How Exactly Do You Catch Covid-19?

This was on my Facebook. It’s possible to see some infractions to the COVID-19 quarantine just in the first picture below. One of my cousins’ friends and her family did everything that the quarantine stated should be done. The Wife/Mother ended up with COVID-19 and her husband and children had to go someplace else while the Wife/Mother recuperated. Luckily she did get better and nobody else came down with the COVID-19 in her family.

How Exactly Do You Catch Covid-19? There Is a Growing Consensus

Surface contamination and fleeting encounters are less of a worry than close-up, person-to-person interactions for extended periods

How Exactly Do You Catch Covid-19? There Is a Growing Consensus

Six months into the coronavirus crisis, there’s a growing consensus about a central question: How do people become infected?

It’s not common to contract Covid-19 from a contaminated surface, scientists say. And fleeting encounters with people outdoors are unlikely to spread the coronavirus.

Instead, the major culprit is close-up, person-to-person interactions for extended periods. Crowded events, poorly ventilated areas and places where people are talking loudly—or singing, in one famous case—maximize the risk.

These emerging findings are helping businesses and governments devise reopening strategies to protect public health while getting economies going again. That includes tactics like installing Plexiglas barriers, requiring people to wear masks in stores and other venues, using good ventilation systems and keeping windows open when possible.

Two recent large studies showed that wide-scale lockdowns—stay-at-home orders, bans on large gatherings and business closures—prevented millions of infections and deaths around the world. Now, with more knowledge in hand, cities and states can deploy targeted interventions to keep the virus from taking off again, scientists and public-health experts said.

That means better protections for nursing-home residents and multigenerational families living in crowded conditions, they said. It also means stressing physical distancing and masks, and reducing the number of gatherings in enclosed spaces.

“We should not be thinking of a lockdown, but of ways to increase physical distance,” said Tom Frieden, chief executive of Resolve to Save Lives, a nonprofit public-health initiative. “This can include allowing outside activities, allowing walking or cycling to an office with people all physically distant, curbside pickup from stores, and other innovative methods that can facilitate resumption of economic activity without a rekindling of the outbreak.”

The group’s reopening recommendations include widespread testing, contact tracing and isolation of people who are infected or exposed.

A Recipe for Infection

Getting the Covid-19 virus involves three steps.

1

Coughing, talking and breathing creates virus-carrying droplets of various sizes.

2

Enough virus has to make itself over to you or build up around you over time to trigger an infection.

3

The virus has to make its way into your respiratory tract and use the ACE-2 receptors there to enter cells and replicate.

One important factor in transmission is that seemingly benign activities like speaking and breathing produce respiratory bits of varying sizes that can disperse along air currents and potentially infect people nearby.

Health agencies have so far identified respiratory-droplet contact as the major mode of Covid-19 transmission. These large fluid droplets can transfer virus from one person to another if they land on the eyes, nose or mouth. But they tend to fall to the ground or on other surfaces pretty quickly.

Some researchers say the new coronavirus can also be transmitted through aerosols, or minuscule droplets that float in the air longer than large droplets. These aerosols can be directly inhaled.

That’s what may have happened at a restaurant in Guangzhou, China, where an infected diner who was not yet ill transmitted the virus to five others sitting at adjacent tables. Ventilation in the space was poor, with exhaust fans turned off, according to one study looking at conditions in the restaurant.

Aerosolized virus from the patient’s breathing or speaking could have built up in the air over time and strong airflow from an air-conditioning unit on the wall may have helped recirculate the particles in the air, according to authors of the study, which hasn’t yet been peer-reviewed.

Sufficient ventilation in the places people visit and work is very important, said Yuguo Li, one of the authors and an engineering professor at the University of Hong Kong. Proper ventilation—such as forcing air toward the ceiling and pumping it outside, or bringing fresh air into a room—dilutes the amount of virus in a space, lowering the risk of infection.

Another factor is prolonged exposure. That’s generally defined as 15 minutes or more of unprotected contact with someone less than 6 feet away, said John Brooks, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s chief medical officer for the Covid-19 response. But that is only a rule of thumb, he cautioned. It could take much less time with a sneeze in the face or other intimate contact where a lot of respiratory droplets are emitted, he said.

Superspreaders

At a March 10 church choir practice in Washington state, 87% of attendees were infected, said Lea Hamner, an epidemiologist with the Skagit County public-health department and lead author of a study on an investigation that warned about the potential for “superspreader” events, in which one or a small number of people infect many others.

Members of the choir changed places four times during the 2½-hour practice, were tightly packed in a confined space and were mostly older and therefore more vulnerable to illness, she said. All told, 53 of 61 attendees at the practice were infected, including at least one person who had symptoms. Two died.

Several factors conspired, Ms. Hamner said. When singing, people can emit many large and small respiratory particles. Singers also breathe deeply, increasing the chance they will inhale infectious particles.

Similar transmission dynamics could be at play in other settings where heavy breathing and loud talking are common over extended periods, like gyms, musical or theater performances, conferences, weddings and birthday parties. Of 61 clusters of cases in Japan between Jan. 15 and April 4, many involved heavy breathing in close proximity, such as karaoke parties, cheering at clubs, talking in bars and exercising in gyms, according to a recent study in the journal Emerging Infectious Diseases.

The so-called attack rate—the percentage of people who were infected in a specific place or time—can be very high in crowded events, homes and other spaces where lots of people are in close, prolonged contact.

An estimated 10% of people with Covid-19 are responsible for about 80% of transmissions, according to a study published recently in Wellcome Open Research. Some people with the virus may have a higher viral load, or produce more droplets when they breathe or speak, or be in a confined space with many people and bad ventilation when they’re at their most infectious point in their illness, said Jamie Lloyd-Smith, a University of California, Los Angeles professor who studies the ecology of infectious diseases.

But overall, “the risk of a given infected person transmitting to people is pretty low,” said Scott Dowell, a deputy director overseeing the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s Covid-19 response. “For every superspreading event you have a lot of times when nobody gets infected.”

The attack rate for Covid-19 in households ranges between 4.6% and 19.3%, according to several studies. It was higher for spouses, at 27.8%, than for other household members, at 17.3%, in one study in China.

Rosanna Diaz lives in a three-bedroom apartment in New York City with five other family members. The 37-year-old stay-at-home mother was hospitalized with a stroke on April 18 that her doctors attributed to Covid-19, and was still coughing when she went home two days later.

She pushed to get home quickly, she said, because her 4-year-old son has autism and needed her. She kept her distance from family members, covered her mouth when coughing and washed her hands frequently. No one else in the apartment has fallen ill, she said. “Nobody went near me when I was sick,” she said.

Being outside is generally safer, experts say, because viral particles dilute more quickly. But small and large droplets pose a risk even outdoors, when people are in close, prolonged contact, said Linsey Marr, a Virginia Tech environmental engineering professor who studies airborne transmission of viruses.

No one knows for sure how much virus it takes for someone to become infected, but recent studies offer some clues. In one small study published recently in the journal Nature, researchers were unable to culture live coronavirus if a patient’s throat swab or milliliter of sputum contained less than one million copies of viral RNA.

“Based on our experiment, I would assume that something above that number would be required for infectivity,” said Clemens Wendtner, one of the study’s lead authors and head of the department of infectious diseases and tropical medicine at München Klinik Schwabing, a teaching hospital at the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich.

He and his colleagues found samples from contagious patients with virus levels up to 1,000 times that, which could help explain why the virus is so infectious in the right conditions: It may take much lower levels of virus than what’s found in a sick patient to infect someone else.

Changing policies

Based on this emerging picture of contagion, some policies are changing. The standard procedure for someone who tests positive is to quarantine at home. Some cities are providing free temporary housing and social services where people who are infected can stay on a voluntary basis, to avoid transmitting the virus to family members.

The CDC recently urged Americans to keep wearing masks and maintaining a distance from others as states reopen. “The more closely you interact with others, the longer the interaction lasts, the greater the number of people involved in the interaction, the higher the risk of Covid-19 spread,” said Jay Butler, the CDC’s Covid-19 response incident manager.

If the number of Covid-19 cases starts to rise dramatically as states reopen, “more extensive mitigation efforts such as what were implemented back in March may be needed again,” a decision that would be made locally, he said.

CDC guidelines for employers whose workers are returning include requiring masks, limiting use of public transit and elevators to reduce exposure, and prohibiting hugs, handshakes and fist-bumps. The agency also suggested replacing communal snacks, water coolers and coffee pots with prepacked, single-serve items, and erecting plastic partitions between desks closer than 6 feet apart.

Current CDC workplace guidelines don’t talk about distribution of aerosols, or small particles, in a room, said Lisa Brosseau, a respiratory-protection consultant for the University of Minnesota’s Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy.

“Aerosol transmission is a scary thing,” she said. “That’s an exposure that’s hard to manage and it’s invisible.” Ensuring infected individuals stay home is important, she said, but that can be difficult due to testing constraints. So additional protocols to interrupt spread, like social distancing in workspaces and providing N95 respirators or other personal protective equipment, might be necessary as well, she said.

Some scientists say while aerosol transmission does occur, it doesn’t explain most infections. In addition, the virus doesn’t appear to spread widely through the air.

“If this were transmitted mainly like measles or tuberculosis, where infectious virus lingered in the airspace for a long time, or spread across large airspaces or through air-handling systems, I think you would be seeing a lot more people infected,” said the CDC’s Dr. Brooks.

SHARE YOUR THOUGHTS

What public-health measures do you think are called for? Join the conversation below.

Sampling the air in high-traffic areas regularly could help employers figure out who needs to get tested, said Donald Milton, professor of environmental and occupational health at the University of Maryland School of Public Health.

“Let’s say you detect the virus during lunchtime on Monday in a dining hall,” he said. “You could then reach out to people who were there during that time telling them that they need to get tested.”

Erin Bromage, a University of Massachusetts Dartmouth associate professor of biology, has been fielding questions from businesses, court systems and even therapists after a blog post he wrote titled “The Risks—Know Them—Avoid Them” went viral.

Courts are trying to figure out how to reconvene safely given that juries normally sit close together, with attorneys speaking to them up close, Dr. Bromage said. Therapists want to be able to hold in-person counseling sessions again. And businesses are trying to figure out what types of cleaning and disease-prevention methods in which to invest most heavily.

He advises that while wiping down surfaces and putting in hand-sanitizer stations in workplaces is good, the bigger risks are close-range face-to-face interactions, and having lots of people in an enclosed space for long periods. High-touch surfaces like doorknobs are a risk, but the virus degrades quickly so other surfaces like cardboard boxes are less worrisome, he said. “Surfaces and cleaning are important, but we shouldn’t be spending half of our budget on it when they may be having only a smaller effect,” he said.

Drugmaker Eli Lilly & Co. has a medical advisory panel that’s reading the latest literature on viral transmission, which it is using to develop recommendations for bringing back the company’s own workers safely.

To go into production facilities, some of which are in operation now, scientists must don multiple layers of personal protective equipment, including gloves, masks, goggles and coveralls. That’s not abnormal for drug-development settings, said Lilly Chief Scientific Officer Daniel Skovronsky. “The air is extensively filtered. There’s lots of protection,” he said.

The places he worries about are the break rooms, locker rooms and security checkpoints, where people interact. Those are spaces where the company has instituted social-distancing measures by staggering the times they are open and how many people can be there at once. Only a few cafeterias are open, and those that are have socially distanced seating. In bathrooms, only half the stalls are available to cut down on the number of people.

“We’ll never be more open than state guidelines,” Dr. Skovronsky said, but “we’re often finding ourselves being more restrictive because we’re following the numbers.”

May We Never Again Take For Granted

This is from Facebook. “May We Never Again Take For Granted”, and There Are 7 Things That You Should Never, Ever Take for Granted.

Family Gatherings

Birthday Celebrations

 The Roar of A Stadium

Crowded Concerts

Mornings At The Gym

Coffee With A Friend

Happy Hour

Life,Itself

 

       The above are the 7 things that you should never, ever take for granted. This is from THECREATIVEHEALTHYFAMILY.COM

Do You Remember These?

This idea was on Facebook, but the pictures on it would not copy and paste. I went on Google and Pinterest to get these pictures. Some of the pictures are out of order. I had a hard time finding some that would copy and paste. The pictures are 1. a baby diaper on a baby.  2. a pair of rubber pants and folded diapers. 3. baby with rubber pants on. 4 .diapers not folded yet  5. diapers hanging up on the clothes lines  6. clothes pins  7. different kind of clothes lines  8.  a wringer washer  9. showing just a wringer  10. folding clothes dryer rack. 11. pulley clotheslines

Do you remember these things? They were still in use back in the early 60s. I know this, because my Mother still used cloth diapers and rubber pants, when my youngest brother was born. There were diaper pails that you put the wet ones in until there was enough to wash in a washing machine. The worst part was having to first clean the messy ones by dunking them up and down in the toilet until all the mess was off of them. Then they just went in the pail with the wet ones.

When the pail got full, you had to wash them.You could end up having to do a load of diapers every day sometimes. Usually it was every other day. Washing clothes wasn’t as easy then as it is today. You had to use a wringer washer. First you would put the diapers or clothes in the washer and fill it about 2/3 of the way up. next you would wash them however long you felt you needed to to get the clothes or diapers clean. Then you would drain the water out of the washer and wring out the clothes or diapers. As they were going through the wringer, you would catch them on the other side of the wringer and put them in a pail or a basket. You had to be very careful when putting them through the wringer so that you didn’t get your hands caught in thew wringer. I got my hands caught more times than one. After wringing them out and emptying the water out of the washer, you would put them back in the washer and fill it back up to rinse them. Repeat the cycle above and when done wringing them out again.

After finishing wringing them out,you would go outside and hang them on the clothes lines with clothes pins to dry. There were clothes lines that you had to dig a hole, put the metal pole the hole and then fill the remaining part of the hole with cement. The poles came with between 3 and 5 hangers to put the lines on to hang them up. There were poles that you could put under each line so that they would not drag the ground when the heavy wet clothes were first hung on the lines. If you lived in an apartment building with more than one floor, there were pulley clothes lines. You would hang one item of clothes, then move the pulley to bring up some more line to hang the next item of clothes on, and continue the process until all the clothes were hanging up, or you ran out of clothes line. To remove the clothes, of course you took them off in the reverse of what you hung them up. In the winter you would hang them on a wooden rack that folded up when not in use.

I Googled as to when disposable diapers first came on the market, and this is what I got…”During the 1950s, companies such as Johnson and Johnson, Kendall, Parke-Davis, Playtex, and Molnlycke entered the disposable diaper market, and in 1956, Procter & Gamble began researching disposable diapers.

Even though you can’t go out to a store and buy them now days, you can still order them on Amazon. I know this because II still use the diaper pins on stuff because they stay shut better than the plain metal ones do.

Raise Up President Trump In Prayer

This is from Facebook.

Image may contain: one or more people

John Colbaugh

Just stop for a minute and look at this photo. This is NOT a political post by any means. This is simply something that everyone should stop and think about.
Can you imagine the weight he must be feeling right now? When he signed up for this role (without pay) he did it for Americans. He didn’t do it for the fame or glory, he had all that. He was willing to take on whatever, but the magnitude of what we’re currently experiencing has got to be paralyzing. And to some, NOTHING he does is ever right or good enough.
Do you ever wonder how he must be dealing with it all?….when his head finally hits the pillow at night after press conferences and meetings, constantly trying to defend himself and protect our country.
Does he break down and cry from all the pressure?
Is he scared and confused?
Is he even able to sleep?
Can he shut his mind off at all?
Or does he lay there and talk to God all night praying for strength and answers?
Whether he’s making you proud or not, look at this photo and ask God to soften your heart just a litte bit and lift this man up in prayer. He needs them right now more than ever. He is carrying the weight of OUR country on his shoulders and I don’t think anybody could or would be doing a better job than he is.
Feel free to share this post and remind everyone to be kind and to pray for President Trump and for the entire world 🙏🏼❤️

Put God Back Where He Belongs

I think that one of the worse things that could happen to public schools is when Madeline O’Hare won the lawsuit to have anything and everything religious and having to do with God or Jesus, taken out of the schools. To me that was he beginning of the demise of America’s greatness. The airwaves were allowed to put sexually explicit things, vulgar things, cursing, just about anything bad you can think about was allowed over the air waves and on TV. Schools were no longer allowed to read the Bible, Pledge Allegiance to the American Flag, or sing the National Anthem. Funny this God can’t be taught or spoken about in schools, but Muslim faith can be freely taught ion public schools. There is something very wrong with this picture.

About that same time the law was passed to allow women to have abortions. They were allowed to kill a beating heart by calling the baby tissue, and fetus. Words that did not come close to sounding like baby or human being. So if you didn’t want the child you were carrying you could kill it by calling it an abortion. But if you wanted the baby and someone hit you, kicked you, threw you down a flight of stairs, or any other thing that killed your baby, it was considered MURDER. Either way an innocent baby was killed, but since there was a law allowing abortions, it was OK.

Well, I think it’s about time for God to show His displeasure with us, and He’s doing it in a way that everybody can see. America needs to wake up and put God back where he belongs in our lives. After all, our great country was founded on Religious Freedom so we could worship how ever and wherever we wished and not have any problems. And look at where we are today. America has the highest death rate of any country in the WORLD. That’s not exactly anything to sneeze at.

I’ll stop here. But I hope you get the picture.

 

Assassination Similarities

 

I  thought some readers might like to read this.

 

THE ERIE ASSASSINATION SIMILARITIES
Have a history teacher explain this if they can:Abraham Lincoln was elected to Congress in 1846.
John F. Kennedy was elected to Congress in 1946.

Abraham Lincoln was elected President in 1860.
John F. Kennedy was elected President in 1960.

Both were particularly concerned with civil rights.

Both wives lost a child while living in the White House.

Both Presidents were shot on a Friday.

Both Presidents were shot in the head.

NOW IT GETS REALLY WEIRD-

Lincoln’s secretary was named Kennedy.
Kennedy’s Secretary was named Lincoln.

Both were assassinated by Southerners.

Both were succeeded by Southerners named Johnson.

Andrew Johnson, who succeeded Lincoln, was born in 1808.
Lyndon Johnson, who succeeded Kennedy, was born in 1908.

John Wilkes Booth, who assassinated Lincoln, was born in 1839.
Lee Harvey Oswald, who assassinated Kennedy, was born in 1939.

Both assassins were known by their three names.

Both names are composed of fifteen letters.

NOW HANG ON TO YOUR SEAT-

Lincoln was shot at the theater named “Ford.”
Kennedy was shot in a car called “Lincoln” made by “Ford.”

Booth and Oswald were assassinated before their trials.

AND HERE’S THE KICKER-

A week before Lincoln was shot, he was in Monroe, Maryland.
A week before Kennedy was shot, he was with Marilyn Monroe.

AND:

Lincoln was shot in a theater and the assassin ran to a warehouse.
Kennedy was shot from a warehouse and the assassin ran to a theater.
