  1. Isaiah 26:20 says:

    “We now face a global enemy, one that doesn’t identify its targets by religious, racial, gender or political choice; a virus doesn’t care about maps and boundaries. What matters is that we are all potential hosts, irrespective of who we are or where we live. Under the cold lens of natural selection, the drama of life unfolds without moral judgment: it all boils down to living and reproducing.
    The perversity of a virulent pandemic is that the affected hosts propagate the disease, accelerating the demise of members of their own species. Once infected, we can kill all who unwittingly cross our paths including family and friends.
    Covid-19 will change us as a species. We must respond not just as nations fighting an enemy, but as a species fighting for survival.
    …We would be foolish not to embrace the central message of our predicament: that we must come together to survive, that we are fragile despite our capacity to create and destroy, that the tribal divisions that have defined our moral choices over the past millennia must be tossed aside for our own good.”

    ๐Ÿ’€ “Tom Inglesby, the director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, said on Sunday that the social-distancing measures taken in much of the U.S. to stem the spread of the novel coronavirus haven’t yet had time to fully take effect.
    “We’re still at the very beginning of this outbreak,” Inglesby told Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday.” “We should expect it to continue for some time and focus on social distancing as one of the main interventions to stop it.”
    Wallace asked Inglesby about the possibility of certain regions of the country with low case numbers reopening businesses and allowing public gatherings while maintaining restrictions longer in harder-hit areas.
    Inglesby said such steps could be a possibility in the future, but not while numbers are still rising in just about every state across the country.” https://thehill.com/homenews/sunday-talk-shows/490047-public-health-expert-we-are-still-at-the-very-beginning-of-this
