Don’t underestimate mitigation of virus

Since my job is not affected by the mandate, I realize how lucky I am and why my opinion can easily be disregarded, but I can’t help but wonder how we, as a community, can see the world in so many different ways.

Almost every day there is an article of someone somewhere hating their government for imposing the mitigation, taking away our basic freedoms in the name of saving lives.

All I know is I don’t want a disease there is no cure for. I don’t want to struggle to breathe for weeks with no light at the end of the tunnel.

No one can tell you it’s going to get better because no one knows.

I believe the news I read, and I thank God we have all the news organizations and outlets to verify some stories because no one gets it right all the time, and that includes the government.

As we stay home and stay safe, it does tempt the imagination to fall into the self torment of conspiracy theories, and I can come up with one reason for this thinking.

The good news is if you don’t know anyone personally that has COVID-19, and it doesn’t hit home, it tends not to be real.

But it does prove mitigation works.
