How has Hawaii’s statewide coronavirus lockdown affected me?
Well, I am retired and live on the Big Island. I have an aneurysm and am way overdue for tests on my damaged carotid artery. There is no vascular specialist on the Big Island. I need to go to Honolulu for tests and maybe surgery. My wife needs to see doctors in Honolulu also.
Unfortunately, everything is shut down for little reason. This is all about politics. Gov. Ige waited too long to act. So now we suffer.
And for what? He is violating our constitutional rights. He must be held accountable.
