LAST WEEK, I referred to COVID-19 as a virus that has destroyed our ability to trust each other.
Its devastating health impacts have made it the fourth-leading cause of death in the world since the beginning of 2020. Those who don’t get the virus, however, still seem to be infected with a nagging sense of suspicion.
And a few no longer trust medical professionals who have sworn an oath to help and do no harm.
Perhaps saddest of all, it seems difficult for many of us to trust each other.
COVID-19 has split up friendships and families along lines drawn based on how we believe we — both authorities and average folks — should be reacting to it.
