In addition to these being real people, as has already been pointed out, the numbers are a chance to reflect on our previous thinking. Many opined that this was no worse than the flu, just for example. Obviously, that was wrong. Others said we should copy Sweden. Wrong again. Folks who made these predictions should swallow their pride and remember this the next time that are certain of something.

Many are now saying we should reopen immediately. We will know in a couple of months whether this was a good idea in certain geographies.

The optimists were wrong last time, but let's hope they're right this time.
