    Coronavirus, good advice.

    Hello all,

    Survival advice below , pass it on to as many as you can .Stay safe/
    Dave
    Covid-19 advice given to NHS hospital staff 28.03.2020

    Please share with family, friends and work colleagues.

    Virus Detection:
    The simplest way to distinguish Coronavirus from a Common Cold is that the COVID-19 infection does not cause a cold nose or cough with cold, but it does create a dry and rough cough. The virus is typically first installed in the throat causing inflammation and a feeling of dryness. This symptom can last between 3 and 4 days. The virus typically then travels through the moisture present in the airways, goes down to the trachea and installs in the lungs, causing pneumonia that lasts about 5 or 6 days. Pneumonia manifests with a high fever and difficulty breathing.

    The Common Cold is not accompanied, but there may be a choking sensation. In this case, the doctor should be called immediately.

    Experts suggest doing this simple verification every morning:
    Breathe in deeply and hold your breath for 10 seconds. If this can be done without coughing, without difficulty, this shows that there is no fibrosis in the lungs, indicating the absence of infection. It is recommended to do this control every morning to help detect infection.

    Prevention:
    The virus hates heat and dies if it is exposed to temperatures greater than 80F (27C). Therefore hot drinks such as infusions, broths or simply hot water should be consumed abundantly during the day. These hot liquids kill the virus and are easy to ingest.

    Avoid drinking ice water or drinks with ice cubes. Ensure that your mouth and throat are always wet, never DRY. You should drink a sip of water at least every 15 minutes. WHY? Even when the virus enters water or other liquids through the mouth, it will get flushed through the oesophagus directly into the stomach where gastric acids destroy the virus. If there is not enough water, the virus can pass into the trachea and from there to the lungs, where it is very dangerous.

    For those who can, sunbathe. The Sun's UV rays kill the virus and the vitamin D is good for you. The Coronavirus has a large size (diameter of 400-500 nanometers) so face masks can stop it, no special face masks are needed in daily life. If an infected person sneezes nearby, stay 10 feet (3.3 meters) away to allow the virus fall to the ground and prevent it from falling on you. When the virus is on hard surfaces, it survives about 12 hours, therefore when hard surfaces such as doors, appliances, railings, etc. are touched, hands should be washed thoroughly and/or disinfected with alcoholic gel The virus can live nested in clothes and tissues between 6 and 12 hours. Common detergents can kill it.
    Things that cannot be washed should be exposed to the Sun and the virus will die. The transmission of the virus usually occurs by direct infection, touching fabrics, tissues or materials on which the virus is present.

    Washing your hands is essential. The virus survives on our hands for only about 10 minutes. In that time many things can happen, rubbing the eyes, touching the nose or lips. This allows the virus to enter your throat. Therefore, for your good and the good of all, wash your hands very often and disinfect them.

    You can gargle with disinfectant solutions (i.e. Listerine or Hydrogen Peroxide) that eliminate or minimize the amount of virus that can enter the throat. Doing so removes the virus before it goes down to the trachea and then to the lungs.

    Disinfect things touched often: mobile phone, keyboard, mouse, car steering wheel, door handles, etc ...

    Abbo, I appreciate that you have posted this with the best of intentions. I get regular updates from the police on a whole variety of things, including scams and false information. It may well be that much of your post is correct but consider this:-

    Normal body temperature is 37 degrees celsius

    Prevention:
    The virus hates heat and dies if it is exposed to temperatures greater than 80F (27C). Therefore hot drinks such as infusions, broths or simply hot water should be consumed abundantly during the day. These hot liquids kill the virus and are easy to ingest.

    If the text is correct, the virus would not survive in the body and there would be no pandemic. If only this was the case.

    Stay safe.

    Wokes, you are correct in your observation, I think this may have been a typo.

    The body temperature is 36/37 degrees centigrade, depending on your genda or age. if your temperature rises to 42 degrees you are in serious trouble with death not to far away. This is why it is imperative that in very warm weather, or during intense exercise, drinking cool fluids regularly is critical. Drinking Tea and Coffee are not good to drink in extreme heat as they act as a diuretic. Alcohol also falls into this category. For each degree that your body temperature increases your efficiency diminishes by 20%.

    The boiling point of water is 100 degrees centigrade, and we all know that a cup of tea or coffee made at this temperature would be impossible to drink. However, with in a few minutes the liquid would be possible to sip and then drink. At this time of year perhaps we should follow these rules.

    Keep safe everyone.

    It is off course possible that some of this article is fiction. what I have just posted is fact.
