I personally do well when I can get a real feel for how something works, in a deep dive. This one has tons of information and was still a managable piece for me to commit some time to read.

Upload or share a link to this resource/message/source of information to share it with others.

Did this resource motivate you to change your behaviors?

  • Yes

In what ways did you change your behaviors as a result of this resource?

I had already been social distancing, but this deep dive really helped me understand how it spreads and works more than anything else had. It also didn't personally trigger any anxiety, as it was so informational and data driven. The timeline of events in Hubei really spoke to me as a clear way to show what actually happened vs. what was "visible" or seemed to be happening, and the delay. Or why taking 2 weeks to commit to something before seeing outcomes or impact is SO important.
