Options in life

There are always options in our life. But, sometimes the options are limited. We have TWO options in battling the COVID 19 pandemic. The options are

  1. Fight the COVID 19 until we win, OR
  2. Stabilise our economy

If we choose the first choice, then we have to act accordingly. Take all precautionary measures to ensure the COVID 19 virus is totally eliminated.

The question now is, can we choose the second option? Ironically, the first option is needed before we can get the second one. Therefore, WE DON’T HAVE ANY CHOICE.

Please combat the COVID 19 before dreaming to stabilise our economy. We can do one at a time.
