Does anybody still think the quarantine was an overreaction?

Just finished reading The Week. Two page story at the end about some
Republican followers in Louisiana who followed Trump and Hannity and
thought the whole thing was a hoax. Then a guy comes down with it and is
on a machine to breath. (I recommend that mag - $1 a week if worth it). I
just cannot fathom how strongly political party affiliation leads people to
stupid ideas and myths and superstitions and paranoia. I keep harping on
cognitive errors and this is why. We all are quite intelligent but even we
(even we!!) are not immune to them. bill w
