After almost a year of restrictions due to “COVID,” the killer virus with a 99.8% survival rate, it would be nice if some common sense would return to the world. In the last few weeks, the people of planet Earth have been told to double mask, as if the single-ply ones were actually working to “stop the spread.” We’re also told to continue to “socially distance” as if being closer together mixes the GPS signals in our phones.
It’s most depressing.
Now a story comes from Canada that is in all ways possible sad. An elderly gentleman with Alzheimer’s Disease, and who cannot really communicate with family in any way other than touch, has been denied that to an extent by the hospital staff where is currently located in New Brunswick. He was moved over the holidays.
“All of a sudden we couldn’t hold his hand. We had to sit in the chair with an X marked on the floor that was six feet away and we were kind of like, ‘Wow, you know, this is really different.'”
“Most of the nurses in that unit were fantastic and very understanding, but there was a couple that was very into just … following the rules,” she said.
“They’ve been married for 60 years. It’s very hard for my mother not to hold his hand, not to go up close to him, to touch him — especially since that’s our only form of communication with him.”
When the nurse asked her mother to return to her chair, two meters away, she did but Crevatin said two security guards were still called and they escorted her mother out of the hospital.
“She’s crying her eyes out because this is really embarrassing for her. And she feels like she’s done something wrong, that she’s a criminal.”
Human contact is one of the very least of actions needed to fend off depression in the best of times let alone the gulag conditions which have descended on the world with this “pandemic” where death causes have been revised by the millions to reflect a MUCH lower death rate.
May the world return to sense sometime soon. There is no excuse for this.
