Mindset You Need to Survive the Coronavirus Pandemic

During this pandemic, we need to be careful with our minds. Fear is everywhere. Whenever we turn on the TV, we hear a report about more people have gotten infected and died, or how hospitals are packed with patients, or how many more people lost their jobs and so on.
