so far, so good.
but i'm worried that people will start letting their guard down now...
The State government has earned credibility...
How is this gonna work on the baseball field when having to tag a player out?
And what if the ball is handled by an infected hand?
(creating things as I wait for a drastically reduced season)
Massachusetts was one of the hardest hit states during the pandemic, but it has bent the curve of corona virus infections.
We still have infections, we still got the post Memorial Day spike, but we are back where we were in late March. We have
daily case loads now around 200. At our peak, we were nearly 2000. The numbers of deaths attributed to the disease is also
down to levels last seen in April. Now it is 1-2 dozen whereas at the peak it was about 250.
I feel like most other parts of the country didn't start feeling the anxiety of up-ticking virus counts until more recently. Take
some advice from a post peak state: wear your damned masks! Even outside. And stay 6 feet apart from anyone you don't
live with. Stay as close to home as possible when you do venture out. Have food delivered. Do what ever you can. I feel like
we can all finally take a collective deep breathe here in MA, albeit mask-covered.
This isn't over, and I fear that it is just really beginning for some areas.
Since Massachusetts doesn't seem to be much in the national news, I assume you guys are doing pretty well. I just hope that you don't make the mistake most other states seem to have made, opening up too early and causing a coronavirus spike.
It's almost literally true to say that Florida, where I am, has a larger number of new cases every day than the previous day. I ended up in the hospital for a week in mid-February with influenza A and pneumonia, and have almost not been out of the house since, because I really, really don't want to get the virus. It's very boring and depressing. I'm almost living on YouTube, but I simply refuse to go out until there is either a vaccine or a significant medical intervention. My wife is an x-ray tech and sees many sick people every day, so she will probably bring it home to me sooner or later, despite all precautions.
