Sad for these Covid-19 related deaths. Consider that in Oregon every day 22 people die of cancer, 19 people die of heart disease, 5 people die of respiratory disease, 5 people die in accidents, 5 people die of strokes, 5 people die of Alzheimer, 3 people die of diabetes, 2 people die of flu/pneumonia, and 24 unborn children are killed. So, Covid-19 related deaths are just part of the tragedy in life that is normal.
