As I’m reading the comments I realize that people just keep on complaining...blah blah blah!!! Nobody is an expert with the current situation. Every nation is doing all the necessary measures and approach to contain the virus. But what we do is keep on complaining!!! Wouldn’t it be better if we think and cooperate on how we can stop the virus from spreading???

Posted in: What will life in Japan under a state of emergency look like? See in context

Each nation is doing all the necessary measures and approach to fight with this virus. There is no expert in this situation not even the most intellectual scientist can predict what is going to happen. Mother Nature or many other local governments all over the world depending to your perspective handed us a reset called quarantine. The earth is healing due to a forced break from manufacturing and over-production. Yet we, as the human race refuse to heal. We are not used to boredom. We are addicted to phone causing a high craving for entertainment, our schedules packed , travelling to every part of the world. shopping expensive items here and there. Trapped in our homes, we tend to continue the trend. So let's help the planet heal. Let's give it an opportunity to return to calm, clear waters and blue skies....there is always HOPE!!!

None of us have the right to assume or predict what the consequences are. We all are not experts...not even the most high intellect scientists nor the leaders of the world can say what is right or wrong for the prevention of the virus. Maybe it’s better for us to prioritize self discipline first than blaming others...just saying
