Epilogue: Yes, it really was serious

No Time to Die character poster

Once upon a time, today, April 2, was supposed to be the start of regular showings of No Time to Die in the U.K.

Not quite a month ago, the release of the 25th James Bond movie was pushed back to November because of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

For some time thereafter, there were complaints.

It’s just the flu. It wasn’t. The death rate from seasonal flu is about 0.1 percent. The death rate from COVID-19 is higher.

It’s only the old and the sick who are at risk. They may be the most at risk, but COVID-19 has taken the lives of people of various ages. Click HERE, HERE, and HERE for examples.

I could go on. Regardless, there are now more than 1 million confirmed cases globally and more than 50,000 deaths as of 5 p.m., New York time, according to The Washington Post. We won’t know the final figures for some time.

But, yes, COVID-19 was always a big deal. It was always bigger than the release of No Time to Die.

  1. For all those who made the tough and unpopular decisions in the moment, are to be celebrated. For lack of trying those responses more lives could’ve been lost.

  2. Hello, yes things have certainly turned into a nightmare for many. I was thinking about a week before the postponement of NTTD that would I even go see it? If I go would I go by myself? Take the kids? Then it all came to a halt , pretty much a domino effect from that point. The spread started moving across the states. I’m 51 no underlying conditions, fit healthy all around. I had a very thorough physical in early February(preventive maintenance) but I’m still concerned this virus could take me out. That being said I need to do what’s best for my family and to keep conscience of social distancing to protect others. Love your site! Please stay safe!!!! God bless . Sincerely- Jeff Phillips 😁
