Mini-Episode: How to Coronavirus
Worried about the Coronavirus? Luckily, Emily has a background in public health and can explain it. This is an episode for people who aren’t at high risk, to talk about why and how they can help make the world safer for people who are at risk. Spoiler warning: Wash your hands. PS: Edited to add when Emily listened to this mini-episode, she realized they didn’t make it crystal clear that it’s not just age but also health issues that make people vulnerable. People of any age can have respiratory issues, diabetes or cardiovascular disease, all three of which are known to increase severity of symptoms if a person gets COVID-19. ****** By Emily: how to survive a long-haul flight — 2020/coronovirus update Emily loves Mrs. Meyer's Acorn Spice Liquid Hand Soap
