About

News reports about the COVID-19 pandemic can be overwhelming and lack context. I write this at the end-of-day from the Seattle-area. Everything is fact-based; all reported cases have links. My goal: protect your time & your psyche...

(“did I miss something??!?”) by providing relevant daily news about coronavirus/SARS-CoV-2 that you might not see/hear/watch otherwise. Although I make use of the Johns Hopkins dashboard, I visit every state department of health site to source those data. So my “state stats” are almost always a teeny bit less than Johns Hopkins, at least for “today’s” stat. But it’s the trends - and the cases/million - that are key, despite news focus on the day’s scary-big number.

I’m a journalist and educator (and economist by education more than practice) who has been involved with public policy since high school, with a historic emphasis on environmental and agricultural policy. This newsletter started as a “cheat sheet” to help me create context about this pandemic for my own understanding. Friends said it was helpful, so I’ve made it public. And launched my first SubStack newsletter.

Quite helpful!
It has lots of data -- both US and global. I like that it comes daily; it's a summary (with links to everything) that I can look forward to...and it saves me a lot of my own research & time.
