In this episode (and more thoroughly in the show notes), Tricia shares a compilation of information, ideas, and resources about the COVID-19 virus. PLEASE SHARE YOUR THOUGHTS, IDEAS, AND RESOURCES TO BE ADDED TO THE SHOW NOTES!!! This will be an ongoing project and database as this situation evolves. Let’s support each other <3
Here’s another growing pandemic resource list.
What is COVID-19?
COVID-19 is a type of Coronavirus that is new to humans. Because humans have not interacted with this particular virus before, treatments are still being developed. See Dr. David Ho’s work for more information about the treatments being developed.
Because COVID-19 attacks the lungs, symptoms include fever, cough, and shortness of breath.
COVID-19 lives in surfaces for various lengths of time.
Many people are currently choosing to stay isolated at home to Flatten the Curve. This means that the healthcare system will not be overwhelmed because less people will be infected all at once.
PLEASE DO NOT MAKE SOCIAL DISTANCING OR QUARANTINE SCARY!!! People are less likely to seek medical attention if they fear being quarantined. Support each other and don’t stigmatize <3
Older adults and people with existing medical conditions are more susceptible to the negative effects of COVID-19.
What can we do?
Wash your phone, too!
Check out the MT Ed. webinar on telehealth.
By staying at home, you will be assisting with Flattening the Curve.
