Governor of Jalisco’s Statement re/ Coronavirus. Compare to our President!!!

 

Governor of Jalisco, Ernesto Alfaro Ramirez, just released this statement:

“Today is the day with the most deaths by #COVID19 in the country and also with more infections detected by #RadarJalisco in our state.
In a single day 424 deaths in Mexico and 98 new infections in Jalisco. Nothing else here already add up to 95 human losses to regret since the pandemic started. That’s the reality.
Hopefully it will serve to understand that this is not over yet and that we don’t have to wait for it to happen to ours to react. This is a race of endurance and getting well waged depends on everyone and everyone.
The fight against the pandemic is not a responsibility of the government, but for the social behavior and co-responsibility of the people.
Today marks 15 days of the past bridge (holiday weekend) for May 5th and just nine days since Mothers Day. It’s no coincidence. It is the consequences of those who left home without having to, of those who decided to hold get-togethers and put their most loved ones at risk.
#StayHome. Every one who decides to go out on the street without strictly necessity, you are putting yourself, your loved ones and others at risk. If we do it right, we move forward; if we do it wrong, economic reactivation will be slower and we will have more deaths to regret.”

This is how an educated and empathetic leader speaks. how embarrassing to compare it to POTUS!!!!

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

    I think we should not even try to compare other leaders to our POTUS. I was told the other day in conversation with a friend in Tasmania (almost our antipodes) that the entire planet hopes that POTUS will be voted out in November!

    I’m from the U.K. and Simret is correct. The entire world wants the man out. What is really baffling is a question I ask myself often. “What type of person votes for and supports such an obnoxious man? It’s time for them to put loyalty to a political party to one side and start to think about choosing a leader with empathy and integrity, someone who will put the people first.

    I’m also puzzled why there are only old folk in the running! Oh, bring back Mr Obama!

      I agree with everything you’ve said, Sue. It seems as though every so often a leader comes to power who brings out the dark side in their country. Trump is one of those men. Please, please, may the pendulum swing upwards again.

    And here in the UK, lockdown restrictions are being eased for England, while Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland are still in strict lockdown. I fully expect we will see a similar story in a few weeks of English cases rising again. I live in Wales. I’m not going out except for essentials. I have books and a garden 🙂
