COVID-19

History of Coronavirus

“Coronavirus” may seem unfamiliar to many, however almost everyone has encountered a milder form of the Coronavirus family virus.  The Coronavirus family with its known four human strains accounts for one fifth of common cold cases occurring every year. Other strains of the Coronavirus family cause endemic diseases in certain animals. Until less than two decades ago, all known human strains of Coronavirus caused very mild disease so that research on coronavirus research was on a back burner.

 

In 2003, a virulent (aggressive) strain of the Coronavirus, which created the SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome) outbreak in China. “Everybody in the field was shocked,” says microbiologist Susan Weiss of the University of Pennsylvania. “Scientists started paying attention to this group of viruses.” It is believed that the SARS outbreak was born when an animal strain (most likely civet cat) of coronavirus infected humans, resulting in a type of disease called a zoonosis. In 2012 researchers realized the Coronaviruses’ inclination for such jumps, especially when another strain of Coronavirus bounced from camels to humans, causing MERS (Middle East respiratory syndrome). That illness has killed 858 people to date, primarily in Saudi Arabia, representing approximately 34 percent of those infected. It is now certain that SARS, MERS and the new coronavirus all originated in bats. The most recent genetic analysis of the 2019-nCoV genome found that it shares 96 percent of its RNA with a coronavirus strain previously identified in a specific bat species in China.

HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELF

Stay safe from the coronavirus.

Wash your Hands

Wash our hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom or after touching potentially dirty or contaminated surfaces. Develop the habit of washing hands before eating,  after blowing the nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Keep a bottle of sanitizer available in your car and at each of your home’s entrances; or better yet, in your pocket or purse. Wash hands with silver hydrosol that is in nano form e.g. Bio-Active silver hydrosol 10-ppm or better yet 23-ppm liquid or gel. Please Contact us for adequate supply.

Avoide Close Contact

  • Maintain Enough Distance

We need to avoid close contact from those who are sick. We even may consider staying at home when we are sick.  The effective minimal distance to be from anyone who is sneezing, or coughing is at least 3 feet. Standing this far away can help prevent us from inhaling any liquid droplets containing the virus that could have been coughed or sneezed.

Stay Home

Sleep is necessary for your immune system to run as efficiently as possible. You can think of your immune system as your body’s football coach and sleep as its halftime break.

Sleep Boosts T Cell Production

One way sleep helps the immune system is in how it fosters T Cell production. T Cells are white blood cells that play a critical part in the immune system’s response to viruses. Their activation is an important step in how the body handles invaders, with T Cells attacking and destroying virus-carrying cells.

Sleep Improves the Immune System’s Response to Threats

The immune system’s response time is also improved by getting a good night’s sleep. By completing the four sleep cycles, you’re supporting the release and production of cytokine, a multifaceted protein that helps the immune system quickly respond to antigens.

Cytokines have two priorities:

  • Promoting cell-to-cell communication.
  • Directing cells to head toward infections to counteract the issue.

Cover Coughs and Sneezes

  • Use Proper Hygiene Etiquette 

Sneezing or coughing directly into your elbow or better yet using a tissue to cover your nose and mouth can help prevent the spread of coronavirus. Be sure to throw away these used tissues immediately and then wash your hands thoroughly after exposure to any respiratory secretions. Avoid shaking hands; use fist or elbow bumps instead. Use your knuckles to hit elevator buttons etc. Carry paper towel or disposable gloves with you and use them to lift the gasoline pump dispenser, turn on lights in public spaces and to open doors, flush toilets, turn sinks on and off, etc. Open doors with your clothing covering legs, hips or closed fist if you forgot to bring paper towels/gloves. Use disinfectant wipes at stores and public spaces when they are available; if you plan to use a grocery cart bring wipes with you and wipe first.

Wear a Face Mask

  • Using a facemask

The extremely immunocompromised or people who show symptoms of COVID-19 may consider wearing a full face and eye mask with a 2-micron filter (e.g. N95) that does not allow the virus to exit or enter. Standard medical/surgical mouth masks still allow the virus to be breathed in or exhaled through the mask.  The only possible benefit of that basic mask would be that when an infected person coughs or sneezes, the distance that the virus travels out of the mask could be reduced and large mucus particles would be trapped inside the mask reducing some of the volume of virus that goes into air or on local surfaces.

Clean and Disinfect

Viruses can live on surfaces for up to 48 hours. In order to get rid of these viruses on those surfaces, we need to frequently clean and disinfect touched objects and surfaces using regular natural household cleaning spray or wipes.
