Covid-19 Online Information Resources

There’s a lot of mixed information and mixed reactions on social media and even the news regarding covid-19, the novel coronavirus. So I wanted to share the information from the center of disease control (cdc) and the world health organization (who).

First, don’t panic! We should all take the virus seriously, but most of us I believe are fairly young and healthy. For most of us and most people in general, it’s about helping to not spread the virus mostly to protect more vulnerable people such as the elderly or those with “serious chronic medical conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, or lung disease.”

The cdc and the who lost cough, fever, and shortness of breath as the symptoms. I’d like to note that this does not mean having other symptoms in addition to these necessarily rules out covid-19. Some studies suggest for instance that it can also present with conjunctivitis (pink eye symptoms) and conjunctiva congestion (excessive eye gunk) but it’s less common of a symptom. Most cases seem to present with cough and fever and possible shortness of breath.

Dont panic, don’t buy out all the toilet paper and masks, just follow the cdc guidelines to help minimize your risk of exposure which will help lessen the spread. Hopefully, together we can curtail the spread enough that the virus does not enter our list of seasonally recurring viruses, but this can also help with keeping hospitals from being overwhelmed.

It’s probably best to get your information from these websites which list symptoms, discuss how to prepare and prevent *properly and responsibly*, and discuss what to do in the event you have symptoms:
