Believe science and don't be traumatized

I just listened on youtube to Neil Degrass Tyson tell Stephen Colbert that the real question about the coronavirus is "will people believe science"?

Wash you hands. Try not to touch your face (I can't do it!). Stay away from big crowds, but don't make yourself a victim of terror about it all.

The deaths in the US are just over 20. The flu kills tens of thousands. Believe science and be careful but don't go to panic mode about this virus.

Time will tell whether this is the non-news the president thinks it is or the pandemic science tells us it could be.

But be careful, beloved.

Believe science.

Don't give in to trauma.
