    • Same here. The economy is probably going to have the biggest crisis since ww2. Covid patients are priority in hospitals, so cancer patients and others that need long term care can wait even longer for their treatment. There's a peak in the number of suicides and people with depression, most victims are young people.

Laboratory results should always be interpreted in the context of the clinical presentation of the patient, and appropriate site, quality, and timing of specimen collection are required for reliable test results”.

  • The Western people really have a problem of being controlled and are much more on a self-centered view point like what about my rights, my freedom, etc. Meanwhile in Asia people tend to follow what the government is saying like for example the lockdown and wearing of face mask. They might begrudgingly follow but they will still accept the lockdown and not hold mass protest which increases the risk of the virus spreading and also wear face mask. I'm in the Philippines we had very restrictive lockdown during the early stages of the pandemic last year. It was like a ghost town or city everywhere and only handful of people are out for essential travel like buying food, I can't even travel outside my town. Not only face mask is required but a face shield as well. Covid cases are still present and there are still deaths related to it but it's not as crazy as what is happening in most Western countries. I guess the lockdown prevented the spread, there are no more lockdowns in most places and apart from the face mask and face shield, the number of people outside are now returning to normal. What we have now though are updates from the government every 15 days whether lockdown will be enforced again in some areas with high cases while other areas will continue with general community quarantine.

  • This is stupid and governments all the western world need to be locked up. PROTECT THE VULNERABLE!! There is plenty of data showing who is at risk. Lock them up and really protect them which is what they have failed spectacularly to do, especially in the UK. and let the rest of the people have their liberty. Economies are being destroyed by cowards who are afraid of being told they didn't do enough to stop the spread, when stopping the spread is the wrong focus. Which governments are talking about improving immune systems to reduce the impact of the virus? All I hear is fear, fear and more fear. The impact of lockdowns will be felt long after this virus is brought under control.

    • @Robert Brown So, my question to you: if such people refuse vaccination (no solidarity with the weakest) and later get sick, should society pay for the costs of their intensive care if they contract a bad strain of covid? In other words, should society take care of the selfish individuals that purposely neglected to care for the elderly and other vulnerable people?

      NEXT InstituteNEXT InstituteMaand geleden
    • @Robert Brown These selfish people, whose actions prolongue the agony of the retailers and restaurants who are suffering because of this pandemic... So selfish. And... Europe has good health care... I am quite sure they make the calculations that, they, themselves don't get sick. They don't understand it is all about solidarity... And they know, that if they do end up at intensive care, like so many... That society, we, will pay for their healthcare. It's shameful... and sad. But we are really not all like this... Most of us, luckily, care.
