I'm quite tired of the whacking of our Covid-19 war effort in social media.
That's because I don't feel that it's that bad.
Yes, things are quite grim at the moment, but I believe we are not really fighting the pandemic that badly.
War is grim, after all, and we are bound to suffer losses.
However, I think we could turn the tide soon if we hang on, at least until our vaccination effort, which is now picking up speed has reached its objectives.
That should be within just the next few months.
You may not like the government or leaders, who are leading the war effort for whatever reasons, but I hope you all can still support our frontliners who are putting their heart and soul into the fight and their lives on the line.
Give them moral support, at least, by not being too negative about the Covid war.
I have to admit that my only real experience observing our frontliners since confining myself mostly at home since the lockdown was when I went to the vaccination centre at UCSI University in Cheras for my jabs.
I like what I saw as the frontliners there are really doing a good job.
They are quite a bit like DAP election workers. Mostly Chinese youth volunteers (probably students of the university) who are very dedicated and efficient.
The medical staff were also very professional.
The Indian nurse who administered my second dose was courteous as she went through the routine of showing me the right amount of vaccine before the jab and then showing me the empty syringe after that. She even asked me to say Bismillah (In the name of Allah) before the procedure.
They all gave me a good impression of our Covid-19 war effort.
Thank you vaccination team at UCSI.
A good friend of mine also reported a similar experience at another vaccination centre in this Instagram post of her,

Really guys, we do need to be more positive, count our blessings and thank those who are doing their best for us, even during this difficult time.
