Re: More active hurricane season predicted
Yes this is a problem, one I have been foreseeing for a while.
Imagine you are the PM of one of these islands. You have shut down and “beaten” the virus. Cheers all around, good job. Now what?
The PM is painted into a corner. If he opens in any commercially viable way the virus will return. If the virus returns the people will ask “If the virus was inevitable why did we lock down?”
If he does not commercially open the tax base disappears.
The worst case is maybe the most likely, a open, close, open, close ..... scenario.
I’m not liking the odds. This will hurt.
