My personalized respect for the COVID pandemic was never ever in query, and has been knowledgeable by a entrance line look at, and now a new, individual intimacy. As I create this, I just about definitely have COVID. My son, two of my daughters, and my wife are all ill and have analyzed constructive, and we all have a great deal the very same array of symptoms (none way too bad, I hasten to note). I await my affirmation by take a look at result. Meanwhile, I respect this contagion and have from the get started. I also resent the drama.
Whilst general public policy and coordinated crisis reaction have been seeking, the media reaction has been a veritable feeding frenzy, and the systematic extraction of every droplet of drama to hold it heading. As the declaring goes: never squander a excellent disaster. My contention is that a thick overlay of drama where by unencumbered information ought to be is among the the causes we have so horribly squandered this a person. We are mired in the dramademiology (my own neologism) of COVID.
