I live in a very small county, with less than 8,000 people. We were having one or two cases here and there, and then a few weeks ago we had seven cases in one day ... then over the next few days the count jumped up even more. It seems to be up and down right now. --- I go out as little as possible, and will need to get out soon, as I'm out of a lot of stuff, and running out of even more. I probably shouldn't wait so long, but I just prefer to stay away from people for as long as I can.
The way they talk about this virus, it doesn't sound like it is something that will go away on its own. If immunity to it is short lived, then people will keep getting it over and over until they finally die of it. I'm starting to wonder how a vaccine can help. Can a vaccine be made that won't lose its immunity? And if only a handful of people take the vaccine, we're stuck in the same cycle. (I don't get flu/pneumonia shots, but that's only because I can go all Winter without getting a cold, so I don't want to take a shot from someone who needs it, when I haven't needed it so far. --- I catch a cold through my feet. If I step barefooted on something icy cold, I can feel a cold coming on just a few hours later, and by morning I am miserable with a cold. I've learned to start cold medicines right away after the bottoms of my feet get icy cold. I know someone who catches colds from going to bed with a wet head. I've never had a problem with catching a cold from going to bed with a wet head. Weird how that works.)
As far as the other craziness going on is concerned ... I live in a small county, and my 'neck of the woods' is quiet and peaceful. I don't watch the news at all anymore, so I haven't been bogged down with depression too much so far ... but Autumn is coming, so gotta stay on top of it.
Stay safe y'all.
