In four straight days, U.S. hits above 1,000 new deaths per day from COVID-19. In 30 days, that’s 30,000 deaths. By December, about 120,000 more on top of today’s 146,420 total number of COVID-19 related deaths.
California, Texas and Florida named by White House health expert Dr. Birx as essentially the 3 New York’s of Coronavirus.
We are at an emergency and disaster mode being at the epicenter of it all but when I look around me, it’s like a normal day under the beautiful California Sun except some are wearing masks.
The challenge, we stop more deaths from happening by stopping the infection spread with 5 steps. I will not call it easy or simple steps because it’s not. It needs consistency and hard work for it to be successful. These steps however are not new. We’re already familiar and doing most, if not all of them.
STOP COVID-19 CHALLENGE 5 STEPS
Step 1: Wear a Mask.
Step 2: Social Distancing of 6 feet or more. Avoid social gatherings of 10 people or more. Avoid crowded indoor places and visit them only during their least busiest hours or days.
Step 3: Wash hands frequently for 20 seconds or use Hand Sanitizer.
Step 4: Disinfect frequently all possible contaminated surfaces.
Step 5: Be mindful. Be vigilant. Never be off guard. Stay informed. Stop listening to people who believes the pandemic is not real. They will not support your family when you are gone. They will not help you financially if you can no longer work because of the long term multi-systemic complications of COVID-19 or you got laid off.
We love challenges. Many of them had gone viral in You Tube because it’s fun, it’s cool, or it’s awesome. This challenge is a bit more serious but I assure you, it will be cool and awesome when we stop COVID-19 because only then can we fully go back to the lifestyle and normal we all used to enjoy.
