    I expect this uptick in new cases to continue for the next 2-3 weeks. Look at what is happening here some states in the USA like Florida, Texas, Arizona and California. The pandemic has been raging in these states in particular because people start gathering at beaches, clubs, places of worships and parties ignoring the mitigating protocols laid out by experts. Then they have an onslaught by the deadly virus. The same can be said in the old country. The employed youth there was incited and told to go into the streets without observing the mitigating protocols by the Jihadi Janes and Johns among us and personal fiefdom dreamers over there. That was what the specter virus was looking for. Every one of those killers and destroyers of properties brought home the virus and then you have the same onslaught. These instigators should be held accountable for this uptick. The very capable Minister of Health had it under control up until the mayhem by the savage terrorists.
