Yes, COVID-19 is worse than the flu

There are many who say that COVID-19 is no worse than the flu, car accidents, and add in all the health problems.

All those together have never crashed the system worldwide like this has. It IS worse, because of its infection rate, and it has not even reached its peak.

Please, continue to practice social distancing and all the things that are suggested. Do it for yourself and also for others, those who are listening and trying to do the right thing. Also do it for all those very brave and wonderful nurses, doctors, health care workers, all of those who support them, grocery store clerks, the list is endless.

We can do our part by staying in our homes. It’s not as if we are being asked to storm the beaches at Normandy.
