“What is a confirmed case of COVID-19?” we asked on May 15, 2020, in a ditty we called, Should You Get Tested For COVID-19?
Back then, it sounded like a really stupid question.
I was even told so by someone who’d read a lot of newspapers that day.
(“That’s a stupid question,” he said.)
Undeterred, I posed the question — “What exactly is a confirmed case?” — to a neighbor, too.
It was as if I asked him what types of potatoes grew on planet Venus in 1993.
