Coronavirus in the U.S.: Latest Map and Case Count – The New York Times

This is no time to return to “normal”. COVID-19 is not “99% harmless” like “Dr. Orange” says, but you can try your luck, and in the process infect an innocent bystander that is trying to stay healthy and maybe has bad luck. Why play Russian Roulette with strangers? Isn’t 3 million infected COVID-19 cases enough of a warning sign? Who cares if younger people don’t get seriously ill if you are sharing it with others who might. 

(Este no es el momento de volver a la “normalidad”. COVID-19 no es “99% inofensivo” como “Dr. Naranja “, dice, pero puedes probar suerte y, en el proceso, infectar a un espectador inocente que está tratando de mantenerse saludable y tal vez tenga mala suerte. ¿Por qué jugar a la ruleta rusa con extraños? ¿No son 3 millones de casos infectados de COVID-19 suficientes como señal de advertencia? A quién le importa si las personas más jóvenes no se enferman gravemente si lo comparte con otras personas que podrían hacerlo.)

I love media and communication, as well as digital technology. I write in Spanish and English, fluent in both languages: speak, read, write, comprehend. I was born in New York, but was sent to Puerto Rico at an early age, where I lived until drafted by the U.S. army. Upon returning from an honorable discharge, I found Puerto Rico small and limited at the time. I moved to Boston where I pursued musical studies and later worked as a musician, teacher, and speech-pathologist in New York. I studied music at Berklee College of Music, Boston, MA, and Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology at various New York City colleges, including New York University, New York City, New York. I played professionally in Puerto Rico, prior to entering Berklee College of Music, and after finishing studies there I played in the 80’s bass guitar briefly, with various latin bands, including the Machito Big Band Orchestra in 1982. I was part of their recording that year. Once I saw the transitory nature of music, I studied speech-pathology and worked in that function after teaching middle-school and elementary grades in the New York City Board/Department of Education. In that capacity, I also worked for the New York City Department of Health as an independent contractor providing therapy and evaluations for pre-school and school-age children. I later worked in the high school setting in that capacity before I retired from the Department of Education. I am now retired and with my spare time, I pursue old, and new dreams, as age is a reminder of the evanescence and impermanence of life.
