#Day 3

#Day 3 is Friday 27/03/2020, It has officially been announced that the United States surpassed Italy having the maximum number of cases in the world. No country want to be in the Headlines with that news.

Prince Charles and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson test positive for Covid-19. As an Indian, the picture I paint of Britain is that of a powerful country that colonised my country. I shudder thinking what the future holds with news of this gravity appearing on my phone screen.

Prince Charles and the PM will recover. And so will the others, but the fear of the virus haunts one in quarantine and isolation. Once the fear is fought with, so is the disease.

The fear, the uncertainity and the helplessness of citizens sitting at home has been defied by the work of the all doctors, medical staff and others around the country working. The ones at home derive strength from the ground warriors.

A novel, The Eyes of Darkness, published almost 40 years ago, in its fiction story mentioned a Wuhan virus as a weapon in the Laboratory. https://www.indiatoday.in/trending-news/story/-novel-predicted-wuhan-virus-40-years-before-coronavirus-outbreak-internet-is-stumped-1647261-2020-02-17 Did any health official read this book or at least read the review of the book?

I watched the movie “Contagion” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4sYSyuuLk5g it is a movie strikingly close to what’s happening. Usually facts give rise to the idea of a film, here our reality has already been predicted. Did any health official watch this movie in 2011?

After that Bill Gates talked about the next outbreak in his TEdx talk https://www.ted.com/talks/bill_gates_the_next_outbreak_we_re_not_ready?language=en#t-4432 Did any health official watch this talk in 2015?

The first time the Chinese Government confirmed that health officials were treating unknown cases of pneumonia was on 31 Dec 2019. The first death in Wuhan was announced on 11 Jan 2020. The first confirmed cases outside mainland China occurred in Japan, South Korea and Thailand was on 20 Jan 2020. Did the Health officials keep track? https://www.nytimes.com/article/coronavirus-timeline.html

Working from home is a reality now. My son too has been notified of the commencement of online sessions. The internet business is booming. I must add, the service is uninterrupted and the service providers are responding instantly, doing a wonderful job.

On a personal note we can do a lot staying at home, keep yourself updated with what’s happening not only in your country but all over the world.

Questions asked. Awaiting answers.
