I do not wish to share in the latest panic, but instead urge people to keep their nerves – and common sense. I have created a graphic contribution on the topic, and t-shirts and a few other items with the design can be bought on Society6 and Redbubble. Hopefully the humour won’t go unnoticed, but it seems everything needs to be explained explicitly these days. My profit margin on those platforms is 20% of the sale price and I WILL DONATE the entire margin of any purchase of this design to a local research or medical center.
My next newsletter will contain a little more information, approaching the topic from a scientific point of view rather than the panic-instilling rhetoric currently making the rounds. And I am particularly pointing my finger at the dumb choice of words of New York’s Mayor Bill de Blasio. We are not at war, Mr. de Blasio.
