I don´t have a TV. I don´t read the newspapers. Some might think I am not informed. Well, I am aware of the current situation and choose my source of information accordingly.

RKI for Germany.
ECDC for Europe.
WHO for the world.
CDC for the USA.

These are websites that are providing actual numbers of infections in this pandemic. I am gathering this necessary information every morning and put them into a spreadsheet. In this way a can watch the development closely and get to my own conclusions. Everything else is just chatter, propaganda and therefore noise, that I need to keep out of my head.

In my city the numbers of new infections are nearly equal with recoveries which is a good sign. New infections are increasing in Germany, with the highest rates in Bavaria – and this will probably lead to an ongoing lockdown or even more constricted regulations in the area. The numbers in the United States of America are alarming, this curve looks anything but flat to me. What is going on over there?
