New Eyes Of Hindsight

By Sarath de Alwis

Epidemiology is like a bikini: what is revealed is interesting; what is concealed is crucial. ~ Peter Duisburg – Molecular Biologist, Berkley

On 2nd March 2020 the President dissolved parliament. Should he have done it?  The answer is plain, effortless. There was no reason for him not to do it. He did not see the pandemic coming.

The bird sings not because it has an answer. The bird sings because it has a song.

I did not vote for this president. That said, since a majority decided to pluck lemon, in this season I am reconciled to drink lemonade. In this hour of existential crisis, we must not blur the thin line between solidarity and stupidity.

No epidemiologist, no immunologist, no virologist told us or the President that we should not hold elections in April.

No one knew. No one knew, because we did not have the means of knowing. That is the point of departure of this essay. We do not have an authoritative national watchdog agency to audit disease control, protect environmental health and formulate guidelines of community medicine.

Such an authority with the expertise and recognition to articulate an opinion could have made such a determination. The President would have listened.

The Pandemic tells who we are and where we are. Plagues hold a mirror to the society they afflict.

The Black death epidemic in the fourteenth century laid the ground rules of the modern state. It devised methods of isolation and adopted rules of quarantine.

Societies had to evolve methods and means to halt terrifying disease that struck seemingly healthy people.

Otherwise the ruling elite would have focused only on protecting themselves, their surfs and their slaves. There will always be forensic flunkeys of Wijedasa Rajapakse types to trivialize parliament and our liberty.

The Pandemic crisis has exposed the inadequacy of our public health administration. Our health system should not be the popularity vehicle for Minsters of Health.

We must have a director of public health with a’ weltanschauung’ that will build a new generation of researchers who will build links with  peers beyond our shores.

There is a separate and an evolving discipline of Medical Anthropology that addresses issues of stigmatization and marginalization.

It explores new avenues of understanding the links between technologies of epidemic control and the distribution of mortality and vulnerability in and after pandemics.

We must make greater investment in prevention-based health care.

The coronavirus is on a mission of its own. It is surveying our political landscape. It is testing the tensions of our political systems. History will judge how we respond.

I invite the reader to visit the Government of Sri Lanka website.

The website informs you that it has been last updated 04.28 pm on 7th January 2020 that is a week after China informed  the WHO of the mystery virus.

The epidemiology unit of the Ministry of Health makes its  first situation report on the Corona virus on 28th January 2020.

It imparts the following information.

An outbreak of pneumonia of unknown reason was first reported on 31st December 2019 from Wuhan City in Hubei Province of China.

On 7th Jan 2020, it was diagnosed as “Novel Corona Virus”

As of January 27, 2020, the Novel Coronavirus has been reported from 11 countries with 2798 confirmed cases and 80 deaths.

The incubation period is reported as 2-10 days.

Initially, the disease was reported to be spread from animal to human but now the human to human transmission has been observed

First confirmed case of Coronavirus infected person was reported from Sri Lanka on 27th January 2020. The patient was a Chinese national who came to Sri Lanka as a tourist 2 weeks ago.
Currently, the patient is admitted to the National Institute of Infectious Diseases (NIID). ï So far 5 other suspected individuals are at NIID under surveillance. Out of them, 2 are Sri Lankan.

12 hospitals around the country have been identified as the treatment centers for the suspected persons. (NIID, TH Ragama, DGH Gampaha, DGH Negombo, National Hospital Kandy, TH Karapitiya, TH Anuradhapura, TH Jaffna, TH Kurunegala, PGH Rathnapura, TH Batticoloa, PGH Badulla) 

Returning Sri Lankan students who were in China are advised to stay in their homes with minimal contacts with others for a period of 2 weeks from the day of arrival to Sri Lanka.

In the event of the development of symptoms, inform the area PHI / MOH office and seek treatment at the closest above identified hospitals.

At present there is no official Health Ministry directive to wear face masks by the general public including school children.

In the event of wearing face masks, the colored side should be faced outside.  

It reports the global situation as 2798 confirmed cases with 80 deaths. Local situation one confirmed patient. It lists preventive modalities. 

Avoid close contact with people suffering from flu 

Frequent hand washing 

Avoid contacts with live or dead animal 

Always cover the nose and mouth while coughing or sneezing (with disposable tissue / cloth or cough to the arm pit)

Do not touch mouth / nose / eyes unnecessarily.  

It informs you of steps taken for Surveillance at airport

Thermal scanners are in place 

On arrival “Health Declaration Form”

24 x 7 health desk

Since 28th January the epidemiology unit has issued daily situation reports. Reproducing them serves no purpose in this essay. As Einstein famously advised don’t bother with details you can find in some place. Knowing it is there is adequate knowledge.

Now, we should look up the situation report of the epidemiology unit of the Ministry of Health dated 1st March 2020.

This is what it reports:

An outbreak of pneumonia of unknown reason was first reported on 31st December 2019 from Wuhan City in Hubei Province of China. On 7th Jan 2020, it was diagnosed as “Novel Corona Virus”. On 30th Jan 2020, World Health Organization has declared it as a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC). On 11/02/2020 the WHO has introduced a short form for the diseases as COVID-19.

The incubation period is reported as 2-14 days.

RO  (Basic reproduction number) is estimated as 1.4 to 2.5. (R0= the number of cases one case generates on average over the course of its infectious period, in an otherwise uninfected or not immune.

[ I did not understand this RO stuff. I looked for an explanation. It is the measure scientists use to determine how easily a virus spread. It is known as the “basic reproduction number,” or R0 (pronounced R-nought). This is an estimate of the average number of people who catch the virus from a single infected person] ,

Our State Agency monitoring global disease dynamics refers the curious who bother to look up the website of the European Respiratory Society- www.ersnet.org 29/01/2020. I leave it at that.

The Government websites confirms that as of 1st March,  the virus has been reported from 53 countries. The structure and substance of the website reveals a pivotal truth.

The epidemiology unit of the Ministry of Health functioned as an information clearing house.

It is a far cry from a regulatory and supervisory agency dedicated to the study of global disease dynamics.

The GMOA, the country’s premier trade union of doctors, has stepped in to fill that void.

They stepped in. They subdued the panic.

As the saying goes the GMOA rushed in not because, angels feared to tread on the pandemic. When the Pandemic hit us, there were no angels around.

It is the GMOA that assessed the menacing magnitude of the pandemic with stark brutal probity.

Axiomatically this President is a decisive leader. As I said in the beginning, I did not vote for him. If I am around, I will not vote for what he represents at the next parliamentary elections either.

I don’t idolize him. I respect the office he holds. He is the President.

In times of panic and peril, a decisive leadership is what matters. That said, decisive leadership does not exclude or negate the need to consult and listen to experts.

Truly great leaders listen to a wide range of opinions – not just those at the top or the sycophants hovering near.

The great leader is focused on asking questions rather than trying to provide all the answers himself.

In his novel ‘The Plague”, Albert Camus makes a perspicacious observation.

“A pestilence isn’t a thing made to man’s measure. Therefore, we tell ourselves that pestilence is a mere bogey of the mind, a bad dream that will pass away.”

May be as Camus did, the President would have felt ‘that  it was a bad dream that would pass away.’ Many other leaders of better equipped lands did.

With the novel ‘Plague’ its author attempts to capture the absurdities of life. To infuse his heart and intellect in to the narrative, he creates  a character – Jean Tarrou.

Jean Tarrou is a stranger, a visitor to the ravaged land – the  plague-stricken city of Oran in then French Algeria .

He keeps a diary of events of the plague. He works hard to organize sanitary squads. And then, days before the plague ends, he succumbs to it.

The driven stranger trapped in tragedy, captures the essence of the panic and the totality of the peril that the plague brought.

“Each of us has the plague within him; no one, no one on earth is free from it. And I know, too, that we must keep endless watch on ourselves lest in a careless moment we breathe in somebody’s face and fasten the infection on him. What’s natural is the microbe. All the rest – health, integrity, purity (if you like) – is a product of the human will, of a vigilance that must never falter.”

In lockdown melancholia, I am captivated by Albert Camus. In utter helplessness, I realize, as did Camus, “the bleak sterility of life without illusions.”

This essay written in these bleak times, is dedicated to my daughter presently orphaned by the pandemic in a distant city state. She furiously, feverishly ‘works from home’, so that she has no time to worry. She is too young to contemplate life without illusions. That state of mind is called hope.

      “In times of panic and peril, a decisive leadership is what matters. That said, decisive leadership does not exclude or negate the need to consult and listen to experts”
      Therein lies the rub, Sarath.
      The leadership is decisive, but it doesn’t have the ability to choose experts. GR’s expertise is largely military, and this shows in his appointment of military panjandrum’s to positions of power. But he is stuck with the feudal mentality of this class, which believes in the “glorious” ancient civilization.
      What else would explain the much publicised decision to ask the Ayurvedic Doctors to produce an antivirus? The statement even claimed that in the time of the Sinhala kings, everyone was healthy. Were these Vedas , with their “ancient knowledge” even able to save any of the 80,000 people who died of malaria in 1935/1936 ? It was DDT that finally did it, not koththamalli.
      This country is led at the moment by a class which is outwardly modern but inwardly beholden to obscurantism of the worst kind. They ignore even recent history. What next? A committee of astrologers to decide when to lift the curfew?

        Old codger,

        “This country is led at the moment by a class which is outwardly modern but inwardly beholden to obscurantism of the worst kind. They ignore even recent history. What next? A committee of astrologers to decide when to lift the curfew?“

        This country is led by imbeciles, elected by imbeciles, mean measured IQ 79, who follow Buddha -Agama, that is a distortion of Buddhism and is an insult to the Buddha, and the imbeciles prostrate to the monks, who were recruited as child monks, to get the senior Monk training on their backs, and they chant Pirith in Pslu to contain the Wuhan China virus, COVID-19, and the virus is calling the monks BLUFF and the imbecile monks and those who prostrate to the monks are stumped.

        A long sentence, but it is evidence-based.
        The imbeciles should sue the Chinese who introduced the virus to the locals.

      Sarath De Alwis,
      RE: China Virus and Sinhala Buddhist Racism
      Thanks for your article on the Wuhan-China-19 virus, renamed COVID-19, because in falls in the corona virus group.
      Do Chatura of Ada Dreams, Aluthgamage and others also fall into the Corona virus group of Sri Lanka, called Sinhala-Buddhists?An alternative name for this group locally, based on evidence, is Para-Sinhala Para-“Buddhist”, and they follow Buddha-Agama, like the viral RNA of the coronavirus, that infects imbeciles , with mean IQ 79, and those who prostrate to monks.
      The Muslims should sue these imbeciles, just like China is being sued globally.
      Those imbeciles, in turn, should go after the Chinese for the Wuhan China-19 virus, like many others have done, along with WHO, who were complacent.
      Even then, President Gon Gotabaya and Prime Minister Gon Mahinda, said no problem, while only Sajith Premadasa raised the issue in Parliament.
      Why are the Para-Sinhala Para-“Buddhist” imbeciles accusing the innocent Muslims, who themselves are victims of the China Wuhan virus sling with the others, when it was introduced to Lanka by the Chinese in the first place? Sinhala Buddhist Racism? Ask any Tamil!
      From the grapevines, bulathvines and vettilavines, given below.
      With individuals and groups in the US and the UK initiating legal action against the Chinese Government over the spread of the coronavirus, local groups in Sri Lanka are now preparing to do the same. The National Movement for Consumer Rights Protection said that it has already sought legal advice on the steps to be taken against China both locally and in the international arena. Ranjith Vithanage, Chairman of the National Movement for Consumer Rights Protection told that China must take full responsibility for the spread of the virus in Sri Lanka and other countries.

    Although what you say is somewhat true… It isn’t really the case, by the time GMOA announced country needs immediate lockdown it was already recommended in multiple countries in multiple blogs and media outlets….WHO declared this a pandemic ages before that, and even Sri Lankan medical community warnned dangers of not shutting chinese flights when Wuhan went on lockdown.

    When the first COVID pateint was detected even the person who is portrayed as the dumbest politician of Sri Lanka(Sajith) asked in parliament why adequate action was not taken…

    You seem like a honest person trying to see the betterside of this leadership… But there seems to be nothing good with leaders when they are believing in Superstition… Probably had all times and dates and prayers and pujas done for the April election and therefore ignored this whole situation.

      Luther, you are right.If the so called medical men of GMOA were honest, they should have started to create a rumpus by early or mid January.they were more interested in getting their few members on the electoral list.

      These fellows destroyed the SAITM medical degree otherwise by this time there would have been a further 5 batches of Doctors in this country.I do hope that the President will keep his promise and open three or four more schools of medical education, together with SAITM soon.

      Are you happy Padeniya, your monopoly is saved.

      Luther,

      They follow Para-Sinhala Para-“Buddhism”, a distortion of Buddhism and an insult to the Buddha, and the imbeciles, mean Measured IQ 79, keep prostrating to monks, statues, trees and even a canine tooth in the Temple of the (canine) Tooth, chant pirith, seeking blessings to contain the Wuhan China -19 originated COVID-19 virus.

      Instead the imbeciles should sue the Chinese for damages, like many others are trying to do, instead of accusing the Muslims of the China virus, who are innocent victims along with the others.

      Why are the imbeciles accusing the Muslims when it was introduced initially by the Para-Chinese and the Para -Sinhala Italians, and 87 prevent of the victims are Para Sinhala?

      Para-Sinhala Para- Buddhist Racism.Ask any Tamil.

    You write as if though you are all knowing & a master of everything. Go focus on Sri Lankan.

    You appear to write for the sake of writting as if though you are miserable. Your hidden agenda is that you have an axe to grind against the current rulers, hence to let off the Hyenas who submit comments against them. .
    PLAGUE has held a mirror to the entire World where even Trump’s election plans would get disrupted and he be exposed in a manner his popularity to plunder.
    Your forensic flunkeys seem to be in the 01st world countries to trivialize regimes and our liberty and also The Pandemic crisis has exposed the inadequacy of our public health administration in the first world Countris let alone in SL..
    “We must have a director of public health with a’ weltanschauung’ that will build a new generation of researchers who will build links with peers beyond shores”. However, America & Europe seems to NOT have .
    Whom are you attempting impress Mr. Writer with your pea nut brain when the entire world is under a cloud. Nobody had a crystal ball other than the WRITER.

        Thondamarai,

        Why do you blame the Western policy shortages on Author? He is a left (Socialist).

        The author well recognizes the King, as well as Hitler are decisive decision makers who all sternly decide in any emergency or not, not to consult experts. So, when Virus started to spread, King dismissed Parliament which was in control already for five months, called forth for election in the middle of the Coronavirus Pandemic, refused to fund the recovery operations with parliament approved funding by reconvening parliament. Abundant of decisive decisions! Anyway, how did we come to know that the King is like Hitler, a decisive decision maker? Is that when he decided to abandon his US citizenship and return back with his wife to Lankawe and stand in Lankawe election legally? No! Legal? That is not in his dictionary. He never did that. But it was when he killed 140,000 Tamils & mercilessly uprooted the Colombo Muslims and Upcountry Tamils from their Petti-homes without shelters.

        I am not trying to going for rumor mongering. If heard is wrong that is wrong. It is neither my point “nevertheless there is something believable in that”. But I am trying to consult the Decisive Decision Making King, who refuses listen to consultants, other than the coolies called Maha Viyaths. The best way get rid of Covid-19 is, as it was reported in social medias as happened in China & North Korea, drag out all the Covid-19 guys, shoot them point blank and cremate the bodies.

        A decisive decision maker is a person, when everybody is feeble and panic and opposing, who has seen in his clear mind the light glimpse on mouth of the tunnel and guide his followers out, though that path. You label a man foresighted and decisive based on the result, not on a blind act. Hitler killed millions of Europeans & Jews. Lincoln killed 1/10 of American whites. They both embraced same fate. We make our deceive decision that who manages our endemic emergency, not based Hitler is available.

    This epidemic was brought to the notice of WHO in 2019 beginning. That organization FAILED and LED DOWN the whole world in not keeping a close WATCH and taking timely action. WHY? It won’t remain a “Question” anymore; because “ANSWERS” are emerging. The writer, for some reason (unknown but will be known later), says: ” There was no reason for him not to do it” (dissolution of Parliament) “He( referring to President) did not see the pandemic coming”. Then the writer, very innocently says: “No one knew. No one knew”. Beyond that, I did not care to read. There is a limit to reading, listening to this type of “BS” and very discouraging to note the way the “Journalism” is brought to this low level. There is some “Mystery” to that “TWIST” of “FACTS” by Journalists and Media. That too will be known in days, months and years to come.

        L.A. Buddhadasa: “No one knew. No one knew”. To emphasize twice.? By 2nd March, the whole world knew, except Sri Lanka. No. Sri Lanka knew. If the President was asked, he would have given a better reply like ” I wanted to have a Parliament to handle the impending situation better. But this virus arrived us sooner than expected”. For more information about the “Advent” of this virus go to Google and type “Panel Discussion at California University”. You are sure to learn more about the origins and development of this virus and what more in stock. I respect your name.

    Lets get the facts correct. GMOA is a trade union. They have no right to run our COVID response. We have seen their previous acts. When the Suva Sariya free Ambulance service was to be introduced by MP Harsha De Silva, GMOA went on TV armed with the electric de-fibrilator. They showed the electric shock pads to revive patients and asked the public ” do you want to die of elrectric shock or want to take the nearest 3 wheeler and come to us”. Rest of the world paramedics and ambulances save most of the lives in emergency cases. We see what a blessing the SUVA SARIYA has been to us. GMOA was worried if Indian Doctors would come with Suva Sariya and threaten their monopoly. We remember when APOLLO hospital was opened and the Indian doctors performed extremely professionally, our GMOA type got scared and send all kinds of bad stories about APOLLO. Apollo was basically shut down.
    The GMOA seniors are politicians. At least 4 of them have given nominations under Pohottuwa. They should not be allowed to give any time on TV or give any advise. It should be left to Specialist doctors and Director Health Service,
    We also saw them ating as Economists- Protesting about the Singapore Free Trade Agreement.
    GMOA should focus on the many lapses in their own service. How many of these specialists keep a record of the patients coming to private hospitals for consultatin. How many minutes they use to see a patient. Let the GMOA announce the following: “All specialists should keep a patient record in the Consultations, They should minimally spend 20 minutes per consultation. Limit the consultations per day to 15.

      Well said Sam.

      The GMOA has always been a militant, selfish trade union. I saw the President of the GMOA in a recent TV discussion, patting themselves on the back as to how great they are in controlling the epidemic, but his scornful remarks how European countries treat elderly patients was not only unethical & unprofessional but false as well. There are more premature deaths from unmanaged diabetes & kidney failure in SL than from the virus currently but the GMOA is unconcerned, not to mention the inconvenience caused to poor people due to wildcat strikes in the past by their members.

      Some countries in the region, such as Nepal, has no reported deaths despite not imposing a curfew & SL does not test people in large numbers for the virus unlike in developed countries, therefore, the citizens of SL may be given a distorted idea of how brilliantly the crisis is handled by the authorities. The media does not critically question the authorities, nor fact check statements, therefore, the authorities can get away with the ‘convenient truth’. The govt. until, literally, the last moment before the curfew (which I think was a panic response to misinformed advise by self acclaimed pundits), was planing to go ahead with the elections & party members were organising meetings unaware that gathering of people being the source of the virus spreading.

      My friends in SL are happy that the curfew is working & I am told that no one is left behind with the military providing food, assisted by gramasevakas & local temples, which, in my opinion, is unsustainable & a logistical nightmare. However, I am comforted that despite the apparent militarisation under GR, the country would be in a much worse situation if a dithering joker like Sirisena is running the county.

    Ex Yahapalana UNP Minister Dr Rajitha who was the boss of Lankawe’s s Health Services, was on Colombo Media saying he could have stopped the Corona Virus in 3 days..
    How cool …..

    No wonder their loyal followers did not vote for Nandasena, including Dr Alwis…..

    Is Dr Alwis serious about our Lankawe Virologists doing research on Corvid – 19 ??..
    -.
    Prez Nandasean didn’t have the Money to pay for Dhall and Mackeral for our Dalits to eat, while isolating from the Corona Virus after nearly Five years of Dr Rani’s Yahapalanaya .

    God bless the Good Chinese People who stepped up to help our poor inhabitants….

    I think Dr Alwis and the other High Flyer Socialites in the TI, AI and the other Human and Political Rights Organizations should submit a Petition , this time demanding that Dr Rajitha be brought back as the Health Minister .
    Instead of publishing those petitions to help the UNP ex Minister Mr Rauf Hakeem;s demands to take the CORVID-19 ridden Corpses for their traditional Burials in open Caskets in our Villages where the population density is the highest in cramped un hygienic environments.

    That will also save us giving our valuable STF and Police resources to those 130 odd Politikkas who want to come back to Kotte , including the ones who are desperate to get that extra 6 months service which will give them the Life long Pension by the PAYE Tax Payers..

      Sumanayo,

      “That will also save us giving our valuable STF and Police resources to those 130 odd Politikkas who want to come back to Kotte , including the ones who are desperate to get that extra 6 months service which will give them the Life long Pension by the PAYE Tax Payers..”

      “our valuable STF and Police resources “
      Do you think they are the only valuable people doing their job at this moment?. According to the ‘Jarapassa’ plan, they are paving the way for a dictatorial regime in the future. You will be just another ‘condom’ in their toilet very soon’.
      I will be the happiest person in ‘Sorry Lanka’ if the wages of all politicians and their pensions and wages were stopped including the ‘ex-politikkas.’
      Why don’t you talk about the payment of Rs.25,000.00 to the pensioners who applied online in Feb.2020 with immediate effect, while the poor citizens are deprived of their ‘Samurdhi payment & basic needs?. Is this the reason for appointing Ex ‘Gothaya’s’ military personnel to higher positions? Are you afraid to talk about them or you are just another as-h–e????.

    Professori:

    Nice one and let me comfort you.
    1) On 2nd March 2020 the President dissolved parliament. Should he have done it? The answer is plain, effortless.
    *** The fault for this lies with RW because he resigned in haste. allowing the Lovely President to appoint the heir apparent to the position . The reason why he called the election was all about timing to get the 2/3rds majority before the Pandemic scuppered his chances through Collateral Damage to the Economy and that is why the Cover Up. We know China is lying and so was South Korea where 51 who SC claimed recovered have now tested positive. Trump has threatened to withdraw help to WHO for siding with China.
    2) There was no reason for him not to do it. He did not see the pandemic coming.
    *** No one did and I have answered above
    3) I did not vote for this president. That said, since a majority decided to pluck lemon, in this season I am reconciled to drink lemonade. In this hour of existential crisis, we must not blur the thin line between solidarity and stupidity.
    *** Why you could have Pino Kolada. Love is blind . No need to apologise time and time again.
    4) No epidemiologist, no immunologist, no virologist told us or the President that we should not hold elections in April.
    No one knew. No one knew, because we did not have the means of knowing.
    *** They are all in a Choir and are singing to the tune.
    5) The bird sings not because it has an answer. The bird sings because it has a song.
    *** Not Quite they sing for a reason . This is Amazing and a Professori should have known this
    Why Do Birds Sing in the Morning? . … Birds can sing at any time of day, but during the dawn chorus their songs are often louder, livelier, and more frequent. It’s mostly made up of male birds, attempting to attract mates and warn other males away from their territories.
    Gotha is trying to attract Pennies ( in short supply) from Heaven.
