A few days of September have already passed and here in Italy you can already feel the change of season. Although the days are still sunny, the temperatures are no longer like the summer ones and going to the beach is only worthwhile on unventilated days and during peak hours. Almost all of them will have resumed their work, because in September there are few who go on vacation; and most will have already made a plan for the next few months, which are expected to be tough from a social point of view, due to the pandemic that with the reopening of schools (next week) could trigger a new wave with consequent lockdown.
State aid will not be able to last forever, and the blocking of layoffs imposed by the Italian state could end soon .. so the sooner the vaccine is introduced the better it will be for the good of the country. This also applies to the rest of the world. Until now we have been able to observe the effects of the pandemic mainly in the spring period … but autumn is the most difficult period because in addition to the reopening of the schools there will also be the flu and the cold to worsen the situration
Also in Italy, as in most of the European countries, there is a net increase in infections. It takes place at the end of summer, which was thought to bring at least a pause to the spread of the virus, in fact many argued that the heat could help eliminate the virus. Instead, the dangerous pandemic reappears: an increase in infections, deaths, and above all hospitalizations, especially those in intensive care. Although the use of masks has been mandatory for several months, it seems that the good of hygiene are difficult to apply. Accomplice in addition to the summer also the festivity of mid-August, which certainly led to the delight of many people. But perhaps the worst is yet to come because the school year of the soles has not yet begun, which could lead to a further significant increase. Objectively I think that the government is unlikely to implement another lockdown (after the one in March-April) for many reasons: first of all for an economic factor, which is already affecting a lot in the state budget …
Sexual relations are no longer what they used to be .. that is, many things have changed. With the advent of pornography, which exploded above all with the digitization of all devices, sexual relationships have almost become independent of sexual relations … pornography can also become useful in stable relationships, especially in 2020, the year in which the pandemic has changed many things. In fact, almost certainly many couples and families have been forced and are still forced to implement security measures for social distancing. Pawel Kuczynski’s drawings are as always brilliant and it is not worth explaining all the meanings of a powerful representational work.
Herman Cain is dead., He is an American businessman and politician who for a few months in 2011 as the favorite candidate in the Republican Party primaries, died before retiring following various footsteps and various accusations of sexual harassment. Cain was 74 years old, was African American and had been hospitalized for three weeks after falling ill with COVID-19: at the end of June he had attended the controversial rally of President Donald Trump in Tulsa without wearing a mask (masks that he had repeatedly openly criticized).
Cain – born in Memphis, Tennessee, into a poor family – had become very rich and famous thanks to his career as an entrepreneur. After a few years of apprenticeship at Coca-Cola, at 36 he was appointed head of 400 Burger King restaurants in the Philadelphia area and, given the good results, he was then promoted to CEO of the Godfather’s Pizza restaurant chain. Cain arrived in 1986, restored the company and bought it in 1988, continuing to be the CEO until 1996. That year he began to devote himself more consistently to politics and in 2011 he ran for the Republican Party primaries. He didn’t seem to have a chance, but his good speaker skills and affable personality in a few months had led him to the top of the polls, ahead of Mitt Romney.
Maybe someone had some doubts or hoped at least that the emergency (at least the peak) had passed, but objectively it was almost obvious that the state of emergency in Italy was extended until the end of the year.
The infections, albeit low, are always there and are constant; they are mainly present in the northern regions, where the population density is clearly higher than in the southern Italian areas.
This news does not provide any good for the markets, which will suffer a further arrest. But frankly in March, when the pandemic broke out, it was clear that this situation would continue all year round. The decisive period will be autumn: with the reopening of the schools, in fact, a further peak of the infections is expected, which hopefully will not reach the levels at the beginning of the year.
Despite all this, there are still those who argue that the emergency is only one invention of the state that wants to impose its own dictatorship. It is true that the infections have decreased but only thanks to social distancing and masks ..
It seems that the coronavirus has motivated many people to use the pandemic to leverage their favorite social-justice issue. So, for example, we’ve seen many discussions that the poor and African-Americans were disproportionately affected by the virus, which is true. Another claim, not so obviously true, was the assertion, widely seen in the liberal media, […] […]
Predicting the future is always a great gift to face the difficulties that could trace the path of life. And even if you did not have this clairvoyance, it would still be wise to hypothesize some scenarios to sketch at least a line of foresight.
The world will no longer be the same or at least it will not be for many generations forced, in memory of the Pandemic, to apply those good rules of hygiene or social distancing. But above all, the movements will no longer be the same as before. And flights by plane will be carried out only by business needs or at the limit by indispensable holidays. Not to mention the Cruises, which at the moment those who travel the world can be counted on the palm of a hand. This does not mean that all this will lead to benefits. Just think that ships are the most polluting means of transport that exists, 100 times higher in emissions than airliners. In fact, what is evident is that the seal will begin to breathe with the drastic drop in CO2 emissions and fine dust. The Himalayas are beginning to be seen from India, dolphins appear in the canals of Venice and many animals pour into the city streets, in the absence of the usual tramway. It is unexceptionable that nature has benefited most from this Pandemic, especially if taken into consideration the fact that in recent times the average temperatures had risen to an impressive level (2019 had the hottest October ever), in addition to the fact that 2019 was the year of Greta Tunmberg, the little girl who traveled the world to speak with the powerful of the earth about safeguarding the environment.
The fact remains of how nations will behave in the future once the pandemic is over. The issues are likely to be lower, however, due to the fact that the economic repercussions that will last for years (hopefully not decades) will in any case lead to a decrease in work (and therefore industrial) and social activities.
But our unconscious gestures of social distancing will remain evident. Although in fact, with the end of the virus, social relations will be able to resume, probably also with a certain thrill due to long isolation and long abstinence, our ways will still be influenced by greater freedom, but above all awareness, which will almost certainly be more evident in Latin countries, in which, unlike the Nordic and Anglo-Saxon ones, they have a social culture characterized by warmer gestures and more direct contact.
All the rest is difficult to predict, especially if you think that the geo-political balance will depend on how states will be able to cope with this emergency.
Finding the culprit for all this worldwide upheaval is trivial for many: the virus started from China. Although many have already blamed the Chinese on the crime, and above all for not having promptly informed the scientific community of the situation, but also probably for the fact that the reported numbers of the infected and the deaths is not the one declared. By dismissing the question of whether the virus accidentally escaped or not, giving rise to conspiracy theses, which will almost certainly be talked about once the health and social but not the economic emergency is over, China’s credibility on the diplomatic issue is not never been questioned. In fact, if we analyze the last decades from the post-war period to the present, China has never worried from the conflictual point of view and the United States and any other world power. Excluding the mere economic clashes with the USA, which China is facing with the payment of tariffs on Made in China products imposed by President Trump, world diplomacy appears all too neutral and thinking of accusing the Chinese is too superficial, especially if it is believed that China is the absolute engine of the manufacture and that without it many products would not exist. China’s alliances established during the Vietnam War, on the other hand, are far too marginal.
The consideration on China’s diplomacy is not to be overlooked because thinking that a nation, with a population of 1 billion and a half and with a territory with the greatest resources of raw materials, could one day face a world conflict puts much terror. Hence probably one of the plausible reasons that the virus could be only an alternative way (or perhaps the only alternative way) to face an indirect world war, of which the singularity is perhaps that of not having allies and enemies if not from the economic point of view and on the supply of sanitary material.
There could also be more noble purposes to the thesis of the accidental nature of the Pandemic, namely that of reducing pollution, of which China has seen the benefits of the lockdown first, with a net decrease in polluting emissions.
But there could also be numerous other theses, including that that the current virus is nothing more than a simple test of other possible future viruses, whose lethality may be much greater. And even if this conspiracy thesis is not true, the fact of imagining that a virus with even greater lethality can be propagated in a natural way is only beneficial in protecting oneself and preventing itself from the future to come.
The regime established in the eastern nation, in an almost genetic way since primordial times, does nothing but obscure the truth about the real responsibility for the spread of the virus, because no Chinese would dream of opposing his government, which until now – at least since post-war period to date – has always boasted unequaled consensus.
If you then reflect on the religious and philosophical culture of the people – almost purely Shenxianesima – what comes out is a unique profile worldwide, where dedication to work is the cornerstone of a system. Although often the dedication to work is such as to even detract from the health conditions, it is seen as a sacred dedication. In fact, the Chinese are famous for sleeping on their place of work and being often abandoned in the cartoons .. This suggests that any correlation to the double end of the spread of the virus will never be revealed by a people who would die of devotion for work and for his compatriots.
Boris Johnson’s case is probably a sporadic case in which hospitalization in a public hospital was necessary. Many events have led to the conclusion that politicians, like the more affluent people, are always privileged in the treatment, tampons and timeliness of diagnoses. In Italy it is happening that the players have managed to get the swab done without any requirement instead the normal citizens must demonstrate that they have serious symptoms and respiratory complications.
Unfortunately it is always taken care of in the world that the wealthier classes are more cared for. Probably many people doubt that the wealthiest people already have a cure … and the rest of the world doesn’t know it. Obviously, all over the world is at war with anyone looking for the right drug to fight the virus before the vaccine is (hopefully) discovered. Many peolple are even convinced that they already have the right drug. Moreover, it seems very strange how very few deaths in China, even considering the falsity of numbers on real numbers ..
