Halted Time

A text on the perception of time in times of Corona:

“We read the numbers and statistics, but numbers remain numbers, and the curves reveal nothing about the tragedies unfolding behind them even as reports emerge to caution the heedless young that it’s no longer merely the elderly who are succumbing. This unspoken edict preventing us, who are still healthy, from seeing the ill, the dying, and the dead, is part of a strategy to avoid mass panic, to keep our society functioning.”
