Thank you for being part of the AGE.FYI experience.
We are all in this together so let's learn together.
See how this virus is affecting us with Coronavirus Realtime Updates

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is responding to a pandemic of respiratory disease spreading from person-to-person caused by a novel (new) coronavirus. The disease has been named “coronavirus disease 2019” (abbreviated “COVID-19”). This situation poses a serious public health risk. COVID-19 can cause mild to severe illness; most severe illness occurs in older adults.

COVID-19 is a new disease and we are still learning about how it spreads and the severity of illness it causes.
The virus is thought to spread mainly from person to person.

The complete clinical picture with regard to COVID-19 is not fully known. Reported illnesses have ranged from very mild (including some with no reported symptoms) to severe, including illness resulting in death. Older people and people of all ages with severe chronic medical conditions — like heart disease, lung disease and diabetes, for example — seem to be at higher risk of developing serious COVID-19 illness.
The best way to prevent infection is to avoid being exposed to this virus.

Steps to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 if you are sick.

  • Stay home except to get medical care
  • Stay in touch with your doctor
  • Separate yourself from other people in your home
  • Limit contact with pets andd animals
  • Wear a face mask
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes
  • Dispose of used tissues, gloves and masks in a lined trash can
  • Avoid sharing personal household items.
  • Clean all high touch surfaces daily

Monitor your symptoms, and get medical attention if

  • You have difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
  • Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
  • Dry Cough
  • Fatigue
  • Bluish Lips or face
  • Fever

Why should I not touch my face?
Touching the mucus membranes on your face with your dirty hands allows germs that cause respiratory infections to enter the body.
Respiratory infections, like pneumonia or the flu, can spread through droplets in the air when a sick person coughs, sneezes, or talks near you. Respiratory infections can also spread by direct contact with bacteria, viruses, and other disease-causing germs. When we touch people who are sick, or touch dirty surfaces, we contaminate our hands with germs. We can then infect ourselves with those germs by touching our face.

Don't touch your face!

The immune system is a complex fighting system powered by five liters of blood and lymph. Lymph is a clear and colorless liquid that passes throughout the tissues of the body. Together, these two fluids transport all the elements of the immune system so they can do their jobs.
Ways to build your immune system:

  • Get enough sleep
  • Take your Cod Liver Oil! It contains Vitamin A & D, also an anti-flammatory
  • Take Vitamin D
  • Take Vitamin C
  • Decrease the toxins in your life, such as, processed foods, fast food, soda, and sugar.
  • Take a pro-biotic
  • Take a pre-biotic
  • Drink bone broth or homemade soups
  • Exercise
  • Reduce stress

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is responding to a pandemic of respiratory disease spreading from person-to-person. The disease has been named “coronavirus disease 2019” (“COVID-19”). This situation poses a serious public health risk. COVID-19 can cause mild to severe illness; especially in older adults and those with compromised immune systems.
The best way to prevent infection is to avoid being exposed to this virus.

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

Am I at risk for COVID-19?
Based on currently available information and clinical expertise,some people who have serious underlying medical conditions might be at a higher risk for sever illness from COVID-19.
People at higher risk include:

  • People with Chronic lung diseases
  • People with Diabetes
  • People with serious Heart conditions
  • People with Liver Disease
  • People with weaken immune systems, such as the elderly, or people taking Cancer or Aids Treatments
Severe Obesity increases the risk of a serious breathing problem called acute respiratory distress syndrome which can be a major complication of COVID-19. People with obesity can have other high-risk health condition, such as hypertension or diabetes.
A recent report from New York shows more than two in every five people requiring a breathing tube were obese.
Higher levels of fat in the chest and belly put pressure on the lungs, making it difficult for people with obesity to fill their lungs to capacity putting distress on their respiratory systems.
Fat tissue is a potential source of unchecked inflammation which could cause damage to organs, including the lungs, as a result of COVID-19
This data needs to be a wake up call for people with obesity. Just another reason we need to take care of our bodies, our mind and health.

Have you, or someone you know had an experience with this virus? We would be happy to hear from you.
