Earlier this year I decided to try to compare the number of Covid deaths in our country to counties in Alabama. I tried to get people to picture entire counties of people vanishing. Now, I’m sorry to say, I’ve moved on to states. We have now had 714,000 people die of Covid in this country…. that’s more than the population of Vermont; that’s more than the population of Wyoming; and that’s more than the population of Washington D.C.
Now, where it might be nice to imagine all the politicians disappearing, what about all the cowboys and whatever they do in Vermont? We are also quickly approaching the populations of Alaska, or North Dakota. Can you imagine all of Alaska with no people in it?!? When this all first started last year I remember the first predictions of 100 to 200,000 possibly dying from it, and I thought that was crazy. We were only at about 10 or 15,000 I think when they made those predictions. Now look at us. I wonder if we will be quicker to take action when the next plague comes along?
