Good morning,

I’m Bryan Fine, MD, MPH, CEO & Founder of Percentric. This e-newsletter – always evolving – focuses on keeping you well by addressing both non-COVID-19 and COVID-19 health concerns.

1. COVID- 19 update

Though New York now has more confirmed coronavirus cases than any country, Dr. Fauci agreed yesterday that we are finally seeing some flattening of the curve as the number of projected COVID-19 related deaths is dropping.

2. Looking toward the future

With the ever changing predictions for when the peak of coronavirus cases will be, a lot of people are wondering when we can expect to get back to normal. See this article about the four benchmarks we need to meet before things can really “get back to normal.”

4. Bored at home?

Nikon is offering free online photography classes through the end of the month.

3. Help yourself, help someone else

One way to combat the sense of helplessness and loss of control that many are facing right now is to do something that you know will help others. Blood donations are still critical at this time. If you are eligible, please consider donating. Blood types O and A are especially needed right now.

5. Ask a Percentric Doc

Question of the day: Should I be wearing gloves when I go out in public? This video gives a quick overview on why wearing gloves may do more harm than good- if you aren’t used to wearing them, they’re surprisingly easy to goof up. If you do want to use gloves in public, let this no-nonsense nurse explain cross contamination and give you step by step instructions on how to grocery shop without contaminating yourself.

Stay safe, smart, and sane.
