Coronavirus at a Glance: Infographic, developed by Johns Hopkins Medicine + CoVID-19 Diary of a (recovering) healthcare professional
1. Coronavirus at a Glance: Infographic has been developed by Johns Hopkins Medicine. When I first started looking for information, there was a lot of text (noise). This page was a clean and quick view to learn about possible symptoms, transmission, and protection.
2. A healthcare professional in Oxford shared his experience (symptoms and recovery) with CoVID-19. This came in handy when a family member, who is 60+ with pre-existing conditions, needed to monitor their health.
In what ways did you change your behaviors as a result of this resource?
1. I felt more informed with this infographic, and also slightly calm. It was also a good way to sort through noise. It helped me get started with the basic information, and then dig deeper for more information.
2. My family member didn't want to go the walk-in or the hospital for unnecessary testing (their GP didn't want that either). While they patiently waited on the phone for a few hours, we started monitoring the symptoms. They didn't match the CoVID trend (phew).
In what ways did you share this information?
I shared both of these with my team members via Slack.
What information do you feel you are missing about COVID-19?
1. Infographics like these – focusing on 'The Best Ways To Protect Yourself' – should be displayed in and outside of stores that remain open.
2. It was good to hear about recovery (and not just about loss of lives).
What populations or personas are not currently being addressed with today’s COVID-19 information?
1. I have not yet seen these infographics in multiple language. Toronto has a diverse population. For many people, English is not the first language. I feel these groups of people aren't well informed about this. We need to help them understand what is different here.
2. I wonder if information like these would be useful to other healthcare professionals – perhaps support workers providing palliative care, or in northern communities where there might limited healthcare services.
