RE: Is Europe Probably Overreacting to the Outbreak of the Coronavirus?

in Project HOPE2 years ago

Greetings friend @gandhibaba.

You have chosen to tackle a very sensitive topic.
We must be very careful to express pragmatic opinions in these moments of tragedy that humanity is facing.

I read the exchange of comments between you and Piotr and I couldn't help but be amazed by those harsh statements.
Are we cataloging people and giving value to their lives, depending on the contribution they make to the economy of their countries?
Wow, I'm in shock!

Neither Europe nor any other country in the world is overreacting.
In fact, I consider that there are governments that are not doing the minimum that is expected of them.

We are talking about human beings. I think that in this sense there are not some that are worth more than others.

The Coronavirus may not be a dangerous killer but the manner at which it spreads is nothing short of dangerous!

We cannot expect it to have killed 1 million people and then start considering it dangerous.

Your friend, Juan.

Good to read your response my dear @Juanmolina.

Thanks for the observation. That was the point I was trying to pass across to my dear @Crypto.piotr when he made those astonishing comments about the peoples of Africa. I can understand that he was a bit emotional and probably misunderstood me. By the way, my article did not in anyway advocate the views that Europe is overreacting to Covid-19. I think I did mention that the response is necessary because of the rate at which it spreads. I really do hope Europe will overcome the disease as a few African countries have done already.

We cannot expect it to have killed 1 million people and then start considering it dangerous.

Absolutely! Thanks for stopping by and for your thoughts. Cheers!

God bless you.

Amen. And you too.
