4th Of May: The bitter truth about going to work for services
Permit me to kindly advise you to think twice before joining the multitudes that would jump into the street by 4th of May, 2020. We can’t come this far only to go back so fast! The 4th of May is not the expiration date for the corona virus, you can still contact it, so think twice before you make the decision of going out and if you finally decide to go out please, be more careful than you have ever been.
The Spanish flu of 1918 killed over 50million people, reason being that soon as the isolation was relaxed, people rushed into the streets to resume their normal lives without being mindful that the flu was still around and within the first three weeks of the relaxation, over 35million persons lost their lives. Let’s not give room for history to repeat itself. Extend your own lockdown beyond 4th of May if you can.
While countries like America, Italy and China were in lockdown, their governments were busy disinfecting the streets of their nations. While Nigerians were on lockdown, our governments would have disinfected our streets and putting measures in place to checkmate the spread of the virus. America, Italy, China are relaxing their lock down and our copy and paste governments – Federal and States – are also relaxing ours.
The citizens of the above nations will go into disinfected streets while we will carelessly rush into a highly contaminated society. Think twice!
America, China and other nations began to think of relaxing their lockdown when they started experiencing low record of Coronavirus cases but our government chose to relax our lockdown even when we are still experiencing massive increase innreported cases of the virus.
If wisdom has eluded our leaders in the aspects of decision making, let wisdom not also elude us in making our own personal decisions.
Be guided, think twice, stay home and stay safe. Those who will tell the story of this Coronavirus are those that took painstaking measures to stay indoors: you can choose to be one of us.
Be Responsible. Think. And think again.
If you find this worthwhile, please share it. 🙏
