Updates on the Coronavirus & Being positive for a better immune system!

Take this seriously. 

The virus is not stopped by panic, but by intelligence.

The latest Super Coronavirus detailed Advice, very detailed Virus Detection info, testing info, & very, very detailed Prevention tips:

We’ve been watching COVID-19 very closely at Entertainment & Sports Today & Entertainment Today and we are committed to your health, resilience and independence (a.k.a. we really don’t want you going to the hospital).
For those over 50 years old you need to understand and use the below advice more than people under 50, and people of all ages must avoid travel by airplane!
Although Entertainment & Sports Today & Entertainment Today is not medically trained to provide advice, we are happy to receive and transmit this clear, simple and accessible information that accurately describes what the virus is like and how it can be prevented.
Here’s some great advice we found from doctors on the front line:

Virus Detection:

  • The simplest way to distinguish Coronavirus from a Common Cold is that the COVID-19 infection does not cause a cold nose or cough with cold, but it does create a dry and rough cough.
  • The virus is typically first installed in the throat causing inflammation and a feeling of dryness. This symptom can last between 3 and 4 days.
  • The virus typically then travels through the moisture present in the airways, goes down to the trachea and installs in the lungs, causing pneumonia that lasts about 5 or 6 days.
  • Pneumonia manifests with a high fever and difficulty breathing. The Common Cold is not accompanied, but there may be a choking sensation. In this case, the doctor should be called immediately.
  • Experts suggest doing this simple verification every morning: Breathe in deeply and hold your breath for 10 seconds.  If this can be done without coughing, without difficulty, this shows that there is no fibrosis in the lungs, indicating the absence of infection.  It is strongly recommended to do this control every morning.

Prevention:

  • The virus hates heat and dies if it is exposed to temperatures greater than 80°F (27°C). Therefore hot drinks such as infusions, broths or simply hot water should be consumed abundantly during the day.  These hot liquids kill the virus and are easy to ingest.
  • Avoid drinking ice water or drinks with ice cubes.
  • Ensure that your mouth and throat are always wet, never DRY. You should drink a sip of water at least every 15 minutes. WHY?  Even when the virus enters water or other liquids through the mouth, it will get flushed through the esophagus directly into the stomach where gastric acids destroy the virus. If there is not enough water, the virus can pass into the trachea and from there to the lungs, where it is very dangerous.
  • For those who can, sunbathe. The Sun’s UV rays kill the virus and the vitamin D is good for you.  
  • The Coronavirus has a large size (diameter of 400-500 nanometers) so any face mask can stop it, no special face masks are needed in daily life.
  • If an infected person sneezes near us, stay 10 feet (3.3 meters) away to allow the virus fall to the ground and prevent it from falling on you.
  •  When the virus is on hard surfaces, it survives about 12 hours, therefore when hard surfaces such as doors, appliances, railings, etc. are touched, hands should be washed thoroughly and/or disinfected with alcoholic gel.
  •  The virus can live nested in clothes and tissues between 6 and 12 hours. Common detergents can kill it. Things that cannot be washed should be exposed to the Sun and the virus will die.
  •  The transmission of the virus usually occurs by direct infection, touching fabrics, tissues or materials on which the virus is present. 
  • Washing your hands is essential. So go to the nearest sink every chance you get.
  • The virus survives on our hands for only about 10 minutes. In that time many things can happen, rubbing the eyes, touching the nose or lips. This allows the virus to enter your throat. Therefore, for your good and the good of all, wash your hands very often and disinfect them.
  • You can gargle with disinfectant solutions (i.e. Listerine or Hydrogen Peroxide) that eliminate or minimize the amount of virus that can enter the throat. Doing so removes the virus before it goes down to the trachea and then to the lungs.
  •  Disinfect things touched often: cellphone, keyboard, mouse, car steering wheel, door handles, etc
Please share this information with family, friends and acquaintances. We must take care of ourselves, for our good and the good of others. Below is a chart that compares this Virus to the Common Cold and Flu:  
What you need to know – What is the coronavirus?

An outbreak of the new coronavirus called COVID‐19 began in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China in December 2019. The virus causes respiratory illness and has infected thousands worldwide. Cases have been reported in the United States.

What are the symptoms?

Common signs of infection include respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath and difficulty breathing.

How does it spread?

The virus spreads through the air from coughing and sneezing and also from close personal contact like touching or shaking hands.

How to help prevent the spread of coronavirus

  • Wash your hands often
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth
  • When you sneeze, cover your nose and mouth with a tissue
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects
  • Drink plenty of fluids
  • Aim for eight hours of sleep each night
  • Eat a well-balanced diet

How can you protect yourself or others from COVID‐19?

Although there are currently no vaccines available to protect against human coronavirus infection, you may be able to reduce your risk of infection by washing your hands often; avoiding touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands; and avoiding close contact with people who are sick. If you have cold-like symptoms, as a courtesy to your co-workers and others, please remain at home while you are sick. If you share a workstation or equipment with others, consider wiping it down with disinfectant wipes after use. For information about hand washing, see the CDC’s Clean Hands Save Lives website.

What should you do if you suspect you or someone else has contracted COVID‐19?

Most people with common human coronavirus illness will recover on their own. Although there are no specific treatments for illnesses caused by human coronaviruses, you can take the following actions to help relieve symptoms if you are mildly sick:

  • Take pain and fever medications. Ask your pharmacist how they may interact with any medications you currently take. Caution: The CDC and American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommend not giving aspirin to children.
  • Use a room humidifier or take a hot shower to help ease a sore throat and cough.
  • Drink plenty of liquids.
  • Stay home and rest.

If you are concerned about your symptoms, please call your local health care provider. Telemedicine is a good first line of defense in order to limit potential exposure in a waiting room. CVS Health® offers Video Visits* in 40 states and Washington, D.C.

Who should be tested for COVID‐19?

The CDC recommends that anyone with symptoms of COVID-19, returning from a Centers for Disease Control designated Level 2 or Level 3 advisory area, or who has been in contact with someone who is suspected or confirmed of having the coronavirus within the last 14 days should be tested.

If you suspect that you have contracted COVID‐19, where can you go to be tested?

The U.S Food and Drug Administration has issued an emergency use authorization (EUA) to enable emergency use of the CDC’s 2019-nCoV Real‐Time RT‐PCR Diagnostic Panel. This authorization allows the use of the test at any CDC‐qualified lab in the U.S.

How can I access COVID-19 testing?

Good Advice on Corona, and a great story on the Virus from one of our on-air TV  reporters: Bernie Hiller, who is also the Founder, Director, and CEO of The Bernard Hiller Coaching & Success Studio:
A CORONA “Blessing” Story – With so much uncertainly and fear in the world right now, I wanted to share with you a story that I saw out of Italy. A priest said that he saw this situation in a way as a “blessing.” He said “This tragedy makes us realize how fragile life is and that we must live every moment as though it was our last. Life goes too fast, you must look around and spend it with those you love.”
This crisis also makes us realize just how much we affect each other. Maybe we could infect each other with more love, kindness and understanding, what a better world this would become. It is certain, that we need each other to survive and thrive.” -Those were powerful words that touched my soul.-   All of us at Entertainment & Sports Today & Entertainment Today agree with these feelings and thoughts 100% – Make the best of everyday of your life! – so Please Share this !

GOOD ADVICE REGARDING CORONAVIRUS FROM James Robb, MD FCAP , by our Nurse Jackie :
The below article is from our news reporter Jacqueline Murphy – who not only also is an actress that plays a Nurse on TV and in the movies- but is also a real Nurse in real life! So we want to give a special thanks to our Nurse Jackie!
 
Jackie has played a nurse on the hit Soap Opera “All My Children” on ABC TV, and has appeared in many TV shows, and movies with many big stars like Tom Cruise, Tom Selleck, Ted Danson, and Michael Keaton! We are now proud to have her as one of our reporters !
 
So below is the article she found that is written in the words of Dr. James Robb, that we hope will help all of you:
 
As some of you may recall, when I was a professor of pathology at the University of California San Diego, one of the first molecular virologists in the world to work on coronaviruses (the 1970s). I was the first to demonstrate the number of genes the virus contained. Since then, I have kept up with the coronavirus field and its multiple clinical transfers into the human population (e.g., SARS, MERS), from different animal sources.
 
The current projections for its expansion in the US are only probable, due to continued insufficient worldwide data, but it is most likely to be widespread in the US by mid to late March and April.
 
Here is what I have done and the precautions that I take and will take. These are the same precautions I currently use during our influenza seasons, except for the mask and gloves.:
 
1) NO HANDSHAKING! Use a fist bump, slight bow, elbow bump, etc.
2) Use ONLY your knuckle to touch light switches. elevator buttons, etc.. Lift the gasoline dispenser with a paper towel or use a disposable glove.
3) Open doors with your closed fist or hip – do not grasp the handle with your hand, unless there is no other way to open the door. Especially important on bathroom and post office/commercial doors.
4) Use disinfectant wipes at the stores when they are available, including wiping the handle and child seat in grocery carts.
5) Wash your hands with soap for 10-20 seconds and/or use a greater than 60% alcohol-based hand sanitizer whenever you return home from ANY activity that involves locations where other people have been.
6) Keep a bottle of sanitizer available at each of your home’s entrances. AND in your car for use after getting gas or touching other contaminated objects when you can’t immediately wash your hands.
7) If possible, cough or sneeze into a disposable tissue and discard. Use your elbow only if you have to. The clothing on your elbow will contain infectious virus that can be passed on for up to a week or more!
 
What I have stocked in preparation for the pandemic spread to the US:
 
1) Latex or nitrile latex disposable gloves for use when going shopping, using the gasoline pump, and all other outside activity when you come in contact with contaminated areas.
Note: This virus is spread in large droplets by coughing and sneezing. This means that the air will not infect you! BUT all the surfaces where these droplets land are infectious for about a week on average – everything that is associated with infected people will be contaminated and potentially infectious. The virus is on surfaces and you will not be infected unless your unprotected face is directly coughed or sneezed upon.
This virus only has cell receptors for lung cells (it only infects your lungs) The only way for the virus to infect you is through your nose or mouth via your hands or an infected cough or sneeze onto or into your nose or mouth.
2) Stock up now with disposable surgical masks and use them to prevent you from touching your nose and/or mouth (We touch our nose/mouth 90X/day without knowing it!). This is the only way this virus can infect you – it is lung-specific. The mask will not prevent the virus in a direct sneeze from getting into your nose or mouth – it is only to keep you from touching your nose or mouth.
3) Stock up now with hand sanitizers and latex/nitrile gloves (get the appropriate sizes for your family). The hand sanitizers must be alcohol-based and greater than 60% alcohol to be effective.
4) Stock up now with zinc lozenges. These lozenges have been proven to be effective in blocking coronavirus (and most other viruses) from multiplying in your throat and nasopharynx. Use as directed several times each day when you begin to feel ANY “cold-like” symptoms beginning. It is best to lie down and let the lozenge dissolve in the back of your throat and nasopharynx. Cold-Eeze lozenges is one brand available, but there are other brands available.
 
I, as many others do, hope that this pandemic will be reasonably contained, BUT I personally do not think it will be. Humans have never seen this (edited: animal)-associated virus before and have no internal defense against it.
 
Tremendous worldwide efforts are being made to understand the molecular and clinical virology of this virus. Unbelievable molecular knowledge about the genomics, structure, and virulence of this virus has already been achieved. BUT, there will be NO drugs or vaccines available this year to protect us or limit the infection within us. Only symptomatic support is available.
 
I hope these personal thoughts will be helpful during this potentially catastrophic pandemic. You are welcome to share.
Good luck to all of us!
James Robb, MD FCAP
