Colorado and the nation face the coronavirus paradox
Updated: Apr 25, 2020
The COVID-19 coronavirus strain should rightfully terrify Colorado, and the globe at large, yet we cannot be panicked by it. That is the fundamental paradox faced by our state, country and global community right now.
While panic-hoarding toilet paper may be humorous, it is much less funny when it denies hospitals and clinics necessary health care equipment such as masks and gowns.
Right now level-headed leadership, such as that demonstrated by Gov. Jared Polis, may be our greatest asset to combat that dilemma.
Not only have Polis and other leaders in Colorado taken critical steps to address the pandemic, but their calm demeanor in doing so helps protect us from the indirect and significant consequences a full-blown panic could cause.
