Let’s Respond, Not React, To The Coronavirus Scare

Ettie RutherfordThe world, at large, is now experiencing the Coronavirus pandemic: an enemy that is unknown, relentless and life threatening.

How can we adequately challenge this situation that has caught the world population off-guard, in so many different ways?

The reality is, that the response has been varied. Some stakeholders are unprepared, some are in denial, some are unresponsive and others are confused.

Life must go on, so it is important that we:
1. Use the World Health Organization (WHO) as the most reliable source of information.
2. Demand that those in authority focus on skills that will exhibit organized leadership, sound decision-making and easily understood communication.
3. Demand clarification of specifics, such as “social-distancing”, “self-isolation”, “improving the immune system” etc.
4. Check unclear information from insurance companies, places of employment and government policies that are relevant to your family’s specific needs.
5. Respond with detailed actions, instead of reacting to fear-mongering.
6. Note that vinegar kills more germs than some expensive anti-bacterial liquids.
7. Keep on praying.

In Sisterhood!
