Is the media keeping us informed or creating mass panic? Every hour there is a discovery or latest update strategically flashing on our screens. When the news that cases of the novel coronavirus were verified in over 40 states, pandemonium broke out. Americans all over the nation jumped into a frenzy emptying supermarkets nationwide. This hysteria left many individuals without toiletries, food or water. Fear is a powerful tool and marketing tactic used by industries worldwide to sell. Do not fall victim to these tactics! Panicking will only make our situation worse and cause mass hysteria. Yes, the health risks posed by this virus have the potential of being severe for our community, but we must remain calm. By practicing social distancing and staying informed, we can reduce the spread of the virus. Through excellent hygiene and preventative care, we can fight the spread of this virus. Our community is strong, and our nation has the best medical teams in the world. Stay away from constant updates of the virus and continue cultivating a healthy senior lifestyle!
Readers, if you have a fever, cough, and difficulty breathing, call your nearest medical facility and seek care right away. If you have an underlying condition like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, or respiratory conditions, stay away from crowded areas or places. These guidelines were provided by both the World Health Organization and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. There is no need to panic but stay informed.
