Dr. Bonnie Henry has been a calming, reassuring presence daily in the lives of all British Columbians. She has managed the Covid crisis and kept the "numbers" down. We have learned to look up to her and trust her. Thus, when I saw the book written by her I grabbed it. It is surprisingly prescient in that it predicts something like this even n 2009. What is more important is that her mantra of, Soap, Water, and Common Sense has remained steadfast. A must-read for these times and all times. The book is easy to read and does not talk down to us.

Very very very good, easy to read. Great bibliography and although it is a 2009 book, it has a March 2020 introduction referencing COVID-19. A must read given the times. I thought it would scare me but it gave me comfort.
Available on Kobo and Kindle [read March 202 intro; chap 3; Top 10 Myths and Top 10 ways to stay healthy if you are in a hurry which most of us in the region are not right now].
Dr. Bonnie Henry is chief of British Columbia, Canada CDC and face of their daily COVID-19 updates. Her calm, compassionate demeanor and consistent message (wash hands frequently, cover mouth with elbow when sneezing/coughing, stay home when sick, is very helpful since the 2009 and 2020 messages are consistent. Dr. Henry worked SARS(2002), EBOLA(2014?) and more. Stay safe, it is in our hands!
