All of us will remember 2020 as an annus horribilis that struck the planet in a format not seen before.
As there is still no space for much spirituality during the holiday break, light at the end of the tunnel emerges as various vaccines to halt the spread of COVID-19 become available.
It was a great moment and a good example for other political leaders as this week US vice president Mike Pence received the corona virus vaccine live on TV and disclosed before a live audience “I didn’t feel a thing”
I believe, the world needs more politicians like Pence.
President-elect Joe Biden and his wife Jill will receive the vaccine on Monday.
We should not forget the great job President Trump did by arranging a military like operation to get a vaccine at warp speed.
Donald Trump who contracted coronavirus a couple of months ago completely recovered after a short hospital treatment. As many other ex- corona patients, the president carries antibodies that makes vaccination less urgent. However, he said he looked forward to get the jab “at the appropriate time”.
Since a substantial number of people have doubts about the efficacy and safety of the corona vaccines it would be great as political leaders in other countries do the same as the American leaders.
Let’s hope that more officials show their trust and courage. Boris Johnson, Angela Merkel do they have the guts to get the vaccine in front of TV cameras?
It’ll help to end the conspiracy theorist stories undermining the target level required for successful vaccination.
The sooner as a majority of the world population gets the vaccine, the earlier things might return to normal.
To all of you a prosperous “back to normal” 2021.
