Feeling overwhelmed with all the news, and having trouble sorting the real from the hysteria? I’m here to help.
There is so much about the current situation we just don’t know. The human experience with this virus is brand new — even if it feels like we’ve been stuck with it forever. It’s going to take longer than anyone is comfortable with to get a real handle on the disease.
Like so many people, I’m spending an inordinate amount of time glued to my computer reading up on the pandemic.
There are a lot of reports coming out fast and furious with preliminary information. Some of them are good, many of them are bad.
Social media encourages our worst tendencies to share articles that confirm what we already believe, a very real phenomenon known as confirmation bias.
I’m reading these reports both as a doctor and as a veteran newspaper reporter (retired, sort of.) My job in both cases is to identify the most accurate and actionable information and share it with you.
I’ve started curating the best of these, and am sending my favorites weekly to folks on my VIP list.
