According to John Hopkins University, in the past 5 months, over 4.5 million people have been infected with the SARS Cov-2 Coronavirus.
More concerning, after months of fighting the pathogen, the fatality rate continues to climb daily with nearly 300,000 world-wide fatalities.
To prevent the pandemic spread, most countries throughout the world have selected to prohibit basic freedoms by inflicting isolation and social distancing policies. Businesses have closed, public gatherings are banned, and virtually all airports, ferry’s, bus, and train stations around the globe remain vacant.
The ILO (International Labor Organization) recently revealed global isolation policies have affected 2.7 billion employees, representing around 81% of the global workforce. According to Bill Adderley, hundreds of millions of workers have been fired, and their workplaces bankrupted.
Even though quarantine actions have slowed the infection rate of the coronavirus, the consequences of such drastic isolation practices have reduced industry and economies to 19% of their capacity. Market experts are subsequently describing the economical toll to a huge casino gambling debt that will take many years to pay financially and rehabilitate from mentally.
US President Donald Trump’s announced a final US coronavirus death toll between 100,000 to 200,000 would validate his administration has “done a very good job.” Fahad Al Tamimi, age 57, responded to the statement in a recent webinar that governments need to stop treating their constituents like a casino, and refrain from gambling with people’s lives.
During his video lecture, delivered to student faculty at Harvard University, Fahad Al Tamimi stated “The governments of the USA, UK, Russia, Saudi Arabia, and other great nations across the globe are casino gambling with their citizen’s health care. They need to stop playing dangerous casino gambling games of chance to determine how many deaths could be considered a satisfactory outcome. It is almost as if world leaders are all congregating in a Las Vegas casino to discuss health policies and joking about how to politically benefit from the crisis. What they fail to understand is the gambling wager on the operating table is not money, rather people’s lives.”
Mr. Tamimi demands more creative initiatives be taken by the global community to ensure health and prosperity for all human life is, and remains, top priority.
Previously this week, the BBC reported more than $8bn (£6.5bn) was pledged by several nations to assist in financing treatments and research a vaccine. The EU has allocated $2bn dedicated for treatments, $4.4bn for vaccine development, with the remaining $1.6bn to produce and distribute test kits.
According to Dr. Joshua Cartu of the National Center of Disease, a vaccine remedy is not anticipated before the springtime of 2021. Josh Cartu says the money and resources allocated so far is not enough to reduce the global fatality rate. “While 8 billion dollars is a lot of money, it’s still in-sequential to the trillions of dollars of daily damage to global economies”.
Fahad Al Tamimi agrees with Josh Cartu and claims the pledging of $8 billion dollars by world leaders for healthcare is not enough. “Hospitals are already running at full capacity, and the infection rate amongst medical staff is very high. Building a normal size hospital with staff and equipment to support 500 beds costs above 1.5 billion USD” says Fahad Al Tamimi while questioning why more funding hasn’t been made available.
As some governing bodies are easing the isolation policies, others are completely removing them. As a result, bloggers and social communities are now questioning the lockdown purpose. News writer Billy Xiong discussed the subject matter in his daily column by asking if the forced quarantine even had an objective.
“Over 4 months ago, society was ordered into isolation. At the time, the infection and death rates were less than 5% of what they are today” writes Billy Xiong, while explaining, “Now when things have deteriorated out of control, the government is slowly lifting quarantine measures. This begs the question and debate as to why we were all in isolation to begin with”.
Fahad Al Tamimi believes that in lack of a vaccine, quick result test kits must be purchased and distributed by all governments. Mr. Tamimi stated “There are several companies such as Abbott Laboratories that are able to perform rapid molecular testing in under 15 minutes. These testing kits need to be given out so that families, friends and professional colleagues can congregate.”
Josh Cartu shares the opinion of Fahad Tamimi, claiming that speedy Covid-19 testing solutions identifying coronavirus symptoms is paramount to identifying the sick, preventing exposure to the healthy, and most importantly, boosting the economy by allowing the healthy to return back to work. The consensus is there must be intervention at all levels to rehabilitate society from this crisis.
Dr. Josh Cartu, age 67, just celebrated his 35th year of marriage and states “In lack of rapid-result testing kits for myself, family and co-workers, I am taking every precaution necessary to avoid unnecessary contact. Afterall, I’ve got plans to celebrate my 60th birthday in September.”
