Great article Andy - I appreciate you for sharing!

I recently wrote a blog comparing Albert Camus' The Plague to our current pandemic. The novels protagonist Dr. Rieux grapples with similar concepts which ultimately leads him to believe, “a dead man has no substance unless one has actually seen him dead.” The only solution, he says, would be to pile up the dead bodies where everyone could see them, and even then a man would have to know each of the dead individuals for the lesson to really hit home that they were, in fact, people.

It's a shame some cannot comprehend the magnitude of the virus and I hope we all collectively continue to practice proper measures.
