I have just had a genuine What The Fuck moment.
I glanced at the papers and a new headline popped up.
Now surely there must be some mistake here? Locking down an entire country of five million because of just one fucking case?
But apparently not. That is what they are doing. This really frightens me, as it shows the extent of the fear and paranoia that has gripped the world these days. Is it not verging on insanity to close down an entire country just because one person has developed a bug?
The article cites another incident which they report, apparently with a straight face –
An investigation found three people sharing a room were infected by a Delta case staying across the corridor after their doors were both open at the same time for just three to five seconds.
Surely they cannot be serious? Is the virus so lightening fast that it was just waiting for an opportunity to flash across a corridor and into an adjacent room at the first lapse in security? In five fucking seconds? They have to be having a laugh.
The scariest thing about this article is the prospect for the future for those unfortunates in New Zealand. The Virus is out there, It is endemic at this point. It is going to be everywhere probably for many generations to come. People will develop a natural immunity eventually because that’s the way nature evolves.
Except for New Zealand. They somehow think they can keep the Virus out of their country permanently. But there is only one way they can do this and that is to isolate the entire country from the rest of the world. No more travel into or out of New Zealand. No more shipping of goods into the ports, and in fact they might as well shut down and demolish their ports altogether as no foreign ships will be allowed in.
And every time someone sneezes in Auckland they shut the entire country down for three days?
Fun days ahead…
