Patience. We aren’t used to being slow and just waiting for medical intervention for the sick and a preventative vaccine for the virus. Our culture values the fast, I have used the example of fast-food. The weather is getting nice and after a winter that was cold, dark and isolating many people are congregating in parks. Physical distancing is rare but just because the weather is better does not mean the pandemic is over. Watching the crowded scenes on the news filled me with sorrow.
They say that a second wave is imminent. As if the first wave is over. Stores, salons and other economical businesses are opening. I know that our economy is suffering but this will not go on forever. We will lose lives. Is it worth it?
