We Are So F%$#ed

I have occasionally used movie metaphores to describe, specifically The Andromeda Strain, to describe Covid 19, because both diseases attacked the linings of the blood vessels and the central nervous system.

I'm concerned, terrified actually, that I got the wrong movie.

This may instead be the 1971 version of The Omega Man, where those who had the disease but were not killed by it were transformed into insane savage mutants.

I've seen this on my daily commutes, and in a myriad of small ways throughout society.

The loss of empathy, the loss of impulse control, etc. is remarkable, and it makes it that much more difficult to take effective measures against the disease.

This will not end well.
