As of this morning, Italy has now witnessed over 74,000 cases of Coronavirus and more than 7,500 Deaths as a result. To put that in perspective for Americans that may be minimizing the impact of this pandemic and possibly believe that this is just another flu, consider this:
you turned on Fox News today and they announced that EVERY SINGLE PLAYER of the: National Football League; Major League Baseball; National Basketball Association; and National Hockey League, had passed away since the Super Bowl on February 2nd, 2020?
In addition to that, EVERY SINGLE COLLEGE FOOTBALL PLAYER of the SEC and BIG10 had also passed.
Not to mention, the: Head Coach; Assistant Coach; GM; Owner; Mascot; and even #1 Fan, of each of those 151 Teams have also died in less than two months, would that be a point of concern?
So, to put this all in perspective, if the above scenario played out, the 6,059 dead would still fall short of what the Italians are currently dealing with as we speak.
My hope here is not to instill fear or loss of hope, but instead... awareness. Demand that your local Representatives, Mayors, Governors, Senators, and even President, take this seriously and give Human Lives greater priority than Corporate Profits.
Pray for those in mourning all over the World who are dealing with the results of this pandemic, as well as the brave and hardworking: Doctors, Nurses and Scientists; who are on the front lines of Hospitals and Laboratories everywhere, attempting to care for and treat those infected or dying, while striving to remain healthy themselves.
