Observation on COVID-19

This is based on a tweet I saw from Hannah McGregor, whom I don’t know.

If we do social distancing and self‑isolation right, it will feel like we were overreacting. That’s the goal of preventative public health. It’s like Y2K: if we pull this off, everyone will remember it as an overblown threat that fizzled out.

We need to keep this in mind when we’re coping with inconvenience, distancing, isolation.
