Unique Advice About Preventing the Coronavirus
This just in from Michael O’Connor – a man who worked in Shenzhen Hospital (Guangdong Province, China).
DETECTION / SYMPTOMS:
If you have a runny nose and sputum, you have a common cold. Coronavirus pneumonia is a dry cough with no runny nose.
It will first infect the throat, so you’ll have a sore throat lasting 3/4 days.
The virus then blends into a nasal fluid that enters the trachea and then the lungs, causing pneumonia. This takes about 5/6 days further.
With the pneumonia comes high fever and difficulty in breathing.
The nasal congestion is not like the normal kind. You feel like you’re drowning. It’s imperative you then seek immediate attention.
The new NCP coronavirus may not show signs of infection for many days. How can one know if he/she is infected? By the time they have a fever and/or cough and goes to the hospital, the lungs are usually 50% fibrosis and it’s too late!
If someone sneezes with it, it takes about 10 feet before it drops to the ground and is no longer airborne.
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.
On fabric it can survive for 6-12 hours. Normal laundry detergent will kill it.
Taiwan experts provide a simple self-check that we can do every morning:
Take a deep breath and hold your breath for more than 10 seconds. If you complete it successfully without coughing, without discomfort, stuffiness or tightness etc. it proves there is no fibrosis in the lungs, basically indicating no infection.
This new virus is not heat-resistant and will be killed by a temperature of just 26/27 degrees. It hates the Sun.
Drinking warm water is effective for all viruses.
Try not to drink liquids with ice.
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.
You can also gargle as a prevention. A simple solution of salt in warm water will suffice.
ADVICE by Japanese doctors treating COVID-19 cases:
Ensure your mouth and throat are moist, never DRY.
Take a few sips of water every 15 mins at least.
Why? Even if the virus gets into your mouth…drinking water or other liquids will WASH them down through your esophagus and into the stomach. Once there in the tummy…your stomach acid will kill the virus.
If you don’t drink enough water more regularly…the virus can enter your windpipes and into the LUNGS. That’s very dangerous.
SO DRINK PLENTY OF WATER!
