Coronavirus cases are still growing at approximately one-thousand per day. The most informed top-level authorities we see on TV are sounding skeptical that it can be stopped anytime soon. They are clearly morose and the stock markets of the world are in a panic. I’m not the one creating the panic because I have only a few followers, and have never been openly quoted anywhere on this issue. However, my logarithmic graphic makes it abundantly clear that as the Coronavirus goes worldwide, where there is less public control over public behavior than there is in China, the disease will spread more easily. What to do?
There is plenty of advice out there from governmental medical agencies, all saying much the same thing. I am searching for alternate methods, but I don’t promote them, only develop the ideas. These are some things for you to think about and not necessarily do.
There was one erroneous procedure promoted by a major respected medical organization. I won’t mention their name because I don’t want to get sued, or whatever. They acknowledge that there isn’t treatment, and their option is to simply treat symptoms. Their shortlist of what can be done included: Pain relievers, Cough syrup or medication, Rest, Fluid intake.
The problem with that list is that what the public will take for “cough syrup or medication” will likely suppress coughing. The presenting symptom of Coronavirus is a dry cough and to suppress even a dry cough is counterproductive. What is needed is productive coughing that lubricates the lungs to get the dry stuff out of the lungs. That is called an expectorant, such as Mucinex = (Guaifenesin is used to help clear mucus or phlegm (pronounced flem). It helps get stuff out of the chest when you have congestion from a cold or flu. It works by thinning the mucus or phlegm in the lungs.) which helps produce a more fluid mucus to be expelled from the lungs.
Breathing is compromised by Coronavirus, so in addition to a few dollars for a bottle of Mucinex, a few more hundred dollars to purchase an oxygen generating machine, such as a DEDAKJ, makes sense to me. That might make a big difference in your outcome because it will help maintain your oxygen level. I tried to purchased one on eBay, but they were sold out of them as soon as people realize it was a cheap insurance policy. Like I said above, I’m not recommending that you do this, but it makes sense for me.
The point of this Probaway post is to encourage you to keep breathing and giving you some potential options for succeeding with that routine task.
