தேர்தல் வைத்ததால் தான் தமிழகத்தில் கொரோனா தீவிரமாக பரவியது என்பது முற்றிலும் தவறான கருத்து.கொரோனா தொற்றின் இன்குஃபேஷன் காலம் 2-15 நாட்கள் என்பது உண்மையெனில்,ஏப்ரல் 2021ன் கடைசி வாரம் நிறைய பேர் இப்போது நிற்பது போல் மருத்துவமனை முன் ஆம்புலன்ஸில் காத்துக்கொண்டு இருந்திருப்பார்கள்.
ஆனால் அப்படி நடக்கவில்லை.ஊரடங்கு மே 10 அன்று தான் வந்தது. தேர்தல் முடிந்த பின் தொடர்ந்த தளர்வுகள்,ஊரடங்கு அமலுக்கு வந்த பின்னும் மக்கள் சுற்றிக்கொண்டு இருந்தனர்.தனது மரபமைப்பை மாற்றிய கொரோனா,சுயக்கட்டுப்பாடு இல்லாத மக்கள் தான் இந்த கோர தாக்குதலுக்கு காரணம்.
இருசக்கர வாகனங்கள் தான் ஊரடங்கு நீர்த்து போக காரணம்.போன வருடம் கொரோனா பாதிக்கப்பட்ட நபர் வீட்டில் இருந்தால் அவரை பிடித்துக்கொண்டு போய்விடுவார்கள்.ஆனால் இப்போது வீட்டிலேயே இருந்து தானும் செத்து,தன் குடும்பத்தினரையும் கைலாசம் கூட்டிச் சென்று கொண்டுள்ளனர்.
