  • So at this point, you probably heard the news that Boris Johnson, our prime minister, has ditched all travel corridors from countries as of Monday because of this brand new quote unquote vaccine busting mutant coronavirus strain.

  • And what this does, honestly, is it just It puts the economy in a much worse place at this point, as if we weren't already dealing with locked down.

  • Now we've got nobody coming in this country without some severe frictions on.

  • We just got more fear that's being brought into any potential tourism in this country, which, let's be honest, means any type of economic repair.

  • And every other day it seems to be a new headline.

  • There's a new strain way.

  • Don't know what's gonna happen Way could be locked down till autumn, maybe till winter.

  • And you just have to step back and ask yourself a question.

  • This is about control versus elimination.

  • That's what it is, really, And are we really going to eliminate this virus?

  • Is it really practical to keep everyone away from this strain or that strain?

  • And I just think it's not And I would I would think you probably agree with me.

  • I think we have to find a way of living with this virus and finding a way just to coexist with it.

  • Assuming that strange, they're gonna come and it's gonna keep spreading and you're not gonna be ableto isolate people.

  • I just think it's it's the wrong type of thinking, and I think we're all feeling that as well.

  • On if we don't do this, I feel like we're gonna keep getting these knee jerk reactions.

  • These lockdowns upon lockdowns upon lockdowns when they see a figure go up here or a figure go up here banning travel, banning this and banning that until we finally take a step back and say, Okay, guess what we're gonna face some losses were gonna face some struggles, but we've got a look at the long term damage of this.

  • Lock down the long term damage of something like this travel ban.

  • We have toe look at these long term implications.

  • And until we do that, it feels like we're gonna keep making these myopic and knee jerk reactions and policy based on a headline in the news that don't serve us.

  • And that's what we're doing right now.

  • We're living in a locked down based on a daily number.

  • Get that.

  • It's published in newspapers on buir, changing the course of our entire lives based on the daily number of cases of the daily number of quote unquote cova deaths.

  • When we're not looking at other daily numbers of deaths related to smoking, heart disease, Alzheimer's, whatever, um, we don't alter our lives completely based on those metrics.

  • So why are we doing it on this metric?

  • And that's the question I kind of want to leave you with.

  • Please leave your comments below.

  • Tell me, do you think we should ban travel entirely?

  • Do you think we should lock this country down even harder?

  • Do you think we should stay locked in our homes with our Children not being able to go to school with us not being able to go to the gyms with us not being able to make a living for the rest of the year?

  • Could that even ever justify some metric of people that are dying from Cove It?

  • It's a question we have to ask ourselves.

  • It's a hard question.

  • It's a very hard question, but I think we need to come up with some more creative answers.

  • Then lock it down, lock it down and lock it down.

  • So leave me your comments below.

  • I want to get your thoughts.

  • Share this with someone who might need it on.

  • I will talk to you on the next piece.

So at this point, you probably heard the news that Boris Johnson, our prime minister, has ditched all travel corridors from countries as of Monday because of this brand new quote unquote vaccine busting mutant coronavirus strain.
