Stay away from everyone. Don’t touch anything outside your home or anything that isn’t yours.
If you must wear gloves or put on some protective covering then discard of that covering as safely as you can.
When you bring anything new inside your home, disinfect it.

Wash your hands immediately after you touch something outside of your home and avoid touching your face if you have to touch things that you aren’t 100% sure they have been disinfected by the virus

There are people roaming around the villages who have the virus and they don’t know it. You don’t know who they are and they don’t know it either.

Default MIT latest says it is 27 feet

This came out yesterday late, Tuesday, and should quickly help you decide how often you want to be grocery shopping. MIT scientists just validated, in case of a sneeze, the virus can travel 27 feet because of the body’s propulsion. Please remember some of the droplets can be airborne for up to 3 hours that has been published by Princeton a week ago. So if you walk in the radius of that 27 foot spread even if you don’t see a sneezing person you can become infected. Regardless of how you clean your hands.

Also additional symptom out, surprisingly different for only 3% with Covid19. Pink eye. No fever no respiratory issues just painful pink eye.

Please be smart and careful

It's the Flu folks! Granted if you get it, it could be worse but in the big picture... no, not really. Car wrecks and bee/wasp stings are still a far greater killer. Well it was before everyone ran inside scared to death by the media and government.
It's not a disease that hunts you down like some being in a hollywood movie. It's a virus that's spread mostly by being too close to another human. Go into a store if you need to (or if you can find one open lol)
Go for your walks, your bike rides, your cart rides. Find a quiet spot to watch the sunrise or sunset. Bring some food for the wildlife. See someone? Wave and say hi keeping a safe distance.
I've never been afraid of dying, but I get horrified by the thought of not living.

How about people that live in your house and are out in public most of the day?

With their advice and our own common sense, we think we know exactly what to do to avoid getting the virus.
I do not want to make this into a political battle, but to me, it's encouraging (as well as important) that people sample the news from various outlets and persuasions. It allows you to be exposed to many differing opinions, and permits you to make more informed judgements, no matter what the topic.

Trust the doctors and scientists. This is NOT the flu. Dr. Fauci says so himself. Just go to YouTube and type in the search field: "Fauci this is not the flu". You can see him make it crystal clear. COVID-19 is 10x more lethal. Please do not be casual about this. Have your essentials at home. Wash hands and disinfect frequently touched surfaces. Practice social distancing. It's a short term inconvenience compared to the alternative. Be safe everyone.

Jury is still out on that one as it's impossible to tell how many have had it and gotten over it.
No one yet has the correct data to figure this out yet.
At current numbers, 10x more lethal is still below 1%.

Listen to the CDC. Go on CDC.gov. These are the medical experts, no political commentary, just the facts.

By all means listen to the medical professionals, not the government.

While the networks report their version of the facts, Fox News has the latest medical experts' stats and advice based upon those stats on a daily basis. While the medical experts are "federal" employees, the networks are NOT experts, but think they are. You be the judge!

Default I’m an Emergency Physician. Please listen to our societies, not politicians. Please

I will avoid politics. My job for last 26 years as an ER doc in a academic trauma center is to save lives , teach medical students and residents and be honest with patients . I use evidence-based medicine, not “gut”.
Here’s a document that may help.

It is NOT the flu, unless you are talking about the Spanish Flu.
