well over 100 000 confirmed in New York over just month and global figures climbing past a million this week , c19 is out there in force
. It's a very infectious and serious disease when it's put one in three cases in hospital in Italy , viral pnumonia ( if that's what it is) is not
easy at all to contain.
We must stay on top of this but it's already making the shape of the global economy very different as we look on at the pandemics development. Good
examples of huge changes is for example mainstream clothing retailers taking 2.4 billion of business away from Bangladesh , putting many many
seamstresses immediately on the breadline there, before the wave even arrives in force.
Lockdowns become very hard to endure and enforce after several weeks and it needs about 12 weeks, the incubation period being anything up to 21 days,
and given the troublesome possibilities which reinfection / reinfectiousness bring in.
