Yeah well I'm def going to wear mine when I'm done making it and when I'm out.CDC denies they will recommend all Americans wear protective masks in everyday life: report
I just got my masks from etsy (totally cute, too!)
I'll be wearing it for the reasons outlined in the video.
Though imperfect, they protect others - if I were sick. Plus, they offer some protection to me. AND (big and) I won't touch my face when I'm out. This is a big source of transmission.
I ordered online three months of my dogs food, and i keep buying about 20 days of cat food at a time. I think we have three months of horse food/hay as well. for a while, they were going to eat better than me because i couldn't find anything for myself lolI'm not sure how difficult it is for any of ya'll to get groceries, but this is a friendly reminder to stock up (not hoard) pet food as well. I took being able to order our dogs' food for advantage. I went to order more yesterday to find out most stores had limited stock or were out all together. Luckily Petco still had some available online so I ordered two bags. The order was 35% off and with free shipping so that was extremely helpful and relieving.
We're running low on hand sanitizer. Does anyone know of anywhere to get any? I can't find the smallest bit anywhere. My husband is an "essential worker" so has to keep immersing himself into potential infectious places and his company isn't providing them with any PPE.
Hope everyone is hanging in there alright.
COVID-19 is the only thing on that list that's a threat to increase at an exponential rate though. If we just did nothing, we'd probably lose at least a couple million Americans to it this year. Taking action to make sure that the spread of the virus is limited clearly makes a big difference in terms of lives lost.Since I live in California I happened to see these were last weeks stats on cause of death in my state for just the one week.
Heart Disease 1,202
COVID-19 (Last Week) 332
Alzheimer's Disease 308
Chronic lower respiratory diseases 279
Influenza and Pneumonia 122
Chronic Liver Disease/Cirrhosis 102
I've been following this closely (out of interest). Most people think it has to do with institutional racism and though I'm inclined to agree - there are other confounds that might engage with this model. (Thus one reason I've been watching).My county has a interesting web page breaking down some stats. Interesting that the latest narrative black people being more prone to COVID-19 does not hold true at all in my area. To me it seems is not a genetic thing but a social situation. I wonder how this holds in different area's?
