Dr. Drew‘s still fired up about coronavirus — specifically, the media’s “unconscionable” role in causing a panic — and suggests you turn to just one group for advice … and Dr. Oz agrees.
We got both doctors outside 30 Rock in NYC Monday, and they have some interesting thoughts as the COVID-19 crisis continues to escalate. Dr. Drew insists coronavirus is being overblown — especially compared to a normal flu season — and even though it’s a serious issue … he says the hysteria isn’t warranted.
Drew admits the virus has led to some dire, real-world consequences for his older patients and businesses across the country — but claims that’s all due to the panic, and not the virus itself.
Dr. Oz makes a compelling point about coronavirus fears — telling us, when people are instructed not to panic but aren’t given much instruction otherwise … they panic more.
So, his instruction includes worrying about stuff you can control — and help make sure old folks and sick patients have necessary resources to combat the virus. For instance, Oz says notloading up on masks if you’re a generally healthy person would help tremendously.
As we’ve reported … coronavirus hysteria doesn’t seem to be going away anytime soon. NBA players are scared, major events are being canceled … and strip clubs are using it as a marketing gimmick.
