“Being infected with COVID-19 is a misfortune but no SHAME. For goodness sakes, ANYONE can be unlucky. But CONTROL requires complete transparency and vigilance. That is why all the famous people (in the USA) are openly sharing their diagnosis.”
That bit is a response to my post on fb that our authorities are worried about the stigma surrounding COVID-19, but it isn’t practical in the fight against this disease. I also applauded American heroes who are making their diagnosis known. I think some people in authority are thinking about the stigma attached to the coronavirus, and for that reason they have chosen to conceal the identities of the three cases we have, but another concern they have is the safety of persons who are infected. I don’t see why providing the necessary protection would be difficult. For goodness’ sake, such security is ABC to arrange.
It is wise for us to act, live, as though we are infected with the virus. The implications are serious if the health personnel who do the mapping aren’t 100% accurate. People do have memory lapses. The safety net would be wider and it would have less holes if we were transparent.
