    Dear CM, it is uncontrollable because you slept when you should have acted pro-actively. Please do not shed crocodile tears now – instead buck up and get things back under control.

    You have to blame the public for ignoring safety precautions. Hanging their mask over the neck instead of covering mouth and nose and flocking like sheep instead of keeping safe distance.
