A Quick Guide To Coronavirus Knowledge, Resources and Protection
It’s a mess.
Sold out hand sanitizer, limited surgical masks, and people buying water like it’s the apocalypse.
Some of the media is loving it. Maybe not “loving” it, but they love the attention.
Fear is their business model.
Some journalists even exploit this fact. Twisting the truth to give their story the right oomph it needs.
It’s not just them. It’s how miscommunication flows between us all.
Someone also told me that five kids at a local university tested positive for COVID-19.
That was false.
Misinformation happens, so the closer we can get to the sources, the better.
Everything we’re seeing leaves us all scared. Scared of what’s real. Scared of the worst-case scenario.
Some of you may even be frightened.
Like what Rebecca Mehra Tweeted:
Now, don’t get me wrong; there’s accurate information out there. We must be smart, take precautions, and listen to the experts.
By experts, I don’t mean Crisis News Network, Fox News, The New York Times, etc.
I mean the real experts, which is why I’ve created this resource.
I’m clearly not an expert in virology, pandemics, or anything remotely close to these, nor do I pretend to be, and frankly, nor do I want to be.
My only motive is to make sense of the precise facts, listen to the experts, take action on their advice, and systematically minimize the problem for me, my family, my team, our clients, and every one whom each of us comes into contact with…especially our families.
It’s part of my responsibility as a leader of a team with international partners and clients to help decipher this situation based on expert advice and share resources to what seems to be the truth.
So far, what I gather from all of this that the single biggest problem is to our healthcare system.
