It’s been a few exhausting weeks since the outbreak of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) has gone public.
First case in China in November.
Now as a Pandemic in 126 countries!
Over 132,000 confirmed cases, so far .
And around 5,000 deaths 🕱.
The numbers are projected to climb/////.
With Dr. Faucci of NIH’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) warning that it will “get worse before it gets better.”
Everything is closing down from our work facilities to Cruises, Broadway, and Disney.
Of course, we need the government (at all levels), health professionals, and pharmaceutical companies to get their acts together with an effective response strategy.
Also, this is a wake up call for better preparedness for all sorts of natural and man made disasters that are awaiting.
Today it’s a virus (natural or biowarfare) and tomorrow it’ll be a devastating cyber attack that we are woefully unprepared for.
No more playing politics, half measures, and waiting for the next shoe to drop (Spanish Flu, Pearl Harbor, 9/11).
The rest of us need to do our “prepping” parts and to say a prayer or two and keep going.
