I hate that we have to contemplate it when we might have avoided this completely. It’s one poor decision after the next. I talked to a medical doctor in South Korea this evening. They had an outbreak of 15 people, and the government was being criticized for it. It doesn’t seem like this could be real. Nearly 100k people dead. We have a long way to go before we have any sort of herd immunity and a vaccine is much farther off than is being reported — likely winter 2021.

I’m so sorry because this never should have happened.
