"one month after...."? Without getting into details, I'm pretty certain my mother passed from this virus back in mid December. I love New York, but I also recognize the narcissism that exudes as with every sunrise they see themselves as the epicenter of the epicenter of life itself. There is something rather unique happening in New York. New York is Italy. That does not inherently mean that every city is obligated to experience this issue in the same way, shape, and outcome as NY (or Italy). The science supports this perspective. NYC got hit hard. The residents spread out to escape. Suffolk suffers from the same issues as the city, but then compounds as sick city dwellers head out island. South Florida got hit, too. Many cases originated in Europe, came to NY, and then fled to snow bird residences, etc. But as we stew through this, virtually every calculator is dramatically lowering their projected life loss. And as that happens, and as social distancing slows the spread, medicine is catching up.
