We wish all of our USA friends a safe, happy and amazing Fourth of July weekend!
Please stay safe and make sure that you:
- Wash your hands with soap and water – the surface of any virus is lipid (fat), meaning it will break down in contact with soap and the rubbing of your hands, just like when you put dishwashing liquid on a drop of oil – it will break up the oil. Soap obliterates viruses.
- Use sanitizers when available, and do not touch your eyes, mouth, nose if you cannot be sure your hands are clean. The news has already told you, but ethanol sanitizers with at least a 60% alcohol content can be effective in preventing the spread.
- Keep a proper and safe distance away from each other. Listen to the rules of your state or country on how far you should be apart from each other.
- Even though some people do not like to wear one, masks can help prevent the spread of disease. Sure the COVID-19 virus may be smaller than the openings on the mask, but just remind yourself that when you cough or sneeze, and if you do have the virus, it will be mixed with your saliva and phlegm, which will not pass easily through the openings of the mask.
Also, you may be strong and have a good immune system, but do your parents, grandparents or someone you love that you come into contact with on a daily basis? You may increase their chances of getting sick if you don’t wear a mask. Even people with diabetes and heart disease may have compromised immune systems.
If you’re young and you have COVID-19, sure you may be able to get over it yourself, but is someone you care about that you are in close proximity to not strong enough? It’s more for them than for you.
Many countries in Asia have a habit of wearing masks when they are sick which started long before this pandemic. Compare the current coronavirus infection numbers between countries. Which ones are currently having fewer incidents and which ones are having alarmingly more and more?
Plus, as we speak, the scary part is that this virus is changing and adapting. It wants to survive and thrive at your expense and even your life. We may potentially see even younger groups become more severely infected.
Please, we do care about your health and safety. We hope to be with you for a very long time.
We will be back next week with more tips that we hope will keep you safe, healthy and AMAZING! Thank you very much for your support.
