HOW COVID-19 IS TRANSMITTED AND HOW TO STAY SAFE

Explanation of transmission and safe distances
https://www.news24.com/Vi...ep-yourself-safe-20200310

Like any infectious disease of this nature the best way to take care of yourself and family is to stay mindful:

*Wash hands throughly and often
*Disinfect communal items: phones, door handles, light switches,  remotes,  etc
*Don't touch your face,  especially eyes,  nose,  and mouth
*In public, use glove or object to touch public communal items: doors,  elevators, grocery carts, etc. Or wash hands immediately after
*Air out house when able
*Keep distance from anyone publicly sneezing/coughing
*Go to doctors if you start exhibiting symptoms and stay out of public domains

Disinfectants you can use against coronavirus:

In the end, frequent hand washing is still the best defense.

Human coronaviruses can remain infectious on inanimate surfaces for up to 9 days. Surface disinfection with 0.1% sodiumhypochlorite or 62-71% ethanol significantly reduces corona-virus infectivity on surfaces within 1 min exposure time. We expect a similar effect against the SARS-CoV-2

COVID-19 FAQs
https://www.marketwatch.c...3-12?mod=personal-finance

Is coronavirus airborne like measles?
“It’s a virus that travels in droplets. This is very good news. With an airborne virus, one person could infect the whole room ....the virus could remain airborne for “up to 3 hours post aerosolization.”
" “Studies have looked at how far spit and little droplets fly, and that’s the magic number.” Meeting in outdoor spaces, in theory, could give the virus less of a chance to spread."


How long can it live in your bathroom?
Studies suggest that coronaviruses — including preliminary information on the COVID-19 virus — may persist on surfaces for a few hours or up to several days.”
Higher temperatures, based on earlier coronaviruses, are likely to degrade it — but experts caution this novel coronavirus may not necessarily go away in warmer weather.
“Previous coronaviruses can remain viable in cold, moist surfaces up to nine days,” Ostrosky said. So if you are sharing a home with someone who has coronavirus, he strongly advises against sharing the same bathroom.

Will recirculated air on a plane make me sick?

In-flight oxygen is probably of higher quality than the air in your home. “If you have an infected person in the front of the plane, and you’re in the back of the plane, your risk is close to zero simply because the area of exposure is thought to be roughly six feet from the infected person,”
“Ventilation rates provide a total change of air 20 to 30 times per hour,” the WHO says. “Most modern aircraft have recirculation systems, which recycle up to 50% of cabin air. The recirculated air is usually passed through HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filters, of the type used in hospital operating theatres and intensive care units, which trap dust particles, bacteria, fungi and viruses.

Are men more affected by this than women?
“Men do tend to be more affected than women and their symptoms are often more severe,” Ostrosky said. “Estrogen has a protective effect. When scientists block estrogen production in animals, they become more susceptible to coronaviruses and they get worse symptoms.”

Do face masks guard against coronavirus?

"Face masks help prevent patients from spreading the virus, but they don’t protect the healthy,....hey can help act as a barrier if a sick person coughs or sneezes. “Most face masks do not effectively filter small particles from the air and don’t prevent leakage around the edge of the mask when the user inhales,” the CDC adds."


Should I cancel my movie and dinner date?
Whether you’re on a plane or a train, you are at risk of contracting coronavirus, especially if you are seated near an infected person who coughs or sneezes and/or you touch a contaminated surface and then your face without properly washing your hands. The WHO says there’s no difference between sitting in a restaurant, office or movie theater: If you’re near an infected person, you’re at risk.

While you can’t do much about being seated next to an infected passenger on a plane at 30,000 feet, you can exercise responsible “social distancing,” Ostrosky said. “The more people who are in that enclosed space with you, the higher the risk you have of being exposed to someone who is sick,” he added. “If we had to rank them, there is an increased risk in larger groups.”


Wasn’t coronavirus already a pandemic?
"Not technically. An outbreak is deemed to have become a pandemic when it has spread from human-to-human on several continents, while an epidemic is a disease that infects regions or a community over a large geographical area
There’s subjectivity involved in designating an epidemic a pandemic, and epidemiologists finally agreed that the efforts to contain the virus had failed. In other words, it’s now a matter of containing the spread and slowing it down to give scientists time to work on a vaccine."

An excellent video by Nick Jewell. He spoke to our group on Thursday of this week. March 19. Or March 18. I can't remember. He is an expert.

Our National Biologist Board published today on their social media this video about corona virus and covid-19:

https://www.facebook.com/...s/videos/570657137141721/

It is in English and explains in a simplified way how the virus and the disease afftect our body, and why the social distancing measures are so important.
