The entire world has corona virus trouble
The COVID19 hard times we are living
Welcome to our article (108), World views and my views Dec. 2020
Dear readers, I have started writing this article in December 2020, because I want to keep a record of what is happening these days. I believe that the time we are living today are hard times, and there is no evidence that they will be better soon in the future. Of course, the greatest problem is the COV19 that is hard to control even today. Perhaps on the near future, we will be able to control it with this new vaccine, let us hope it works well.
Anyhow, let me make a list of the corona virus, to compare with the list that we have written last time, and with our future lists. Perhaps we need to remember these hard times, even if most of us one day will try to forget them, as being painful times. But nevertheless, what is happening needs to be remembered, just the way it is happening to tell the story. So, let us write a list like we did last time:
Anyhow, today is near the end of December 2020, the state of Victoria has gained control of the corona virus pandemic, so, it is like the other states. Anyhow, while it seems that we are gaining control, here and there other corona virus cluster start, and people are worried in case it goes out of control again. The prime minister and the premiers of each state do what they can, but whatever they do they cop some criticism, you see people are never happy, when they are asked to do unusual things. But I believe that Australia is doing better that the rest of the world. But let us make a list about what is happening.
Today the 28th of December 2020, Australia has had, 28312 cases positive and 908 deaths; the state of Victoria has, 20362 positive and 820 deaths; NSW. has 4858 positive and 53 deaths; Queensland has 1241 positive and 6 deaths; WA 855 positive and 9 deaths; SA. 571 positive 4 deaths; Tasmania 234 positive and 13 deaths; Canberra 118 positive 3 deaths; NT 73 positive no deaths.
Now, this is happening in the entire world, with over 80,000,000 people positive, and with USA at the top;
USA; 19,300,000 positive cases, and 337,000 deaths.
India; 10,200,000 positive cases and 148,000 deaths.
Brazil; 7,500,00 positive cases and 191,000 deaths.
Mexico 1,377,000 positive cases and 122,000 deaths.
These are the 4 countries with most deaths.
Looking at this list, we can say that Australia is still doing well compared to these 4 countries above. Because Australia death toll has not gone up much, some other countries it has gone up 30% or more.
In Europe, the second wave has caused many more deaths, one of the worst affected has been Italy. Today Italy has over 2,000,000 case positive and 72,000 deaths. Anyhow, at last some vaccines have been made, and soon they will start vaccinating people. We all hope for a good outcome, and this corona virus pandemic may soon be over. So, let us look at other world news.
The corona virus imagine.
The last elections in Queensland and America.
Now just to keep talking about the elections as we did last time, since we wanted to see the outcome, I can tell you this. The Queensland elections were won by the Labour Party and the premier Anastacia Palaszczuk, so, she can continue to do her job and be the premier of Queensland.
Now at that point of time, I was thinking that the elections in America could go the same way and favour the existing government. But it was not so. Because President Trump lost the elections. The greatest difference in the running of the elections was that; The Queensland premier Anastacia Palaszczuk was talking about how to avoid the COVID19 pandemic, but President Trump completely tried ignoring the corona virus pandemic. So, was this the main cause that Donald Trump lost the elections, or was something else, we do not know.
Anyhow, President Trump did not like losing the election and has not conceded defeat, but slowly is accepting he has lost, so, we all hope that the 20th of January, the president elect Joe Biden will be sworn in as the new President, and Trump will go quietly back to his business life, So, we are waiting for the new direction America will go, under the new administration.
We hope that they can guide America the right way, because the entire world needs America to be financially strong. We also need America to be a peaceful country, and it is up to this new administration to make laws that can solve the problem of racial discrimination, and hatred between the people and the police forces, as it is it seems to me that they hate each other.
Now, this is only my view and I might be wrong, but most time in the past, from this land hereunder Australia, we were hearing President Obama say to the African Americans, I am with you, and we will investigate what has happened. When he could have said something else. You see, when he said I am with you, or something like that, he was siding with the rebellious crowd, that usually would rob and bash other people, when the police came to arrest them, they would fight the police force, and the police were forced to use violent ways to arrest them.
What I am trying to say here is this; President Obama was siding too much with the people, instead of siding with the police force, he should have told the people to be good citizen and do not rob or fight with the police force, because the police had a job to do, and their job was that they must arrest those people that make trouble. So, it is the people that start this chain reaction and hatred.
During the Trump administration these things continued to happen, and Trump did nothing to fix them. So, we hope that the new administration under Joe Biden finds a way how to fix this problem, that most people thing it is racial, when it may not be completely racial, but nevertheless it needs to be fixed. Good luck Joe Biden, if you can fix this problem, you will be a good president.
The hard times can be over soon
I believe that most people will remember the year 2020 as one of the worst years of this generation, because of the corona virus pandemic. While I am writing this article, there is some hope that the worst is over, because they have started vaccinating people. So, if this vaccine works the way they believe it will work, then the worst is over, and next year will be a different year and everything can go back to normal. But we must wait and see what happens.
Anyhow, we must hope for the best outcome, we must also think and hope that something positive can come out of this negative experience. You see, we have seen that the governments of the world, can do a lot more to help the people than we thought possible. And the people can be led to do hard things, if they are explained properly what they must do for their benefit; like to stay isolated and at home for a long time, even if some of us did not follow it properly and got in trouble.
After having seen what has happened, I believe that in the future governments, should have policies that would help the people in need more that they do now. So, we may have to have governments that are more socialist and are able to use the people money to help the needy, as they have done during this pandemic. I hope this is not just my wishful thinking, and something can be done in the future.
So, let us leave behind this dreadful year 2020, because it is nearly ended, and hope that next year things will be better, the COVID19 has ended, because of the vaccine, and we are better off because we have learned how to deal with these things.
I think I have said enough in this article, and because it is the end of this year, all is left to do is to wish my readers, a safe and prosperous new year hereunder.
See you soon.
