The COVID-19 Tsunami and Tidal Wave

The COVID-19 Tsunami and Tidal Wave

First we had the First Minister of Scotland referring to the Omicron [anagram for Moronic] variant as a "tsunami" of cases. Then we had the Prime Minister using the terminology of "tidal wave":

On the 13th of December the Scottish MP news grabber Humza Yousaf stated "the sheer weight of cases of the new Omicron variant", still when there were only a few sporadic cases:

They all think they're staring in a Hollywood action film.

Johnson's announcement continued along the same old lines of trench warfare and digging in and sticking to the same flawed procedure. He said:

  • Medical appointments will also be postponed to focus on boosters --> What, again!

  • Covid alert level was raised to 4 --> You'd think it was WWIII.

  • People have been told to work from home --> What, again!

  • "I'm afraid we're now facing an emergency in our battle" --> More war metaphors.

A Moronic response to Omicron.

How many times does it have to be said. Lockdown, social-distancing, face nappies, track & trace, Vaccine No. 1, Vaccine No. 2, Vaccine No. 3 (Booster), Vaccine No. 4, ... None of it stops the spread of CVs. Nearly 2 years of this nonsense. This could go on for decades until someone breaks this Moronic cycle and says enough is enough.
