I read a report this morning stating that Indonesia will reopen for business as usual in early June, having determined that the best route is to adopt the herd immunity philosophy for dealing with Covid.

They may be right. The fact is that this still developing country possesses nothing like the wherewithal to address the virus as many of the more wealthy, organized, developed countries have done. There is no such a thing as sending relief checks to people, no such a thing for most folks as working from home, no such a thing as an able, smoothly running healthcare system, no such a thing as widespread public cooperation. There is no choice, really, other than the que sera sera philosophy. Whatever will be will be.

So here we go, as it would appear. Wish us luck.
