As the world once again sees a spike in Coronavirus cases in some parts, Hollywood actor Kumail Nanjiani has shared his feelings over the surge and how the last eight months have been hard, frightening, and difficult for him. Taking it to social media, the Big Sick actor wrote that Covid-19 impact could have been reduced had there been efforts on the government’s part.
“This was all preventable. I look at the Covid cases & deaths in other countries & it feels like they’re in another world. Are they dealing with the same disease we are? I guess that’s the difference. They’re dealing with it. We’re not,” said Kumail.
“Wearing masks is a sign of weakness. Protecting your friends, family, neighbors are a sign of weakness. Getting your heart broken every day by rising cases is a sign of weakness. Worrying that the next text will contain unthinkable news is a sign of weakness.
Sleepless nights because what will happen if the person laying next to you in bed gets sick is a sign of weakness. Science is a sign of weakness. We could have done so much more to prevent all these losses,” he added as he revealed that his wife belongs to the high-risk group hence his family is in quarantine for the last eight months.
“I’m sorry. I’m generally a very optimistic person & have fought to keep positive these last few months. But today is hard. We are heading into a massive Covid spike & the people who are supposed to protect us are doing nothing & blaming us for being concerned,” he wrote.
