Community on COVID-19

What People Are Saying

“I know what it’s like to lose good friends, never knowing what’s going to happen next. I must say with my experiences I am at peace with this.

I would say to those who have nightmares about the virus you should follow the above advice it only makes sense. In the absence of leadership, this is supposed to be a country that is known to be a leader and has been a leader for hundreds of years.

My thoughts and hopes have been put on hold, but I’m not going to throw in the towel not yet….”

“I stay in my apartment and continue to study medical literature from my personal medical library and also from on the internet at medical websites, periodicals, etc. This whole coronavirus COVID-19 thing has at least temporarily switched me from my usual medical specialty fields of cardiology and pulmonary science to virology, respiratory therapy and infectious diseases. So, I’m doing a whole lot of really very interesting reading and studying these days, to say the very least here!”
