Thankfully, most people are doing the right and responsible thing by adhering to the lockdown rules, though it's sad that so many were in the wrong place at the wrong time and became infected while innocently shopping, working and/or conducting business.
It seems to me that one of the nastiest parts of this pandemic is that a person in any particular location doesn't really know there's a problem in his area until a few weeks after the problem has already taken a foothold, and that's even if the person has been paying attention.
The wanton disregard and denial is of course something else entirely, and it seems to come in so many flavors.
I'm sure we've all seen the stories of the people almost gone who've said "I can't have Covid, it's not real."
I saw a story sometime in the last week where a nurse in a hot spot was relating how more than once she's had a person almost gone who has said "I'm so sorry, please please give me the vaccine." Of course at that point there is nothing she can say except (her words) "I'm sorry, but it's just too late." That one really stuck with me, the complete lack of understanding on the part of the patient regarding how vaccines in general work, and how that nurse likely wishes she could just give people a shot at that point and cure them.
One way or another we'll get through it.
