As Christmas approaches, we are no further down the deadlock. Then we were just after the elections. This situation is unsatisfactory, to say the least. Especially when we have an escalating pandemic. Threatening peoples lives with an equally ever-increasing death rate. Healthcare workers are exhausted and hospitals are stretched. A vaccine program which requires proper funding is also at stake. With a new round of help packages on the sidelines. Vaccine approvals have not passed to date. Concern is mounting the vaccine’s approval is not the only issue. The number of vaccines available is uncertain. For the sake of the population and the country’s economy. Unison on policy must be the most important issue to address. Without it we are a rudderless ship cast adrift in a stormy sea.
