there is a real, on-the-ground issue with our hospital systems being overloaded

We reached that point in my region. A guy died last week of a (normaly) non-fatal car crash because there was no bed left in the ER to take care of him.
Do not make the same mistake than we did (in France) of underestimating the impact of the virus, in our full arrogance of thinking we are much "better" than Italians or Chinese in facing the crisis.
Honestly, I was fooled by the media, but not in the way you think : since they keep insisting on making a non-stop-4-week-top-story out of every single event that would not have been noticed by anybody in usual times, and this in increasing rates in the last decade, it has become hard to believe anything that is spread by the news. I underestimated the danger of the virus, and I should have stayed at home even earlier. You are always smarter after it happened, once you know all the real facts.
