COVID-19 or ‘Coronavirus’ – An evolving YLC resource information centre – Your Life Counts

The top line, go-to resource is the World Health Organization (WHO) website. A virus tracker is provided by Johns Hopkins University.

KEEP CALM & CARRY ON.

We are living in unprecedented times of uncertainty as Public Health Departments around the world respond to the lead given by The World Health Organization (WHO) to slow the spread of the Coronavirus. By being informed and by following the guidelines, you and your loved ones will have the best opportunity to stay healthy and well. We encourage you to stay informed, but also to limit the amount of time you spend following the media and health bulletins. Too much information can be very overwhelming and distressing. It’s important to stay within your limits of coping emotionally. It will help you to cope. Help to stop the spread of the virus, wash your hands and disinfect your home. By supporting one another and staying calm, we will all get through these tough times, together.
