If anyone had told me that we would be experiencing a World-Wide pandemic in my lifetime, and we would be wearing masks just to walk to check our mailbox, I would have shrugged it off as sheer lunacy. In fact that’s exactly what I did those many months ago when this all started. Boy was I wrong.
So far world-wide this pandemic has made over 40 million people infected ( 40,550,354 to date ) and killed over a million of them ( 1,123,128 to date ). 220,523 Americans and 9,794 Canadians have died from this pandemic. By comparison China where all this started is reporting less deaths than Canada, but with a population of over 1.44 billion people I think we can safely say that China is very likely fudging on the actual numbers. For all we know there could be millions of deaths in China alone. We will never know.
This doesn’t look like it’s going away any time soon, even with a vaccine it could take years, even decades, to manufacture and administer the vaccine to everyone, and that’s if it doesn’t mutate or produce other strains more resistant to a vaccine.
I would not want to be a child growing up in a world where you had to wear a mask to go anyplace, it’s a strange world to grow up in, I wish them all the very best, they’re going to need it.
