Corona Virus – New and Old
Over the last few weeks the Corona Virus outbreak and spread has caused a lot of confusion and fear throughout the entire world, not just here in the U.S. It is important to remember that all of us, your doctors included, are still learning about this new strain of the virus and we will need to be flexible, resilient, and adaptable to the new information as it revealed.
The things that YOU can do at home and at work to minimize your exposure and risk are the old-time tried and true methods of washing you hands with soap and water, minimize your contact with other people, DO NOT deliberately go out if you are sick or be in contact with someone who is sick if you can avoid it. Use disinfectants on surfaces frequently touched and/or used to prepare foods. Single use of drinking glasses, coffee cups, spoons, wash clothes, etc. is also advisable. Using the heat cycle on your dishwasher is an effective way to “sanitize” your dishware so more frequent washes will help minimize your exposure, especially in a multi-person household.
If you are not sick, keeping your immune system working at its peak is one of the best “preventatives” to getting sick there is. Staying well hydrated, eating nutritious foods, getting regular sleep and exercise all help your body to ward off pathogens like viruses. During this high exposure event it is advisable that you exercise outside in the fresh air rather than in crowds of people in a club, gym, etc. Regular exposure to natural sunlight is also beneficial to your bodily functions, including your immune system, not to mention your overall attitude!
With spring in the air, it is a good idea on the warmer afternoons to open some windows and let fresh air flow through your house, out with the old air and in with new.
Modern technology definitely allows for up-to-date information but there is also an issue with misinformation being disseminated quickly. An example is the varying quotes online about how long a person that has been exposed with the Corona Virus is contagious to other people. The medical professionals that I have been in contact with are unsure of this time frame and expressed a great deal of frustration at the amount of incorrect information that is on the internet regarding the Corona Virus in general, ranging from it is just a hoax and is being way over stated to it is the end of human civilization as we know it!
The best advice I can give you all is to stay calm, use common sense, and remember that good judgement is rarely exhibited when someone is in panic mode. Take care of yourselves, your loved ones, and your neighbors.
