Asymptomatic

On 29 February 2020, I got my 1st corona contamination after a lunch with my mother (now 86) and my son (now 23). Suddenly, a heavy fatigue came over me, which lasted for 2-3 weeks. Early March 2021, I got my 2nd contamination: again a sudden fatigue, less heavy than the first, and "only" for 1-2 weeks. A February 2021 Dutch newspaper article confirmed my...

The macro and micro side of the corona coin

The macro and micro side of the corona coin

The coronavirus pandemic is causing a very different macro and micro perspective. Both sides of the corona coin (seem to) argue that the other side is giving a false picture. As often, both perspectives are true and/or valid. Let me explain that apparent contradiction. The micro side of the coin is about empathy (healthcare for the sick) and the macro side...
