COVID-19 Update; 3/14/2020. A Message From Concerned Physicians

Posted by in categories: Coronavirus, COVID-19, Global Pandemic News

Please read the update below. We under­stand that infor­ma­tion com­ing from our gov­ern­ment, the World Health Orga­ni­za­tion, and the Cen­ter for Dis­ease Con­trol have been con­fus­ing or con­tra­dic­tory. Here’s what a group of physi­cians want us to know about COVID-19, what actions we should take to pro­tect our­selves, and what we should be pre­pared to experience.

Why are we writ­ing this? 

Quote from Michael Leavitt on COVID-19
Quote from Mark Levitt on COVID-19

The COVID-19 pan­demic has reached a point where con­tain­ment is no longer pos­si­ble. The COVID-19 threat is real, and rapidly get­ting worse. Many of you are very ner­vous, some are unsure of the valid­ity of the infor­ma­tion you are read­ing. As physi­cian lead­ers, we felt it was impor­tant to craft a resource you can rely on as being sci­en­tif­i­cally accu­rate and one which con­tains as much action­able infor­ma­tion and guid­ance as possible. 

Accu­rate, action­able infor­ma­tion dur­ing an epi­demic can save lives. Physi­cians are on the front line of this epi­demic. Not only are we treat­ing the sick, but we are also cring­ing at the mis­in­for­ma­tion spread through both tra­di­tional broad­cast and social media. Evi­dence mat­ters. Unfor­tu­nately, the evi­dence is often slow, method­i­cal, and bor­ing and has a tough time against clicky head­lines and exag­ger­a­tion. We believe that an accu­rate rep­re­sen­ta­tion of the cur­rent COVID-19 pan­demic fol­lowed by a set of action­able steps you, your loved ones, politi­cians and local offi­cials can uti­lize is of para­mount impor­tance and ulti­mately could save tens of thou­sands of lives.

Covid-19 Disease Tracker

Covid-19 Dis­ease Tracker

We’ve begun mon­i­tor­ing dif­fer­ent sites around the world in an effort to track the coun­tries with cases and the rate at which the infec­tion caused by SARS-CoV-2 is spread­ing. This appears to be one of the best track­ers at this time.
