No te Preocupes

I am not worried about the COVID-19 pandemic.

But, then, I did not worry about the Plague, the Black Death, Small Pox, Polio, or any other disease. After all, my corporal body ceased to exist about 24 centuries ago. Physical disease no longer affects me. It’s one of the relatively few advantages of being dead.

On the other hand, there are many who will be affected by the current COVID-19 pandemic who believe that they are just as inviolate as I am. Most will not die, but this disease is not limited to binary outcomes. Many who contract the disease, but do not die, will have some or all of the rest of their lives compromised by such problems as permanent lung damage or autoimmune-like disease.

I was going to add diminished mental faculties to the list of long-term effects, but those who refuse to take common sense measures to protect themselves are already affected.
