Love or Hate?

Before we go any further, let’s establish three definitions: pandemic, epidemic and endemic.
- Pandemic: occurring over a wide geographic area and affecting an exceptionally high proportion of the population
- Epidemic: affecting or tending to affect a disproportionately large number of individuals within a population, community, or region at the same time
- Endemic: belonging or native to a particular people or country
Of course, the coronavirus has been labeled as a pandemic, and the world is going stir crazy.
