Below are some newsworthy facts and tips by health professionals on the Coronavirus Pandemic. At the end of the newsletter we will show you 3 tips on what you can do to stop the Coronavirus from effecting more people.
FACT 1 – 80% of Coronavirus Infections are No More Severe Than the Common Cold
This is according to Cody Meissner, an infectious disease expert and professor of pediatrics at Tufts University School of Medicine. She goes on to say that “children appear to have even milder infections than adults.”
FACT 2 – Adults Make Up Most of the Known Cases
The CDC reports that based on available evidence, children do not appear to be at high risk. Some children and infants may get infected, however, it is adults aged 60+ who are most vulnerable. In fact, less than 3% of people aged 10-59 years old were effected.
FACT 3 – Only 1-2% of Respiratory Illnesses Test Positive For Coronavirus in the U.S.
Deborah Birx, the Coronavirus Response Coordinator for the U.S., said in a press conference that less than 1-2% of all coronavirus tests in America have tested positive for Coronavirus. That means 98% of reported respiratory problems come from respiratory illnesses people get everyday and especially during the cold and flu season.
How Do We End the Coronavirus Pandemic?
Take Care of Grandparents and Elderly: Disinfect the house and do the chores and grocery shopping for your elderly parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and friends. They need to self-quarantine. Nothing shows them that you love and care for them more than looking after well-being.
Stay Clean: Clean your hands with soap and water and hand sanitizer as much as possible. Make sure to keep your clothes and house clean. Get Lysol or Clorox disinfectant and spray/wipe down your home and business.
Avoid Sick People: If someone has a sniffle, coughing up a lung or has any symptoms of a cold – keep your distance. Do not shake hands and have a 3-5 foot barrier between you and other people. It may sound extreme and that people won’t understand what you are doing… but believe us… everyone is doing the same thing 😊
