    1. Positive cases are up, death rates are are dropping, which tells us that now it’s younger or non-compromised people that are testing positive. We have also become much better at treatment options, just need to protect the elderly and compromised. If you are under 70, your survival rate starts at 99.something percent. Until there is a widely distributed and reliable vaccine or herd immunity, there is a good chance many/most of us will catch it. Are we forgetting it’s a virus? How many of us catch a cold every winter?

    2. Rod, although death RATES are dropping, overall deaths increase their march higher every day. Hope it isn’t someone in your family or group of friends. Also, hospitalizations are up. Long-term issues are not well known yet, other than there’s a good chance many people of all ages will have breathing difficulties for years (or lifetime?), heart problems. etc., many of which could lead to reduced lifestyle and lifespan. So you can stuff the idea it “it’s just a virus/ cold” BS. And it’s widely known that herd immunity will cost the US another 500,000-1,000,000 lives. Ask the people that have some expertise in this area, not your Fox “News” hosts or the orange one.
