In this article of The Atlantic, they bullet some things you can do to help yourself and others to feel less isolated and bored during these quarantine times. What I liked most about it is that it gives a straightforward overview of strategies that you can apply. In these times where my head is already busy adjusting to a new daily routine and consuming way too much media, this article was refreshing and an easy reminder on how to connect with others and yourself. Read the article here.

What information do you feel you are missing about COVID-19?

I live in the EU and each country has an own approach, it scares me not to see unity in fighting something that is affecting everyone. The feeling that each country is just "reinventing their own wheel" just leaves me hoping that I live in the right country, hoping they are doing it "right" in my country. 

What populations or personas are not currently being addressed with today’s COVID-19 information?

I have the feeling that the 60+ generation is following and forwarding a lot of fake information, this might mean that they don't know what trustworthy sources are of information?

Marketeer going CX/UX Designer
