Staying home, the six foot rule and hand washing are apparently causing viral doubling times to lengthen. Seattle looks better.
Vaccines are perhaps months away. Chloroquine seems a current hope to stem the tide. It is being provided by much of the pharma world. Hopefully controlled studies will demonstrate high efficacy while it is now used with high hopes. We know the drug’s risks from years of experience. l suspect at least 99 other meds or so worldwide are being tested. By the grace of God, perhaps one drug or a cocktail of drugs will prove highly effective.
These are uncertain times that we all hope will shorten. Thanks to the courageous front-liners and those in the rear who remain vigilant and careful. Please let us not profiteer or politicize this difficult worldwide crisis. This is about hanging together so that we will not “hang” separately.
