COVID-19 is the third highest cause of death in the United States from February to October of 2020. One of the problems we have is how people are viewing these deaths, rather than viewing them as an “event” caused death like 9/11 people are viewing as a disease caused death, like heart disease, cancer, and strokes. The reason why this matters is that some people who view these deaths as similar to other diseases are more willing to view the 200K+ deaths as acceptable, but what they are not taking in to account is that all of the other diseases on the list have known preventative measures, treatments, and expected impacts, whereas we have none of these for COVID-19.

Google Fit is an obvious candidate for Assistant shortcuts. I use the Goodnight routine and I want it to automatically record when I go to bed. At the least I should be able to tell Assistant that I went to bed at X and woke up at Y.
