Yep. Just not quite as bad. From what I've read pandemics tend to go in waves; first wave gets flattened, people venture back out and second wave hits but not as bad; maybe a 3rd or 4th wave each successively less horrendous as herd immunity builds up. The social distancing is all about trying to have a lot of small waves over time so no one wave overwhelms the health system etc resulting in deaths that could have been avoided with proper medical attention. I'm such a coward I intend to stay hunkered down until a vaccine is available. It's not particularly a problem for me as I tend to be an introvert, am retired and am in to the whole 'living off the land' gestalt anyway.
