I recently talked to Dr. Robert Murphy, a professor of medicine and infectious disease at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine, about the surge facing Illinois and much of the country.
And I keep thinking about something he told me:
“I’ve studied pandemics, and they all end,” Murphy said.
“Every one of them ends.
“The question is: How long does it take to end?
“And how many people will die?”
In McHenry County, the total is now 120.
Only six have died since July.
