About the Book
It is hard to believe that the most powerful country in the world could be brought to its knees by something so small and fragile it cannot be seen without the aid of a microscope…
But it did happen.
Indeed, the outbreak of COVID-19 seems to have brought the entire world to the point of collapse… serving as a bitter warning to future generations to be prepared.
In Pandemic 2020, Cheryl Powell LMHC combines research and statistics with personal knowledge and expertise as she documents one woman’s experience navigating the “new normal.” Written from the viewpoint of both observer and healthcare professional, Powell writes to ensure there is a record of our current experience for future generations, and to remind us all that we, as a species, can emerge from this crisis stronger than before.
