Assuming the numbers I just looked at are correct; if my county where a state it would be one of the top three states with COVID-19 infections.
And I have to say I really don't understand why the rest of the country is freaking out at the level they are now.
People are dying so yes being vigilant; especially among the most vulnerable is important. When you're county has more cases of COVID-19 than the next
state you stay home as much as you can to help out in your own little way.
But how is life going here? Traffic on the man road I can see from my roof has a bit less traffic. If you didn't tell me we where in the epicenter of
a world pandemic I wouldn't even notice the difference.
When I go out to do the weekly shopping; again fewer people are out but it is hardly a goast town.
Restaurants are open for take out; had some last night on what would have been our weekly friday restaurant night.
Many businesses are considering "essential" including my own. Though I have been working from home.
When this first started and they were counting cases and deaths in the double digits; predicting that 6 million people per square block where going to
die; I'll admit I was emotionally concerned.
Now home life has become a new normal; I can't wait for this to be over, but I am rather enjoying the extra time I have with the kids and not having
to run around so much. The whole day can go by with out even thinking about COVID-19.
To that end I agree with the OP it won't be long until people around the country ( even here on the "front line") begin to get tired of the constant
scare mongering they see on TV but don't see out side their window. The quarantine has a shelf life and we might be approaching it.
And I think our political leaders know it. Listening to the news their has been a shift in the scare mongering. Now politicians and news anchors are
talking about how life won't get back to normal for two years. I think that this is their last ditch effort to squeeze every day out of this
quarantine as they can.
