So after many nations around the globe have been placed on high alert as a result of this new “pandemic”, there seems to be a decrease in reports of new cases of persons contracting this new virus. As deadly as it may sound and the implications for contracting this disease, the mindset of most people including Doctors appears to be the same, stock up on the latest “pills”, masks, etc. and start taking a pill for this and a pill for that.

There are articles written, news bulletins, radio announcements etc, telling us to;

  • Wash our hands before eating.
  • Avoid crowded places.
  • Use a rag or towel to sneeze or cough.
  • Wash hands after touching door knobs.
  • Wash hands thoroughly before and after using the bathroom.
  • Not to use an unclean hand to touch your nose or mouth.
  • Ensure adequate intake of vitamins
  • Etc Etc.

Very few health professionals are advocating the virtues of preventative maintenance and its associated host of benefits.

At the same that the CDC is down-playing the severity of the virus, the first documented American adult passed away as a result of the virus, after giving birth to a baby girl via c-section.
