Panicdemic

697B1C34-990C-4DC3-8456-089C36EDCE31“I sought the Lord, and he answered me and delivered me from all my fears.”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭34:4‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Never have I seen such fear and panic as we now have. While I understand the potential consequences of the coronavirus, I do not believe we are being instructed with honest information based on known facts. So our standard medical masks don’t help prevent the spread of this respiratory disease, but washing our hands does? I suspect it has more to do with costs and supply of masks. I totally understand and agree with hand washing, but I believe masks, though not perfect, can potentially help as well. Isolation imposed reactively will do little to prevent spread, in my opinion. We need some common sense imposed. I don’t witness much, if any, especially with the hoarding of toilet paper. I pray that this virus will awaken all the world to how much we need God.

Coronavirus goes Viral

Obviously we have a new viral illness that has spread worldwide and brought many deaths. Trying to understand the threat, even as a physician, is difficult. No one knows what the ultimate consequences will be as it runs its course, but the deluge of information has invoked panic all over the world. Certainly coronavirus is a terrible threat, and precautionary measures must be taken, but there are so many illnesses threatening our world—mental illness, substance addiction, etc. There is Hope and we must keep our faith in Him.
