My family is still well. No COVID. Good news, my next paycheck and going forward will be full pay, no 8% haircut. Youngest son is preparing to go back to college on a modified Fall 2020 schedule. Bad news, still have to work from home. All our old project files, references, drawings, etc. are at the office. They are a wealth of information, and I can’t access them except through an “essential employee” on site that doesn’t know what they are looking for.
I laugh when some folks say this will be over in a few more months. They are usually the types that believe the politicians and news media, and can’t figure things out for themselves.
On 7/23/2020 for the U.S., I saw there were 1 million people who were confirmed through testing they contracted the virus in the last 15 days. And, that brought the total infected to 4 million. With an estimated population of 331 million that means this is estimated to last, at the current rate, roughly:
(331-4 million) x (15 days/1 million) x (1 year/365 days) = 13 years. The infection rate is near the capacity of our health care systems, so I’d expect this estimate to be not too low and not too high. A good rough guess!
Come on vaccines!!!
