COVID-19 risk factors

A walk on the thoughtful “wild side” of why old-school epidemiology has over-promised and under-delivered, discovering that population density is more than how tightly we are packed, an alternative hypothesis for how sleep refreshes our bodies and spirits, and an update on a maligned energy source, fusion.  
As we move towards social mingling, the official mantra is the three T’s, testing, track, and tracing.

While the process of track and trace remains under development, testing is increasing and is frequently now a daily metric by government officials.
