Humanity suffers from crises and disasters constantly. But the breadth of the latest crisis-the Covid-19 pandemic-has affected almost all corners of the world and has caused millions of deaths and so many more victims who have survived its worst effects but may still suffer long-lasting health issues from it. Those "lucky" enough to have suffered only mild cases or managed to avoid infection altogether are still victims because of social and economic distresses that the pandemic has caused. This book describes the crisis and offers advice and strategies for coping with the stresses. Each chapter explores briefly one of four areas of our human condition, be it health, spirituality, social issues, or finances, and offers strategies through 100 questions and answers about dealing with a pandemic. This book can be a supplement to the seminal book of Personal Reconstruction with specific information about pandemics.
