My brother worked with the woman in her 50s who died. She was from the cape. Very sad.

My husband had a few friends who have covid now. All are doing ok except one who has been having seizures.

I’m very frustrated about the mask thing. It’s one thing to have no vaccine or meds, it’s one thing to not have access to testing, it’s one thing to have to shut the world down but it is really awful that Americans can’t get a mask to protect themselves. I’m making my own I guess but I’d prefer an n95.

There are plenty of you tube videos and online info sites for making a good one for yourselves. There are no-sewing ones too.

One women used a bra cup to make a mask now that is creative.

I saw the bra ones months ago. Also saw people using an orange rind in Asia. No idea if that would do anything

Youngest death in their 50's. For the most part, deaths seem to be in the 70's and 80's.

Yes, agree fully. It's completely shameful...Asian countries must be laughing at us.

Especially in cases where leadership are slow to react and are contradicting medical experts. Slow responses and mixed messaging have potentially deadly ramifications and every person out there has a right to be critical of that.

A few thought on that:



1. Most are not informed enough to make proper critique, or for every citizen who is there are five who aren't (need proof of that, log in to social media).



2. Knowing that, a leader SHOULD NOT (and won't) listen to the average idiot on the street in a time of crisis such as this. The only ones influencing them should be the experts at hand.


3. The few places that seem to have responded proactively and appropriately (ie. South Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, etc)...did not do so because of demand from their citizenry (what little I know I can tell you that much).

I meant for today.

But that’s a shame. I read about two Sheriffs in Fl that passed. Age 38 and 39.

An acquaintance’s father passed in RI. He was in his 80s.
