  • Why not focus on the positives?
  • Instead of locking our attention on the death toll, why not look at numbers of people who have fully recovered? On the television, they list the number of infections and the number of deaths. It is natural for the mind to assume that most infections translate to death, as death is the greatest fear for most people.
  • Why highlight that fear constantly? Of course, we need information, but why not make it so that people would have to take an additional step to uncover that information. Instead, they could post the number of infections and the number of people who have recovered. This will give hope and courage to people.
