The two most powerful nations in the world, the United States and Great Britain have never been in such a crisis since 2nd World-War. 32 crore people in America and 6 crore people in Britain are under house custody today. As a result of the lockdown, communication with the country and abroad has been cut off; trade and business has come to a standstill, and the economic recession is now in both the countries. These two rich superpowers have bowed their heads to this CORONA virus. The invisible virus has really taken away night’s sleep of the two world leaders at Whitehouse or 10 Downing Street.
Worried Donald Trump though showed optimism at the end of each of his press conferences, but failed to demonstrate the same responsibility for the rest of the world. The rotten smell of one body after another in his country, and the picture of the mismanagement of the funeral seemed to show the unknown weakness of the US administration again and again.
The so-called powerful country, the United States is crowded with world’s most talented scientists, with multiple laboratories, yet the traditional American pride is crumpled by the power of an invisible virus. There is no denying the fact that America’s education, knowledge, science, and military might be the super-first to beat any country in the world, yet today that great nation stands almost like a vagrant. Very often US president Tramp is threatening China in anger, also to WHO to withhold money.
Mr. Rick Bright K has been removed from the US Central Vaccine Scheme because of opinion discrepancy with the president. America frequently has been engrossed in the politics of war by word of mouth. The people of America who give importance their lives at the cost of anything in the world, have been found the highest number of deaths due to COVID-19 today. Britain is in the next place, the Prime Minister Mr. Boris Johnson could not give any hope to the people of UK during this uncertain period of Corona. He might have wanted to lead by inventing the COVID-19 vaccine, but yet this is under investigation by their scientist. Instead a mountain of death bodies has been accumulated in his country. The National Health Service (NHS) is struggling day and night to cope with the situation.
Russia has followed the same path as China did before using force and intimidation to stop Corona. Italy, Spain are now getting better to overcome the pandemic of COVID-19; Germany, South Korea, Japan are also better today, but in America and Britain, there is a lot of death day by day. It really wasn’t supposed to happen to these two big nations. In the face of the Corona Crisis, the leaders of the world’s most powerful nations, such as the United States and Britain, have not been able to console the world in any way rather frequently blaming to China. Although the disaster started from China, it should not be forgotten that even the world’s most powerful country is incapable of dealing with it.
In fact, in the age of globalization, the percentage of its effectiveness has almost been questioned. It is teaching every person in the world to think afresh about security and safety. The social inequality behind security has become more and more apparent. Needless to say that the money and powerful weapon is no longer the safest thing to live. The great world leaders are now busy to tidying up their homes leaving the world. It is clear that so far they have been running only in name. In today’s world of crisis, they are only concerned with their own safety.
The CORONA era seems to have turned the tide of political leaders’ reckoning, which is why the discovery of the Corona vaccine has become a major issue for US President Donald Trump, leaving the opposition camp aside. Boris Johnson and Corona, who are in the headlines, failed to give his country the right infrastructure to deal with it. Even the European Union today is unable to hold on to their financial inequality, failing to extend a helping hand to the world. Everyone is busy to defending their borders.
Japan government has already given 20 percent of its GDP to its own countrymen, silently trying to show the light of hope to the world again. German Chancellor Angela Merkel is fighting alone for Germany, so her country has had a lot of success in this Corona War. A small country like Cuba, a neglected country on the map of the world, which is constantly sending thousands of workers to provide healthcare to the world, has sent representatives to 67 countries around the world according to news sources. But the rich countries are now unable to help the world, rather they are counting down the day to cure from corona. COVID-19 seems to have learned to recognize the so-called strong and rich nature of the world; this is probably the right time to choose right and wrong.
