A Journey to the COVID Capital of the World


It’s deliciously ironic that I needed to submit a detrimental COVID take a look at consequence as a precondition for touring to the nation that’s #1 within the variety of coronavirus infections and deaths. I religiously wore my modern black masks on flights, a requirement on Japan Airways however not American Airways, in airports, and in different public locations, together with a convention with 6,500 attendees. (Fortunately, the organizer required that everybody “masks up.”)

Miracle of miracles, I wasn’t contaminated throughout the month-long journey. It was apparent that “freedumb” reigns supreme within the land of the free. It was like I missed the breaking information that COVID had been eradicated within the US. I might estimate that about 5% of the folks I noticed had been carrying a masks. My inside monologue recognized them because the good ones. The 95% sans masks – not a lot.

The US adopted in Vietnam’s official footprints by lifting the COVID take a look at requirement on 12 June 2022 for all worldwide airline passengers, no matter citizenship or vaccination standing. Thank God for small mercies.
