Like a building rushing to be built – with a poor foundation ….

California, Oregon, Washington governors announce their own plans to restart their economies amid coronavirus

Fauci needs to ‘move along’ so US may open economy again, US rep says

Texas gov thinks ‘most states can reopen even sooner than later,’ ‘we don’t have to wait until May 1’

Dr. Oz suggests ways to reopen economy while protecting the vulnerableThere are legal concerns from coronavirus in business reopenings

Like a #building rushing to construct – with a #poor-foundation; it is only as #strong as the material it is built on. #Rushing the construction – using a #substandard-concrete-mix for the foundation – not bracing the #forms properly – #substituting-inferior-construction-grade-material to cut corners and save a buck – will only cause the building to #collapse during construction or after it is built.

The same things apply to #prematurely #reopening businesses when Mr Corona is not #completely-decimated. If short-cuts are taken by not waiting enough time for the proverbial CONCRETE to cure, the building will fall apart.

The long way around can be the short way home
Short cuts can deadly consequences

I do realize that the entire country is #anxious to get back to work and put the USA back to where it was before the #unwelcome-monster Mr. Corona came knocking. Now that we have this #killer/villain on the ropes, 3/4 of the way out the ring and loosing his balance, the last things we want to do is to #undue the #progress we have made and give him a chance to #regroup. We have to continue with #strong-jabs -#right-hooks -#upper-cuts and #round-house-punches until he is completely knocked out of the ring.

I am sure everyone had a cold once in their life and had a relapse because they rushed the cadence (healing process); the relapse cold was far worse than the first one. Let us not make that mistake.

I hope that all the #governors and the $president use #good-judgement, listen to the experts and do not #act-hastily. Cuomo (New Yor State) and some of his #counterparts are already talking about putting people back to work. I hope they know what they are doing.

I think the time has long past for all parties concerned to stop the name calling and #ball-breaking. All that $adolescent-behavior does is add fuel to the fire. They should be put their efforts into working together. Like the #Crusaders during in the #Holy-Wars; they put their weapons down on Friday night and went back to war Monday morning; they can do the same.

I would like to #give-tribute to all the #1st-responders that have #unselfishly put their lives on the line, doing their part (above and beyond the call of duty) to #SAVE-HUMANITY. Their #dedication can be compared to troops at the time of war, #deliberately, because of their #patriotism, walking into #hostile-enemy-territory, not knowing if they would #ever-came-back-alive.

The segment on 60 Minutes Sunday was #heart-wrenching. I ran out of handkerchiefs. Take the time to watch it.

Sorry about the advertising – I could not get around it.

Thank you is not enough.

There is not enough money in this world to compensate them for their dedication.

Pitch in, #play-by-the-rules, follow all the health #guidelines set by the government, pass this information around to everyone you know, together we can whip Mr. Coronavirus’s ass. It is going to take a team effort to #kill this #monster.

There is currently no vaccine to prevent #coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. However, as a reminder, CDC always recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, including:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Follow CDC’s recommendations for using a facemask.
    • CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19.
    • Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to  others. The use of facemasks is also crucial for health workers and people who are taking care of someone in close settings (at home or in a health care facility).
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
    • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.

HELPFUL INFORMATION: I have no idea if all of this information is 100% correct, but it can not hurt to implement it. Stanford hospital board internal message.

The new Coronavirus may not show sign of infection for many days. How can one know if he/she is infected? By the time they have fever and/or cough and go to the hospital, the lung is usually 50% Fibrosis and it’s too late.

Taiwan experts provide a simple self-check that we can do every morning. Take a deep breath and hold your breath for more than 10 seconds. If you complete it successfully without coughing, without discomfort, stiffness or tightness, etc., it proves there is no Fibrosis in the lungs, basically indicates no infection.

In critical time, please self-check every morning in an environment with clean air. Serious excellent advice by Japanese doctors treating COVID-19 cases:

Everyone should ensure your mouth & throat are moist, never dry. Take a few sips of water every 15 minutes at least. Why? Even if the virus gets into your mouth, drinking water or other liquids will wash them down through your throat and into the stomach. Once there, your stomach acid will kill all the virus. If you don’t drink enough water more regularly, the virus can enter your windpipe and into the lungs. That’s very dangerous. Please send and share this with family and friends.

Take care everyone and may the world recover from this Coronavirus soon. IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT – CORONAVIRUS

1. If you have a runny nose and sputum, you have a common cold

2. Coronavirus pneumonia is a dry cough with no runny nose.

3. This new virus is not heat-resistant and will be killed by a temperature of just 26/27 degrees. It hates the Sun.

4. If someone sneezes with it, it takes about 10 feet before it drops to the ground and is no longer airborne.

5. If it drops on a metal surface it will live for at least 12 hours – so if you come into contact with any metal surface – wash your hands as soon as you can with a bacterial soap.

6. On fabric it can survive for 6-12 hours. normal laundry detergent will kill it.

7. Drinking warm water is effective for all viruses. Try not to drink liquids with ice.

8. Wash your hands frequently as the virus can only live on your hands for 5-10 minutes, but – a lot can happen during that time – you can rub your eyes, pick your nose unwittingly and so on.

9. You should also gargle as a prevention. A simple solution of salt in warm water will suffice.

10. Can’t emphasis enough – drink plenty of water!


1. It will first infect the throat, so you’ll have a sore throat lasting 3/4 days

2. The virus then blends into a nasal fluid that enters the trachea and then the lungs, causing pneumonia. This takes about 5/6 days further.

3. With the pneumonia comes high fever and difficulty in breathing.

4. The nasal congestion is not like the normal kind. You feel like you’re drowning. It’s imperative you then seek immediate attention.


Let us all pull in the same direction and kick Mr. Corona’s ass.
