On Saturday, April 4, I participated in a two plus hour current update webinar by Leslie S.T. Fang MD PhD on the COVID-19 pandemic. Dr. Fang maintains an active international practice in Internal Medicine and Nephrology and is a leading teacher on the faculty at Harvard Medical School. The following is a summary of Dr. Fang’s webinar and what is currently known.
Perhaps you have a little extra time on your hands now that you’re self-isolating. Could be a great opportunity to convene your book club. Or maybe you’re missing the regular gym workouts you’ve relied on to alleviate stress. You’ve heard a lot of your friends are headed to a popular walking trail. Sounds like a fun idea. After all, only older people are at a big risk for coronavirus, right? Not so. An analysis of data reported by 19 states shows that Americans of all ages seem to be equally susceptible to a coronavirus infection.
Change is not coming! It is here! And it is world-wide. And it is right next door.
And we are calling it “The New Normal.”
However, I’m not going to write about the Coronavirus, or Covid-19. Information can be found in any newspaper, magazine, news program, or the Internet. In fact, we are being overwhelmed by information.
I’m writing to you today…about how we can how you…I…can thrive in it. And it is comes…from HOW YOU THINK!
