    So many want to focus on how many have DIED from complications related to COVID19. And a few will now MENTION how many survived....I wish more would mention how many are remaining HOSPITALIZED. SURE IN COMPARISON TO HOW MANY HAVE TESTED POSITIVE THE AMOUNT OF DEATHS SEEMS RELATIVELY LOW WHEN COMPARED TO OUR TOTAL POPULATION. But think about how many remain in the hospital day after day which not only rocks up a medical bill but depletes our supplies. Which continues to place medical staff more at risk. Risk of contracting it themselves, risk of bringing it home to loved ones. if more people would just listen and take it serious and actually shelter in place some people's loved ones may you live to see and spend the next holiday with them. But it disgusts me to even think about how many will break the advice that we have been given to stay home just to go out and celebrate Easter this weekend. It's selfish
