The End of Coronavirus

Coronavirus will end soon, and it will be because of you. You have the power to change how this epidemic advances and the ability to protect the ones you love. It is easy, and I will show you how to do it.

Historical events are happening. We began to admire life with a different lens because of the quarantine.

You got away from the static in our days.

You are home with our beloved ones; we are free to follow certain interests, spend time with them, and chat without worrying about the traffic of the city, the chaos of the multitude.

We learned how to communicate without being physically present and to value the things that really matter.

Heads or Tails

There is a poetic balance in life, as not everything is well. With every fortune, a negative awaits and Coronavirus has shown us something that aches, a deadlier disease, an issue older than COVID. A negative that lurks in every corner, something no one can escape from:

Fake news.

The reason for this is that we live in a connected world. We can get in touch in an instant, find a job around the globe, and have the answers to existential questions at the tip of our fingers, and just as easy, deception can find us.

Information flows like the Rhine River, deep, powerful, and dangerous. The difference being that information knows no limits, barriers, or countries, and it reaches into the most desolated places on earth.

Coronavirus Information

We are regularly exposed to articles from influential outlets that exaggerate, undermine, or fake information to acquire popularity.

One example of this is when The Washington Times claimed that the COVID-19 was created in the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Thankfully other media like The Financial Times cited an expert to correct this, Trevor Bedford, a leading Corona researcher, claimed that:

“There is no evidence whatsoever of genetic engineering that we can find,” he said at the American Association for the Advancement of Science meeting in Seattle. “The evidence we have is that the mutations [in the virus] are completely consistent with natural evolution.”

This is not only reduced to newspapers. Even doctors have been used to incite terror. A “scientific study” conducted by Hong Kong medics claimed that:

“Some people who recover from the coronavirus might be left with ’20 to 30%’ less lung function, and gasping for breath when they walk quickly.”

The report from Business Insider gives a glimpse of how the study proceeded but not everyone reads past titles. The sample was made up of only 12 people, a minuscule sample that deemed the study a preliminary, but only the scientific community knows this.

Corona "Experts"

There are people that spread misinformation based on “expert opinions” through chains to achieve popularity; as reported by the BBC, drinking water every 15 minutes to prevent infections is a myth as explained by Oxford professor Trudie Lang:

“No biological mechanism” that would support the idea that you can just wash a respiratory virus down into your stomach and kill it.

Then there are the celebrities that fight to stay relevant like Kendall Jenner. 

She did not attend college but yet posted “informative” content in their social media related to the outbreak.

A graph that undermined the issue by claiming that only a small portion of people are at risk. 

She did not go unnoticed; as reported by the Huffington Post, the Italian influencer Chiara Ferragni, called her out, Chiara knows how the outbreak in Italy develop, and how important are the safety precautions. 

Finally, we have the conspiracy theorist that indulge in the culture of fear to discredit nations, organizations, and people leading to discrimination and racism. As reported by ABC:

“Federal law enforcement is warning of an increase in hate crimes against Asian Americans as the coronavirus crisis continues to grow, according to a new FBI analysis obtained by ABC News.”

There is much disinformation, negligence, and evil in the world, but not all hope is lost. There is something simple you can do to protect the people you love.

The Light at The End of The Pandemic

We will stay safe, not thanks to a miracle pill or some chemical that has not been studied.

The only way to do it is by sharing official content, the one created by organizations dedicated to health like the CDC or WHO.

Take news outlets with a pinch of skepticism, and verify the information you read. Do not trust famous people or politicians that have no relevant background studies.

Some have corrected their mistakes and apologized, but there is no denying that the damage has already been done.

Do not spread despair, but do not undermine what we are all living. These are strange times, that is true, and that is why it will come to an end soon, but the issue of fake news will remain.

Actively search for the truth.
Do not spread lies. 

For now, our responsibility lies in documenting ourselves. Taking the right precautions and taking care of the most vulnerable population, your family, your friends, and you depend on being informed to take the appropriate measures.
