I need you to BREATHE.
In through your nose and out through your mouth…
THAT’S it. Simply breathe.
I know with all the anxiety and fear-based shutdowns and cancellations as well as reports of deaths, it’s easy to stress yourself out with “what if’s” or turning a sneeze into a death sentence.
Sis. Please. Just breathe. I need you to calm down. WAAAAAAAAAAYYYY down.
I’m a God girl. I trust God with my life. So I protect my mental by keeping my mind on God as well as staying in the positive. Energy attracts energy.
Faith without works is dead. So I pair mental with getting in reality about EXACTLY how to know the difference between media-induced fear and the actual physical symptoms of the virus. By pairing the spiritual/mental with the practical, I can quiet the anxiousness trying to arise AND I can keep on with my life.
Don’t Panic. Prepare. Prevent. Pray. Repeat. It’s easy to get swept up in the anxiety floating in the air literally, and on the media airwaves.
Read below to take care of yourself and all the lives you touch. This virus is not a plague. And it can be prevent with pretty basic hygiene and consideration for others.

THE SYMPTOMS OF CORONAVIRUS
1. It will first infect the throat, so you’ll have a sore throat lasting 3/4 days.
2. The virus then blends into a nasal fluid that enters the trachea and then the lungs, causing pneumonia. This takes about 5/6 days further.
3. With pneumonia comes high fever and difficulty in breathing.
4. The nasal congestion is not like the normal kind. You feel like you’re drowning. It’s imperative you then seek immediate attention.
SPREAD THE WORD
CORONAVIRUS FOR GUIDANCE:
1. If you have a runny nose and sputum, you have a common cold.
2. Coronavirus pneumonia is a dry cough with no runny nose.
3. This new virus is not heat-resistant and will be killed by a temperature of just 26/27 Celsius. It hates the Sun.
4. If someone sneezes with it, it takes about 10 feet before it drops to the ground and is no longer airborne.
5. If it drops on a metal surface it will live for at least 12 hours – so if you come into contact with any metal surface – wash your hands as soon as you can with a bacterial soap.
6. On fabric, it can survive for 6-12 hours. normal laundry detergent will kill it.
7. Drinking warm water is effective for all viruses. Try not to drink liquids with ice.
8. Wash your hands frequently as the virus can only live on your hands for 5-10 minutes, but – a lot can happen during that time – you can rub your eyes, pick your nose unwittingly and so on.
9. You should also gargle as prevention. A simple solution of salt in warm water will suffice.
10. Can’t emphasize enough – drink plenty of water!
