Navigating Through The “Coronavirus-Panic”: 8 Inconvenient Facts To Consider
Well folks, I sure didn’t expect my first article on this new website to talk about a global pandemic. I would have expected an exposé on 5G or a heavy-hitting commentary on Elon Musk’s current crazy plan to send up to 42,000 EMF-beaming satellites in space. But here we are.
I must say that, like it happened for a lot of people, the COVID-19 (coronavirus) crisis caught me completely off guard at first, and left me with a perfectly dangerous mix of anxiety and depression. “I’m done reading about the coronavirus,” I told my wife and business partner Gen a few days ago. “This is not my battle.”
But that very afternoon, I received an email from one of my international collaborators — one who frequently sends me updates on the development of wireless technologies — that would completely change my mind.
“Nick…” he said (quoting him loosely), “A lot of people want to know your calm perspective on this whole situation. I think the best thing you can do to calm down your anxiety levels is not to ignore the issue, but the exact opposite… do more research, and simply publish what you’ve found so far.” It hit home big time, and I got to work.
My goal with this article is not to claim I have all the answers, because I definitely don’t. This is my attempt at bringing a balanced perspective on a global issue which affects every one of us, and one that is clouded by a massive amount of fear.
Note: Please note that the information below has been last updated on April 1st, 2020, so by the time this gets published, it’s possible that certain parts will have already become irrelevant or inaccurate. This is the nature of such a fast-paced, media-frenzied crisis.
This article reflects my current understanding of the situation. That understanding has its limitations, one being that viral epidemiology and statistics are relatively new topics for me compared to EMF science and other areas I’ve spent years studying. If you see glaring mistakes in the article, please contribute to a healthy discussion below (and help me and others in the process) and don’t let that deter you from the main point: The clear disconnect between the available scientific data and our reaction to COVID-19.
If inaccuracies are found or new information comes to light, I might update this article, in which case I’ll include a description of the changes I’ve made in this box.
