On the subject of the worldwide pandemic, I would like to repeat myself about what I heard from my mother regarding the 1918-1920 pandemic.

Mom lived in New York City with her parents during the last pandemic. It was very traumatic for her, as she repeatedly told me about it while growing up. Mom said that in the area where they lived there were so many deaths that people had to resort to wrapping up the dead in white sheets and then leaving them on the sidewalk to be picked up by a horse drawn wagon. While Mom and my grandparents (Dutch and Finnish, btw) survived the pandemic, many of her neighbors did not. Mom said that she remembered that a family lived next door, a Dutch man and his Indonesian wife, who had three beautiful daughters, and that all three of the daughters passed away. Google says that over 600,000 people died in the US in that pandemic, and that worldwide maybe 100,000,000 died, out of a global population of less than 2 billion.

Politicians, whom do not understand how viruses work and have not studied for years are governing our health however are ignoring these facts.

The cavalier "I'm not wearing a mask, it's just a bad cold" crowd are weaning themselves out of work productivity and will be adding mountains of lifetime medical costs they will be unable to pay, leaving the responsible adults who have followed the rules to avoid infection to pay the bills.

Only 52% of "recovered" hospitalized patients are well enough to return to work so far.
