Comment of the Week
“Coronavirus—I’m a long-time MDA follower and Primal enthusiast, and I’m writing now from Wuhan, China, where I’ve lived with my family since 2011. We’re on quarantine, stuck at home, and we’re healthy.
It’s easy to get sucked into the media’s depiction of this virus and what China and Wuhan are like. I’m not going to comment much because I don’t want to get sucked into the media hype again. Just writing because I’m glad you brought it up. Glad you addressed something about this virus. And I appreciate the respect with which you wrote.
I’m an American citizen, and Wuhan is my home.
Keep up the great writing and open and respectful platform, Mark!
– Glad to hear from you, Rebecca .
