The year 2020 is behind us. Most of the year was about COVID-19, lockdown, regu-lations, economic downturn and social upheaval. My deepest sympathy to all those who lost loved ones to the virus.
Now the new year has arrived. We prayed and hoped that the tribulations of 2020 would be behind us. It turns out that the second wave of the pandemic is upon us. It is worse than the first. At the time of writing, 1 004 413 of our citizens contracted the disease, 132 804 are active cases and 26 735 passed away.
I ask that you keep safe.
