Description

Covid-19 kry die wêreld in sy mag en groei tot ’n orkaan van ongekende omvang. Almal is saam in die storm, maar in verskillende bootjies. Sommige is eensaam en alleen in ’n bootjie; in ander bote is daar te veel mense vir die beperkte ruimte. Mense raak benoud. Benoude katte maak benoude spronge. Wanneer die lewe jou uit die bekende grond van ’n bepaalde bestaan ruk en sonder waarskuwing op ’n onbekende plek laat val, kan jy uithaak. Dan begin dinge komieklik raak. ’n Bevolking in huisarres – gevangenes sonder ’n misdaadrekord. Terwyl die misdadigers op vrye voet is – besig om die septer te swaai en die land te verwoes. Verskroeide aarde onder kwarantyn. Honger mense se kos word gesteel deur dié wie se spense oorvol is. Mense wat absurde wette oortree, kry ’n misdaadrekord. Vir party word dit pikker as pikswart; ander strek hulle hande uit om elke nuwe dag te omhels. Hierdie boek kyk na dit wat as buite-normaal, skokkend, tragies, ongemaklik of komies ervaar is in die ses maande vanaf vlak vyf tot vlak een van die pandemie.

Never in the history of ever the world has faced a catastrophe of this size. Covid-19 extended to a hurricane of unprecedented magnitude – within an ocean the size of the world. All together we are braving the storm, but find ourselves in different boats. Some sail in solitude, while others do not find enough breathing space amongst too many people. Life is snatched from the familiar way of existence and dropped without warning into a strange place. Then it may happen that you lose your head and start doing funny things. A population under house arrest – prisoners without a criminal record. While criminals are at large – wielding the scepter and destroying the country. Hungry people’s food is stolen by those whose pantries have barely space for more. People who broke absurd laws now have a criminal record. For some, it becomes darker than pitch black; others stretch out their hands to embrace each new day. This book helps the reader to look back at things which was perceived as out-of-normal, shocking, tragic, uncomfortable or comical during the six months from level five to level one of the pandemic.
