Got COVID and it sucks

With Singapore relaxing the control measures and opening the arm to the world, I knew it would be just a matter of time.

But when it really hit, it still sucked.

The cough, sore through and block/running nose and headache just took all my energy away (so if this blog feels funny or illogical, you know why).

As a matter of fact, I coughed so badly that I felt my abs were growing.

Had to take time off work too, which was not the best either, not under current circumstances.

But what can I do? Whatever happened happened. Will just need to catch up.

On the other hand, it still amazes me how COVID problem can remain unsolved for so long.

First of all, its impact is BIG!

It affects almost everyone’s life. It is not some problem that only affects the “Poor” part of the world, like hunger or some other curable disease. It could affect the “Rich” part of the world even more.

The consequence is significant. World economic growth is affected. Death roll is astonishing…

Secondly, its enemy is powerful!

I mean it is us, the almighty human race!

We explored every corner on Earth and almost every other species on Earth is at our mercy. A lot would have gone extinct if not for our protection.

We sent ships to space, exploring potential colonies for our next generations.

We were even capable of killing ourselves in large scale when needed.

How do you beat that?

But of course, some benefits from Covid while the majority suffers.

Maybe we can even argue, among the minority that benefits, some would benefit more than others.

Well, that adds complexity…

The strongest fortress is always breached from inside. I guess that applies to the attaching force as well.
