    My DIL just texted me this~

    Doctors are reporting they now understand the behavior of the COVID 19 virus due to autopsies that they have carried out. This virus is characterized by obstructing respiratory pathways with thick mucus that solidifies and blocks the airways and lungs. So they have discovered that in order to apply a medicine you have to open and unblock these airways so that the treatment can be used to take effect however all of this takes a number of days. Their recommendations for what you can do to safeguard yourself are ...

    1) Drink lots of hot liquids - coffees, soups, teas, warm water. In addition take a sip of warm water every 20 minutes bc this keeps your mouth moist and washes any of the virus that’s entered your mouth into your stomach where your gastric juices will neutralize it before it can get to the lungs.
    2) Gargle with an antiseptic and warm water like vinegar or salt or lemon every day if possible
    3) The virus attaches itself to hair and clothes. And detergent or soap kills it but you must take bath or shower when you get in from the street. Avoid sitting down in your home and go straight to the shower. If you cannot wash your clothes daily, hang them in sunlight which also helps to neutralize the virus
    4) Wash metallic surfaces very carefully bc the virus can stay viable on these for up to 9 days. Take note and be vigilant about touching hand rails, door knobs, etc. and keep these clean in home home
    5) Don’t smoke
    6) Wash your hands every 20 minutes with any soap that foams and do this for 20 seconds
    7) Eat fruits and vegetables. Try to elevate your zinc levelS
    8)Animals do not spread the virus to people. Its a person to person transmission.
    9)Try to avoid getting the common flu as this already weakens your system and try to avoid eating and drinking any cold things.
    10) If you feel any discomfort in your throat or a sore throat coming on, attack it immediately using the above methods. The virus enters the system through the throat but will sit in the throat for 3-4 days before it passes into your lungs.

    In addition ...

    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 recommended to do this control every morning to help detect infection.

    Okay back to address this.
    Today my family is home and I took time to go over these 10 points. I asked my DIL where she got this from. She says she "honestly" doesn't remember where she got it from. A side eye from me on that one, anytime someone says honestly in this situation.

    1. Drinking warm water is beneficial as it hydrates better than cold water. Hot lemon water helps with digestion.
    2. Gargling with warm water and a little salt helps ease a sore throat.
    3. The virus attaching to hair and clothing. Maybe. If it's true than I should have been ill weeks ago.
    4. Virus viable on metallic surfaces up to 9 days. Could be, just keep things clean.
    5. Don't smoke. Yeah✔ don't. Bad for your health anyway worse if you have pneumonia.
    6. Wash hands every 20 minutes. That is excessive. Just wash your hands often.
    7. Eating fruits and vegetables is a healthy thing to do, but not going to keep you from contracting this virus.
    8. Animals (I assume this means pets) do not spread the virus. I don't think that is definitive yet, but keep loving up your pet. I would not allow face licking though and wash your hands after petting.
    9. This one is laughable to me. Avoid getting the flu. You can't avoid the flu, not even with a flu shot. I've had the flu 3 times, twice as an adult, once after a flu shot. /Avoid eating and drinking anything cold. Are you going to stop eating ice cream or having a cold drink?
    10. I don't know about the virus sitting in your throat for 3-4 days if you refer to number 1 and believe that.

    This breath holding test. Just don't do it. Fibrosis can only be detected by CT scan.

    2) Gargle with an antiseptic and warm water like vinegar or salt or lemon every day if possible
    3) The virus attaches itself to hair and clothes. And detergent or soap kills it but you must take bath or shower when you get in from the street. Avoid sitting down in your home and go straight to the shower. If you cannot wash your clothes daily, hang them in sunlight which also helps to neutralize the virus
    4) Wash metallic surfaces very carefully bc the virus can stay viable on these for up to 9 days. Take note and be vigilant about touching hand rails, door knobs, etc. and keep these clean in home home
    5) Don’t smoke
    6) Wash your hands every 20 minutes with any soap that foams and do this for 20 seconds
    7) Eat fruits and vegetables. Try to elevate your zinc levels
    8)Animals do not spread the virus to people. Its a person to person transmission.
    9)Try to avoid getting the common flu as this already weakens your system and try to avoid eating and drinking any cold things.
    10) If you feel any discomfort in your throat or a sore throat coming on, attack it immediately using the above methods. The virus enters the system through the throat but will sit in the throat for 3-4 days before it passes into your lungs.

    In addition ...

    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 recommended to do this control every morning to help detect infection
