As we have experienced the pandemic, this last 6 months have been a lull of sorts-everything has sort of flattened out.
Infections are down, hospitalizations are down, and so are deaths.
But wait-deaths are down-but they're not completely down to maybe a dozen a week-they're at the rate of 300-500 people dying every day.
That's a lot of people per week. That's anywhere from 2100 to 3500 people a week. Multiply that figure for the month, and that's a lot more people.
We've lost our empathy, our sorrow and fear of the virus. It might just come back to haunt us.
This essay is better than I am at saying how bad this is.
