10 things each day about the coronavirus outbreak: stats, facts, news, and misinfo.
Welcome to 5+5, which is (currently) a coronavirus newsletter thing by me, Josh Butler. Journalist, pest, internet loiterer from Sydney.
This newsletter will be devoted to coronavirus for the foreseeable future, as we navigate this pandemic.
I’m calling it ‘5+5’ because I want to bring you 5 big things and 5 other things from the daily news blast of coronavirus. Some of it will be stuff that’s been all over the news; some of it will be stuff that flew a bit under the radar; and some of it will be stuff that you’d only ever find if - like me - you spend 22 hours a day plugged into the internet and The Hell Site which is Twitter.
The reason I’m doing this is because the news hose is blasting at full bore right now, and there’s a lot of information (and misinformation) out there. I’ll hope to bring you the stuff you need to know, tell you how to find it yourself, and show you what is being misrepresented or straight-up lied about.
You’ll get 5 big things (official stats, important info) and 5 other things (nice stuff, viral social things, little bits) each edition. Hope you like it. Tell your friends?
I want and welcome and encourage feedback. If you have ideas, suggestions, criticism, whatever, please:
email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
or find me on Twitter at @JoshButler, if you use that hellsite
or follow me on Facebook at facebook.com/joshbutlerjournalist
