Hello everyone!

I didn’t think I would ever do this type of post, but I think it was necessary. Just to point out at the beginning, I do not have Corona but my heart and prayers go out to everyone that is currently ill, in a hospital or in quarantine.

Croatia has been affected by the virus and it is spreading but the condition is not as bad and as devastating as in Italy. Our government is already agreeing to closing schools and kindergartens but we do have some issues with closing our borders because we import a lot of our food from other countries, Italy included.

I am not a doctor and do not have any expertise in this area, but please if your country or city have been affected by the virus, try your best to stay inside as much as possible and to wash your hands as often as you can. You can also buy sanitizers which are pocket size and carry them around in your purse or jacket. Please, follow the guidelines that your government has issued regarding your health and protection from the virus.

If you have a car, please use it to travel to work and avoid public transportation or any type of business trips. I think that the awareness is on a high level regarding this virus and that companies are being more careful. I know that in Croatia a lot of my friends who travel for business had their trips cancelled as a safety precaution. Avoid public gatherings, do not go out partying, avoid being in crowds in general.

If you have any type of flu like symptoms, please do not go directly to a hospital and please do not go to work or to school. Contact your doctor first if you are suspecting you have the virus and let him explain to you how to proceed. If not necessary, do not go to hospitals or spend any time in doctorโ€™s waiting rooms.

If you notice that the virus spread in your country is fast, please do stock up on food and other items which will be necessary if you will have to go into quarantine. No safety measure is too much of a safety measure. Also, if you know of older people who might not be in condition to prepare themselves for quarantine, please help them buy groceries.

As I said I am not a doctor, these are just the guidelines that the Croatia government and all others have issued. I hope that you are safe and healthy and that you will remain that way.

Sending love and positive vibes,

Doctors are reporting they now understand the behavior of the COVID 19 virus due to autopsies that they have carried out. This virus is characterized by obstructing respiratory pathways with thick mucus that solidifies and blocks the airways and lungs. So they have discovered that in order to apply a medicine you have to open and unblock these airways so that the treatment can be used to take effect however all of this takes a number of days. Their recommendations for what you can do to safeguard yourself are โ€ฆ
1) Drink lots of hot liquids โ€“ coffees, soups, teas, warm water. In addition take a sip of warm water every 20 minutes bc this keeps your mouth moist and washes any of the virus thatโ€™s entered your mouth into your stomach where your gastric juices will neutralize it before it can get to the lungs.
2) Gargle with an antiseptic and warm water like vinegar or salt or lemon every day if possible
3) The virus attaches itself to hair and clothes. And detergent or soap kills it but you must take bath or shower when you get in from the street. Avoid sitting down in your home and go straight to the shower. If you cannot wash your clothes daily, hang them in sunlight which also helps to neutralize the virus
4) Wash metallic surfaces very carefully bc the virus can stay viable on these for up to 9 days. Take note and be vigilant about touching hand rails, door knobs, etc. and keep these clean in home home
5) Donโ€™t smoke
6) Wash your hands every 20 minutes with any soap that foams and do this for 20 seconds
7) Eat fruits and vegetables. Try to elevate your zinc levels
8)Animals do not spread the virus to people. Its a person to person transmission
9)Try to avoid getting the common flu as this already weakens your system and try to avoid eating and drinking any cold things.
10) If you feel any discomfort in your throat or a sore throat coming on, attack it immediately using the above methods. The virus enters the system through the throat but will sit in the throat for 3-4 days before it passes into your lungs.
