How can I stop the spread? For China and the WORLD !!!!



Monday, February 3, 2020

How can I stop the spread?1.    Wash your hands. Washing with soap and hot water for at least 20 seconds can help limit the spread of viruses.2.    Make sure not to touch your nose and eyes, covering your mouth when you cough and sneeze, and don’t go to work if you feel ill.USA and Other Countries READ:Says the CDC: “While the immediate risk of this new virus to the American public is believed to be low at this time, everyone can do their part to help us respond to this emerging public health threat... It’s currently flu and respiratory disease season and CDC recommends getting vaccinated, taking everyday preventive actions to stop the spread of germs, and taking flu antivirals if prescribed.”READ MORE >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

USA and Other Countries READ:Says the CDC: “While the immediate risk of this new virus to the American public is believed to be low at this time, everyone can do their part to help us respond to this emerging public health threat... It’s currently flu and respiratory disease season and CDC recommends getting vaccinated, taking everyday preventive actions to stop the spread of germs, and taking flu antivirals if prescribed.”If there’s an outbreak here, can I prevent contracting it by using a mask?There’s no conclusive answer.ABOUT MASKS WEAR ONE ANYWAY kn95 / n95 bestA mask can help, Saade said. Students at Miami University are already wearing them. But you need to make sure you’re wearing a mask correctly, so here’s how to do it.Even in enclosed spaces, disposable masks often don’t provide a tight fit, allowing small airborne particles to waft in through the openings. The masks themselves do block large droplets (from, say, a sneeze or a cough), meaning they can help you from spreading a disease, but they’re not nearly as effective at filtering out viruses in the air, according to NPR.If you want to get more heavy-duty, another option is an N95 respirator mask. But while they’re better than surgical masks, as the name suggests, they are only effective 95 percent of the time at catching particles as small as 0.3 microns (though the efficiency of N95 masks can vary significantly depending on the manufacturer), according to Slate. Coronaviruses in humans are between 0.1 and 0.2 microns large, meaning by themselves they can get through, but the viruses often travel on bits of mucus or other large particles that the mask can block.Will Purell help?


The CDC lists alcohol-based hand sanitizer as a precaution if soap and water is not available, but the FDA has demanded Purell-maker GOJO Industries stop claiming the hand sanitizer can combat the flu and other diseases.Should I just stay home?IN CHINA YES !!!!!!!!!!Follow all and stay HOME and follow real and government information in full. Stay in your homes !A,B,C,DA – Have been in close contact with WUHANB – A has encountered them in public but don’t know themC – Are in QuarantineD – Those that kept inside and do not go outOther Countries No. Unless you or someone around you has recently traveled to China, your risk of getting sick is low, according to local and state health officials.Should I travel? Should I avoid getting on a bus or a plane?You shouldn’t worry about traveling unless it’s to or from China. The Centers for Disease Control has issued a travel advisory urging Americans to avoid any non-essential trips to China, especially to Wuhan in Hubei Province.If you do travel to China, the CDC recommends talking to your health-care provider first, washing or sanitizing your hands often, and – especially if you have an underlying medical condition – avoiding sick people and animals (as well as animal markets and animal products).Should I stock up on antiviral medicine?There are no vaccines nor drugs specifically designed to treat the new strain of coronavirus. Some U.S. drugmakers have sent antiviral drugs used to treat HIV to China to assess their effectiveness, and a Chinese government panel has recommended that doctors treat coronavirus patients with an anti-HIV drug called Kaletra, the Wall Street Journal reports.
