A little over a week ago, I graduated with my Bachelors in GIS from the Ohio State University. My dear friend Bridget achieved the same. We were supposed to celebrate together – senior bar crawl, end of semester confessions on the Oval, and photos together in our caps and gowns. We didn’t get what we wanted and certainly not what we deserved.
In this episode, Bridget and I dive into what life has been like in pandemic – from the big naps and loss of time to the effort of friendship and the joys of cable television. It gets a little weird, but it’s honest.
The past few months and weeks have been rife with trials around the world with the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. The past week in Ohio, we have been home-bound following the governor’s ‘stay at home’ order. This first week has been rough, but I’m thankful to be surrounded (digitally) by dear friends and wise mentors.
In this episode, we discuss an article posted on Medium by Tomas Pueyo, ‘Coronavirus: The Hammer and the Dance’. It’s an overview of the current state of COVID-19 and a summary of what measures should be implemented now in order to provide the world with our best fighting change against the virus. Pueyo presents three strategies: Do Nothing, Mitigation, and Suppression. The author presents a compelling case for Suppression and recommends that readers that are moved to sign a petition to the White House that pressures our leaders to approach COVID-19 with a suppression strategy.
