After watching the outbreak of COVID-19 for the past two months, I’ve
followed the pace of the infection, its severity, and how our world is
tackling the virus. While we should be concerned and diligent, the
situation has dramatically elevated to a mob-like fear spreading faster
than COVID-19 itself. When 13% of Americans
believe they are currently infected with COVID-19 (mathematically
impossible), full-on panic is blocking our ability to think clearly and
determine how to deploy our resources to stop this virus. Over three-fourths of Americans are scared of what we are doing to our society through law and hysteria, not of infection or spreading COVID-19 to those most vulnerable.
