To the Editor:
I read the COVID-19 update with great interest today. I am trying to grasp just what the risk really is here in The Villages.
I do not know anyone who has tested positive or gotten ill so I am wondering, what are the odds? Total cases reported to date in The Villages portion of the tri-county area were 129. If we assume that there are about 130,000 residents in The Villages then the percentage of cases is .01 or one one-hundredth of one percent, assuming my math is correct. One one-hundredth of one percent is a one in 10,000 chance of getting tested positive. If we are all smart, don’t sneeze on one another and wash hands regularly and try to maintain a safe distance – can’t we go on with life? My two cents.
