Coronavirus: Signal vs. Noise
Dear Marker Reader,
As you gear up to begin your week, the distractions are probably already tugging at you: What are these bizarre new coronavirus symptoms people are talking about? What’s going on with the stimulus bill? Who is Dr. Fauci, and why do I need to care about him?
Marker will be your calm in the storm when it comes to navigating business (today: how the pandemic will impact the already-precarious IPO market). But our parent, Medium, also wants to help you focus on the signals, not the noise. On Friday, our in-house team of health and science editors launched the new Medium Coronavirus Blog, along with an accompanying newsletter. Like all of Medium’s coronavirus content, both are free and un-paywalled.
Hand-curated and vetted by the health and science experts of our sister publication, Elemental, the blog will offer the latest articles and guidance from across the Medium platform — including Marker — as well as the best coronavirus content from the web. What you won’t see here is the unmodulated panic and disinformation that’s rampant online.
Here’s to a week of focus,
Executive Editor, Marker // Medium
