Dear readers I hope that you are well as you can be and I hope that you’re safe.
I thought that I was getting better but now I’ve developed a chest infection probably as a result of having covid 19 symptoms. I’m sick of struggling through this but I’m also angry, well very angry to be honest.
Why am I angry you might ask. I’m angry because the government is easing the lockdown conditions whilst giving not one ounce of clarity whilst doing so.
I’m also angry because he’s doing this whilst the mortality rates of covid 19 related deaths are rising. Indeed they’ll increase again and most likely will cause a second wave of this awful disease.
Thousands of people could die, many of them will be known to us, our friends and families.
We have a prime minister who appears to be unable to do his job properly, even turning up for work is a massive effort for him and I’m sure that he’s resentful for actually having to work.
When the Prime minister does turn up for work and attempts to give a speech he makes a complete mess of it and no one really knows what to do.
His guidance is abismal, even fellow politicians are left puzzled yet some people have had to return to work with little or no protection from catching covid 19.
The government issued a statement saying that public transport should be monitored to ensure that people adhere to the quarantine conditions. This isn’t happening though and the government doesn’t care.
The government also said that people shouldn’t use public transport but they failed to realise that many low paid workers don’t have cars because they can’t afford the upkeep.
But still the mortality rates are rising and the government doesn’t care.
Covid 19 is deadly, if you are lucky enough to survive from having it you are almost always left with the side effects that last for ages.
I can attest to this myself. I had all the symptoms of covid 19 at home. I self isolated, I thought that I was recovering well.
But I thought wrong. I had accepted that the breathlessness and tiredness would stay with me for a long while but what I didn’t count on was developing a chest infection. So I’m now once again unwell.
But I’m lucky, many people have had far worse side effects of contracting covid 19.
Pneumonia, heart problems, eye problems all sorts of health issues can develop as a result of developing covid 19.
It’s no joke but the government is guilty of not taking it seriously enough. They don’t appear to care as long as they’re OK.
Boris Johnson denied that he was pushing forward with his herd immunity plans, but here we have a prime minister easing lockdown conditions whilst the mortality rates are still rising. Any concerned prime minister certainly wouldn’t be doing this.
You see in his mind commerce comes first before the well being of the people of the UK. They regard working class people with enormous disdain and if we die it doesn’t really matter to them. The less of us the better.
Herd immunity is a very attractive option to them meanwhile in New Zealand they’ve done the exact opposite. Their prime minister actually cares about the people of New Zealand and I wish we had the same over here.
So what do we do now?
Well the best advice that I can give is to continue self isolating, if you have to go out wear a mask and use hand sanitizer etc. You can never be too careful.
Check in with friends and family, keep to the social distancing rules and keep safe.
As for me I’m much the same as I was last week. I’m taking each day as it comes but now with a chest infection I feel awful.
I’m hoping that soon I’ll be back to normal because I hate complaining about myself on here and I apologise for doing so.
I’ve been doing what I can at home but with limited health and funds I’m stuck waiting to get better.
Please keep safe everyone, I’m thinking of you all. We can get through this together supporting each other.
