Hi, I'm Dr. Bob Arnot. A physician who's been working on the front lines of epidemics for decades from Ebola in Uganda to cholera during the Rwandan genocide both as a humanitarian and as a network news correspondent.
Whenever my patients are faced with bad news, they find that knowledge is the greatest defense against fear and anxiety. The more they know, the more confident and empowered they become. You probably read through a blizzard of news stories on COVID-19, with some of the best medical reporting of all time. But some of the most frightening news many of us have ever encountered. And with so much of it, what does it all mean and how important is it? In this ongoing series on the coronavirus we'll look at all the fundamental concepts that are important to know so you can better follow the news. This is to protect yourself and your family and help patients and our hospitals if you're in healthcare.
I'm reporting this from the most reliable sources such as the journal Science, Nature, Lancet, and The New England Journal of Medicine as well as medical experts around the globe and at the White House press conferences. I want to thank Jack Henry for his tremendous insights and help in preparing this series. You're hearing lots of news from many different sources in a vastly different qualities with this incredibly fast news cycle. This is not meant to compete with that breaking news. Rather, this continuing series is an attempt to place all of the news into context to give you a big picture and a deep understanding of the pandemic and what it means to you, your family, and your career.
