Now this is a timely article!

It discusses how a hospital in Hong Kong, faced with many people with coronavirus, stayed safe. No health care worker was contaminated while they used basic precautions despite seeing a lot of people with the virus.

Researchers from Queen Mary Hospital in Hong Kong reported that zero healthcare workers contracted coronavirus (COVID-19) and no hospital-acquired infections were identified after the first six weeks of the outbreak, even as the health system tested 1,275 suspected cases and treated 42 active confirmed cases of COVID-19. Eleven healthcare workers, out of 413 involved in treating confirmed cases, had unprotected exposure and were quarantined for 14 days. None became ill.
What did they do?
- they washed their hands 'vigilantly'
- they used masks in the hospital
- they isolated patients; in an airborne infection isolation room, or, in a few cases, with at least a meter of space between patients on a ward
- they communicated; a lot, in different ways about what worked
- they checked that each person was doing what worked e.g. hand-washing
- they increased the use of personal protective equipment when doing they type of hospital procedures that we won't be doing at home, e.g. open suctioning

These are all, perhaps with the exception, of the last, things we can each do if we feel the need.
Note that a meter of space between people was enough to prevent spread. Space is our friend here. I am thinking that this includes not gathering in groups if the virus becomes widespread until things settle down.
Note also, that people in this hospital took care of patients who were sick, all while not becoming sick themselves. They successfully sorted out who had the virus and who did not. They did a lot of testing for the virus. It didn't seem to spread much by touch; one window bench had the virus amongst a variety of places tested. Saliva did seem to spread the virus and one shared pot spread to a lot of people. There is a lot to learn here for any of us. They were able to care for and communicate with sick people safely.

Here is a bit about what to avoid:
Of the locally acquired cases, 28 came from eight family clusters with 11 cases likely transmitted during a gathering for “hot pot,” where utensils contaminated with saliva were coming led in shared pots. This family included a 91-year-old woman and a child who both tested positive for the virus but did not display symptoms.
Wow! A 91 year old woman and a child had the virus but did NOT get ill! Perhaps we'll all survive this yet <3

So, wash your hands (a lot), use space to create a safe zone if needed, DON'T share utensils, pots etc with a sick person, i.e. do whatever you need to do to avoid saliva and other secretions from a sick person, continue to communicate + check that all family members are doing the above, and let the health professionals take it from there. Is this beginning to sound a lot like what all our mamas tell us to do every day?

This sounds doable to me.

There seemed to have been and still is some misinformation (propaganda?) against the Chinese. It bordered almost on racism for me in some cases. (And I know very well that the Chinese communist regime is authoritarian and very bad, though). In Western (alternative and mainstream) media it sometimes felt like the people were dropping dead in numbers on the streets. I never believed that fully.

Here is another positive story from Wuhan (the 'epi-center') from a few days ago:


Tell this to the many fear mongers!

And there it is - common sense wins out again. When I was a child, the person who was sick stayed in their room and meals were brought to them. Meals were nourishing soups, as well as juice, water and 7-Up. Medicine included aspirin and Vicks Vapo-rub. Did not have lysol spray then, but did have the liquid that you mixed with water for cleaning. Thinking back, I don't recall my mom getting sick - tired, yes, but not sick.

Comparing coronavirus to other illnesses like typical flu and 1918 flu with infection numbers, death numbers and death rates, risk factors which spread the illness and make it worse, info on masks, links to FEMA and WHO info, Reddit forum and discord server links, treatment and prevention. http://wordsalad.info/corona.html

More quarantine tips here at the main page, if you get forcibly quarantined: http://wordsalad.info

Weird domain, but good solid info and lots of it. Yes I made this, but this is the most complete summary of bug in info I've ever seen, so you don't have to spend 30 hours finding information on dozens of sites. I have many years experience of camping and power outages and even being homeless. I don't think the power will go out during this time but I think we will see supply problems all over the world due to many countries dependence on Chinese products.

So grandma was right, chicken soup works well, though I don't know why, along with several other ideas.

Don't forget to bookmark this.

No fear. I hope this will ease peoples' fears. Being dead was the most beautiful, wonderful experience I've ever had, so there must be a reason I remembered it, perhaps to share my experience. Even some of my meditation sessions reconnect me to All That Is, the Power of Pure Love blowing through my soul. It's hard to describe how safe and loved I felt. And while I look forward to translating onward, I do believe I still have work to do on earth. I think many of us here will survive this. We will get more instructions when the time is right. This is a power struggle at the highest levels, the intent is to corrupt the Creator herself. But since I've felt the Love of the Creator, I know nothing can stop the Love. Nothing. That doesn't mean there will not be hardship.

"Struggle is a given, pain is not." How you deal with the struggle is up to you.

I don't want to turn this into a doom and gloom post, so for more coronavirus updates see this Discord server: https://discord.gg/2sEpSzX. It's a chat server but we post pictures and links too.


Namaste.

I'm a long-time fan of Donna Eden and her bodywork routines. She and her husband came out with some extra tweaks to help the immune system. Although I'm seeing some panic locally, I'm also seeing people turning to alternative ideas. Yea! Perhaps one of the changes coming out of this virus concern is that people take more responsibility for themselves.
