Since nothing I say seems to have any impact (and honestly, I am not a medical authority, just someone who happens to be well-read in epidemiology and virology), I'll just encourage you to watch this: Dr. John Campbell, Friday 27 March Update: "Our health depends on everyone else."

Make your own decisions but realize that those decisions impact people beyond yourself.
