History repeats itself

INDEED, history repeats itself.
The ongoing pandemic  is the worst health crisis ever experienced by mankind, next only to the 1918 global health crisis that had killed millions of our early ancestors. 
Per record, the  influenza pandemic had killed more people than WWI at somewhere between 20 to 40 million. 
It was  cited as the most devastating epidemic in recorded world history.
After a quarter of a century, that pandemic with an almost the same face value  is back.
There  is no debate that the   coronavirus pandemic  has turned the world almost completely upside  down. 
This Covid 19  is   a  global catastrophe of immeasurable proportion never imagined to go down in history  as the worst ever  health crisis to halt the world’s economy to an almost complete stop. 
In fact, Covid-19 has affected mankind completely down and out — and just how our lives have changed drastically for a temporary period of time for almost two years now, and still counting.  
And as we end up another pandemic year, death counts  keep on increasing by the day.
In fact, we are now at a level of high risk, which means isolation centers are overwhelmed with Covid -19 patients.
Good grief  vaccines of various country origins are now evolving fast, hoping that soon  this  virus, now with a deadly  Delta variant that  had killed over 11  million worldwide (and counting) will be a thing of the past.
For now, there is no need to spend the holidays. Stay home is the call of the hour.
We have been into this since March  last year. And worst, there  is no light yet at the end of the tunnel. Not even a flicker can be seen at the horizon. For now.
Meantime, let’s follow health protocols. Stay safe. Keep the distance. Keep clean. Wear your mask. (ruffy44_ph2000@yahoo.com)
