Throughout my 40 year plus self employed career in the UK I trained myself out of necessity to be a realist.
Even after almost 18 years here I still have a daily realistic approach to my life here, monitoring the situation and government actions on an hourly basis, trying,sometimes in vain ,to separate the fact from the fake.
More than 15 months into this pandemic and I am unfortunately unable to reassure you or anyone else that the situation is improving.
I illustrate this with the tragic deaths recorded in Thailand on Monday 3rd May as 31in ONE day.
This compares to a total of 60 deaths from February to December last year.
So, from where I live as a Falang Expat I see a never ending cycle of increased infections and deaths.
This may sound extremely gloomy to some but to me personally it’s reality.
The “Light at the end of the tunnel “ may or may not be found in Vaccines once it is confirmed who is going to get them,when and where to get them,and wether there will be a choice of reputable brands. We have all been subjected to delays caused by large doses of incompetence on the part of the authorities in charge of managing this Crisis. Will that attitude ever change……Dream on!!!
