I read about, hear about, and see people who are just losing their minds over this coronavirus thing.
They are attempting to hermetically seal themselves off from the outside world in an effort to protect themselves from the coronavirus.
It’s almost comical to me to watch some of these people chasing their tails in an effort to combat this un-seeable enemy which may be lurking on any surface, or floating along on any waft of air.
We’ve got people in hazmat suits.
We’ve got people wearing all manner of masks.
We’ve got people disinfecting anything they may touch or come in contact with.
We’ve got people washing and scrubbing their hands incessantly.
According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, there are over 1,700 known viruses, bacteria, and other pathogens that infect people.
And this data was prior to the rise of the coronavirus.
So we can now change that figure to over 1,701.
Each year in the United States about 36,000 people die from flu-related complications, and more than 200,000 are hospitalized.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), “Infectious diseases kill over 17 million people a year [worldwide]. Nearly 50,000 men, women and children are dying every day from infectious diseases.”
And these figures from the World Health Organization are prior to the rise of the coronavirus as well…, and you just started all of your masking, disinfecting, scrubbing and social distancing a couple weeks ago?
We have to ask ourselves, what has suddenly changed that we are so concerned about an infectious disease?
The only thing I know for sure is that America and the world will never be the same again…, for better or for worse.
I’m thinking worse.
I would like to recommend reading the book, “Be a perfect person in just three days,” by Stephen Manes.
I think it’s especially relevant these days, regarding cures that may be worse than the disease itself.
I value your feedback and I’d love to hear from you!
