Sadly, there are fairly large number of people in this country who have an "acceptable" number of deaths from COVID-19 in mind regardless of whether or not they could have been prevented with a minimum level of competence and desire.

I'm not one of them. Zero deaths would have been my acceptable number.

I'm sorry for your situation.


What's your point? My mother-in-law is dying alone in a hospital of COVID-19. My cousin is a critical care nurse worried sick about her own health as she cares for the sick and dying. Another cousin is a first responder placing himself in danger daily to help others with COVID-19. My best friends 24 year old daughter was bed ridden alone in an apartment for two weeks, three states away. Who knows what the long term effects of COVID-19 will be on her lungs.

The families of those with COVID-19 have to sit paralyzed, waiting while their loved ones rely on the grace of strangers because this disease isolates us. It kills me to watch my wife suffer because she has to accept that her mother is dying alone. The suffering of people far exceeds any number of predicted deaths you come up with. So, I ask again,

What, exactly, is your point?
