    Distancing is the most effective method of defending from the coronavirus.

    If two individuals never come within close proximity or exchange anything physical upon which the virus particles might be carried, then it is impossible for transmission to occur.

    Naturally, it is impossible to remain safely distant and never touch anything that someone else has recently touched.

    So the challenge becomes a trade-off between maximizing safety and living your life.

    The danger is the risk of becoming complacent.

    It would be dangerous thinking to say: "Well I did [such and such] and it didn't result in me getting sick, so that action can be safely repeated."

    That is incorrect.

    Every instance carries a risk.

    Don't let your guard down. Ever.

    Even when others do, even when other people around you are acting like there is no risk, that does not mean there is no risk.

    Protect yourself, protect others around you.

    Together, we can fight this war between all humans on one side, and a virus on the other, and together we can win it.

    Those who are being diligent are to be commended.

    How do people come to believe something, what factors contribute to their knowing, can facts be facts for some and not others? Covid and the election have demonstrated one fact: people believe things that are not true and they believe them so strongly they will die or invade our capitol over lies. Why has a nation with so much information become so dumb and so easily managed by various media sources.

    Thankfully infection rates and hospitalizations are going down. More work to be done but thank goodness the doofus is gone.

    'Trump Is Guilty of Pandemicide'

    "History will show the former U.S. president was staggeringly negligent during the pandemic’s deadly third wave."

    https://foreignpolicy.com/2021/02/18...f-pandemicide/

    "Rather, the path of pandemicide was paved in pursuit of the president’s reelection and his relentless, all-consuming post-election campaign to refute his opponent’s victory, claiming election fraud and even theft. Despite the summer surge in COVID-19 infections nationwide, Trump abandoned virtual campaigning in favor of crowded, largely maskless gatherings of his supporters, knowingly risking that each rally would become a superspreader event. According to a study by Stanford University, 18 campaign rallies held between June 20 and Sept. 22, 2020, spawned in excess of 30,000 COVID-19 cases, likely leading to more than 700 deaths."
