It’s not a threat.
It doesn’t mean anything.
It’s all a conspiracy.
That is what COVID-19 is, according to the American right. In fact, it is such a conspiracy, non-threat, and meaningless thing that seventeen hundred victims of COVID-19 were just uncovered in New York.
New York state is reporting more than 1,700 previously undisclosed deaths at nursing homes and adult care facilities as the state faces scrutiny over how it’s protected vulnerable residents during the coronavirus pandemic. At least 4,813 people have died from COVID-19 in the state’s nursing homes since March 1, according to a tally released by Cuomo’s administration late Monday that, for the first time, includes people believed to have been killed by the coronavirus before their diagnoses could be confirmed by a lab test.

This is not the end of the pandemic. We are just getting started. COVID-19 is a very serious threat, and a lot of people are not taking it seriously. Unfortunately, experience is a very hard lesson here, and one which a wise man would not want to learn by.
Do your part- stay safe, stay away, and please be very careful.
