A story in the Daily Mail published a new stunning graph which shows the projected damage that COVID-19 will likely inflict upon Iowa.

According to the data presented on the website Covid19HealthData.org the people in the state of Iowa appear to be in a better position than those in major cities, simply because of the lack of heavy population.

It still looks pretty grim, but it's not too late to slow the spread.

Self-isolation is something we all must practice, as our current behaviors today can impact just how hard we get hit.

That's why we're hearing so much right now about the need to "shelter in place" which simply means not going out and by staying home. We need to do our best to avoid crowds, and isolate if we're sick.

The choice is yours but it's a sacrifice I'm willing to make to help slow the spread and flatten the curve.
