📈What Do You Think Could Be the Cause for the Current COVID-19 Upward Surge in USA and Australia?
Since the outbreak of Covid19, the infection rate has been on the upward trend worldwide. This trend has been contained in some cases, but after sometime, it starts going up again. Despite countries world over putting strict restrictions on people movements and public gatherings, the virus has continued to spread like wild fire. Most countries with even the best health facilities and the best trained health workers, have been the worst affected by the virus. For instance USA and United Kingdom which are among the countries with the best health systems and well trained health workers are among the those with most deaths and infection rate related to Covid19. Despite all the efforts and measures put in place by the concerned authorities to contain the virus, cases of infection continue to go up worldwide. In many cases, the rate my go down a bit down, but after a while it begins to surge again like the cases in the US and Australia right now. In one of the news reports today, it was reported that in Australia and the US, the infection rates have sharply been increasing in the past few days. What do you think could be causes for such infection rate increases in these countries, despite having some of the well trained health workers and the best health facilities and even strict restrictions being put in place to contain the spread? What is your view on this situation?
Hi Jackson, I think the problem in America is that noone over there is willing to put any restrictions of movement in place to minimise the spread. There are states in America where the infections are really out of control and it will be interesting to see how effective Biden will be in stopping the spread.
As far as Australia is going the latest rise in infections came from a member of an international flight crew where the government shut down a large section of Sydney for Christmas and New Year. There was another cluster that has sprung up which was due to a transport driver that was infected by a returned traveler being transported to quarantine who then passed the virus on to a work colleague and then this person passed the virus on to two bottle shop employees and it went from there.
The most important thing here is that people need to adhere to any restrictions that are imposed. In Greater Sydney we must wear a face mask when we are indoors and there are certain other things that we are not allowed to do to stop the spread.
That’s the best overview of the situation in both countries Edward.
In Indonesia, there has been a spike in covid-19 cases due to long holidays.
People here spend their time on vacation outside the city and that mobility is the reason for the spike in Covid-19 cases
In my opinion all problems came from the non respect of the strict restrictions put in place by the government. We all know even one person can contamine a whole country if the social distance is not applied correctly and strictly.
That’s a cause for concern Ad, people should avoid such movements and gatherings as much as they can.
It could be as a result of clouding in a place, dirty environment and lack of the interest of the WHO in the life of the people except if something big is called for in the world.
That’s right, Jackson.
Many people here think that corona is just a conspiracy.
It’s so sad
I agree with you, Jackson.
But many people here still often flock, even many people hold weddings, holidays and go to coffee shops
They are not respecting social distance, and restrictions, many people think that it has been an exaggeration.
That’s right, Mr. Leno.
In my country, now people don’t believe in Covid-19 and don’t even believe in the vaccines that the government has bought from other countries (China)
Ad, if had any authority, I’d ban anything from China, be it vaccine or anything else. Id ban them.
No one trust china, i personally will never allow Chinese to enter in my country if i had the power to do so.
Hi, Mr. Leno.
Why and what reasons do you do that?
Please explain to me
Ad, the Chinese have proved to be the most dangerous on this planet. It’s said that they released this Covid19 virus intentionally, and when you realize their activities wherever they go, they are suspicious. Yes, they want to rule the world, but they are using wrong and dangerous means. By releasing this virus, they have distroyed many economies. They’re not good people.
Sorry, I can’t judge them bad guys, Mr. Jackson.
I don’t know for sure if this virus really originated in China or maybe China is the victim.
It is a conspiracy and there are no facts about it, Mr. Jackson.
I will say that here in these States it keeps going up because people who refuse to wear masks social distance and not sanitize their hands and not do enough to clear any indoor space is why th need cases are going up.And you know with these recent holidays people were still traveling although told not to.And then these events that people keep having like huge parties which a few have gotten ticketed for.They willl not heed warnings. They are just living as if everything is back to normal. I and most of us will be very glad when this has finally disappeared.
Ad, Chinese government has denied WHO investigators access to Wuhan, the epicenter of the pandemic. What do you think?
