    Default COVID-19 LEARNING CHANNEL

    Here is a thread to put specifically valuable learning information about COVID-19.

    Please don't post random things you found on facebook like "Silver Bracelet Covid019 Repellent". -

    Please share actual good, solid information, if you see something valuable.

    Moderators reserve the right to kill anything that spreads false and unverified information.

    I'll start- by saying I've found a great resource on Youtube, his name is Dr. John Campbell.
    He is a NURSE teacher in the United Kingdom by trade, and has been doing a daily broadcast with GREAT information from around the world
    about the development of COVID-19. I'll put some videos from this week, and then try to add as we can.

    The first one I'll put is "Flatten the Curve", explaining what the point is of trying to keep people indoors, to slow the expansion of the pandemic.

      • Provide supplies that can be used to help prevent the spread of germs.
      • Consult local public health officials about your event.
      • Review considerations on when to cancel an event.

    • If there is minimal or moderate spreadpdf icon in your community:
      • Cancel events for groups of 250 people or more.
        • Alert! Starting 3/15 and for 8 weeks, CDC recommends all events of 50+ people be cancelled or held virtually. See full recommendation.

    • If there is substantial spreadpdf icon in your community:
      • Cancel events of any size.

    • If there is a case of COVID-19 at your event:
      • Separate anyone who has COVID-19 symptoms from others until they can go home.
        • Anyone with symptoms should not take public transportation or shared rides

      • Contact local public health officials.

    Not trying to discredit the situation but I also believe that the injection of humor from time to time is important. Which brings to mind George Carlin's take on germs from years past. Note that the following link is Not Work Safe (NWS) because of language.

    Take a deep breath- and relax. The object is to flatten the curve.

    Default COVID-19 LEARNING CHANNEL

    From a study I found from last night:

    Brass and copper door knobs are much less susceptible to corona viruses, than steel, stainless steel, or aluminum knobs. Apparently the electrolytic function of copper (and brass includes a lot of copper) kills the virus ON THE SURFACE OF THE KNOB OR HANDLE rapidly.

    Source: a research paper from SouthHampton University, done in 2015, studying various building materials, and SARS and MERS Corona viruses.
    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26556276


    Viruses on steel, stainless steel, and aluminum knobs and handles, as well as other interior building materials such as glass, Formica, and granite remained detectable at 24 hours after exposed.

    Viruses on brass and on copper handles and knobs were no longer detectable about ten minutes after exposure.
