Since February 21,2020, the country has been devastated by Coronavirus or Covid-19 virus. A hallmark of COVID-19 has been its ruthlessness against the elderly and those with existing health conditions. It doesn’t target them, but it’s more likely to take down the weak than people with stronger immune systems. I believe most people know someone who has gotten the virus or worse yet passed away from the virus. I know at least 18 people who got the dreaded virus. Many employers have shut down their businesses, some are able to work from home but some people are just without work. Hopefully, PPP 2 can help business owners keep their business afloat and moving forward. Everyone needs help. Vaccines are on the way but it may take another six to eight months unless there is a major improvement in distribution. The Biden administration will bring new focus and ideas.
