Collection: Coronavirus (COVID-19)
With the amount of information out there, what's the most critical links for this virus? This collection answers that question.
On Friday, I sent out issue #141 of DanylkoWeb Digest and included important Coronavirus links.
Then I thought "This is definitely bigger than the newsletter!" and decided to build this collection.
While it's a little late for my regular Monday post and not really technical in nature, I feel it's technical enough to show the community some websites to help people understand this issue and to show it's not just a "flu" and clearly show it's a pandemic. While the Coronavirus (COVID-19) does show flu-like symptoms, it's a little more than said symptoms.
I felt this was an important enough issue where it warranted a centralized collection of critical links for my readers.
If you have any other great links, please contact me so I can add them to the collection.

I've been watching this since it was merely an 11,000 count and I've mentioned it a couple times in the newsletter.
The links above were accumulated over the past two months and as recent as this morning (2020-Mar-27). I've watched as this virus spread from 11,000 to (at the time of writing this) 174,000 so I refer to these almost on a daily basis (like the John Hopkins Coronavirus Dashboard).
If you found this valuable, please share this page on all the socials. I'll be accumulating more as more information becomes available.
