Just about this time last year I was eyeballing the initial reports about a weird flu/pneumonia in China and feeling uneasy about them. It was Jan. 21 when I first mentioned it on the blog, because we’d just had our first official case in the US. I distinctly remember reading about it just before New Year’s, though, because I remember thinking “infectious disease + Trump = definitely super bad news,” because, I mean. You didn’t have to be a genius to know that.
It’s been about a year since I first started hearing about the coronavirus in the news.
