TAFKAS just received a new year’s wishes call from one if his oldest friends who lives in New York. Having been in essential near lock down for 9 months, she and her family got it. This is TAFKAS’ first first person exposure.
In her house, TAFKAS’ friend lives with her husband, her 15 year old daughter, her 20 something son and the son’s girlfriend. The son and girlfriend had a swanky apartment in Manhattan but moved back home for their voluntary lock down. TAFKAS’ friend is in her mid 40s and the husband in his late 40s.
They live in New York, the state governed by close to the worst Governor (Cuomo) and close to the worst Mayor (De Blasio).
In these last 9 months, they went everywhere in masks and gloves. Took no visitors into their home and visited no one. They were extremely cautious, yet they got Covid.
The whole house got it, except the 15 year old. Think on that.
They did not go to the hospital and were not in the ICU. They had bad symptoms for between 2-4 days, the worst of which were 2 of the people having migraines. They lost the sense of taste and smell which has been the last thing to return.
But now, without vaccine or hydroxychloroquine or bleach or Remdesivir, they are back to almost full health. And are about to go travelling … outside the US in an airplane. Think on that.
In Australia, with less than 100 infections in a country with 25% less land area than the US and 7-8% of the population, our governments want to imprison us, impoverish our children and demand that we surrender our natural rights.
Our international borders are effectively closed, the state borders are partially closed and the public and private debt flows freely. The Charlatans of Martin Place have the monetary printing presses working hard.
So TAFKAS asks, is it worth it? Is it working?
