CLOSE ATTICA DOWN as it seem to be the Hotspot for this virus. AND stop tourists coming into the country — it’s not f*****g rocket science !!!
Almost without exception, every country is completely mishandling the Novel Coronavirus. The reason is quite simple and quite obvious: the workings of the mass media and the workings of politics. The mass media like to sensationalise and sell more newspapers or get more tv viewers; politicians like to pick up on the media exaggerations and pretend that they have a quick-fix for these and everyone should be oh-so-impressed.
Neither of these two categories of professionals has the slightest interest in science, nor understanding of it. Moreover, new problems require a high degree of intelligence and flexibility to cope quickly: these also are absent from these two professions.
Moreover, your comment about rocket science is plain silly. The mechanical knowledge required to make reliable rockets is centuries old, even if the technology (such as computer control) is newer. Importantly, there is no need to think in an original and creative way to make rockets. This is exactly what was required with Covid-19 and it is exactly what is still missing. We are stuck with medical undergraduate textbook ideas and crude mathematical models that actually lack any dynamic component of how a virus spreads — in other words, even the scientists managing the epidemic are totally lack-lustre.
And if you want to close down Attika, you may as well close down the whole world. Forget about everything else, such as food, water, electricity, manufacturing, education, governance… let’s close down the world (again!) and see how long it takes all of us to die. Your comment is probably the stupidest I have read in my life (and I have read many).
Are we allowed to disrespect others on this site?
I understand Mr Finlay’s point of view, but I can’t comprehend how calling someone stupid due to their opinion is ok.
apologies for this. unfortunately, we have some notorious ‘smart’ folks here whose comments pass through moderation when cats are sleeping…
you’re free to stay home if you like. you can even double-mask if that suits you. what makes you think you have a right to ‘close down’ a whole region of a country, with millions of people? those people and that land do not belong to you.
Most of the tourists from other countries are NOT to blame! We are fully vaccinated, or tested repeatedly… Can’t you see the data? It is the youth- of all nations, Greek in particular- partying all night! No measures and no distance, drinking and dancing all night in clubs.I was in Thessaloniki last Sathurday. Ladadika was shaking all night… And I understand the needs of the youth, they are young and want to live freely and have a good time, but… Some stricter measures should be put to place there. But no lockdown again , or masks outside, proven to be unnecessary, oppressive and wrong.
