As the global population engages in a painful, agonizing retreat into their homes to confront a threat unlike any the world has seen, the initial signs of nature’s response hold out hope for the reset button to be activated to restore a sense of equilibrium between humans and the environment.

While most lament the huge, yet unknown socio-economic fallout from this invasion by a microscopic organism, there is an opportunity for the world to take stock of our state of existence; the level to which we have evolved as a species, yet at the same time how vulnerable we are.

THE EDITOR: Permit me to change the discourse from the pandemic crisis in order to highlight an unsanitary situation in Princes Town that if left unchecked can lead to the spread of diseases just as serious as the covid19 virus.

I wish to highlight two places of concern. Firstly, the M1 Ring road starting from Harry’s Gas Station (now under renovation) in Craignish Village and ending at the WASA treatment plant.

THE EDITOR: I cannot possibly condone security guards laying hands on members of the media. What I do not understand is the necessity to record covid19 patients/friends/relatives/ at any of the hospitals.

None of the media appeared to be wearing gloves or masks. Going back to the office after consorting in an area inhabited by possibly infected persons, is not the best of ideas. In order to do any close recording would entail being allowed to actually enter a restricted area and getting under the feet of busy medical personnel.

THE EDITOR: The covid19 crisis has confirmed what we knew all along but probably didn’t care to admit: our health care workers are worth their weight in gold.

It is safe to assume that TT’S doctors and nurses are undervalued and taken for granted. We are pumping money into the wrong state identities. Dr Rowley, please pay our health care workers what they most definitely deserve.

Bu doing so, many who go abroad seeking better working conditions and pay would consider returning to TT. Health care workers do so much more than they get credit for.

IF THERE was ever a time for parents in dispute to put their pride aside and work together in the interest of their children's welfare, it's now, says president of the Single Fathers' Association of TT, Rhondell Feeles.

It may even mean both parents not fully complying with court orders, at least temporarily, Feeles suggested, in a recent address to the association's membership.
