While a hard lockdown was implemented on April 14, the fact of the matter is, it was too little too late
The Covid-19 pandemic continues to cause untold pain and suffering across the country. The daily death toll keeps rising every day, and now we have crossed the triple-digit mark, with 101 deaths within the span of 24 hours. This is the fifth time in a seven-day period that the daily record has been broken. No doubt, we are in the thick of things, and bringing the pandemic under control should take priority over all other matters.
There are no words that can console those who have lost a loved one to this pandemic. Some families have lost multiple members. The overall scale of grief Covid-19 has brought us is unfathomable. The best way to honour those who have perished is to treat this virus with the seriousness it deserves. Sadly, we have failed to do so. While a hard lockdown was implemented on April 14, the fact of the matter is, it was too little too late.
