#FlattenTheCurve #StayHome is for protecting a minority. be social and keep distance 1,5 meters to old people, wash your hands with soap before touching your face and don't sneeze in front of others. if you become sick stay at home, don't fear! you won't die
i share a collection of links which will help you on your own research. i won't point you on any direction but there is one worth mention
[bunch of stuff we shouldn't read]
Please mind that I will disagree with you A LOT but I love you no less <3
People are not immortal indoors, lol. I believe using the term 'minority' is a bit unfortunate. 8.2% of the world's population is 65+ years old (source
), that's nearly 600 million people! Not even taking into account that there are plenty of lethal cases under 65. Fact is: we don't really know that much yet so let's assume the worst for a bit. For our own safety.
My point is: some
fear is okay! We shouldn't live in absolute terror but being a little scared is definitely needed to remind ourselves that we need to remain cautious for a while. Common sense should prevail. Not only for ourselves but mainly for the people around us. I would strongly recommend to follow the guidelines/regulations your government has put in place. Don't act on your own research
, that just amounts to chaos. As we have different scales of population density and cultures (and a whole bunch of other parameters), measures will be (somewhat) different everywhere. Russia is a different story though! Their Vodka makes them immune, apparently
I work with paramedics daily and saying things like "you won't die if you're sick" isn't helpful. If you're sick: stay at home, avoid contact with other people in your house as much as possible (some countries state differently, follow their advice if you feel it's fine) and when symptoms get worse, get in touch with your doctor or go to a hospital if they get really bad (extremely high fever, difficulty breathing, etc.). If you have any preexisting conditions, seek medical assistance faster. Call them first when possible as they will instruct you what to do. Don't panic! With some oxygen and the help of the amazing heroes in the medical world your chances are favorable. PLEASE don't gobble up medical data to draw your own conclusions. You don't know better. Leave it to the professionals to assess your own unique situation. Just don't call them when you have a simple cough or a sore throat; that's just ridiculous (medical services are being overrun with crap like that now, causing delays for urgent matters).
Stay safe and keep on clapping! 👏
