This news has shaken me as much as anything has recently.  It seems to me now inevitable that there will be widespread, uncontrolled resurgence. Some states are prematurely relaxing restrictions; others still haven’t imposed them.  Active defiance of lockdown orders is appearing, amplified by partisan media.  Mix in the terrible economic impacts and inflammatory rhetoric, and I fear civil unrest becomes a real possibility.

It seems like many won’t take this seriously until someone they are close to is dying–and by then it is far too late.
