How to kill your economy over a virus, lesson 101

3 weeks in a row of changing the rules

Imagine a country where they change the "measures against the corona virus" every week. You would think that is somewhere in a third world country with a dictator as a leader, right? Think again, it is a country with a history of being one of the wealthiest in the past, with an elected government (actually 5 governments, but that's a different story), called Belgium. And I happen to live in it. It is outrageous what is happening over here. Complete mismanagement has lead to a situation where our government is going to change the rules for the citizens for the third week in a row. Yep, tomorrow, once again they will tighten the rope, and make the economy bleed even more. I am ashamed of my country, really. First of all, I don't believe in lockdowns, I think they are counterproductive, but that is even not important here. What point is there in taking measures, if they don't wait for the results???

Once again businesses will have to shut down because of the measures

Complete mismanagement

So, tomorrow morning, once again, the so called experts will come together with the government and decide about what we are allowed to do in our private life, once again. That, after promising to the entire country in the spring, that once 70 % of the people was vaccinated, our freedom would return... Well, that was a blunt lie. Almost 90 % of the population is vaccinated, and hé, here we are on the brink of a lockdown (light) again. But the most astonishing part is, that they change the rules 3 times in 15 days, and then they are baffled that people don't follow those rules. Well, who would? And who even knows what they are? It is astonishing how bad this crisis has been run by a country of the Western world. One would think that after 21 months of pure misery, they would have upscaled the medical care in the country? Nah, not really, it is even downscaled a little bit. If I think about it, I find it a crime what is happening here, but you know how it is, the bigger the crime, the easier you get away with it. One thing is for sure, our country and especially the companies will be the victim of this, thousands will go bankrupt eventually, and hundreds of thousands will become unemployed in the long run. But hé, we have more important stuff to do, we have a virus to manage, right!?

Luckily, the resistance is rising, and more and more people will disobey, like me, but we have a long way to go, before common sense will return.

A very concerned Belgian citizen has spoken!

Sincerely,

It's especially frustrating because the measures are provably ineffective, as one can easily figure out by looking at the Nations and states that are carrying on with life as normal.

I live in the US, but in a state which has added many mandates and ineffective policy, so I feel for you.

The measures are proven to be counterproductive, and finally a lot of people are realising that. But it sucks to be in a police state…

Belgium is just one step behind here in the UK in the level of stupidity on changing rules!

Life has to get back to normal and the vaccine was one route to that. In fact, there is no other route. Eventually getting back to normal means letting the virus spread. The alternative is continued ineffective lockdowns and mask-wearing.

But at least in the UK you don’t have to show a QR code that contains your vaccination status to enter a pub or restaurant…

That is true. The government have shied away from doing that as it goes against our views on freedom. They could still do it in future.

It is worse in Germany where you can't even go to a shop now without a pass!

First of all it's the fault of the people for being fooled that vaccination is going to solve anything and second ones to blame are business owners who accepted all this. If the majority would defy instead of comply this bullshit would be over for long. People are still afraid of fines and taking the state to court.
