It has been two months since I first spoke about this virus crisis, and since then the 'crisis' itself has shifted focus.
The sanitary crisis in itself seems to be slowly getting better (is it really or is it a premeditated move ? I will leave it to your judgement), but the focus is now moving into the inevitable economic crisis.
It is all very complex, perhaps too complex to be limited to a blog post but I would like to discuss one aspect of it, one that is the least spoken about here - our food system.
I don't know about you, but I have seen more fakes circulating in this weird time than any other time before. Fake news and nonsense information.. All going to fuel in the misunderstanding of this virus. The fake news I have came across ranged from those massively alarmist and those which stated that it is all a conspiracy... so many in both direction that one may start to feel confused about it all.
Facebook, whatsapp and many other medias are taking some steps to avoid the spread of fakes.. but is it enough?
As we are waking up to what is another extension of this crazy period, on a saturday of what it would have otherwise been a holiday weekend, and we realise that, frankly, politicians have no idea how to 'slowly' get us back to normality I decided to try and see this situation in a different light.
We have plenty of bad news on the radio, plenty of alarmism and plenty of fakes..
So let's steer clear of the above and look, instead, at how this time can be used wisely
Yesterday was my birthday.. I turned the curve and now in a new decade (In lockdown, not ideal,, but hey, it could have been worse so I am not going to complain!)
In honour of this, I decided to have a lighter post (also a good distraction from the current situation) and dedicate this post to all of you readers going to something similar and to birthday celebrations in general.
