The death rates are due to all things, for sure, you are right about that, and it might look like other things are being neglected.
It just took the sudden slam of coronavirus to push death rates beyond what folk were accepting.
Now, we have their ear, something is actually being done about coronavirus.
We need to keep at it, to not let it go, until the problem really is fixed.
After that, it will be up to us to make sure something is done about the other things too.
Does that make more sense to you?
