Yes, of course, absolutely bloody brilliant. WOW. Who would have thought.
Just 7 deaths — though, of course, even ONE death is too much.
They, especially the government & health professionals deserve much kudos & applause for this superhuman achievement.
Left the developed countries in the dust by quite a FEW orders of magnitude.
Yes, the numbers may not be fully accurate. But, I doubt whether, worst case, it is off by much more than say 1/100th. So, maybe 64,900 cases & 700 deaths. That is still absurdly low.
Until last night, when a cousin living in Sri Lanka, who happens to be a doctor, told me the details, I was NOT aware of the draconian lockdown & curfew.
They shut down all ‘ports’ — inbound & outbound. Not just passengers, goods as well.
It has been FORTRESS SRI LANKA for over a month.
They sure managed to keep the virus in check. BRAVO.
But, but, but … was it worth it?
At WHAT a huge cost?
I am sure that they will study this at Harvard, in years to come, as a Case Study. Was it the right thing to do?
Yes, when they started the lockdown, they, obviously, did not know what the infection & death rates were going to be.
But, the unintended consequences! WOW.
It, of course, has decimated the economy and the economy was already in BAD SHAPE following the tourist slump post the Easter 2019 ‘incident’.
People will DIE because of poverty!
This is sad. This is BAD.
Yes, of course, this being Sri Lanka there is dirty politics involved!
China will gain even more control.
All in all, I do not think this is good.
But, I am NOT an expert and I have no skin in the game.

I have been waiting for the ‘Loony Bin’ BLAME GAME to start. No, no, NOT just Trump. He can’t help it.
I had NOT seen this one coming. Sins of bullfighting?
But, it started it China and they don’t have bullfighting.
I also LOVE the whole ‘Kharmic‘ thing.
So, how does that kick in? Who administers it.
And yes, quite a few of my ‘relatives’ subscribe to such stuff. I am so lucky that I was adopted. SMILE.
U.S. Currently Has A GLUT Of Bacon, Most In 48-Years, Can YOU Folks Up Your GLUTTONY For Bacon. #MAGA With Bacon.
It actually has to do with the ongoing trade war with China and the silly tariffs. The U.S. produced more bacon thinking the Chinese will buy it, BUT they, because of the tariffs, are boycotting the bacon.
Not right. You have to step up and eat MORE bacon. For many of you that should not be a hardship.
I eat a LOT of pig. I eat ham or sausage every day, with nary an exception. I also eat a LOT — and I mean a LOT — of pork. I estimate that I eat at least TWO (2) fully-grown 400-pound porkers a month! Yes, I am a pig eating machine.
But, I am not partial to bacon. Too fatty for my lean tastes. Oh, I eat bacon, but not often and sparingly. Nothing like how I scoff down SLABS of ham, long chains of sausages and oodles of pork.
So, I am relying on YOU to help me.
Eat more bacon for #MAGA.
Do it for Trump. Thank YOU.

They marked it with a huge parade. Some claim the largest military parade — at least in recent times.
I am fortunate enough to watch British news — typically Sky News on my Roku — many nights a week. Last two nights British news has started off showing parts of this parade before cutting off to talk about the protests in Hong Kong. I did not see the parade covered at all on CNN and MSNBC news. So, I wanted to make sure YOU at least heard about it.
Definitely worth watching. Lots of high-tech military innovations.
You can thank me later.
