“This is the time for government to provide sophisticated equipment in our hospitals. If this is done, the rich and the political office holders would not engage in medical tourism as being done today.
“The trend is partly responsible for capital flight. But, if our hospitals are well equipped with sophisticated equipment, the people would no longer be attracted to travelling overseas for medical care. As such, in situations such as this, the country would not be badly hit.

God doesn’t want anybody to perish, so COVID 19 will fizzle away the same way it came. It is only prayer that can solve this problem because science cannot explain so many things about it.
