We invite you to stay home! All data indicates that within the next weeks there will be an explosion of new coronavirus cases. And, in fact, right now as we speak, there are likely people infected with the coronavirus walking around without knowing it.
The data clearly shows from peer reviewed research studies, that people with the corona virus can be infecting others without knowing it for a period of between three to seven days before any symptoms whatsoever.
Then, there is a period of symptoms, which in many cases are as light as the common cold or even many times lighter. There are many people walking around thinking they have a cold, but in fact, they have the coronavirus. Of course, this is not everyone: many people actually do have a cold, we are still in the influence or cold season. However, because it is very hard to know from mild symptoms who has a cold and who has the coronavirus. It is very likely that many people who are going around thinking they have a cold actually have the coronavirus, and it lasts for at least 10 days from the first symptom. So, we have three to seven days before any symptom whatsoever, and then we have a period of 10 days from the first symptom until people are stopping as infective. Obviously, if someone is clearly sick with the coronavirus, they will be staying home or seeking treatment, but of the rest of the people who have coronavirus and think they just have a cold or some flu and continue to go back to work, continue to walk around, they will be infecting others for a period of 10 days from that first symptom. And then there’s mixed reports on this third period, the period of time from which people stop having symptoms and are still infected. Some scientific research studies have shown that the period of being infective is as long as two weeks – 14 days after the last symptom-. Other research studies have shown that at the end of the 10 day period from first symptom, even though people have the virus they may not be infective to others. However, from our point of view, given the cautionary principle, we would suggest an abundance of precaution and assume that there’s a period of about 28 days to feel completely safe from beginning of first symptom until the end of likely transmissibility.
Therefore, our recommendation to everyone right now is: Stay home!!!. I know this sounds draconian and I know this sounds abrupt and I know that sounds absurd in many ways, however, it is actually the best thing we can do to save other people’s lives and to give ourselves the best chance of not being exposed during the peak. You have already heard it, flatten the peak!
Let me explain what I mean: It is estimated that over the course of this 2020 year, between 40 to 80% of the worldwide population will be exposed to the coronavirus. Dr. Youngberg has said: I expect to be exposed, Dr. Campbell from London – leading researcher pulmonologist – has said: I expect to be exposed. So, let’s assume that at some point we will be exposed. The question is, when do you want to be exposed?. Ironically, last month would be one good time to be exposed, because you would have had attention and focus treatment of the highest degree. Another good time to be exposed is in eight months to a year, when there will likely be some higher degree of measures against the virus, such as proven retrovirals or possibly a vaccine. The best estimates on when a vaccine could come available is six to nine months, as the soonest it could be. What this indicates is that even if for personal reasons you choose not to be vaccinated, waiting until there is more immunity in the community to be going about our normal daily lives is the best defense against catching it and the opportunity to have the best treatment if you do catch it, because by then, significant amount of data and research will have shown, which are the most effective methods for helping combat this virus beyond the natural strategies we have been talking about all along (the core foundation)
At some point, this will turn into something very much like the flu, where we don’t need to worry about it and we don’t change our travel plans based on it being flu season. However, the difference is that today, this is not the case as the flu. This has very different applications for us right now than the flu. I repeat, this is not the flu!!!. There are major differences between this virus and the flu as mentioned in pior article, re-read that for details!
So, with an abundance of precaution, especially for those of you who have compromised immune systems, or other underlying conditions such as diabetes, metabolic disorder, heart disease, kidney disease or other significant risk factors that have been identified as being related to a higher seriousness of the disease, you would do best for optimizing the potential for your own health to stay home right now and self isolate. I know this is hard and this is something many of you will not want to do and others may not be able to fully do. However, it would be a good opportunity to contact your employer and see if there is something that is possible, or arrange your lifestyle to do that.
