Surviving the Coronavirus is a Blessing … and Should be Exploited

Surviving the Coronavirus is a Blessing … and Should be Exploited

Everything in life can be viewed as good news or bad news.  That is the essence of our great political divide.  It all depends on how you look at it – and how you choose to spin it.

The bad news is that the Coronavirus is highly infectious – and can spread quacking among the populace.  The good news is that 80 percent of those who contract the disease will get mild reactions.  They will not need medical intervention – and many may have it and never even know.

Another good news is that all those folks who survive the virus will be immune in the future – at least that is what the medical authorities are currently telling us.  In fact, getting the disease is like getting a vaccination.

Yes, it is bad that New York has so many cases – more than any other city or state in America.  More than most of the nations on earth.  In fact, only six nations have more cases than in New York City.  And yes, a lot of New Yorkers will succumb to the disease.  But in a few months, New York City will have the greatest number of people with permanent immunity to the disease.  They will never get it again and they will never spread again – if, of course, the medical professionals are correct.

This means while the rest of us are hunkering down, those who have recovered will be out and about.  And they should be.  Not only should they be going back to work wherever possible, but they should be organized into a corps of volunteers.  They can be employed by the companies that can make all those masks, rubber gloves and ventilators.  They can start to reopen some of those closed businesses.  They can work in hospitals and senior care facilities.

There used to be hospital volunteers who brought books, newspapers and candy to patients.  We called them “candy stripers.”  Folks with immunity could be trained and recruited to bring medications, take blood pressures and other tasks – insulating the more vulnerable – non-immune – nurses and doctors from the potential of catching the virus.

Imagine the peace of mind all those who have survived the Coronavirus have as they re-enter the world.  They can touch doorknobs, hug their children, shake hands and gather on the beach without fear.  In fact, if I could be assured that I would not die – or even have one of the nasty serious cases – I would almost welcome a few days feeling “under the weather,” as we say.

In a few weeks, New York – for one – should be prepared to engage the recovered in the fight against the medical, economic and social impact of the Coronavirus.

So, there ‘tis.
