Since April 22, Word New has been following covid-19’s behavior in the world and to this end has published texts by writers, journalists and scientists residing in Argentina, Australia, the United Kingdom, Spain, Romania, Germany, Norway and Sweden, as well as summaries of data relating to those, and others, regions of the world. (See summary).

This diversity of voices brought us closer to the reality that these people live during this scourge and allowed us to know experiences, opinions, information, from their respective contexts. Voices and data have been a kind of spoken map of those areas of the universe.

For a few days now, some nations have made changes in crisis management, introduced certain openings in their societies, and lifted restrictions, even though the spread of the virus is far from stopped.

The arguments, for and against such conduct, are multiple, according to the positioning of those who issue them. What is clear is that restriction lifts will have consequences, because vaccines remain distant and therapies to treat the sick still fail to lower the mortality rate; on the contrary, when the spreads further across the African continent and the actual data of countries with clumsy – and masked – crisis management comes to light, it can be worse.

May God help us. And to protect the poorest, the most helpless, the most vulnerable.
