My take on Covid-19

Recommended Posts

Having been around death all my life, I think this one is hitting home because we haven't seen this kind of fear since the 1918 Spanish Flu.

In the end I believe a bunch of folks will die, same as from the every year influenza, probably more but not by much.

I think often times, folks don't think about there own mortality very often, because well.... Its a taboo subject, who wants to think about their death, not many I know of.

The truth is we all have that appointment, we just don't know when.

Every person owes a debt, and it will be paid if your thinking about it or not, at some point.

After all the death I've seen, I would rather like to think it is our mortality that defines us, not to be feared, but rather to remind us to live everyday as it was your last.

Take care of those that can't take care of themselves, and do the right things, instead of the wrongs.

Were all human, after all.

I totally agree. I think we are seeing a overreaction fueled by panic to this one. I understand the need to take extra precautions if you are elderly (guess I may fall in that class) or compromised, but I suspect in the final tally the damage done to people due to economic repercussions may outweigh the effects of the virus. My time will come when it comes, meanwhile I will not live in fear. I am as careful as I can be, but I'm not going to live in a cocoon. I often wonder if all the resources should not be focused on protecting those at high risk instead of the general population... just my opinion.

You are correct, but the logistics is a nightmare, and there are still politics in play.

Your no more older then I am LOL, you have wisdom and common sense, that which is sorely lacking in these times.

I worry about it, but for my 21 year old son who has asthma that goes wild when he gets sick.  He will be alone. I worry about getting it because I am a runner and don’t want to lose my lung capacity. However I am considered an essential worker and am still working every day. I just try to stay safe and stay away from others.
