[After a year of generally successful handling the COVID crisis with very small numbers of infections, the government seemed unprepared for the current major outbreak, instead relying on its plan to restrict vaccines supply to two types and have the public wait until the vaccine can be produced locally.
The military continued to move forward on massive weapons procurement. The public has strongly criticized the government response to the latest COVID wave and the continued military spending while people die unvaccinated.]
