Please yourself if you read this or not, but I believe the more information we can get the better.


From member of the Stanford hospital board. This is their feedback for now on Corona virus: The new Coronavirus may not show sign of infection for many days. How can one know if he/she is infected? By the time they have fever and/or cough and go to the hospital, the lung is usually 50% Fibrosis and it's too late. Taiwan experts provide a simple self-check that we can do every morning. Take a deep breath and hold your breath for more than 10 seconds. If you complete it successfully without coughing, without discomfort, stiffness or tightness, etc., it proves there is no Fibrosis in the lungs, basically indicates no infection. In critical time, please self-check every morning in an environment with clean air. Serious excellent advice by Japanese doctors treating COVID-19 cases: Everyone should ensure your mouth & throat are moist, never dry. Take a few sips of water every 15 minutes at least. Why? Even if the virus gets into your mouth, drinking water or other liquids will wash them down through your throat and into the stomach. Once there, your stomach acid will kill all the virus. If you don't drink enough water more regularly, the virus can enter your windpipe and into the lungs. That's very dangerous. Please send and share this with family and friends. Take care everyone and may the world recover from this Coronavirus soon. IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT - CORONAVIRUS 1. If you have a runny nose and sputum, you have a common cold 2. Coronavirus pneumonia is a dry cough with no runny nose. 3. This new virus is not heat-resistant and will be killed by a temperature of just 26/27 degrees. It hates the Sun. 4. If someone sneezes with it, it takes about 10 feet before it drops to the ground and is no longer airborne. 5. If it drops on a metal surface it will live for at least 12 hours - so if you come into contact with any metal surface - wash your hands as soon as you can with a bacterial soap. 6. On fabric it can survive for 6-12 hours. normal laundry detergent will kill it. 7. Drinking warm water is effective for all viruses. Try not to drink liquids with ice. 8. Wash your hands frequently as the virus can only live on your hands for 5-10 minutes, but - a lot can happen during that time - you can rub your eyes, pick your nose unwittingly and so on. 9. You should also gargle as a prevention. A simple solution of salt in warm water will suffice. 10. Can't emphasis enough - drink plenty of water! THE SYMPTOMS 1. It will first infect the throat, so you'll have a sore throat lasting 3/4 days 2. The virus then blends into a nasal fluid that enters the trachea and then the lungs, causing pneumonia. This takes about 5/6 days further. 3. With the pneumonia comes high fever and difficulty in breathing. 4. The nasal congestion is not like the normal kind. You feel like you're drowning. It's imperative you then seek immediate attention.

SHARE WITH FAMILY and FRIENDS

It was shared to me Dawn. Currently Wait Disney World, Universal Studios and Sea World are closing on Sunday for at least 2 weeks. Trump is, we understand reviewing air travel to the US from the UK now. We have guests enquiring about cancelling bookings with us (totally understandably too) so it's a big mess at present and will likely get worse before it gets better.

I don’t think we’ve seen anything yet.

Trump doesn't project a good example. From BBC news page
…………….
Mr Trump, 73, said he did not need to self-isolate despite meeting at least one person, a Brazilian official he met at Mar-a-Lago, who has the coronavirus.

"I don't have any of the symptoms," Mr Trump told reporters when asked why he has not been tested.

But after a barrage of further questions, the president said he would get tested "fairly soon".

"I didn't say I wasn't going to be tested," he said.

Trump’s not looking good, either physically nor on the run up to election. Stock market down, Coronavirus on rampage, refusal to get tested....

Global airline industry is also in a dark place according to the news British Airways is on the brink of being in major trouble.
The next 6 months could have a major global impact on the rest of this decade potentially.

Yes. I know. I think we’re teetering on the brink of something no-one can imagine.

Stay safe, everyone.

Most Airlines , are like most people Steve, living on a "Hand-to-mouth" basis. It doesn't take very much to kill the equilibrium.

It is something no-one dared to imagine.

While the media are doing their best to help create widespread panic it's not going to get better any time soon

Edit : For clarification - The claims here have been debunked and so cannot be any supported for any further so any recognition of them has to be withdrawn. It is flawed and unproven advice.

I fear our government is conducting a social experiment based upon scientific analysis from decades ago. It predicates that a virus will be spread and does not assume anything can or will be done to prevent it’s spread. Other countries are attempting to stop it in its tracks, although removing it entirely is all but impossible. We and Germany will be left with a rampant infection for many many months and so will exclude us from world travel because other areas have become all but clean. We will be pariahs on the world stage while so called herd immunity is created.
There are of course scientific arguments to allow this strategy.
It seems to me government has already given up in its first duty to protect each and every citizen. They have abdicated any and all responsibility to the scientists. Why?
They have already been criticised by the WHO for inactivity. Other countries are acting when the severity is seen. Will it be done too late here? Will they continue to twiddle thumbs to benefit big business and the wealthy or will they act decisively and soon for all our sakes?
