Sharing this observation to simply note how easily it was for someone (me!) to become… complacent? In March, before there were even 5,000 *total cases* in the US, I recall prompting friends, relatives, etc. to pay attention b/c it was going to get a lot worse. It did. And then there was a momentary pause (so it seemed). But then, in the past few days/weeks it seemed like things were getting worse. Though, I hadn’t really paid a lot of attention to the numbers. So, I can’t help but feel a bit concerned that as we race past 40,000 cases *per day* that there doesn’t seem to be a lot of reaction, or worry on the part of… well, nearly anyone. This is all purely anecdotal and based on no data or information. I had sort of assumed that, of course, the virus was still out there and cases were continuing to pile up. But, wow! Considering how freaked everyone was when there were only a few thousand cases total… I mean, I feel like Jon Lovitz in League of Their Own: [Lovitz]: You’re up to 40,000 cases each day. Kit Keller : We only had 500 new daily cases in March! [Lovitz]: Well then, this would be more, wouldn’t it? I know. We went from 500 to 5,000 daily cases in a week back then. Still… 40,000 daily seems like it could get out of hand.
