Corona Diary: Day 563

Dear diary, dear readers

Slowly it becomes silly …

And those 25 unlucky persons aren’t even definitive Covid-victims but they died, like most, from “Covid-19 related death”. Whatever that may be. Let’s say my neighbour is in hospital with the real Covid-19 and only expected to be back by next week, so I mow the lawn for him … and die in a freak accident when the lawn mower runs me over. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

That is a Covid-19 related death if there ever was one. No?

South Africaโ€™s Health Minister Dr Joe Phaahla said on 8 October 2021 that the COVID-19 infection rate in the country is dropping following a 33% reduction in the last seven days. Phaahla also said that there is a 19.3% decrease in hospitalisation rates.

33%? Kidz, I kid you not, that is roughly 1/3 less infection rate! So not only is the virus less harmful by now, it’s not even aggressively infectious anymore. All that progress in the matter of a few days! Pheeew … Childsplay really.

Buuut! Will I let my guard down? Will I stop wearing my mask? Will I refuse the sanitation when I walk into a store? No way!

I hope you guys won’t become sloppy neither. Hold on, we’ll be relieved soon. Covid is on its last legs and even our stupid govts must acknowledge this sooner rather than later. Oh, talkin’ ’bout later …
