Many are hearing about the Coronavirus.
Many don’t want to know about it. It’s scary.
Many are freaking out over this.
Some think it’s manufactured.
Bottomline, all of us need to learn why this is happening, and remember that pandemics have happened many times in the past. That said – what’s ahead with this one?
More importantly – what can you do about it?
The Unknown Source
No one knows the source of this virus, but most agree that it started in the Chinese city of Wuhan. Although the number of people affected are unconfirmed, in China, at least 908 people have died to date and an estimated 40,171 people are known to have been infected on the Chinese mainland.
The number of infected appears to be increasing daily.
Technically, more people can die from the flu …
According to The Lancet medical journal published Dec. 13, 2019, new figures from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimated that seasonal flu kills 291,000 to 646,000 people worldwide each year, up from the previous year of 250,000 to 500,000 deaths a year.
So why is the Coronavirus predicted to be worse than the flu?
Primarily, no one knows much about it yet, and until they learn its originating source, no medical programs, other than isolation, can be efficiently implemented.
No vaccines or medicines are yet out there to stop the spread, and no one really knows how contagious it is.
It appears to be communicable via the air – in other words, it may be airborne.
As the story goes, for now, the illness was first identified in China on January 7, 2020 with the infection traced to a Wuhan seafood market that sold live animals.
We are NOT hearing about deaths amid live animals, however. This leads me to believe that the infection was not from the animals but from unsanitary conditions at the market if this is true.
Coronavirus affects the respiratory system, but its incubation period is still unclear.
Ok, this article is NOT meant to scare anyone – it is intended to remind you that there are things you can do to avoid viruses.
Remember that knowledge is power. Just make sure your sources of information are credible, and research more than 2 websites to get everyone’s various opinions.
And, stay out of the fear that many people like to spread. Take preventative action.
Several cases have been confirmed worldwide, including in the USA, in the Asia-Pacific region, in Europe, Australia, and in the Middle East.
Ask yourself how this virus spread across large oceans?
Well, travel is a good vehicle to spread pandemics – airplanes, trains, buses, and cruise ships. So, until this virus slows down, you might consider postponing your travels. If you have to travel for your work, consider some conference calling and Skype conferences instead for a few weeks or months.
When you go to public places, like the grocery store or a movie theater, clean everything that you touch with a wipe.
Use the hand wipes provided in many public places.
I’m not a fan of antibacterial soaps, but during an outbreak of anything, it’s prudent to use these hand sanitizers when in public places. You can keep a small bottle in your car, purse, or backpack.
Wash your hands often, and disinfect the public areas in your home and office, such as bathrooms, kitchens and break rooms, and door handles.
Where To Cough
Avoid coughing into your hands – cough and sneeze into your arm. And avoid touching your face – your eyes, nose, and mouth.
Stay At Home
This is a tough one, especially if your work doesn’t support sick days. This is especially challenging if you teach school. It’s important to stay at home, however, if you show signs or symptoms of getting sick.
Teachers have more bladder and kidney infections than most other occupations because teachers can’t run to the bathroom often enough, but getting a substitute teacher as a “prevention” is literally discouraged in most public schools. That said, teachers should meet with parents and administrators to propose a safe prevention program for both teachers, parents, and students.
Be smart about food prep and where you buy your foods. Consider eating out less, and avoid fast-food-drive-through restaurants.
Sanitize all dishes, utensils, and food storage bins regularly.
If viruses are a threat, don’t share any of your personal items, and don’t share your food and drinks. Practice safe sex, and stay smart when physically close to another person.
Boost Your Immunity
To avoid illness, boost your immune system and monitor your body pH if symptoms occur and your energy drops.
Go to my website to learn more about monitoring your body pH, but my research shows that a healthy saliva and urine pH is around 6.6 pH.
- Take a quality multi-vitamin 5 to 7 days a week after breakfast;
- Add a B-100 Complex 5 mornings a week;
- Run your vitamin C to bowel tolerance;
- Begin a conservative Detox Program to relieve unnecessary stress on your immune system;
- Get into Nature for a walk or gardening each day – take deep breaths of fresh air and absorb natural vitamin D from sunshine;
- Exercise regularly, but pay attention to your energy level and take it easy if you’re feeling a bit punk;
- Get plenty of rest.
When a mysterious potential pandemic looms in crowded places, play it smart and increase your wellness program to keep your body strong.
As our world becomes less sanitized and over-crowded, like in San Francisco, USA today, and our foods become more corporate (such as GMO and foods processed miles away from their origins), take every preventative step that you can to secure your individual health and wellness.
