"Here’s how to arm yourself for the health catastrophe caused by public

"First, you should recognize that media is overwhelmingly incentivized
to produce negative and alarmist headlines, without the accompanying
historical context and analytical expertise needed for the average
person to evaluate the severity of those headlines. This is especially
problematic for the new coronavirus, because Americans have
significantly poor health literacy relative to their knowledge of other
public policy issues. And while some news publications may be
responsible and balanced, most are operated on business models that
privilege sensationalism and deem positive news and positive trends to
be not newsworthy. Meanwhile, as several studies of the Ebola crisis
demonstrated, it’s best to stay off of social media unless you want to
be misinformed or terrified."
