Ministry’s indecision expansive and detrimental

/
As days draw nearer to reopening the schools after a very long shutdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Ministry of Education looks the more confused and ill-prepared.

Dealing with the fiery issue

/
Residents of Samdrupjongkhar woke up to the news of yet another house lost to a fire incident.  Luckily, there were no casualties this time. 

Better option is going tough

/
Lockdown paints a dark picture in our minds. Some even liken it to a nuclear meltdown, and justly so.  Covid-19 has been an unrelenting virus that can affect us all, irrespective of age and status and place.

Sharing the burden

/
With vaccination seen as the only solution to put an end to the Covid-19 pandemic, the focus is now on securing the Coronavirus vaccine.

Timely information

/
This winter, it is not the water pipes blocked by ice that are leaking. Important information during pandemic times when people are glued to the television, the only source of first-hand information, are leaking too.

As cases increase further lockdown is best

/
Bhutan’s second lockdown experience has been by far better than the last. What is evident is that the nation’s preparedness has improved, say, by leaps and bounds.

Growing our own food

/
Not long ago, Bhutanese would have no issues with shortage of fresh vegetables. They knew the harsh winter is no season for green vegetables.

The year gone by

/
It was a long year. A year that caught us and many by surprise, a year many are feeling glad it is over.  Yes, 2020 is finally over.

Lockdown and lessons

/
Empirical data has no space in our case. This is understandable, but not forgivable. There is a need for a more logical approach to take essential items to the doorsteps of those in dire needs.

Fighting the shadow pandemic and beyond  

/
The Covid-19 pandemic has hit Bhutan hard where it hurts the most. The two lockdowns have crippled the private sector, disrupting planned development activities and the education system. 

Not missing our priority

/
A  50-year-old woman died of terminal illness at the national referral hospital last week. She had tested positive for Covid-19 and was declared recovered.  

Keeping ourselves safe

/
We are only now more concerned and careful. The Covid-19 positive cases are shooting up dramatically. The prevailing picture is of a nation now forced to shy away from the horrors of its own nakedness. That’s our kneejerk reaction. But, really, the situation isn’t all that bad.

All in the fight together

/
We knew it was coming. We knew it was a matter of when, not if. And now, we are fighting it.  Covid-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus, is in our community. Daily cases are on the rise.
