NEW CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC TIPS
CORONAVIRUS COVID PANDEMIC TIPS 2.0
- Pass these around to friends
- Wash your hands often and vigorously with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
- Most of the infected show no visible signs of being infected until weeks later. Assume that anyone could be infected and capable of transmission.
- Any group of people can restart a transmission cycle. Until the government notifies you that the pandemic has reduced to one infection in 200 people, avoid all groups of people.
- 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.
- Disease particles can survive on surfaces for days. Wipe all Amazon plastic delivery envelopes with alcohol before touching them.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. Your tear ducts are rapid entry points for the virus.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick. Virus particles hang in the air for many minutes so do not walk through an area where coughing or sneezing people are.
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Carpenter's mask's offer minimal protection. Only H95 masks are effective. Anything that stops microscopic particles from reaching your skin, your lungs and your ducts is good as long as it does not restrict your breathing.
- You can survive a full infection if you are in good health, well nourished and stay hydrated. The worst known after-effects of Covid are lung damage
- The virus can hang in the air for a significant period of time. If a group of people are walking towards you, cross the street so you do not inhale their coughs and sneezes.
- When you are shopping, wear an H95 mask and rubber gloves and throw the gloves away afterwards. The virus can live on product containers for days, so wipe products with alcohol wipes. An infected clerk can re-spread the virus.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
- Stop drinking alcoholic drinks, they reduce your immune system.
- Don't be too concerned about testing. You can easily get reinfected by COVID and the probe they shove down your nose is not fun. Worry more about getting too close to the infected that do not know they are infected. Testing is for those with full systems at risk of death.
- The disease can be spread via intimate contact with any skin surface. Don't touch things in the public.
- Avoid mass transit, movie and entertainment theaters and crowds.
- Stop smoking or being around smokers. Smoking makes you highly susceptible to death from COVID
- The disease can survive for a number of days on money. Handle cash with care. Soak your pocket change in alcohol and put change given to you by a clerk in a ziplock bag without handling it.
- Write Hollywood movie studios and plead with them, for pubic safety, to release all new films on the web for the protection of audiences. Universal has complied, but with price-gouging rates, the other studios are stalling.
- If you know of an elderly person who appears to be alone and sick, please contact them by telephone to check on them.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
