that is perhaps, one reason why i’m volunteering to distribute masks on Monday. Only 100 masks, so if any of you have extra N95s, contact me! I’m part of the movement ‘Project N95 Mask’, an initiative by students. Contact me if you’re interested too!
The government can do no right, it seems.
The Internet is such a confusing and overwhelming platform at the moment (and I recognise the irony of penning this piece). Most are dismayed by the lack of decisive leadership, but I think the government has – finally – recognised the severity of this haze crisis. Many refuse to trust it, but do its job, it will. To contend that the agencies and their employees are lackadaisical, apathetic, or resting pedantically on their laurels would be grossly unfair. If you compare the actions taken by the military and the civil authorities, it boils down to the lack of contingency preparations and experience.
Who could have anticipated the severity of this phenomenon? We say “yes we should have seen this coming”, “we’ve been plagued by the haze since forever”, “the government should have engaged in more diplomatic overtures”, but hindsight’s 20/20.
