Highlight font on a few things…..

Board Conference Call with Mississippi Blood Services trying to figure out how best to move forward during this virus. We need blood!  

•A few things to know about this virus:

•Coronavirus pneumonia is a dry cough with no runny nose.

•Coronavirus is not heat-resistant and will be killed by a temperature of 78.8-80.6 degrees Fahrenheit.

•If someone sneezes with it, it takes about 10 feet before it drops to the ground and is no longer airborne.

•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 anti-bacterial soap.

•On fabric it can survive for 6-12 hours. Normal laundry detergent will kill it.

•Drinking warm water is effective for all viruses. Try not to drink liquids with ice.

•The virus can only live for 5-10 minutes on your hands; however, wash you hands before you touch your face.

•Drink plenty of water.

•It will first infect your throat – lasting 3-4 days. Take Cold-Eeze or other zinc supplements to relieve symptoms.

•Coronavirus hates zinc.

•Next the virus will blend into a nasal fluid that enters the trachea and then the lungs, causing pneumonia. It takes around 5-6 days further. The
nasal congestion makes you feel like your drowning. It is imperative you then seek immediate attention.

•With the pneumonia comes high fever and difficulty in breathing.
