Ron’s Tip of the Day Surviving COVID-19

Welcome to Ron’s Tip of the Day. Throughout the week I will share a tip with you. This is an experiment in microblogging. Let me know how I’m doing. Today I am looking at Surviving COVID-19.

Don’t get caught up in the hype!

Unfortunately the ‘fake news’ or media can’t just report the news, they must also bend it toward their own bias. How often have we heard that Trump said this or Trump said that and ‘offered no proof’? This is a classic attempt to erode support and/or undermine the President.

The truth is that we should pay more attention to what the Federal government says and what your state government says than the television, radio, and printed press say. You will stay saner longer if you do.

An example of this hype is the constant drivel about the ‘cases’. Yes, this is an extremely contagious disease and you should follow commonsense practices as shown at both the national level (.gov) and at your state level. But you need to also remember that the death rate is an extremely low 3.6% of the cases. Compare this to other diseases. Be concerned, but don’t panic.

But what else should we do to survive?

For writers I suggest:

  • Start a new book
  • Focus on research for current/future books
  • Plan ahead
  • Give yourself a treat
  • Relax
  • Get COVID-19 information from the Coronavirus Task Force and your State government.

The virus’ impact changes daily. So trust the government’s wisdom and advice. And pray that it will all end soon.

Tip of the Day : Use this time as an opportunity, be informed, and don’t panic. Most important: pray.
