Companies, educators, politicians need a crash course in public health. PH indicators can be simple to calculate and easy to misrepresent.
The Guardian UK is doing a great job of mixing in narrative with relevant public health stats on COVID-19. A great resource I've come across was through a family member who attended a webinar for medical professionals. If those stats can be boiled down into a crash course on public health for community leaders (politicians, CEOs of companies, social media influencers, etc.), I think the meaning in reported numbers will sink in with the public better and help people understand why this (hopefully temporary) economic fallout is necessary.
In what ways did you change your behaviors as a result of this resource?
According to this webinar, people need to be prepared to self-isolate for months because the viral shedding period is longer than previously reported.
In what ways did you share this information?
Shared with limited people as needed. Waiting for CDC, NY State, NYC and WHO guidance to update.
What information do you feel you are missing about COVID-19?
I am able to stay well informed, but we're all uncertain about what will happen next.
What populations or personas are not currently being addressed with today’s COVID-19 information?
Measures to support healthcare workers who are repeatedly exposed to the virus and their families. Youth who are stuck at home away from school.
