Confusion About Where To Obtain Good Information On The New Coronavirus

   Many Americans are confused about where to get good, reliable information about SARS-CoV-2, the new coronavirus.  I don’t blame you. With so many organizations as well as different branches and levels of government involved, it’s hard to know where to turn.
   Another issue complicating the situation is that Donald Trump’s comments and actions with regards to SARS-CoV-2 seem to be all over the place. He has made numerous incorrect statements and has contradicted other government officials on multiple occasions.
   So, where do we turn?
   Well, speaking for myself, I’m looking at multiple sources that include the CDC (Centers For Disease Control and Prevention), WHO (World Health Organization), State Health Departments, reputable medical sites (such as from Johns Hopkins Medicine), plus other state and local sources.
   Remember to stay calm. Educate yourself on the situation and learn about what appropriate measures to take.
   Stay home if you are sick with a potential respiratory infection. Wash your hands thoroughly and more frequently. Cough into your upper arm/shoulder area (not into your hands). If needed, call your doctor or the hospital, especially if you are getting a more severe infection. These are just a few basic things. Take a little time to research the situation yourself (using good sources) for more information.
   And above all, don’t panic!
   We will get through this!
