How many will die

I can’t get the chorus of Crosby Stills Nash and Young’s song Four Dead in Ohio out of my head.
How many of my fellow caregivers will die from Covid. How many dead in the ICU? How many dead in ED? How many will, like so many people who are suffering from this pandemic, die alone.

I found this list today https://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/927976 John Kerry famously asked about the Vietnam war “How do you ask a man to be the last man to die in Vietnam? How do you ask a man to be the last man to die for a mistake?”

Today health care workers are dying because our political leaders and some in the media (Fox) made the MISTAKE of wasting time calling Covid-19 a hoax, the common cold or just the flu.

I congratulate the sponsors of this discussion having the “wisdom” to create a Never Again report. This can NEVER happen again in America to health care workers or any of us.

Thank you.
