Dr Fauci and other epidemiologists see everything through the prism of epidemiology. This is natural. But we must listen to their advice and make up our own minds based on all factors, not just epidemiology.

It’s our job, our duty, to take the cost into consideration, then make our own, informed decision.


The figure is a timeline showing the weekly number of opioid overdose deaths that occurred in Cook County, Illinois, during January 1, 2018–October 6, 2020.
