  1. We will find out in a month how prevalent this invisible virus actually is. As so many people are not going to keep 6 ft away or wear any sort of mask. Take a couple weeks for it to manifest itself and we’ll see what some of the results are. I say some because their are numbers of people that get sick get over it and never report anything to official results. But the economy must open or we will all be on SNAP and Welfare checks!
