Jagdeo is wrong

Dear Editor,
I read Bharat Jagdeo emphatically stated that there is no evidence that lockdowns reduce the spread of Covid. And surely, I would have rather not be the person to burst his dopey damfool denial bubble, but I guess someone has to do it.

For the Champion of the Earth clearly has that dark matter accumulating in the vacuous cavity between his ears. Indeed, how else can one explain an economist, trained at the Russian University uttering such brainless nonsense. In fact, tempted am I to place this on the Quintet of Questionables.

But recognising infinitesimal knowledge gap, wisdom I will share, for which it is mandatory that I have the undivided attention of Jagdeo.

Firstly, Covid is not a benign self-limiting viral diarrhoeal illness. Covid left millions, dead.


Secondly, If BJ is overcome with the uncertainty on the benefits of lockdown, then he should surely look at Guyana. For 35, 66 and 90 are numbers that would have me not only locking down my doors, hiding from the virus, muchless a country.

And any exploration outdoors would have me face mask covered to church praying that PPP buy reputable vaccines not forgetting to keep my social distance.

Likewise, controlling the virus is multidimensional. To argue that lockdowns can’t control the virus would be foolhardy but true if that’s  only public health modality being used. For multiple such measures must be applied to address this Covid.

Finally, I rather not waste your time, so to your attention I bring that better off you are, not wasting time adding me to your infamous black book. For I’m already there. Page 127. Volume 3.

At Independence Day, we understood that the road to genuine freedom, that is, freedom from the excesses and humiliation of the imperial powers was yet to be gained. Earlier, I was part of a group that took part in lectures […]
