Jose Mier Takes a Look Back
As of this composing one year ago we had 133 cases of the corona infection in California. Sun Valley, naturally belongs to greater Los Angeles and with our tens of millions of citizens the concern about the spread of the infection is genuine.
We know that people who have contracted the infection can stay asymptomatic while still being contagious so it’s reasonable to take precautions like washing hands frequently and not touching your face.
California’s governor Gavin Newsom has actually declared a state of emergency situation concerning the virus however total in the United States we have not seen the variety of infections that other countries have.
One worry is that the homeless population which has grown in the previous couple of years here in Los Angeles, may be reproducing ground for the virus. That doesn’t suggest we aren’t impacted by this, but Sun Valley is less affected by this pattern than other areas in and around L.A.
Organizations and venues places the country have actually cancelling events occasions the wake of the virus infection the annual SXSW in Texas and– closer to home– the BPN Paribas Tennis Tournament competition Palm Desert.
One requirement only make a shopping trip to Costco to see the result fear of the infection is having on our local population. By 11 am all cases of bottled water at our Burbank Costco were gone. Very same for hand santizer and bathroom tissue. It would appear to be an intriguing case study in worry and how it can overtake a society. The operate on supplies comes regardless of warnings from health care professionals that the infection’ casualty rate is only someplace around 3 percent (perhaps lower) and that much of those who have actually died had existing illness exacerbated by the infection.

What does this mean for us in Sun Valley? I would recommend common sense, caution and knowledge. Yes, all of us must take the actions essential to prevent getting sick (see CA Dept. of Public Health website), but these are the same directions given to us every influenza season. Wash hands, don’t touch face, etc. That’s excellent recommendations no matter what the disease however we should also be going about our daily lives and continue to pursue company as usual. The alternative– to throw our hands up in despair– isn’t going to get us anywhere. When it comes to me, you can bet Jose Mier is going to continue living and working as usual in Sun Valley.
