CORONA VIRUS RESOURCES
Page under construction - I will be adding pertinent information, but so as not to make it a long tapeworm of information,
only the most important things are posted here - I have now added a blog category: CORONA VIRUS
For nothing better to do, since I am in Self-Quarantine since March 10th, I started constructing this page.
Today's date April 1st 2020 - not a April Fools joke - this is serious stuff!
I am trying to gather resources that are trustworthy and serious - you won't find conspiracy theories here.
Since I am in Austria, some of my materials and links will be in German. I recommend installing Google Translate on your device.
Apologies to my English speaking friends - some videos are in German,
but conversely for my German speaking friends, some videos are only found in English.
Michael Osterholm is an internationally recognized expert in infectious disease epidemiology. He is Regents Professor, McKnight Presidential Endowed Chair in Public Health, the director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy (CIDRAP), Distinguished Teaching Professor in the Division of Environmental Health Sciences, School of Public Health, a professor in the Technological Leadership Institute, College of Science and Engineering, and an adjunct professor in the Medical School, all at the University of Minnesota. Look for his book "Deadliest Enemy: Our War Against Deadly Germs"
Note: the above video ▲ is from Spring 2020 and some of the information is not up to recent standards. I leave this up so we can follow the history.

My comment: Corona type viruses had been with us for years already, and they will be in future, including strains of Covid-19 and future mutations. We have to learn to live with that, just as we learned to live with influenza. Lets deal with it without panic and painting a doomsday scenario.

When and how to use masks
To assist health workers and researchers working under challenging conditions to bring this outbreak to a close, The Lancet has created a Coronavirus Resource Centre. This resource brings together new 2019 novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) content from across The Lancet journals as it is published. All of our COVID-19 content is free to access.
About the above ▲ masks were almost impossible to get when I started this page, so I included this resource. I find is better by far than the home-made cloth masks.
Filter masks are now mandatory in Austria to go shopping. Check the details (in German) - but masks may not be easily available. The above video shows how you can make one from a coffee filter.

There are continuously new messages appearing, new information, opinions and such about this theme. Some of it is controversial, some is funny, some I would consider situated in wingnut territory. But I don't force anyone to agree with me - these are my personal opinions and everyone can make up his/her own mind - and this even includes what I had posted above. I am opening a blog under the category of corona where I will post such articles and videos. I might mark some of those as controversial, conspiracy theory or wingnut, but again, this subjective to my own opinion.
You decide for yourself - above all, stay healthy!
Es erscheinen ständig neue Nachrichten, neue Informationen, Meinungen und dergleichen zu diesem Thema. Einige davon sind umstritten, andere sind lustig, andere würde ich als bescheuert betrachten. Aber ich zwinge niemanden, mir zuzustimmen - dies sind meine persönlichen Meinungen und jeder kann sich selbst entscheiden - und dies schließt sogar das ein, was ich oben gepostet habe. Ich eröffne einen Blog unter der Kategorie Corona, in dem ich solche Artikel und Videos veröffentlichen werde. Ich könnte einige davon als kontrovers, Verschwörungstheorie oder bescheuert bezeichnen, aber auch dies ist meiner eigenen Meinung nach subjektiv.
Du entscheidest selbst - vor allem bleibe gesund!
Some of the posts are in English, and some are in German only. I strive to find English or dual language sources wherever possible.
Einige der Beiträge sind auf Englisch, andere nur auf Deutsch. Ich bemühe mich, wo immer möglich, englische oder zweisprachige Quellen zu finden.
