My name is Dr. Marie Socha and I am the owner of SHRR Consulting, Inc. I am adding this "COVID-19/JUST THE FACTS" page as a concise resource where you can obtain information about this illness. There is no need for me to re-invent the wheel as the best resources out there are from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC). So that I could maintain the accuracy of these messages, I directly transferred excerpts from these resources below and have credited their source(s) (by section).
Hopefully this information will help educate you and alleviate any concerns you may have. I will do my best to update information on a daily basis, but please be patient as this is a "moving target" and data changes frequently.
