CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) has hit America and the rest of the world hard. We’re in a full pandemic and things are changing quickly. Coronavirus has hit my hometown, and it’s apparent we need to hunker down and settle into a ‘new normal’ for a while.
Times are so uncertain, and along with you, I’m processing the reality that we really don’t know how bad Coronavirus is going to get. I suspect it will become far worse the next couple of weeks… and that’s not because I am living in fear, that’s because I’m looking at data from other countries and doing the math.
I’m not a conspiracy theorist (I like to think of myself as a realist), and I have a dear friend on the front lines at one of the busiest hospitals in Chicago. We’ll call her Dr. Fabulous. We’ve been in constant contact… partly because she makes me laugh and she’s one of my favorite humans, and partly because I KNOW Dr. Fabulous is one of the smartest people on the planet and she’ll give me the real deal.
Here’s what Dr. Fabulous, someone who is living with Covid-19 in real-time, shared with me from the front lines:
So that’s the scoop from the front lines. If you think this “virus thing” is business as usual, it’s not. This pandemic is poised to affect our most vulnerable populations. You need to start social distancing today. Like, right now.
