Back in March I prophesied (to much derision) that sub-saharan Africa and South America would be devastated. Specifically people genetically from those areas, simply because they avoided the Eurasian pandemics of the last several thousand years or so, and that Indigenous South Americans have an immune system that is aimed at parasites rather than viruses.
Incidentally, I see that the "it will never happen to me and sod my Grandparents and anybody ill" types have been out enjoying themselves as if there is absolutely no threat to anybody. No thought for the tens of thousands of "other people" who could die because of their selfishness. Twats the lot of them. The only sad part is they will probably get it and survive but all the vulnerable people they infect will, as if by some sort of unfortunate no guilt magic, cease to complain.
I see a number of people who are either shielding or in lock down. It is a pleasure to chat (from a safe distance), give a bit of morale, an anecdote etc. Anything to make their day a little bit better. Luckily (for my sanity) the people that I see tend to be sensible as do their families. Unfortunately the number of others that I fear will die in the near future due to the selfishness of their progeny is rather large. Second spike? The idiots make it a certainty. Unfortunately, whilst i fully understand the need to get the economy going again, the idiots don't have any perseverance. With luck they will have received a sufficient viral load this last week. Everybody sensible I know is of the same opinion, "I'll wait a few more weeks to be sure". I will be most put out if I pop my clogs because some immature twat decided that none of it is relevant as it probably wouldn't affect him/her too badly. Note: I am not old/ill. I will however haunt the selfish tyke(s). They have no staying power, but they will find that I have!
This ought to do it...
