I didn’t want to get to this point where I have to make an article about the coronavirus but I sense that a lot of people are freaking out. You may not be freaking out physically but you are probably freaking out internally. So I want to ease your mind with this article.
In this article we are going to discuss two topics: 1. What is the coronavirus and is it that serious? 2. How to prepare for it.
What Is The Coronavirus(COVID-19)?
Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Respiratory Syndrome and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome. It’s called COVID-19 because it’s new version of the virus not yet discovered in humans in 2019. The coronavirus is nothing new, it’s been around for centuries. If you go look at lysol wipes or some household spray, you will see that it says: “prevents coronavirus.” So this virus isn’t new. These companies have been around for centuries.
Common Signs Of Virus:
Common signs of infection include respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. In more severe cases, infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure and even death.
Doesn’t the common signs sound like one of those erectile disfunction commercials? Where they advertise that this pill will solve your erectile disfunction but it could cause so many other problems. So the coronavirus is just like the flu.
Look At The Fact
Everyone is so worried about dying from the coronavirus but so many people die from many other things every year. Let’s take a look at some statistics from 2017 deaths from IHME, Global Burden Of Disease:
Do you see coronavirus on this list? Nope. No matter what list you look up, heart diseases will always be the one to take the cake. Do you know what most heart diseases stem from? Bad health habits like smoking, drinking, eating unhealthy fried foods, and lack of exercise. Your daily lifestyle could be more infectious than the coronavirus.
Now let’s take a look at the statistics on the coronavirus that has been updated as of 3/21/20:
As you can see in the total cases compared to the total deaths, most people who have gotten the virus have recovered from it. The total deaths from this virus won’t even make the Global Burden Of Disease graph. There is a lot of cases but the death rate from it is super low. You would have a better chance of surviving the coronavirus than heart disease or type 2 diabetes. 80% of the cases who got the coronavirus recovered without special treatment. So there really is nothing to worry about.
How To Prepare For The Coronavirus?
The coronavirus is just like the flu. There is more than 59,000 deaths from the flu every year alone. How does one prevent the virus? Practice good hygiene, by washing your hands every couple hours. The virus is not airborne, so wearing a mask is not to stop you from breathing in the virus. The mask is so you don’t touch your face and put the virus in your body. Unlike the normal flu where it can stay on surfaces for 30 minutes, the coronavirus can stay on surfaces for up to 3 hours. That is why it’s important to keep areas that are being used often clean. It’s ideal to have cleaning wipes and sprays to kill the germs. People should be practicing cleanliness all the time, not just only when a virus sweeps the nation.
Here’s the best way you can prepare for this coronavirus:
The best way to prepare for this virus is by strengthening your immune system. How does one strengthen their immune system? By eating immune boosting foods like fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts, and citrusy teas. It’s crazy because it’s starting to sound cliche that a healthy diet literally prevents all premature death even things like cancer. It’s true though. I have NOT been sick in over two years and my secret to not getting sick was from eating healthy foods 90% of the time. I stayed away from sugary drinks, red meat, white bread, fruit juices, sweetened breakfast cereals, fried food like burgers, pastries, cookies, cakes, and high fructose corn syrup. Basically all foods that are processed. All these unhealthy foods weaken your immune system and make you highly susceptible to illnesses.
Who Is The Most Susceptible To The Virus?
People with weak immune systems like elderly folks are the one’s who are most susceptible to the coronavirus. Also the folks with diabetes, heart disease, and compromised immune system are more susceptible to the virus. Right now is most important time to stay practicing good healthy habits by eating enlivening foods, like foods from the earth, and get daily exercise. After this pandemic, then you can go back to your old habits. But for now, if you want to survive and thrive through this pandemic, you need to practice good healthy habits. Exercise regularly, eat healthy, get adequate amount of sleep, limit your alcohol consumption and limit your smoking habits. This will all help not get the coronavirus and if you do, you will recover very quickly.
