Season 2/ Episode 20: Covid-19 is Not Over, Folks

In All Seriousness

Please Care About Others

In this week’s episode, Jill and Tony discuss their observations of people during this era of on-and-off-again restrictions.

Tony said he’s seen many people behave as though Covid-19 is over.

Both he and Jill agreed that it isn’t. There’s medical proof to back up that conclusion.

Tony advised listeners to do all that they can to remain healthy, so that he and others are positioned to stay healthy as well.

Jill acknowledged that in life, we all must do things we don’t want to do, so the compromise is to, at least, take safety precautions if you can’t stand to stay in your home another minute.

Both have other suggestions:

  • Don’t dwell on what you can no longer do. Instead, focus on things you now have time to do.
  • Go outside and get some vitamin D when you can; just take safety precautions when you do.
  • Practice patience. The sooner society does what medical experts say is needed, the sooner this ordeal will end

Do you agree that Covid-19 is not over? Why or why not? Please leave your responses in the comments section.

Thanks for listening.

    First—Thank you, Tony, for your service and thanks for reminding us that you are one of the workers who is making this new reality bearable for the rest of us. Please be careful out there. I can’t believe there won’t be a second, more severe wave of cases, and I blame poor leadership who vilify expertise and mainstream media. I would like to be wrong about the spread of the virus, but there’s so much we don’t know. Will the summer heat slow covid? Will it resurge in the fall?

    Right now many who haven’t been affected choose to live in a fool’s paradise. Those who have been affected have been to hell and who knows if they’ll ever make it back. I believe people will finally take this virus seriously when they watch someone close to them suffer or perhaps lose a loved one. If they experience a family member or friend dying alone without comfort, reality will sink in. How much comfort will they take in a marginally better economy? And if there is a second wave, won’t the economy suffer more than if we had taken better precautions from the beginning?

    I am appalled when I see so many out without masks and not distancing. Our society puts the individual above the greater good under the guise of freedom. In the end our freedom is compromised when cavalier people insist on imposing their rights to possibly infect others. I wish Americans would learn to balance personal freedom with respect for the greater good. I’m not saying the collectivist society of Thailand is perfect, but Denis and I have great respect for their Buddhist culture that believes in values and societal traditions. Other collectivist societies—South Korea, Japan, New Zealand—have done a much better job in managing the pandemic. Our individualistic society is failing in this fight.
