WORLD MUST TAKE NOTICE OF THE ENSUING CRISIS

Afghan Covid-19 patients are picking up the opium habit to pander to the coronavirus vice, liking and getting addicted to opium’s painkilling prowess; many believing that Covid-19 isn’t ‘real’ but a manifestation of God’s anger and distaste against man's cupidity for waste.

Guardian editorials are often ponderous affairs bordering on the pious but a commentary on the ending of lockdown at the beginning of July suddenly opined that “Revolutions are not inevitable” and went on to note that sharp jolts to the system often saw “normality” return later.
SUPPLY SYSTEM INEFFICIENCIES ARE ALSO CONTRIBUTING

Food availability was the top concern of 21 per cent of Cubans responding to a recent opinion survey, reflecting the recurrent food shortages on the island promoted by the U.S. economic blockade and the shortcomings of the domestic food supply system. In 1960, the idea of a blockade was appealing to the U.S. State Department because it would cause deprivation and suffering. Those intentions resurfaced in 1992 with the so-called Cuban Democracy Act, which, still in force, restricts foreign partners of U.S. companies from exporting goods to Cuba. It covers exports of food and agricultural supplies.
