Hopefully, you did.
If you did read LwL yesterday, then you would have found information about what to do to avoid getting CORONAVIRUS (COVID - 19).
After I found that information, I received an e-mail from a friend... that was an article about Coronavirus... but with more information on an article.
Here is the WebMD.com article entitled, Coronavirus: What You Need to Know: https://www.webmd.com/lung/news/20200303/coronavirus-what-you-need-to-know?ecd=wnl_spr_030320&ctr=wnl-spr-030320_nsl-LeadModule_cta&mb=pteSYjzvw8eaOihqAMoPC%40HnVev1imbCEuWJ0U6672o%3d.
Please... click on that link and read that article. Even though I can't share the entire article... I will share as much as I can (I copied/pasted):
coronavirus outbreak, see our news coverage.
March 3, 2020 -- The new coronavirus epidemic that started in Wuhan, China, in late December is now in dozens of countries, including the United States. Here are answers to key questions about the virus, including how to protect yourself and what to expect.
When and where did the outbreak start?
China first reported the outbreak in Wuhan on Dec. 30, 2019.
What are the symptoms of coronavirus?
According to the CDC, symptoms of COVID-19, the disease the new coronavirus causes, may include:
- Shortness of breath
Symptoms may appear in as little as 2 days and as long as 14 days after you’re exposed to the virus.
Is the coronavirus seasonal, like the flu?
Will the coronavirus die out once warmer weather hits? It's possible, but we don't know enough about the virus yet to know for sure, says Nancy Messonnier, director of CDC's National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases.
Most respiratory viruses, like the flu, are seasonal. Coronavirus may behave like the flu and we'll see cases go down in spring and summer, she says. “But it's premature to assume that.” The agency continues to take aggressive action because it can't count on that.
How is coronavirus diagnosed?
If you believe you may have COVID-19, call your doctor’s office before you go. Alert them to the situation so they can prepare for your arrival. Do not just go to an urgent care or emergency room without calling first. If your health care professional agrees you may have coronavirus, they will contact your state and local health departments. The CDC is supplying states with test kits. Each test result must be verified by the CDC before a diagnosis is confirmed.
How does coronavirus spread?
Because COVID-19 is new, there remain many unanswered questions about how it spreads. But experts believe:
- The virus may spread from person to person, between people who are within about 6 feet of each other, and through droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
- It spreads from contact with infected surfaces. Touching a surface or object that has the virus and then touching your mouth, nose, or eyes is one way it may spread, although the CDC says it is not believed to the main way of spreading the virus.
- It may spread before people have symptoms.
- It is not airborne, so you can’t catch it from breathing.
- It spreads easily. Not all viruses do, but the CDC believes COVID-19 spreads “easily and sustainably in the community” in some geographic regions it has affected.
Even so, I believe you need to read the rest of the article that I wasn't able to completely share.
To me, this article is truly good to read.
Not just for me.
But, for everyone who will read it.
I feel so glad that my friend shared it with me... and that I am able to share it with you!
Thinking about that, made me think about Hebrews 13:16, "But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.".
Amen! But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.
Hopefully, we will always remember what we heard and/or read.
Of course, if you share it with others, because you belong to God... as I do, being a believer/ a Christian, then He will be happy that we are doing what we can to help others.
Thank You, Lord!
Until next time...
