Corona virus Update

Corona virus Update

If you have been shopping lately you may have seen the increase of hysteria about the virus.  People are buying unnecessary and excess stuff.  If you have bought teargas masks, 37 gallons of bottled water, or a years supply of surgical face masks that is extreme.

According to the CDC, most of the people in the United States have little immediate risk of exposure to the Coronavirus aka COVID-19. This is a new disease and they are still learning how it spreads, the severity of illness it causes, and to what extent it may spread in the United States.

Believe it or not, people like you and I are still catching colds, have allergies and even catching the flu. Hold on there cowboy!  Everybody that sneezes isn’t about to die.

Don’t be a bigot.

People—including those of Asian descent who have not recently been in an area of ongoing spread of COVID-19 or been in contact with a person who is a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19 are NOT A GREATER RISK of acquiring and spreading COVID-19 than other Americans.  Viruses cannot target people from specific populations, ethnicities, or racial backgrounds.

People who have returned from an area with ongoing spread of COVID-19 more than 14 days ago and do not have symptoms are not infected with the virus and contact with them will NOT give you the virus.

CDC recommends that travelers avoid all nonessential travel to China. This does not include Hong Kong, Macau, or the island of Taiwan.

Here are the hot spots around the world.

  • China (Level 3 Travel Health Notice)
  • Iran (Level 3 Travel Health Notice)
  • Italy (Level 3 Travel Health Notice)
  • Japan (Level 2 Travel Health Notice)
  • South Korea (Level 3 Travel Health Notice)

Level 3 is to avoid unnecessary travel to this area.
Level 2 Practice enhanced precautions to this area.
Level 1 practice regular precautions to this area

Don’t be an idiot.

Older adults and people with chronic medical conditions may be at increased risk for severe disease.  This is one of the reasons the elderly in Washington State were susceptible.
All of us should avoid contact with sick people that have traveled and clean their hands often by washing with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with 60%–95% alcohol. Soap and water still work.  Don’t bleach your hands.

Travelers should stay home and monitor their health during travel and for 14 days after returning to the United States. These travelers who feel sick with fever or cough or difficulty breathing should seek medical advice. Call ahead before you go to a doctor’s office or emergency room.

Don’t be nasty.

Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.

The CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a face

mask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19.

Face masks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to  others. The use of face masks is also crucial for health workers and people who are taking care of someone in close settings (at home or in a health care facility).

Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.

At the time of this post, there is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus and take care of your hygiene. I’ll keep you informed.
