How old?

2 people in their 50’s and one in his 40’s. All in good health previously.

Yikes. I’m sorry to hear that OP. I think some people still don’t realize how serious this. Who knows many deaths the actual number is if you account for all the impoverished areas of the world who don’t have hospitals to go run to where they can report numbers to the CDC. Plus take into account the countries not being truthful with their numbers and the total deaths have to be much, much higher than reported.

I can only assume you’re right. In the US well see the truth but unfortunately it’s not looking good right now. A lot of people not “at risk” who think they are fine because they’re healthy or young should know they are still at risk and this thing kills.

I know about 8, either people I know or relatives of friends/family. Some were very old (80s-100) but some were not old at all, 40s/50s.

For those in their 40s any previous medical conditions?

Anyone else at a firm so rooted in the past that you’re embarrassed explaining it to other attorneys? Example: We are 10 months into COVID and my firm still hasn’t decided on/implemented a video meeting platform (Zoom, Teams, etc.). So if I want to have a video meeting I have to ask the other party to use their video services. And it’s not at all a funding issue.

The agency hasn't given me any back up/someone I can team up with to do the job. Is this normal? I'm used to have a partner, a copywriter or another creative working alongside. Keep in mind that I'm mid-level.
