    I have read several reactions below. Many say this is no worse than the flu. If that’s the case then why are so many dieing and why is this disease touching the world in such a devastating way making everyone in a whispers distance sick to the point of death ? Would you be willing to walk into a hospital right now without a mask or gloves without fear of contracting COVID-19? I don’t think so. Chances may be that this might be like the flu pandemic but the difference is that our doctors are not familiar with this strain and I believe we should do what we are asked to do by confining ourselves and praying for those who are on the front lines to find a cure for this horrible disease that is contracted so easily. Pressuring the government to “get us back out into society” mentality could put us all at an even higher risk. I’m 66 years of with underlying problems that could KILL me and my husband is 71 and a heart transplant patient who would also DIE if we were to get sick. You may say we have lived our lives so let us go and that’s ok. But my husband and I still have our grandbabies that we waited 60 years for to watch grow up! So in my opinion, which many may think insignificant, we should be supporting our doctors and nurses and praying God will give them wisdom to find an antiviral to take all this mess away! Please don’t bite the hand that feeds you!
