Dr. Drew Pinsky is, by training, a medical internist. What is that you ask? Well, an internist is a physician (medical doctor) dealing with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of adult diseases.
Additionally, Dr. Drew is a well-known TV and radio personality. So, when I see a headline that Dr. Drew is slamming the media over the coverage of the Coronavirus, I pay attention as he’s an expert on both fronts (medicine and media).
Before you start preparing for the end of the world, please take a few seconds and actually listen to someone who has a little bit more expertise on the subject of viral infection than the hosts of “The Today Show.”
I could not agree with Dr. Drew more. For all the fear of exposure to the Coronavirus, do you have any idea how big your exposure to the flu is/has been this year? And by the way, the flu…the flu…has killed 18,000 people this season to date in America.
