That was a known from the get-go.

The challenge here is to make sure our emergency systems don't get overwhelmed with everybody getting sick at the same time!

Even if we have the vaccine, some polls suggest about 25% of the US population wont go get vaccinated.

I remember estimates up to 1 million may die, I think we are on track to get close to that!

Yea, I've been going inside homes. It's touchless while I'm in there, and I wear a mask, which has been mostly okay, sometimes sketchy - as several times when I turned around to ask a question and the owner was three feet behind, following me around the house without a mask. Arrgghh.
Very impersonal. No hand shaking etc. I don't see much light at the end of the tunnel yet.
A doctor told my better half that he believes we will all eventually get a dose of the virus. I hope that comes in the form of something from the doctor. Some people won't do well with it otherwise.


According to our people masks do little.
Tis not to stop you catching something but rather if you already have it to stop you spreading it.
That's why they use them in operating theatres. To protect the patient from you not the other way around.
Where there is a serious bio hazard like a really bad disease you usually see the staff wearing full bio gear, gowns, gloves, etc.
About all a mask on its own will do is perhaps make you feel safer.
Might even give you a false sense of security.
Very few in use around here.
