A Breath of Fresh Air - Is the Pandemic a Miracle?

Derek Rydall
Personally, I believe in miracles, but I don't believe this is one.

As a direct result of covid-19, the global pandemic, people are suffering.  People are dying.  People are losing their loved ones.  Healthcare workers are scared to go to work.  Some of us are struggling to get hold of the basic things we need.  And the economic consequences are yet to be seen.

Having said all that, there are some positive aspects as well.

The global lockdown in the wake of the covid-19 pandemic is having many positive, beneficial consequences.  Street crime, burglary and other crimes are down (although cyber crime and internet fraud are on the increase).  The air quality has improved, and the impact on the environment means that fewer are animals dying.  Go here for an article by Derek Rydall about the positive aspects of the coronavirus.  It's useful to have a fresh perspective. 

In the midst of all the disruption, confusion, fear, anxiety and despair, we need to smile and laugh more than ever. Go here for 17 of the funniest coronavirus tweets
