One thing is for certain, I’m getting more and more grumpy and bad-tempered as I read more and more about the lockdown, missed chances at preventing the spread of Covid, the uselessness of those who are supposed to be protecting the country (not profiting from it), and the endless doomscrolling I find myself caught up in.
