I'm friends with a nurse practitioner.
She sent me a link from a doctor which is like 5 pages long.
Here is a bit of what this doctor had to say about covid -19.


Just some food for thought amid the panic.

Quote:
Most people don’t get COVID-19. Why?

Testing of high risk people (those who most likely would get COVID-19 due to exposure to confirmed COVID-19 patients or travel from high risk areas) reveal that 90% of patients are testing negative, i.e., they have not evidence of disease. Why is that?

Most likely, these patients have pre-existing immunity to the virus from previous exposure to COVID-19 or due to cross-reactive immunity from being infected by related Coronaviruses.

Many people have stated that they suffered symptoms of Coronavirus earlier this year. Due to a lack of testing, many people most likely have had exposure to the virus; they have developed immunity to it.
This from the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons/AAPS

I got the stuff to make masks with cotton fabric, hair elastics and the "blue shop towels" yesterday, and got the joys of waiting in line for about 20 minutes to get into Walmart to pick up my online order. I don't know why they aren't offering curbside delivery for online orders as it would have cut down on the line by at least 2 people and reduced exposure. While I was there, I picked up a few grocery items we were either out of (like sliced sammie bread) or getting low on. Guess I'll be doing some sewing later. Will have to do it by hand as I got rid of the machine years ago since I hardly ever sewed anymore.



Now if I could just get my order of 99% isopropyl alcohol. Ordered it on 3/20 and I'm still waiting. They said 7-10 days for shipping so I called last week, looks like it won't get shipped for at least 2 more weeks. Would have been nice had they notified me wouldn't it? Already have the pure aloe and bottles, now it would be nice to get the alcohol.



There's no hand sanitizer to be had, though I did manage to get antibacterial wipes a couple of weeks ago.

I have cloth napkins and rubber bands. I am pretty sure those will also work.

Never explain yourself. Your friends don't need it and your enemies won't believe it anyway.

I can just imagine how fast the blue shop towels are flying off the shelves. I looked for them earlier but couldn't find them around here.

Shipping is all clogged around here too. I'm still supposed to get some tp tomorrow, keeping my fingers crossed. I did get some bleach and some facial tissues.

One of the older nurses fashioned cloth masks, which is all the rage now. More a fad than anything at the moment.
She made a ton of them using cloth scraps and ponytail holders.
The consensus is, "better than nothing".

Highlighted stuff: Maybe they help your patients feel more comfortable too. The regular masks might scare them a little more than the cloth mask covers.

Re: 3 ply disposable masks
How do those compare to the black ones? A friend gave me some of the black ones today. They are supposed to be reusable. Just wondering since you have experience with masks and I have none

You are so right about the cloth masks making the residents feel more comfortable.
Many of them understand what is going on and why all the sudden the masks.
There is a basket of them in the med room- every design, every colour of the rainbow.

If you're speaking of the black nylon type masks, I've seen them but have never used them.

I did an online order and waited for pickup notice. I actually ordered from 2 places. Never got a pickup notice all weekend from the one and then got a cancellation notice this morning.

Glad you got TP!

Our town posted an update. As of 4/4/2020 we have 23 confirmed cases and 2 deaths in our town of Pop. 2,800.

One was a former fire chief. The other was the patriarch of a long time restaurant in town. Hub and I met with him years ago to plan the party after our DD's baptism.

...
Oops, forgot to add this:
A friend told me this morning that her husband had some leftover masks from when he did a lot of spray painting on their house. If you can get some of those, they may be some protection, maybe better than just cloth. I don't know where he bought them, probably at the paint store.

Hopefully, I just scored 4 quart bottles of 99% isopropyl alcohol at a decent price that is actually in stock from a local lab so I can make hand sanitizer for us. I'll find out Monday for sure as they closed early today for Good Friday. More than I wanted, but that was minimum amount available right now.

Still have some on order from another place, but they keep putting me off on shipping date. That order will get cancelled if and when I get my hands on the local stuff.

As recently highlighted by Drs. Deborah Birx and Anthony Fauci, key voices in the White House coronavirus task force, antibody testing will begin to ramp up throughout the nation in the days and weeks ahead to better inform our tact in fighting COVID-19.

At a hospital in Chicago, a non-randomized sample found that 30-50% of patients tested for COVID-19 have antibodies in their system, suggesting they already had the virus and have potential immunity.

Most people I know got it either last night or today.

We just got another case tested positive in our county.
Both have been males.
That brings us up to two.
People are freaking out a little.
This is expected with a virus, for crying out loud.
