NON-PARTISAN: As a former journalist with a BA in English, our global collective media needs to not only blast headlines about Coronavirus Case and Death amounts, but ALSO the human RECOVERY amounts!!! Experts and politicians are asking for the public to "stay calm;" yet, since the majority of stories (and headlines) are ONLY reporting on the cases and deaths, MOST people have NO idea that it's even possible to RECOVER at all (which is more likely to cause unhelpful panic). That's sloppy journalism and we are BETTER THAN THAT. 

It's GOOD to keep the public informed, but in a WELL-ROUNDED way. 

The more well-rounded article titles SHOULD read, for example, "In U.S., Cases of Coronavirus Cross 500, Deaths Rise to 22, and 15 have made full Recoveries."

I also believe we need a collective scientific consensus on what the relapse time period length should be before reporting people as "CURED." For example, 1 month, etc. 

Thank you. 

Sincerely,

PS I am not trying to attack any one news network in particular, but I am merely asking ALL of you to headline and report the FULL SPECTRUM of cases, deaths AND RECOVERIES.

Amid growing coronavirus cases, another number increasing: recoveries
