With fall approaching, the devastation from COVID-19 cannot be understated. In the United States, the case total has topped 6 million; the number of deaths will soon pass 200,000, not to mention the attendant disruption of children’s’ education and the concurrent economic havoc.
This is all a result of a microscopic coronavirus, the agent responsible for COVID-19. Everywhere, the best minds in medicine, epidemiology, public health and virology work assiduously to understand the COVID-19 coronavirus — with tremendous advances. But as any good scientist readily acknowledges, the more we learn, the less we know, because knowledge makes the subject infinitely more complex.
