The CDC was incompetent! Biogen should have known better! That guy in NH was a DOCTOR!
Sure, but this kind of attitude stokes panic. I'm not saying we shouldn't hold organizations accountable, but they are also made up of people who are wrong and make mistakes.
If you got 100 "emergency" calls an hour, would you know the ONE that month to take seriously? If you've gotten colds and been sick here and there your whole life, would you know THIS is the bad one?
COVID-19 + Boston bombing
I was in Boston for the marathon bombing and it was terrible, but what was worse was the people having hot takes on the bomber, or the Boston police, or the runners, or the crowd...
This reminds me a lot of that.
I like that there is raised awareness and we're all taking is seriously. I like that many companies are urging folks to work from home. I like that I, personally, am washing my hands more.
I'm also trying to identify what it is that I can and can't do. Embracing the former, and rejecting the latter.
