Coronavirus Precautionary Measures--Based on Information from ‘Billy’ Eduard Albert Meier / FIGU INFO / Free Download
Summary by Micheal Uyttebroek
Here is a summary of some of the key points that one should be aware of concerning the coronavirus and how to best protect oneself from infection:
• Viruses are actually not life forms in the sense that lifeforms are understood but are infectious acellular organic structures that exist everywhere.
• They are lifeless structures consisting of one or several molecules, which in certain ones of the approximately 2.7 million species and various forms – such as sphere, rod or tail carrier and so forth – are surrounded by a protein shell but are also carriers of DNA or RNA and thus of the information of the genetic material for their proliferation.
• If viruses do not find any host cells in their environment wherever they exist or in any life form, then they paralysingly deteriorate and dissolve in their organic structure, because they cannot die away or die because they are effectively lifeless and are not life forms.
• Due to the fact that this is a very highly contagious virus one should avoid airplanes, ships, mass transportation and large crowds, family gatherings, parties, unnecessary traveling for holidays, etc. and whenever possible, it is best to stay at home rather than to expose oneself to the risk of infection or to infect others if one is already infected.
• Contrary to the data by the WHO, the incubation period is not 2 weeks, but is between 2 to 4 weeks or in some cases even up to 3 months. However, it is also possible that the incubation period ranges from some hours up to some years, which, in each case, depends on the form and state of the immune system. A spread of the coronavirus can already occur after seconds, that is to say, after the moment of infection, therefore not only when it becomes detectable and acute.
• There is a constant danger of being infected with the coronavirus by persons who are infected but do not show any symptoms themselves; consequently, they also have no inkling at all that they themselves are carriers of the virus and therefore, unsuspecting, infect their fellow human beings and can therefore pass the coronavirus on unnoticed.
• An infectious contact can occur through being too close to an infected person’s normal exhalation, coughing and sneezing, or through infected dogs and cats, because also pets can be carriers of the coronavirus.
• Indirect ways of contracting the coronavirus can be from items, body surfaces or food on which the infectious air borne droplets have settled, provided that the virus subsequently gets into the body via the mucous membranes, for example, the mouth, nose or eyes. A transmission via the faecal-oral way and other body excretions is also possible. There is also the possibility of a transmission via infected animals, creatures and house beetles, such as cockroaches and so forth.
• Furthermore, all genera and species of mammalian life-forms are susceptible to this virus and can be affected by it.
• The virus can persist for a long time in wastewater and ventilation systems and call forth terribleness, as well as can establish itself on certain open food, that is to say, cut food – especially on meat – and have an infectious effect
Further Safety Concerns:
• In contrast to other viruses, the survival time of the corona virus is very, very, high! Outside of the human body it can remain active not only for a few hours, as is the case with other viruses, but it is able to survive up to 3 days and even up to 96 hours – depending on the material and surface of the objects and the environment, weather and temperature – before it becomes weak, loses its activity and becomes ineffective.
• If clothes are contaminated it is not enough to hang them in the fresh air over night, because the virus remains active for a long time. Therefore, the clothes must be washed at 60º Celsius so that the virus is safely destroyed.
• One must pay attention to maintain a social distance of at least 2 metres [6.5 feet] from other persons. This is due to the fact that, while breathing and speaking, breath-wisps are emitted and also exhalation droplets are propelled which float through the air and are inhaled by persons that stand too close, leading to a possible infection.
• This distance only applies in wind-protected rooms and locations, however where there is wind, depending on its strength, correspondingly wider spaces must be considered and also the wind direction because the expiration droplets, that is to say, the aerosols, can be carried up to 10 or 15 or more metres [30 to 50 ft. or more] and therefore can also be breathed in at quite a distance by other human beings, who then become infected.
