After 16 days of COVID i mixed my father’s ashes into a rose plant and two evergreen trees, sought his blessings, and return my broken heart to the reporting road for @themojostory starting travels through rural India. This will be a personal pilgrimage. Wish us luck and love

Unbelievable that governments see no curbing of freedom in closing borders, in travel apartheid, unscientific restrictions ( like double pcr tests at destination and departure) - but invoke liberalism when asked to mandate vaccines. Unbelievable idiocy.

Mandate vaccines, Manufacture more vaccines. Test and travel. The world cannot afford yet more paralysis. Variants are potentially never ending. The crores of Indians who have not taken their second jab-do that today-. to start.

We must be careful with how we claim #Omicron 'escapes' vaccines- as long as the jab keeps you out of ICU and staves off deaths, the vaccines are still doing their job, even if infections 'breakthrough'- The experts speak on @themojostory

to respond to covid in the same way in 2021 as we did in 2020 pre-vaccine is to have learnt nothing at all

Travel bans are the silliest response to #Omicron . The only smart response with the spectre of never ending variants is to Mandate Vaccines wherever available
