Welcome to the next C19 update. I find making a commitment to sharing with you what I learn helps me be disciplined in keeping current.
This week I’m focusing on the front-line COVID workers. Most Americans don’t see what they are experiencing; the impact on their work environment and their family lives.
What you will find in this update is
- What is my favorite news source and why? (Emergent data and a word from Bill Gates)
- What is the most inspiring thing I saw someone do for someone else? (The most inspiring thing this week can be from you!)
- What is the funniest COVID video, image or story I saw this week? (Keeping spirits up on the front lines.)
What is my favorite news source and why?
(Emergent data and a word from Bill Gates)
Staying ahead of the curve is VERY difficult! This is really important when allocating precious resources. If you have better ideas, PLEASE share them.
- Data from GitHub which is published in the NYT
- Raw Data from GitHub
- SalesForce is launching a tool to customize your own dashboard
I’m following Bill Gates because, aside from our government, he is one of the most active representative for the U.S. in funding and initiatives. He is breaking his foundation’s activities to focus on into five categories: treatments, vaccines, testing, contact tracing, and policies for opening up.
What is the most inspiring thing I saw someone do for someone else?
The most inspiring thing this week can be from you!
- If you survived the virus, please donate blood and help others do the same.
- If you know someone on the front lines, please read this so you know how to offer comfort and interact in an appropriate manner with workers on the front lines.
- Are glasses fogging up with mask usage? Spit is a stupid solution. Learn solutions to improve this problem.
What is the funniest COVID video, image or story I saw this week?
Keeping spirits up on the front lines.
And to wrap up… the essential you need to know on this article about severe fatigue and trauma and how to cope is GRACE and COMPASSION:
At the essential core of coping and self-care during this time is simply remembering to focus on grace and self-compassion as you navigate this unprecedented time. Take a walk, take a bath, take a nap, take deep breaths, ask for help, help where you can, and know that whatever you are feeling is completely normal, and whatever you need to do to love on and care for you during this time is okay. No guilt, only grace, as we walk this uncharted territory together.
Wishing you well ~ Kimberly
