A Two-Week Coronavirus Hangover Ahead?
Alex Reid here with your Monday roundup.
What the hell just happened over the past week or two?
It feels like the world has been sipping on spiked punch for far too long.
Now, the party has come to a screeching halt...
And everyone braces for a potential two-week (or longer!) coronavirus hangover.
As whispers of a mandatory two-week quarantine trail around Washington…
Folks have stocked their cupboards, filled their gas tanks, and shut their doors.
Even the Clear Health Now headquarters is a ghost town!
As my team is happily tucked away in their homes, working 100% remote...
We watch history unfold before our very eyes.
But one man down in Kentucky hasn’t been so compliant…
Despite medical advice, he refused to quarantine himself after testing positive for coronavirus.
But Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear had zero tolerance—
And deputies imposed “forced isolation.”
Governor Beshear shared his concerns at a recent conference:
It's a step I hoped that I'd never have to take. But I can't allow one person who we know has this virus to refuse to protect their neighbors.
Three words for Governor Beshear: Good for you!
When it comes to public health and safety, we can leave no room for negligence.
Not only can the virus transmit through direct contact, but it's also airborne.
A coronavirus positive person could walk in a room, cough, and leave...
But if you enter that same (empty) room 30 minutes later, you could still potentially catch the virus.
According to a recent study by scientists at the National Institutes of Health, Princeton University, and UCLA, the virus could remain in the air for up to three hours.
And it could survive on some surfaces for two to three days. For these reasons, we simply can’t have infected people galavanting around town amongst the general public.
While researchers admit the study doesn’t explain why the coronavirus is spreading so quickly, they’re shocked by its sustainability.
They found the virus could survive for up to 4 hours on copper, as many as 24 hours on cardboard, and two to three days on plastic and stainless steel.
So take a good look at your surroundings. Those beautiful stainless-steel appliances you have—
Could be housing coronavirus for up to three days!
So what has America done in response to the crisis?
Congress passed a whopping $8.3 billion emergency bill. These funds are designated to things like “developing vaccines, disease surveillance, and disaster loans.”
But we forgot one thing…
Protective gear is scarce for them…
We have to protect the folks who are making initial contact with the infected.
Last week, ProPublica reported:
Firefighters, paramedics and emergency medical technicians on the front lines are desperate for such equipment. Some EMTs are begging for masks at local hospitals. Others are rationing gowns and face shields.
In response, the International Association of Fire Fighters submitted letters to lawmakers begging for more resources.
In current days, when folks feel confused—
Maybe even overlooked… or anxious... as we all wait in our homes...
The best way to get through this is together!
So, if you’re looking to take off the edge, our sister company, Bambu Naturals, offers an all-natural comound that our team uses to manage stress.
Backed by 1,019 scientific studies, some call it the all-natural “stress crusher.”
