Hello my fellow bloggers! I wanted to provide you with the link that the president of our company sent out to all employees this past week allowing us to follow the data coming in on the COVID-19 cases being reported to Johns Hopkins University of Medicine. This link gives you a perspective of what is happening across the globe as more people are being tested and results are coming back. You can zoom into the map and click on your area to get more in-depth information. I know this data is not time accurate as it has not updated the current numbers in Florida as of the time that of this posting. Still, they are doing a great job at inputting the data as quickly as they can.
I found that I would rather look at this map than listen to the same dreary news on the national and international news outlets. It gives me a sense of calm and allows me to be informed at the same time. If I want to to know more than what this map offers, then I will go turn on my television and watch CNN. The images were screenshot at the same time so there is a small lag with what may be reported locally. I have bookmarked both of these sites to my favorites.
I hope you find this informative and it helps you understand the seriousness of what our world faces in the weeks and months to come. There is an outpouring of goodwill all over the planet. Let’s stay positive in this time of crisis and remember to love and as Ellen Degeneres says after every show, “be kind to one another” no matter what happens. It’s just a matter of time before we know someone close to us who is dealing with this terrible virus. If you or someone you know has been confirmed positive, my prayers go out to you and your loved ones that you survive this and are able to make a full recovery. Take care people! Lots of love!
