covid 19-this graph shows how your activities rank

we decided to take a covid 19 year off
this covid 19 thing is going to just get worse over this fall into the winter into the spring
it seems it will be a crescendoing increase that should peak sometime probably in late january or february

we have coming up 
new years 

each will do its on influence on the peak of the covid 19 cases in the next few months
the problem is the cases wont really go down probably 
each bump from these holidays will just make the peak higher and higher
we may reach a half a million deaths from covid 19 by march 

think about this as you start to celebrate these holidays
will it be worth it
is it worth not wearing your mask

i made me a simplistic graph of what it may look like
we are starting today at around 80,000 cases a day
this number will gradually increase until it peaks out
thats the peak of that third wave or whatever it gets called

you can use cases or hospitalizations or deaths
it doesnt matter as the graph will look the same
bad real bad

sorry to say many of you will be contributing to that peak
i and my wife she plan not to be part of this 
we plan to take a covid 19 year off

if we all do big thanksgiving and christmas get to togethers and big new years parties and go all out for halloween
if those non mask wearers dont change what they do 
if big gatherings keep happening 
it will be a dark winter this year

here below is an infograph of where the behaviors we do are ranked
low risk
moderate risk
high risk

if you dont wear a mask you are automatically in the high risk activities categories
as well as those who you are around like friends coworkers family neighbors
ie you make them high risk people

you can see a larger view of this infograph at this link 

my wife she and i since we were sick in march have not done any activities not in the low risk categories
as i wrote above not wearing your mask puts you at a high risk activity level all the time as well as those you potentially expose 

as we head into the cold winter months look closely at what you are about to do 
there will not be a vaccine if its available for most of us until this summer
there will not be a medication that will stop this virus

we all of us can only do these things
wear a mask
keep our distance from others
wash our hands
reduce our risky behaviors

if we dont
what happens this winter 
is on us

be safe
avoid risky behaviors
