The coming coronavirus carnage

Ethan Epstein, Washington Times

COVID-19 passes easily from person to person, even among those who feel fine. The virus has a long incubation period — that is, the time in which a person has the virus and can pass it onto others before developing symptoms. Moreover, some may become sick but only experience relatively mild symptoms. They, too, can pass it on to others. All of which is to say — tight, crowded spaces are terrible places to be right now. With its high degree of contagion, the U.S. death toll could be staggering. Some projections suggest that up to half the country could contract the virus. That would mean more than 1 million people dead. This is not a “media” fiction. These are CDC figures.
