Don Dokken slams the government for not keeping the pandemic under control.
In a conversation with KNAC.COM , Don said:
”The world is a scary place right now. We’ve got an election [in the United States] coming up in four months. COVID viruses are spiking. People are dying all over the world. Some places worse — in Brazil, it was over a million cases [of the novel coronavirus]. It’s terrible. I put a lot of blame on our government for not keeping it more under control.
In Japan, they have, like, five or 10 deaths a month, and we’re having 10 thousand cases a day,
It’s because people are not wearing masks, people are not going by the rules. You see pictures in Japan — everybody‘s wearing a mask, everybody. And the COVID there is almost nothing.
They say if everybody wore a mask, we could get this under control within a couple of months, but for some reason, people — I guess mostly younger people — think they’re invincible, and they’re not. I talked to Mikkey Dee from Scorpions a couple of weeks ago — he caught it. And he said he was sick as a dog a couple of months ago. He beat it. Him and his wife both got it, and he said it’s really awful. You don’t wanna get it. So I just wish people would pay more attention. This isn’t the flu.”
