Yesterday, 210,000 new cases of Covid-19 were registered around the world which is extremely worrying bringing the total to over 12 million people. 550,000 of them have died from the virus, however, the most startling statistic was the new record total recorded in the US. Tuesday's total of more than 60,000 new cases blew away the old record recorded last week by more than 5,000 cases.
The US just passed three million cases, according to the Center for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE) at Johns Hopkins University (JHU). The death toll stands at 132,362. Here in Holland, we have just passed 50,000 cases, however, only 17 million people live here so it's not surprising we have a lower count. I walk my dog every day so I meet many other people during my walks and the most surprising thing is, only three people I have spoken to since the Virus became a pandemic know of anyone who has had the virus. In six months only three people? I find that quite amazing.
A Dutch guy delivered our new sofa yesterday, now this guy lives in Amsterdam Southwest and has worked through the pandemic and delivers all over the country and he didn't know of anyone who had contacted the virus, he actually told my he didn't believe there was a virus, that the whole thing was some kind of scam? My sister lives in Leeds in the UK, a city of more than two million people and she doesn't know of anyone who has had the virus neither?
Now, I'm not saying there is is no Covid-19, 500,000 deaths is an awfully large number of unfortunate people, what I'm trying to say is, why do nearly all the people I talk to know of no one who has the virus. So I ask you, the reader to please leave a comment on my blog, Facebook or the Twitter feed and let me know just what is going on out there.
Since the virus was announced on New Year's Eve, 2019 the world has quickly spiralled into a ball of confusion, hate, spite and violence have exploded to unprecedented levels with the US on the verge of another civil war. Just ten minutes on your Facebook timeline or Twitter and will shock you into believing the world has actually lost its mind. In my twelve years of blogging, I have never witnessed anything quite like it. Evil is out there and it appears to be muting like a virus infecting people with hate and it's downright scary and I fear for the future
The first seven months of the most important decade in the history of mankind has been an unprecedented time of disasters and events which have literally shocked the world. Jesus said; "Now learn this illustration from the fig tree: Just as soon as its young branch grows tender and sprouts its leaves, you know that summer is near." Stay safe out there wonderful people.
