my take on the covid 19

i am a retired family physician who managed to survive a moderate covid 19 infection this year
i have read a lot about past pandemics throughout history
we can learn a lot from what worked then and what didnt work
the same applies to this covid 19 pandemic
i watch news about the covid 19 but try to stay away from the fringes on both sides

i read a lot of reputable articles on the covid 19

i am in a high risk category and have several folks in my circle that are high risk
i want to do what i can to protect them from getting infected like my wife she and i did

as i think about it i probably got infected from volunteering at the school or at the grocery store
those were my two highest risk exposures

i listen to two people who tell the truth
dr fauci and dr birx
they are speaking true science unbent by politics
science doesnt lie it tells the truth
man lies and doesnt tell the truth

if we follow what they say we will fare better than those who oppose what they say

this is the  most contagious virus that is easily spread to everyone we have seen in my lifetime

my wife she and i probably maybe could be immune
science will tell us soon if we are
we happily await the vaccine

this virus will come in waves
this first one is not the worst one 
that will be the next one caused by folks now overexposing everyone to the virus
that surge should be coming over the next few weeks
the next one maybe the biggest one will hit us this fall when the flu usually hits

until the vaccine comes the waves will just keep on coming
although they might get smaller as time goes on 

trump and pence were exposed and we will know in the next 2 weeks if they are infected
theres nothing they can do but wait and not infect others
the rules to keep from getting it are simple
follow them and you will fare better than those who dont
my guess is one of the two will get it

schools should not open this year that includes colleges except for online courses
they the younger kids are good vectors for this virus
if they do open we will see those kids who are immunosuppressed and the teachers and employees in high risk groups get infected and their families
i cant see a scenario where kids can go to school and not have this happen

there will be no football or baseball or basketball etc at any level this year
they will try 
the numbers will not be good especially i predict tor football
those big ole lineman arent going to fare well with the covid 19 infections

the us has 1/3 of the cases in the world
we have 1/4 of the death cases in the world
those numbers arent good
those numbers arent accurate
the actual cases are much much higher probably tens if not a hundred times more
the death rates are also much higher 

this fall if folks cant do mail in ballots 
well people are going to vote
voting will kill a lot of people this year
in states where they do mail in voting

i know what needs to be done to keep from getting this infection
from spreading it to others

i am taking personal responsibility to make sure that doesnt happen

i look around at folks
see them 
without masks
in groups
too close to each other
thats 3 guarantied ways to catch this virus

i feel like i have been able to find the truth in all of this
i know what needs to be done to be safe
thats what i/we are going to do

if you chose to not do this then you bear some responsibility for the viruses spread

each employer has to look closely at how they can make it safe for their workers to work
for their customers to be safe
i look at traders joes as a model of how to do it

there are some business that just cant safely operate until this all passes
until this all passes in 1 or 2 or even 3 years

we in the us 
we are heading in the wrong direction and are leading in the wrong statistics
