Dept. of Health, Online Version


I'll try to write a post that isn't birthday or health related later tonight, but right now, I want to link to this Google document that I learned of from one of my journalist colleagues. I read through it, and it's got a lot of good advice, in plain English. Knowing most of my f'list, you're probably already up on accurate information about both this particular novel coronavirus and the illness it causes, but perhaps if you know people who'd like to read something that isn't full of medicalese or political asides, this link could come in handy, as could this link to World Health Organization information. 

I know I've bounced around in my head about this virus, and whether it's as dangerous as, say, SARS, MERS or our regular annual menus of influenza viruses.
