What has been said about coronavirus in the media is chilling. It is particularly unsettling because human beings think they have control of their destiny.
The sense of hopelessness is forcing many to ask many questions. Do we really know what causes it? Was it predestined to happen after 100 years (the 1919 pandemic decimated 50 million people)?
The worry is how the health facilities will react to the demand for testing in the event of an outbreak. Many hospitals are known to take advantage of the situation especially the private ones to fleece people.
Government must act proactively to rein in those who may take advantage of a desperate situation.
