I'm a doctor, and if you think this is just another post about social distancing and how to wash your hands—vitally important as they are—you are wrong. Read on, and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Sure Signs You've Already Had Coronavirus.

I'm sure I speak for us all when I say we want this to be over. 

America is faring terribly in the pandemic. The number of new cases reported every day continues to climb, as outbreaks tear through Florida, Arizona, Texas and California, among others. In the past few days, for the first time since the start of the pandemic, more than 60,000 new cases have been diagnosed per day. There have been 3.22 million cases all told in the U.S. and 136,000 deaths. It's clear the virus is far from being under control.

We've all witnessed the devastation it has caused. For those who become infected, there is suffering, and sometimes death, but for the population as a whole, the social and economic effects have led to loneliness, isolation, job losses, financial ruin, and taken their toll on family life and relationships. Our lives have been changed in a way we could never have imagined.
