Fire­works con­tra­dic­tion on safety, health care

The Maui News - - Opinion -

Talk about a ma­jor con­tra­dic­tion on safety and health care for COVID-19 preven­tion with the fire­works and il­le­gal aeri­als al­lowed to go on.

The air be­came bad. Smoke and ex­treme noise. No one or very few wore a mask.

Some­one has to die be­fore they stop this il­le­gal ac­tion. A house in La­haina burned down but not be­fore putting on an early Fourth of July fire­works dis­play.

One of sev­eral days a year, not go­ing to be so bad, cope with it, I was told. One day, my home may be burnt down.

Il­le­gal stor­age of fire­works in homes; I should say now one needs to have a per­mit to store fire­works at home and have proper equip­ment to store.

COVID-19 test­ing is be­ing used to weed out those who are asymp­to­matic. True, one who takes the test can still get the virus. I rather take the test and know at that mo­ment I am not pos­i­tive and not be able to get an­other sick.
