I wonder

I wonder why it takes so long to develop a vaccine. I feel very misled by all those blockbusters where the heroes draw blood, rush to the lab in a race against time, find the antibodies and VOILA! a potion is conjured up and used to save lives. And all this before the two-hour movie is up.

I wonder.

I wonder if we’re going to need a COVID-19 vaccine to be able to travel again.

I wonder when we will be able to travel again.

I wonder what will happen to SAA.

I wonder if people are ashamed of the things they say on social media.

I wonder if they know how to delete.

I wonder.

I wonder if the taxi industry is embarrassed about ever mentioning the word shutdown or strike.

I wonder what world leaders will be remembered as COVID-19 heroes.

I wonder who will play New York Governor Andrew Cuomo in the movie.

I wonder who will play President Ramaphosa in the movie.

I wonder if Trevor Noah is losing his marbles in isolation.

I wonder if he was always so crude, or if that’s a new thing.

I wonder how on earth President Trump still makes it into my newsfeed.

I wonder if I’m overthinking things.

I wonder if our President realises how well leadership suits him.

I wonder how hard the virus will hit South Africa.

I wonder if people in need will ask for help.

I wonder when Vodacom will make data cheaper.

I wonder what tomorrow will bring.

I wonder if we can ever be prepared enough.

I wonder if it’s okay to clean the house on Good Friday.

I wonder if we will remember the true meaning of Easter this year.

I wonder why I feel so calm.

I wonder.

    I wonder when theyre going to release a breakdown in table form of the comparing the infection, deaths AND recoveries versus all the other diseases. I wonder.
    I wonder why people make a concerted and global effort to turn to God in times of trouble yet forget about Him when things go well.

      That would be interesting to see, especially if there’s also a column that illustrates impact of other highly infectious diseases. I wonder what the comparable ones are? I also wonder what the exact ICU capacity of both our private and public healthcare system is. I wonder when/if the storm will break. You’ve opened a whole new sea of “I wonder’s”.

      And yes, it sure is one of those human tendencies, to do just that. However, I have to say that I personally haven’t come across too many ‘new believers’ amidst this… but then I haven’t really been coming across anyone new lately… Anyway, back to playing solitaire 😉
