Thursday/ people, mostly – not surfaces

Here in the USA, the CDC now advises that the virus ‘does not spread easily’ from contaminated surfaces or animals. Avoiding humans is the most important thing, and especially sharing enclosed spaces with them.

The pressure is mounting on everyone to wear masks ⁠— even outdoors⁠— it seems to me.

With all the States here now starting to reopen (tentatively, and with restrictions), I think it’s a legitimate concern that people will let their guard down, and that there will be a second wave in some States and cities later in the year.

Who knows, though: the miracle of an effective and widely available vaccine may appear by the end of the year.
