Research from China is shedding new light and understanding on the behavior of the COVID-19 virus. The following information was translated and shared from medical colleagues in Europe to prevent further spread and devastation in communities around the world.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reports that the virus is most commonly transmitted from person-to-person contact, and most contagious when symptoms peak. It is spreading easily AND sustainably (continuous without stopping).
Autopsy reports performed in China show that COVID-19 may remain in the throat for 3 to 4 days before entering the Lungs. When the virus progresses further into the lungs it obstructs vital respiratory pathways with thick mucus that solidifies.
Prevention techniques may significantly reduce transmission and severity of COVID-19.
Follow the CDC recommendations, in addition to gargling daily with an antiseptic (warm water with salt, vinegar, garlic or lemon), avoid person-to-person contact, sip warm water or tea every 20 minutes to moisten mouth and wash the virus into the stomach where gastric juices will neutrilize it. Upon entering your home, immediately your remove clothes, shower with soap that foams and wash all clothing (detergents can kill the virus). Please share, implement and practice this information to protect yourself and others.
If you feel initial symptoms, chills, fever, sore throat, headache, or fatigue, Attack the virus and fight back immediately.
Follow the recommendations above and contact a licensed acupuncturist near you. Online appointments available starting March 30th.
