COVID at HOME... Staying Home & Coping

Recommended Posts

FORWARDED PRACTICAL ADVICE
Finally something practical and honest from the Head of the Infectious Disease Clinic, University of Maryland,
USA:

1. We may have to live with C19 for months or years. Let's not deny it or panic. Let's not make our lives useless. Let's learn to live with this fact.

2. You can't destroy C19 viruses that have penetrated cell walls, drinking gallons of hot water - you'll just go to the bathroom more often.

3. Washing hands and maintaining a
two-metre physical distance is the best method for your protection.

4. If you don't have a C19 patient at home, there's no need to disinfect the surfaces at your house.

5. Packaged cargo, gas pumps, shopping carts and ATMs do not cause infection.
If you Wash your hands, live your life as usual.

6. C19 is not a food infection. It is associated with drops of infection like the ‘flu. There is no demonstrated risk that C19 is transmitted by food.

7. You can lose your sense of smell with a lot of allergies and viral infections. This is only a non-specific symptom of C19.

8. Once at home, you don't need to change your clothes urgently and go shower!
Purity is a virtue, paranoia is not!

9. The C19 virus doesn't hang in the air for long. This is a respiratory droplet infection that requires close contact.

10. The air is clean, you can walk through the gardens (just keeping your physical protection distance), through parks.

11. It is sufficient to use normal soap against C19, not antibacterial soap. This is a virus, not a bacteria.

12. You don't have to worry about your food orders. But you can heat it all up in the microwave, if you wish.

13. The chances of bringing C19 home with your shoes is like being struck by lightning twice in a day. I've been working against viruses for 20 years - drop infections don't spread like that!

14. You can't be protected from the virus by taking vinegar, sugarcane juice and ginger! These are for immunity not a cure.

15. Wearing a mask for long periods interferes with your breathing and oxygen levels. Wear it only in crowds.

16. Wearing gloves is also a bad idea; the virus can accumulate into the glove and be easily transmitted if you touch your face. Better just to wash your hands regularly.

Immunity is greatly weakened by always staying in a sterile environment.  Even if you eat immunity boosting foods, please go out of your house regularly to any park/beach.
Immunity is increased by EXPOSURE TO PATHOGENS,  not by sitting at home and consuming fried/spicy/sugary food and aerated drinks.

Still checking if 70 Scientists, Doctors actually approached Trump s as claimed.

Looks like a good read on China Virus
*****

70 scientists, doctors tell Trump how to regain control over corona crisis hijacked by radicals
The US scientists, medical professionals, and economists warned the president that the crisis was being used by some as a 'political opportunity'
 
May 21, 2020 – Last week, a letter containing a dozen science-based, common-sense suggestions for handling the China Virus was personally handed to President Trump. It was signed by 70 US scientists, medical professionals, economists, and other technical experts representing all parts of the political spectrum.

They set their political differences aside because of their shared belief that, as they explained, “genuine science should be the basis of our technical public policies and subsequent actions.  Unfortunately, far too often real science has been replaced by political science.”

In the case of the China virus, they noted, “some of the complaints relating to COVID-19 appear to be from those who see this pandemic as a political opportunity.”

Who among us has not noticed the ridiculous political posturing that some governors and mayors have been engaging in, which has nothing to do with public health and everything to do with political gamesmanship in advance of the upcoming elections?

These outside experts, on the other hand, promised a “non-political perspective and recommendations on the way forward with COVID-19” based on their “diverse backgrounds and expertise representing a cross-section of specialties and skills in a number of fields, ranging from health care to the physical sciences to economics. … We are all in the same fight, so we need to work

Immediately add a professional statistician to the COVID-19 team, continue flattening the curve, and require more accurate reporting of COVID-19 complications and deaths.
The initial models being used to project China Virus deaths were poorly designed and produced wildly inflated predictions of infections and deaths.  Perverse financial incentives to report even suicides and traffic fatalities as China Virus deaths made the problem worse.  Having an expert statistician, combined with clear reporting guidelines, would help bring the numbers back to reality.  

Federal government should put businesses into four categories (A thru D) based on the frequency and duration of close personal contact.
Right now some governors seem to be making entirely arbitrary decisions based more on politics than science.  Those on the Left seldom darken the doors of churches and gun stores, so it closes them down.  On the other hand, because their followers tend to frequent cannabis shops and liquor stores, it allows these to stay open.  

Having federal standards would help to remove politics from these decisions, and inject much-needed rationality.  An “A” business might be golf courses, while “D” businesses might be restaurants.

While private-public partnerships aggressively work to increase COVID-19 testing capability, educate citizens on how they can optimize their immune system.
Aside from living a healthy lifestyle, there is ample evidence that Vitamins C and D, in combination with Zinc, boosts your immune system and increases your body’s ability to fight off COVID-19 disease.  Rather than locking Americans down, health officials should be encouraging them to ramp up their innate immune system by taking supplements.

The FDA should immediately approve doctor-supervised HCQ+Z-Pak+Zn plus Remdesivir protocols.
Hydroxychloroquine should never have been politicized in the first place but, as soon as President Trump mentioned—accurately—that it was proving to be an effective tool in combating China Virus, his political enemies began to attack it.  ....

. . .

Congress should refrain from additional COVID-19 outlays, as an economically problematic amount has already been authorized.
An obscene amount of money has already been thrown at the China Virus epidemic, much of which was wasted. We built hospitals that were never used, and sent hospital ships to New York and California that saw mere handfuls of patients.  Other sums went to Progressive “wish list” items that had nothing whatsoever to do with the epidemic.  

Nancy Pelosi’s ridiculous 3 trillion dollar “fast track to socialism” bill is just more of the same. Any new expenditures should be specifically tied to dealing with the China Virus.  Our national debt is already close to unsustainable.  We should not be adding to it.

Continue to exhaustively investigate the origin of COVID-19.
Evidence is growing that the coronavirus not only leaked from the Wuhan biolab, but was created there.  An investigation is necessary not only to assign responsibility for the outbreak, but also to prevent a future outbreak from one of China’s labs.  Most importantly, it should include an assessment of the damage caused by the China Virus to the U.S. and the global economy, so that it can be used as a basis for seeking reparations from the CCP and its leaders for damages.  

If the CCP and its leaders are responsible, as the evidence indicates, then we should hold them responsible for their actions, and use all of the avenues at our disposal to recover, one way or another, damages.

Coronavirus: How can an airway infection cause diarrhoea?

With the coronavirus making headlines all over the world for months, most know to look out for its tell-tale fever, cough and loss of taste or smell.

Some may be surprised to learn, however, the respiratory infection can trigger diarrhoea.

The NHS does not recognise loose bowels as one of the three “main symptoms” but the symptom is acknowledged by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as well as the World Health Organization.

With the coronavirus considered an infection of the airways, some people may be puzzled as to how it impacts our gut.

Early research suggests the infection is mild in four out of five cases, but it can trigger a disease called COVID-19.

Coronavirus: How does it cause diarrhoea?

The coronavirus only emerged at the end of 2019, and there is still relatively little that scientists understand about the pathogen.

While the NHS identified fever and cough as symptoms early on, a loss of taste or smell was only recently added to the list.

Other signs of infection have also been noted, ranging from pink eye to discolouration of the fingers and toes.

“We call it a respiratory virus but it doesn’t only affect the airways,” Dr Nathalie MacDermott from King’s College London told Yahoo UK.

“Any viral infection can cause an array of symptoms. We call them a respiratory virus, [but] that’s just where it primarily affects or where it enters [the body]”.

Although not a coronavirus strain, seasonal flu can also cause diarrhoea.

[10:22, 6/28/2020] Dr. Raffy Consunji: The US government’s Centre for Disease Control (CDC) has made officially the emerging scientific evidence on Coronavirus transmission:

1. Very low risk of transmission from surfaces.
2. Very low risk from outdoor activities.
3. Very HIGH risk from gatherings in enclosed spaces like offices, religious places, cinema halls, gyms or theatres.

These findings that have been emerging for a while need to be applied by people to manage the situation in the best possible manner. Time to reduce panic about surface transmission, and not be too eager to go back to different types of crowds.

LATEST FROM CDC, USA

Q - Who is expected to catch CORONAVIRUS?
Q - What does it take to infect?

TO SUCCESSFULLY INFECT A PERSON, THE VIRUS NEEDS A DOSE OF ~1000 VIRAL PARTICLES (vp)

The typical environmental spread of activities:
😷 Breath: ~20 vp/minute
😷 Speaking: ~200 vp/minute
😷 Cough: ~200 million vp (enough of these may remain in air for hours in a poorly ventilated environment)
😷 Sneeze: ~200 million vp

FORMULA
SUCCESSFUL INFECTION = (Exposure to Virus x Time)

SCENARIOS
1. Being in vicinity of someone (with 6 ft distancing): Low risk if limit to less than 45 minutes

2. Talking to someone face to face (with mask): Low risk if limit to less than 4 minutes

3. Someone passing you by, like walking/jogging/cycling: Low risk

4. Well-ventilated spaces, with distancing: Low risk (limit duration)

5. Grocery shopping: Medium risk (can reduce to low by limiting time and following hygiene)

6. Indoor spaces: HIGH RISK

7. Public Bathrooms/Common areas: HIGH FOMITE/SURFACE TRANSFER RISK

8. Restaurants: HIGH RISK (can be reduced to medium risk by surface touch awareness)

9. Workplaces/Schools (even with social distancing): VERY HIGH RISK, including high fomite transfer risk

10. Parties/Weddings: VERY HIGH RISK

11. Business networking/conferences: VERY HIGH RISK

12. Arenas/Concerts/Cinemas: VERY HIGH RISK

RISK FACTORS
The bottom line factors you can use to calculate your risk are:
- indoors vs outdoors
- narrow spaces vs large, ventilated spaces
- high people density vs low people density
- longer exposure vs brief exposure
