We are social creatures. Being social is one of our greatest needs and hardest hit during Covid 19. There are many aspects to this situation. Physical space has to be considered. Wind direction and velocity of sneezing and coughing force are factors. Masks have helped degrade the potency of the s[read.

The latest news that is abuzz in the media is centered around social distancing. Staying in our homes and regional lock downs are rife. International borders have been closed and some nations are flirting with quarantines. Much of global travel is in shutdown mode. The hotel and travel industry is affected. Those of us who go on various trade show and conference venues are curbed in our travels.

It's when we move from space to time that things get complicated> The duration of virus residue on various surfaces and varying temperatures have to be considered. This brings into play different seasons and weather conditions worldwide. Wind conditions temperature, travel patterns and even ocean currents affect viral spread. Where the challenge that affects us all involves uncertainty.

There are many unknowns. There is no definitive data on the effect of quarantining. The situation blurs into the realm of speculation and fake news as far as recovery plans go. The worst case scenario indicates we all may be under social distancing quarantine procedures until MAY 2022! At best there may be reoccurrences of restrictions in the cold seasons.

Based on political situations there may be a spatial gerrymandering nightmare from state to state and district to district. Imagine a prison with different blocks locked down at various locations and times. Number of critical care beds will be a factor.

We have every reason to fast and pray continually for resolution. For most of us this is the challenge of a lifetime. Let's valiantly go forth and meet it!

Good Morning Mke,

We started on March 14, it was extended to April 26 and now they are talking about May 9. There are some exceptions but the normal burger has to stay home.
As we have a garden we at least can stretch our legs. Those living in an apartment with a small balcony are the worst off. I hope you and your family are staying safe and healthy.

Greetings from the south of Spain,

Taetske

Good morning Taetske from Maryland gov. Larry Hogans fiefdom.
I'm glad you are blessed with garden space. When it gets a bit warmer I will fight off muscle atrophy and get out to my garden space, We'll soldier on!

Yes, these are some crazy times. The whole economic impact is staggering. COVID-19 is going to be the harbinger of massive change on all fronts I believe.

This is certainly something I never imagined happening in this day and age with all the knowledge and technology we have in the world of medicine.

We can't say we weren't warned though. It's been a topic of concern for quite some time. It's sad we weren't more prepared.

Stay Well,

Michael

If this lasted to May 2022, I fear the virus would be the least of some people's worries. The containment would be worse than the virus for many. Many of us would be fine but others....not so much!

At least in Virginia, there's less control over hauling your firearm out and generating your own commerce in the wild!
