From thoughts to affirmations: at home and abroad
In COVID-19, many countries reduced their exports of agricultural products due to domestic demand for food. With the Chinese economy affected by COVID-19, China imposes tariffs on goods imported from Australia, converting tariff revenues into Australian revenues. In addition, they can save money by stopping the importation of beef from Australia. Since COVID-19 originated in China, the Chinese government suspects it has obtained defective products from other countries which may cause the disease to spread; this reaction is not uncommon.
Tariffs are a measure of income redistribution in the form of progressive taxes to redistribute income within the country, as regional stability is an essential part of the government’s responsibility. Australia will generate income by selling its products to China or other countries. Countries like India don’t eat beef. Therefore, the only states that can accept beef imports are those that consume it. Australia should focus on finding new export products.
The appreciation of the dollar may offset the loss caused by tariffs by exporting education to wealthy Chinese students who come from China to study in Australia. The government must not allow the spread of prejudice, believing that the Chinese are responsible for COVID-19; if we have contracted a disease we need to work on how to stop the spread. Medicine and public health have progressed only in this way, responding to current challenges by setting new guidelines.
Businesses don’t do business on the basis of emotions.
First they earn money, then they do charity. It is the foundation of life and business. When the foreclosure opens, you will see companies making up for losses by setting higher prices because they need sustained profitability.
But there is another living world.
Mr Ravish Kumar (2020) on his NDTV India show showed that the poor mother had no food and was unable to breastfeed her newborn baby. In a country like India, people walk to their destinations without food. It is essential to examine food policy within the state and nation.
Although many developing countries are still major exporters of agricultural products, every country should be self-sufficient. Australians also grow fruits and vegetables in their garden. Food is an essential element; they are already on the verge of reducing their alcohol consumption because they do not need it. China’s decision not to import Australian wine is due to the fact that it needs resources to meet the basic needs of the people; all countries manage their resources internally. All countries have lost income from tourism because all countries want their people to be safe and not contract the disease.
Lock-ups and income
COVID-19 is reorganizing everything to readjust the economy. During the containment of COVID-19, many people find it beneficial to work from home because it saves them time and costs of travel (gasoline, tickets and parking) and other hassles (preliminary work). When we get a full salary, working from home brings them tremendous benefits. For example, people who can work from home, take online classes, or do administrative tasks will find working from home convenient.
Farming cannot be done at home.
If the supermarket closes, people can starve. So, are farmers essential to us? What about supermarkets? As a result, in education you may not need a lot of teachers as few teachers can provide online learning to millions of students around the world. The university and its conference hall were empty – new arrangements for the new era – and the university’s recruiting process stalled; COVID-19 plagued her.
Winners and losers
The blockade brought huge short-term gains to some people. But those who lost their jobs with good wages became the losers. After foreclosure, the company may increase the price of its products, but due to the lack of affordability, those on marginal income will be under financial pressure. If the blockade lasts longer, how will we overcome poverty and unemployment?
We need to be vaccinated against COVID-19, but it’s your choice.
But giving an option has a hidden meaning. Providing options means that if some people are infected with the coronavirus, they will be locked again when new cases appear. It is therefore essential to be vaccinated.
What if we got sick after being vaccinated?
The answer is, when we learn to drive, we drive the car carefully. However, when we get a license, we can start breaking the traffic rules. As a result, after vaccination, we still need to maintain social distancing, including wearing masks to protect ourselves. We do not know that the person we pass could give us a virus. Just like getting your cold and flu shot, you should always avoid catching the common cold and flu from another person, so you should keep your distance. You can see a pattern where new cases appear after opening the lock.
Delays in vaccination
A developing country like India has a large population and people work in unorganized sectors. Taxes on high and middle incomes to generate income to be paid to businesses should be a good move for vaccine production. It is about managing the country’s resources. Companies that do vaccinations must have sufficient resources. In the meantime, until everyone in India is vaccinated, we will use preventive measures to not let the disease spread.
All countries need to manage the economy internally and restore balance by adjusting employment and income ceilings because other countries have nothing to do with internal policies aimed at eradicating household poverty.
Unless we’re born with a feeling, we won’t feel it
See his shoes; I understood family poverty

You cannot afford the coronavirus or have no income because you are the only person to take care of your family, so you have to go to work. If you are healthy and have the resources, you can support your family. COVID-19 undoubtedly exposes the economy and society to new challenges, testing time and models; confirm the past, present and future; including obedience, emotion and caring for people living in poverty, isolation and poor health. Public health is essential – the body needs a permanent food supply, the body needs blood.
