I was Wrong about Coronavirus

I just want to clearly admit an error: I was wrong about the coronavirus situation and dismissed it too easily. I was thinking only of individual risk and didn’t think of what could happen if a sizable proportion of the population became sick and contagious.

For most folks, the virus itself is not much worse than getting a bad flu. However, being healthy cannot protect us from the social and economic disruptions of this pandemic.

I doubt there are any humans who won’t be affected, sooner or later, one way or another.

John Hopkins University has a nifty “dashboard” showing the locations and numbers of cases across the whole planet. To temper all this bad news, it also shows a count of recovered cases: Operations Dashboard for ArcGIS
