How to Frame the Coronavirus

At the individual level, you have many options for how to frame the coronavirus situation. You could continue to see it as some meaningless objective event, remaining detached from assigning any meaning to it. It just is. A virus is simply doing what a virus does. And people are reacting to it as people do. It has no special personal meaning for you. Or you could see it as some kind of spiritual sign with a very personal meaning for you. Or you could see it as a subjective reality event within your simulation, in which case it could have personal meaning as a form of communication from the simulator. Within that same context, however, it could just be a semi-random event without any personal meaning, like a disaster happening in Sim City. You could frame this however you like and in whatever way you find interesting because the assignment of meaning is your choice. You don’t have to assign a meaning if you don’t want to. But if you feel intuitively called to assign a personal meaning to an event like this, especially if it keeps grabbing your attention and you keep wondering about possible meanings in a spiritual or subjective sense, you can always assign a meaning. If you’re going to assign a meaning to an unfolding event like this, how do you decide what meaning (or meanings) to assign? I’ll walk you through the process by sharing how I’d do it. First off, let me caution you about avoiding a special kind of trap when you as...

Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), the cause of coronavirus disease (COVID-19), spreading from Wuhan to worldwide has been emerged since December 2019. Although scientists and researchers have been racing to develop specific therapeutic agents or vaccines against SARS-CoV-2 since the identification of the agent, either a drug or a vaccine has not been approved to treat or to prevent COVID-19 up to date. On the base of historical experiences, Convalescent Plasma (CP), a passive antibody therapy, has been evaluated as a hopeful and potential therapeutic option since the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak.
