COMMENT | Pandemic could be Mother Nature’s way of pruning dead leaves and twigs

COMMENT | In a sense, the Covid-19 pandemic is like Mother Nature’s way of pruning the earth and weeding out what isn’t needed.

I’m sure all of you are expecting me to start talking about politics and pulling comparisons with PKR president Anwar Ibrahim’s latest Twitter post of himself pruning his bamboo plants in the garden.

Well, you’re out of luck. I don’t seem to be in the mood to think about politics this week.

But I’m glad to see that the news media and the rest of Malaysia are already paying attention to it.

It just means that the country is slowly moving on past this pandemic and back to being as normal as before (oh wait, it’s the new normal).

The pandemic caused a huge lockdown all around the world. Life as we know it came to an almost complete stop.
