It can be said, without fear of making a mistake, that the health crisis caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus has changed the world in which we lived forever.
This microscopic enemy has changed our way of working, having fun, and relating to each other because it was necessary to try to stop it and get it to stop multiplying.
There have been countries that have managed this crisis better, a clear example is in the numbers of infected and deceased in countries that are very close to the origin of the virus, the People’s Republic of China.
A few days ago Miguel Sebastián published in El Español a table with the data of the people infected during September, October and November in different countries, regions, continents and also the global figure for planet Earth.
In Europe, Germany with more than 80 million inhabitants and a number of infected 824,971 (a little less than 1%), Italy with more than 60 million inhabitants has added 1,332,354 infected (a little more than 2% ) and in Spain with more than 47 million inhabitants, the infected amount to 1,166,989 (a little more than 2.4%) of the population.
However, in Asia there are very different figures, in Vietnam, with a population that exceeds 95 million people, the number of infected in these three months is 302, in Japan with more than 126 million inhabitants 81,895 have been infected and in South Korea, which has a population of over 51 million people, 14,254 have been infected.
Personally, I do not believe in miracles and if in doing things well, that is why I cannot help but think that our politicians, the politicians of Western countries, are much more concerned with their political survival than with managing this crisis well.
This crisis that despite the announcements about the advances in the different vaccines, we do not know when or how it will end, causes collateral damage derived from this disastrous health management that our politicians are doing.
Collateral effects that are already damaging today, in a very serious way, the economies of many people who have been suffering from the manifest lack of interest of public officials for the survival and economy of citizens.
A few days ago I read a couple of articles in the Gijon newspaper El Comercio, in one of them a mother said that her husband will not receive the ERTE this month and they face eviction if they do not pay the rent, in the other article a businesswoman He explained that after paying the corresponding taxes, all the money he had left was € 40.00.
I cannot help but be surprised by the lightness with which this crisis has been treated from the political power, manipulating data from both sides to show that they do it well, but my surprise is even greater when I see a large number of citizens behaving like if nothing happened.
But if it happens and if things do not change much, much more will happen because we have a very complicated road ahead of us, a road in which many economies will hit rock bottom.
Personal and business economies that will not be able to withstand this health, economic and social crisis that is already affecting the mental health of many Spaniards.
