Morning gorgeous xx
How are you all this afternoon? Good I hope. For those that aren’t so good, I do hope things change for you soon. As usual, hugs all round and best wishes to one and all.
I’m going to briefly mention the Corona Virus (COVID-19, SARS-COV-2) as it’s on everyone’s mind at the moment and I do believe there’s a lot of mass media hype surrounding it. So, here goes…
Listen. It’s a virus, like any other virus. And it’s a droplet virus at that; just like chickenpox, measles, influenza and the like (yes, you can include SARS in that as well if you’re feeling frisky). And it’s a particularly nasty strain of droplet virus as well. Oh yeah, I will admit it’s nasty; but it is still a droplet virus nonetheless.
“IT IS NOT KNOWN TO BE FULLY AIRBORNE!“
That’s a good thing – A really good thing. It means if you’re not in someone’s personal space and your surroundings are hygienic, you have little chance of catching the virus – Wash your hands, be hygenic, don’t pick your nose or scratch your arse… Remember when you were a kid? This stuff is easy. And if you are in one of the more vulnerable groups, keep your personal space yours. Don’t let those idiots and narcissits get in your face – It’s not healthy. Stand up amd tell people to keep their distance as the virus want’syou to breathe on people if you have it, that’s spreading it. Add to the fact that it’s roughtly 14 days before you know you have it and you’re contagious in that time, and well… Paranoia and Panic Spreading, again.
You want to keep your distance? The simplest test is this:- Breathe on a window – Yeah, I’m being serious. Then look at your breath, move back and repeat until you reach a point that when you breathe on the window, you can’t see anything left of your breath. That’s the MINIMUM distance you need to keep to prevent the spread of the virus. It is that simple, it really is, that’s all you got to do, and did I already say it? I’ll say it again, wash your damn hands – It’s that easy.
Oh, one more thing before I move on…
DIARROHEA, A RUNNY NOSE AND A CHESTY, MUCUS TYPE COUGH ARE NOT SYMPTOMS OF COVID-19!
All that toilet roll you bought… TAKE IT BACK – It’s fucking useless!!
The virus produces a DRY mouth, SORE throat, TICKLY cough and Pneumonia like symptoms (high temperature, etc.). Drinking LOTS of WARM water to push the viral cells down the Oesophagus and into the stomach, where bacteria can kill it; is essential. If you don’t, the virus is likely to enter the Trachia where it’s mainly dry with minimal mucus, this allows the virus to reach the lungs more easily and multiply.
Drinking warm water WILL slow down and possibly even prevent the spread of the virus within your body. Look it up, I did. It’s one of the top three things you can do to keep this thing at bay. And they work, they really do. China forced people to do them, others didn’t. Denmark did. Those that did are controlling the spread, those that didn’t… Well, you’ve seen the news.
So, let’s see what do you have to do to slow this thing down and stop it? Let’s have a look:
- Keep your distance – Essential, stay out of someone’s personal space.
- Be hygienic. Simple and easy – Wash your hands (not sanitiser, it’s useless unless it’s got a high alcohol content), don’t pick your nose or scratch your arse, and keep your surroundings clean
- Drink. Lots – If you think you have it, hit the warm water like it’s booze on a Saturday night. You know you want to
Oh yeah, and don’t believe the facebook hype. There’s way too much bull floating about, just like Donald Trump and Boris Johnson – Two strains?? Jesus, I’ve heard it all…
Right, rant over. Moving on…
