    Excellent Article On Covid-19

    This EXCELLENT article came from my wife, a PhD microbiologist. It was written by a professor of immunology and infectious diseases at University of Massachusetts Dartmouth and it is in easy to understand lay language. There are facts on how the virus is transmitted, reopening the economy, and great practical guidance on avoiding the risks. Highly recommended reading!

    Very good information, but also very sobering.

          Meh, after a 30 plus year career dance with the Grim Reaper I've come to the conclusion that death is not the worst thing that can happen us. In fact it is quite logical. With that said, use your own best judgement, trust your own intuition and practice a healthy lifestyle; just don't stop living to avoid a remote chance of dying.

            Since this can spread when you are asymptomatic, it most definitely isn't about "me" exclusively, it is also about those who I may unknowingly infect if I don't follow the recommendations of the experts.

            Well, there's your opinion. For what it's worth.

            No, that's science and not opinion and I'm done.

          What's hardest to wrap your head around is that you aren't making the decision for yourself, you are also making it for everyone you come in contact with, and the closer you are to them the more you have done that.

          In a country that prides itself on individuality, and being able to take care of ourselves, and even being able to take care of ourselves so that we can take care of others, the idea of being passive and sheltering is an anethema. Nevertheless, the virus doesn't care how we feel. Its job is to spread, and it does it well when we create the right conditions.
