PAST AND FUTURE!
The country is coming out of a difficult situation that many countries are still at the centre of an epidemic that the world has not seen for a hundred years.
When the Spanish Flu killed 50million people worldwide. No one expected this to happen especially in this day in age as we have so much technology and other changes such as the changes in science. So that inoculation of the virus Covid19 has been introduced quicker than in the past when illnesses have caused catastrophic deaths in the last 200 years. These illnesses include Tuberculosis or TB for short, polio, scarlet fever, measles, as well as the Spanish flu from 1918 to 1920
This means that the human population of the planet has been able to pull its resources and find various ways to combat the virus and stem the number of deaths worldwide, for each of these illnesses. Meaning that with all the differences in the world we can work together for a common link.
MY OPINION REGARDING THIS!
Some people believe that it isn’t real or is caused by some kind of intervention whether it be politically motivated, technology-based or even alien life form-based.
Then again I am certain there are people from 100 years ago when the Spanish flu was rife people thought similar things for their lifetime. I know that in my family that far back it wasn’t mentioned.
In my opinion, this means that it was so severe that it was best not to talk about it. Put up a stiff upper lip as the saying goes. Or there weren’t as many cases family-wise therefore meaning again it wasn’t crucial despite its devastation worldwide.
There were always people who didn’t believe what was happening at the time. Meaning that the people who have different opinions even now won’t have their opinion changed unless they catch the virus or know someone else who had it.
SO WHAT’S NEXT?
I am writing this on a Wednesday afternoon full of nerves both negative and positive because tomorrow afternoon I am having in the jab to inoculate me from Covid19. I realise that because the virus is different for everyone and the injection affects everyone differently.
There are many different ways that it could go. I am being positive because it's no different than what happens with the winter flu jab as that is no actual flu cure but there is a way to curb its effects and reduce the number of deaths.
Here in the UK, everyone over the age of 70 or has some kind of underlying problem such as cerebral palsy, asthma just to name a couple. Have the winter flu jab.
The point is to look out for those of us who are not as immune or has other problems causing physical problems with breathing. So to have the jab is a way of saving lives. Not just yourself but other members of your family and friends.
WHAT IS THE POINT?
In doing this you are not only possibly saving yourself and your friends and family members. But everyone else locally who lives near you. It will also mean that health providers like the NHS here in the UK will not be in so much demand.
MY POINT IS THIS!
There will be those who as I said in a previous paragraph who are against the virus and think of it as a political agenda or something else are being quite selfish. I get it it's their opinion but are they doctors and scientists who have worked in the wards of the sick and dying of this virus I think not!
This is a sticking point because of the nature of the way the world is also being portrayed. Some of this is the government of the country that you are living in but also the press and the way they interpret what is being said by the professionals who know what they are talking about.
I am just a disabled person with my own opinion who tries to be objective on certain issues such as this because I know that I would rather be part of the solution than be part of the problem.
To end this post I just want to show the two sides of the story and perhaps you will make a decision that is good for everyone, not just yourself. Because although you are one person your own life affects many others not just your own. If you can’t think of it this way think of it as a pebble hitting the water with the ripples circulating out.
Just make up your own mind with facts and think about what you are doing and how it affects everyone, not just you!
