Corona - there is sheer horror in the world about the Covid-19 virus

  • Published in World

The numbers are frightening

 

Statistics show that the death toll is currently rising

Even Donald Trump has understood that it is not a cold that goes away like this.

His press conference tonight was like a funeral.

In the United States, up to 250,000 deaths are expected.

The virus has been underestimated. In New York, the death toll of infected people is exceptionally high.

Trump swore in one of his usual speeches, in which he praised himself and his followers "over the green clover", the Americans for two very, very painful weeks. 

Spain has again suffered 849 victims within 24 hours, a total of 8,189 people have fallen victim to the COVID-19 epidemic. 

In Italy, the scapegoat has been identified by right-wing haters. agitator number 1, Matteo Salvini,  pointed at Germany.

The truth is different:

A comedian, Tullio Solenghi, had given him a good start with a downright hate speech against Germany. The frontman of the right-wing scum took this as an opportunity to demonstrate his political incompetence once again in the parliament in Rome.

The crisis does not end in Iran. The country, which is struggling with UN sanctions because of its controversial nuclear program, is asking for help from abroad.

El Pais: Juan Carlos investigated by Swiss public prosecuter in Geneva

El Pais: Once a role model, Juan Carlos of Spain has shown his real face behind the scenes. Again it is about millions of money laundering of the abdicated King of Spain, who transferred more than 50 million Euros from a transfer of the Saudi King to a Panama Foundation of Juan Carlos to his former concubine without her knowledge. Now the Geneva public prosecutor's office in the person of prosecutor Bertossa is investigating the ex-monarch of Spain, who had previously attracted unpleasant attention because of his passion for hunting in Botswana.

SARS Covid19 and the consequences - We stay at home and practice social distancing

  • Published in World

 

Loss of reality is a matter of life and death.

What is so difficult for some contemporaries to understand about this, no one can comprehend. 

After almost the whole of Europe is in a coronavirus-influenced exit restriction, there are still people who think they have to have bigger parties to stay in touch. In this respect, madness knows no bounds.

 

Those who do not stay at home may make themselves the murderer of their neighbour. No one has that intention. But pure ignorance and stupidity lead to so-called Corona parties.

 

How can groups get together to have parties while elsewhere people are dying from the virus they spread?

 

The generation of the fun society has lost touch with reality. This issue isn't a movie on a cable network; it's the sheer reality. This reality is far crueller than the hollow gibberish of a late-pubescent 23-year-old who believes that he or his immediate environment is immune to SARS Covid 19. Young people are also affected by lung disease. And die. 

 

The state is threatening punishment. The question remains how to punish people who do not understand the necessity in such a biblical crisis. The risk of permanent virus infestation up to the supposed herd immunity, after infecting an estimated 70% of the population, is quite high. Corona, as even the last should have understood, is not a type of beer that can be poured and gulped down. Everyone will have something from Corona for a long time. 

 

Europe's understanding of freedom and the desire for other shores certainly does not set an initial limit to the establishment of a dictatorship, as was read in the social networks.

 

Entirely only, the health system has already reached the limits of what is possible. There is only a certain number of ventilators available to patients. Thanks are due with the utmost respect to those who endanger their own lives to cure the patients. Also, the cashiers at the many cash registers, who make people's lives possible, are in the front line against the virus that can also infect them at any time.

In this context, what doctors and nursing staff can give is exhausted. 

It is not only in Spain and Italy where the situation is dramatic. In Madrid and the Corona hotspot Bergamo, a drama of undreamt-of magnitude is looming on the horizon. The world is entirely overwhelmed by a virus that has been warned of for years, decades. It does not help to turn a blind eye to the suffering of the sick and those who have to fight the immediate consequences of the daily smouldering corona crisis. The images of the military trucks driving away the corpses are probably one of the symptoms of the carelessness that the world now has to attribute to itself. Even, if it shakes to the core, what is happening in extreme mercilessness, so to speak, before the eyes of the world public. Yet, the experts will not be able to say how the demoralized population can be helped soon. The comparison with the plague, smallpox, cholera or typhoid fever is misleading. Modern medicine will find a way. It is probably because the world has known about the SARS virus for more than a decade. Then and in the time since SARS has been far away. This pandemic virus was warned not just once, but in many meetings and calls by the WHO, the United Nations World Health Organisation.



Toilet paper hoarders

 

The ordinary Homo sapiens could imagine a lot before the crisis. The fact that once in one of the leading industrial nations of this world, toilet paper would be hoarded as if there were no tomorrow is in keeping with the spirit of the times. The fact that this led to skirmishes and real arguments at the cash register is something that leaves the average citizen speechless. Noodles and rice, potatoes and meat, everyone could understand if the stock had to be a little larger in uncertain times. Some contemporaries seem to have a chronic distrust of the state's statements regarding the supply situation. 

Again, this concern is unfounded because the governments have a strategic reserve for decades. 

 

Donald Trump - the apocalyptic fake news rider from the Wild West

 

 

Donald Trump, the self-proclaimed doer, learns for the first time that money cannot cure a crisis. Now he still feels like a warlord, with anti-malarial drugs. Trump first thinks about the financial aspect of the situation and not about the people, the suffering and the possible consequences. He intends to maximize profits. 

The martial behaviour of an uninformed person is Trump's homemade disaster.

Angela Merkel expressed it differently in her television address: the most severe crisis since World War II. To compare World War II or its end with the invisible enemy Covid 2019 is also due to the situation.

 

Even politicians are only human; populists expose themselves through the virus as completely incompetent puppets of their system, which they have created in complete ignorance of competence and political blindness, like Boris Johnson in England. The population must fear an absolute catastrophe. 

 

You might be tempted to understand Trump as the apocalyptic horseman, when he then wants to give every American a 1000 $ bill with his new concepts about helicopter money, and sends a friendly letter to his friend Kim Jong-un, brother in spirit and also cheeseburger-lover, about the friendship between him and the North Korean dictator after all. However, at the moment, there are other things demanded of Washington's ruler than to emphasize the good relations with North Korea. But even Kim's sister, Kim yo un, had to emphasize that Trump wants to maintain the friendship with her brother to attract attention again. 

 

Martial language

 

French President Emmanuel Macron also used these comparisons, saying that France was at war against the virus - the coronavirus.  Meanwhile, field hospitals are being established in France and Baden-Wuerttemberg is taking in sick people from France's completely overburdened health system. 

The brittle apparatuses of Europe are gaining momentum. Sometimes we no longer know what to be more afraid of, the virus or the economic crisis that will follow, which once again serves any fear of the disintegration of the economic structure of Europe. 

 

Messenger of Terror

As in every crisis, the ambassadors of horror come with news that the world can only marvel at secret laboratories - a conspiracy by criminals in China, mutual recriminations. China accused the USA of having brought the virus into the country through some members of the army. The USA and numerous other Western nations publicly reprimanded the unwillingness of the People's Republic of China to have wholly underestimated the virus at the beginning of the outbreak in Wuhan and to have suppressed the news of the "Chinese virus" with the methods of a totalitarian regime.

 

One wonders whether the figures from China are correct or whether the epidemic simply changed its location. 

 

Criminal networks in China claim to have made money from the crisis.  These are accusations that are difficult to prove. But they cannot be refuted either. In North Korea, there are said to be no diseases so far, which nobody can imagine any more. Comrade Kim even had time to watch another missile test through the telescope and to devote himself to his favourite pastime, the war game. There is nothing in the North Korean media to indicate any infection. Allegedly, the excellent cooperation between the regime in Pyongyang and Beijing at the beginning of the crisis had helped to ensure that North Korea's hunger and missile paradise was spared the capitalist virus.

 

But the world's greatest crisis will only come when the virus breaks its path in Africa and depopulates entire regions. The current hotspot is in South Africa, and here on the ground, a corrupt regime has destroyed the health system. Due to the many refugees in South Africa and the crowded squatter quarters, the virus will be able to multiply unhindered. 

Here, too, only social distancing and the unrestricted observance of curfews will help.
