A Quarantine Memo (13.04.2020)

It was bound to happen, at one point I had to write a piece like this. Just to clear my mind, as the reflections of my windows get boring. The COVID-19 Special Reports, the deaths, the recovered, the contagious disease continues to spread and I’m self-quarantined by the authorities and my employers. Well, that is all good for now, but it makes a brother reflect on life. As I have been in this state for 30 days or about a month.

I know we have seen pictures of P.Diddy, Puff Daddy or Diddy where he turns a lot older than he usually does. I am sure many more looks older now. Because, they don’t have the team around them to give them make-up and fresh new clothes straight from the factory.

However, for the most of us. The days goes in checking emails, the twitter feed and Facebook feed. Listening to the news, talking to the close family and friends. Keeping in touch and letting the day go by. While the numbers are rising. More death, more horror and a worry of a second wave. While states, nations and whatnot plans to open up. We are looking wonder, who will be caught in the second wave, as the old people’s home is so hardly hit in the first wave and God knows who will be next in line. As doctors, nurses and front-line workers are catching it or even in quarantine themselves.

This is not easy times. The mind rumbles. The questions remains, as we don’t have vaccine, nor any sufficient medicine to cure this disease. We can think that the spoils of the American President and other gutsy people has the tricks. But then again, we would fool ourselves or let us be fooled by another fool.

Just like the people hooked on the 5G thingy, that is the same peddlers who are selling vitamin-cures to heal your skull, your dildos and whatnot. The same folks who sold Pizzagate and went mayhem on Clinton’s emails. However, the same folks will not cry loud for the thousands of dead because of the lack of preparation and concern about the virus itself. That is just so rich.

The headlines, the drama and the diplomatic squabble are bound to happen. The lack of funds, the stolen allocated funds, the ghost foundations and everything is bound to happen. The ghost workers and the grand corruption, as there was no transparency with COVID-19 Funds. There was no clear oversight nor care to look over the transfers of funds. Only spending because there was a dire need, not even look into tenders or reasons for procurement of needed goods too.

It is all just clear magic, the magicians in office using the space to enrich themselves on a tragedy. The death, the failure of state and the lack of protocol. The staring darkness of it all. While we are told to be hopeful. Be giddy and be cautious. Wash our hands, social distance and listen to guidance. However, we should still be woke.

These people who has power, needs to be regulated and questioned. They shouldn’t automatically get a pass, because of a pandemic. Yes, there is need for new measures and security of life. That is understood. However, that doesn’t mean they have a “free for all” or can “burn bridges” to secure wealth for post-COVID. We all see that.

This is a quarantine memo. It doesn’t have any answers, but just thoughts. Which you can either take as good or dismiss. However, be woke, ask questions and ask yourself if you see it as right. But remember, common sense needs to be common. Peace.
