I’m sure everyone is concerned with Coronavirus – COVID-19. Here’s some useful information from experts at Stanford University on Coronavirus, and from Dr Edward Wagner.
The new Coronavirus may not show signs of infection for many days. How can you know if you are infected?
There is currently no vaccine to prevent the coronavirus (COVID-19). The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person. Avoid close contact with people who are sick, and avoid unnecessary close contact with everyone while the virus is active. Experts believe the virus is spread:
- Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).
- Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.
IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT – CORONAVIRUS:
1. If you have a runny nose and sputum (mucus coughed up from the respiratory tract), you have a common cold.
2. Coronavirus pneumonia is characterized by a dry cough (with no runny nose), fever, and shortness of breath.
3. If someone sneezes with it, it goes about 10 feet before it drops to the ground and is no longer airborne.
4. If it drops on a metal surface it will live for at least 12 hours – so if you come into contact with any metal surface, wash your hands as soon as you can with a bacterial soap. Wear a glove or use a paper towel when filling up at gas station.
5. On fabric it can survive for 6-12 hours. Normal laundry detergent will kill it.
6. Drinking warm water is effective for all viruses. Try not to drink liquids with ice.
7. Wash your hands frequently as the virus can only live on your hands for 5-10 minutes, but – a lot can happen during that time – you can rub your eyes, pick your nose unwittingly and so on.
8. You should also gargle as a prevention. A simple solution of salt in warm water will suffice.
Stay home if you’re sick.
Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, or cough/sneeze into the inside of your elbow. Throw used tissues in the trash.
REST and Down time deliver big immune system rewards – Overdoing and not sleeping enough taxes your immune system. If you’re feeling tired or run down, get some extra sleep, spend time in the sun, meditate and rejuvenate.
Antioxidants are the good guys.
Antioxidants occur naturally in the body and you also get them from some foods you consume. They provide protection against the effects of damaging free radicals in your body, including your skin. They act as free radical scavengers, using electrons to neutralize and “mop up” free radicals, preventing them from damaging your cells.
Many studies have confirmed the benefits of antioxidants and the role they play in maintaining good health and reducing your risk of a number of diseases. Antioxidants also can help slow down the aging process, which can have immense effects on your skin health. That’s an extra BONUS!
