Cau­tion over Covid

Bangkok Post - - OPINION -

The Is­raeli govern­ment an­nounced last week that it was lock­ing down the coun­try for a sec­ond time. This should serve as a cau­tion­ary tale for all other na­tions.

At the be­gin­ning of the Covid-19 pan­demic, the Jewish state was looked upon as an ex­em­plar of how a coun­try should deal with the coronaviru­s, as the rates of in­fec­tion were very low.

But jump six months later, and the coun­try now has one of the high­est rates per capita of coronaviru­s in the world.

As your pa­per has em­pha­sised here, due dili­gence must con­tin­u­ally be prac­tised when deal­ing with the coronaviru­s.

It does not mat­ter how low that the rates were pre­vi­ously; once the virus takes hold it will start spread­ing quickly if proper pre­cau­tions are not taken against it, no mat­ter what the coun­try. PAUL
