State Counsellor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi wrote about the immune system and plans to distribute
food supplies on her Facebook page yesterday.
Recently, the phrase “immune system” keeps popping into my head. Regretfully, three of our citizens have passed away because of COVID-19. All three who passed away had underlying diseases. That was why they were weak to fight the COVID-19. It means their immune systems were weak. I think people with underlying diseases and elderly people know that their immune systems are weak.
Please don’t forget that your immune system can become weak if you don’t take care of your lifestyle and if you don’t eat properly. Please take care of yourself. Each and every citizen is valuable for the country. The collective strength of the people is the immune system of the country.
Starting from today we will begin the programme to distribute food supplies all over the country to citizens in the basic strata of society who don’t have regular income.
This type of huge programme has never been done before. We may say the strength of a steel chain lies in its weakest link. The resiliency of a country can be measured in terms of its ability to take care of its weakest people.
Please support and provide assistance to the food distribution programme. Make sure good intentions don’t turn into naught. Please rein in greed and anger systematically. We won’t leave behind any person who is in need. If you do have to wait, please have patience.
Let us overcome, all of us together, all the challenges we will have to face by building up a strong immune system for our country.
Let me end this message with something to brag about. I have finished making a mask. Please see left.(Translated by Kyaw Myaing)
