South Africa Headlines News

Apart from the economic destruction wrought, it is doubtful whether lockdowns have achieved anything

When governments issue their decisions on dealing with the Covid-19 pandemic and its statistics and spread, they quite properly outline the careful thought they have given and invariably refer to being guided by the best expert advice. In reality though, very little is known about the pandemic and its spread. The “experts” and decisionmakers are fumbling about in the dark like the rest of us.

The reality is that there is probably not much man’s intervention can achieve. Like winter flu, the virus will sweep through the population. The old, infirm and seriously ill will die, pretty much on schedule, as nature intended. Most of the younger and healthy will be largely unaffected, or will soon recover from their flu and sniffles.
