Calming Information About COVID-19

 

Today my daughter sent me this youtube video and suggested that I listen even though it is almost an hour.

It was in the low sixties, perfect weather to take a walk in the neighborhood.

I turned the sound on my phone and listened to Dr. David Price, a New York physician who is treating only COVID-19 patients.

This conversation is perfect for us to listen to right now. Dr. Price explains how we get this virus and shares how to protect ourselves. There is a great Q & A at the end.

 

He explains in a very calm, reassuring way, that you don't have to be afraid of others.

I am glad that I took the time to listen and wanted to share this with you. 

 

 

 

All ABOUT COVID-19

 

 

As a former RN, I found this to be the best information heard so far.

Feel free to watch or listen and share it with others.

 

Debe has taken perfect notes for those who do not want to listen for an hour.

Morning Margaret.

While I don't have an hour to listen right now, I'll take your word for it.

Posted by James Dray, Exceptional Agents, Outstanding Results (Fathom Realty) 4 months ago

Good morning Margaret. Will try to make some time later to listen. In the interim, staying safe! Enjoy your day!

Thanks for sharing this resource, Margaret. I've saved it to watch a bit later in the day and can't wait!

My daughter-in-law sent me this link earlier this week. He does do a great job explaining and calming some of the hysteria. Washing and disinfecting our hands - and not touching our faces - seems to be key.

Thank you SO much for sharing this voice of reason, Margaret! You know, being a former nurse, I'm doing my best to relay calm but, sadly a LOT of people who are normal calm are being alarmists right now.

Debe Maxwell, CRS Yes, as former nurses and Realtors® we can help relay that calm with listening to the right messages.

Just WOW! I am going to re-blog this with a summary of what he shared since people may not want to take the hour to listen to it. I think it's increibly important information.

As you know, I had 'cocktail hour' with friends last night, 3 of which are medical professionals and they are all calm, cool and collected - and they all work front-line AND are in a LEVEL-ONE TRAUMA CENTER! We need to stop the spread of panic as much as we need to stop the spread of COVID-19.

Thank you SO much, Margaret! I've been preaching this for weeks - I should go back to my first post on this and link it. It's definitely calming and reassuring. 

Did I say THANK YOU?!!

Debe Maxwell, CRS Great idea to summarize this. The more people who see this the better.  Being in the medical field, we really can appreciate this common-sense approach.  Keep preaching.

Thanks for the future re-blog.

The latest belief is that most people infect themselves by not washing their hands prior to touching their face , nose or eyes !!

Thank you for sending her my way, Margaret! I'm loving also reading that, basically, Michael J. Perry pretty much summed up his most emphasized recommendation!

We all need a little calmness about coronavirus especially since a lot of us are being safe and not going wandering about.

Margaret Rome Baltimore 410-530-2400 - That was very informative! He did explain it clearly and calmly too! This was perfect! I want Lottie Kendall to see this too! Thank you.

Dr. Price offers an alternative perspective to Covid 19.  I've felt many of the emotions he expressed.  I haven't been angry, other than with the lack of medical supplies and equipment which should have been readily available to protect everyone.  In the future there will be investigative documentaries produced about this time we dwell in.  I suspect them to be far more enlightening than we can imagine.

while I'm calm, I don't believe it's quite as simple as he says and there no purell anywhere in my town.

Posted by Tammy Lankford,, Broker GA Lake Sinclair/Eatonton/Milledgeville (Lane Realty Eatonton, GA Lake Sinclair, Milledgeville, 706-485-9668) 4 months ago

My husband played this last week for me - really the best and most positive perspective on the whole issue. Should be required listening!

Posted by Margaret Goss, Chicago's North Shore & Winnetka Real Estate (Baird & Warner Real Estate) 4 months ago

Tammy Lankford, Any hand sanitizer, a bar of soap, liquid detergent, alcohol, peroxide, antiseptic wipes or any other disinfectant works. The name Purell is just an example. I do think it is that simple. Please stay safe and well.

Posted by Margaret Rome Baltimore 410-530-2400, Sell Your Home With Margaret Rome ( HomeRome Realty 410-530-2400) 4 months ago

Well we can find a bar of soap, and detergent, but that doesn't help much if you are out in the car and don't have water and we haven't seen a wipe, gel or alcohol or ANY hand sanitizer hasn't come in on a truck in rural America in 17 days now.  They order it, but suppliers are apparently prioritizing cities and we have no restocks.  Oh Lysol spray too.... not a can in 17 days in 15 stores that I check with daily.  So there's that.

Posted by Tammy Lankford,, Broker GA Lake Sinclair/Eatonton/Milledgeville (Lane Realty Eatonton, GA Lake Sinclair, Milledgeville, 706-485-9668) 4 months ago

Wow Tammy Lankford, So sorry that your area is lacking those basic supplies. I suggest taking a  plastic or zip-lock type bag and filling it with soapy cloths, or soap and wet paper towels and just improvising. Thanks for sharing how different your rural area is. Please stay safe.
