The Coronavirus has been spreading like a virus would but the uncertainty and fear of the unknown is just as deadly and viral to the minds of human beings. We should do our own research on the latest info based on science instead of panicking over the uncontrollable situations.
- It will first infect the throat, so you’ll have a soar throat last 3/4 days.
- 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.
- With the pneumonia comes high fever and difficulty in breathing.
- The nasal congestion is not like the normal kind. You feel like you’re drowning.
Some excellent advice by Japanese doctors treating COVID-19 cases:
Everyone should ensure your mouth and 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.
The new Coronavirus may not show sign of infections 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 (Fibrosis is not reversible).
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 times, please self-check every morning in an environment with clean air.
So to sum up, drink plenty of water throughout the day, get plenty of sleep to boost your immune system, keep a social distance when going out (only if necessary), stay positive by generating healing thoughts in your mind 🙂
Take care everyone and may the world recover from this Coronavirus soon.
May the Masters watch over us and guide us through a turbulent period of time.
