India is like a person going through depression. India, as a country, is going through grief. And given the speed at which we are dealing with our grief, I would say, it will take us at least 5 months to reach the acceptance stage.
In the last 2 days alone, India recorded almost 5000 new Covid-19 cases. But still, our government and all the officials associated, are denying the fact that this could mean an increase in the rate of growth of Covid-19.
Continuous rise in number of people testing positive for coronavirus is expected to stabilise anytime soon: Niti Aayog member (PTI)
This is the statement made by a member of Niti Aayog.
I just want to ask him; what does he exactly mean by “anytime soon”? Anytime soon, as in a day, a week, a month; or what? This doesn’t seem to be quite an explanatory and relaxing statement.
Earth is going to end anytime soon.
It is going to rain anytime soon.
Earthquakes will tear the Earth apart anytime soon.
We will meet God anytime soon.
This is the first stage of grief. Denial! India is currently going through denial and isolation. This doesn’t seem good.
I mean, aren’t we supposed to get our heads together to be able to cope up with whatever is coming, rather than start sulking over it?
Ignorance is not always ‘BLISS’. This ignorance and period of grief on part of the officials, might lead to what would go down in the books of history as the greatest pandemic to have ever hit.
But yes, I am sure they are working on it and will come up with a scientific and logical strategy ‘anytime soon‘.
