OK: First things first.
And now, re yesterday’s post:
Ralph Mason: “I think the vast majority of folks who know something about virology, epidemiology and public health in general disagree pretty strongly with Friedman and Katz. I keep looking to what’s going on in China and especially South Korea and the evidence from these places does not support their views. I think this is probably a much better approach at least for the next month as we learn more and more about the virus and the full scope of this outbreak.”
→ Agreed. Hours after I posted last night, I posted an update. (So now I look like an idiot, but . . . oh, well. It’s a challenging time.)
Here was the conclusion of that update, in brief:
<< . . . I LISTENED TO “THE DAILY” PODCAST WHY THE AMERICAN APPROACH IS FAILING, AND NOW THE ONLY THING I’M SURE OF IS THAT NONE OF US SHOULD RISK EXPOSING ANYONE ELSE UNTIL WE’VE “FLATTENED THE CURVE.” >>
We should know lots more soon. Until then, we should err on the side of caution.
Have a great day!
Can you imagine going through this without the Internet?

Quote of the Day
Governments are necessarily continuing concerns. They have to keep going in good times and bad. They therefore need a wide margin of safety. If taxes and debt are made all the people can bear when times are good, there will be certain disaster when times are bad.~Calvin Coolidge
