Disappointing news-just as the numbers of new COVID-19 cases have been going down, there are reports of the number of new cases rising. (https://www.pennlive.com/news/2021/03/pa-reports-4667-new-covid-19-infections-the-most-in-more-than-a-month.html) The vaccines are rolling out, but there are problems with getting the doses to the clinic, and people from out of state getting their shots ahead of residents.
We’ve made great progress in fighting the effects of the pandemic, but we need to do better. We must hold our elected officials accountable for the secure delivery of doses to clinics, hospitals, and pharmacies, and give our support for those organizations doing the work, like the Black Doctors COVID-19 Consortium. Plus we do our own little bit, like washing our hands, putting the mask on, checking in on our neighbors, and social distancing.
It’s not much different from wartime, in that we must work together to attain victory over this unseen but deadly enemy. The sooner and more often we do this, the sooner the pandemic will end. Come on, Americans, we can do this!
