Personally, I think we were better off when news in general came at a slower pace. These days you get every blog and website reporting on every unvetted study that got a weird result like it’s the gospel truth. Add to that the armchair epidemiologists, Russian bots, and bona fide whackos here, and it’s no wonder people don’t know what to believe anymore.
My strategy is to just wear my mask, observe distancing as best I can, try to be smart about the risks I take, and don’t try to grok the whole thing. It’ll be years if not decades before we really understand all of the nuances of this virus, so getting worked up about every crazy thing you hear is not worth the energy.
