No big deal. Every century or so a new bug goes on a rampage to readjust the human immune system. What make this rampage particularly scary is the awesome number of folks on the planet now which to attack and the fact that dumbass, lying Trump said not to worry, and then did nothing to combat it.

You can’t hide from this stuff. If for whatever reason one’s immune system is run down because of age or just not up to par for whatever reason (damed I’am 80), well….
