Covid19 Lockdown South Africa 2020 Our Covid message (April 2020)
First and most of all, I want you, my friends and customers to still be with us when this is all over,
so let's bite the bullet and take this time to prepare our armor of PPE, common sense knowledge, social distancing and hygiene.
Let this lockdown be our first defense, the fortification we run to now that the Covid enemy threatens so many.
Be sure further defenses of prophylactics and vaccines will soon be to hand. We know great minds are racing toward these goals, and toward a cure to blast the virus, right now!
To our leaders, here and worldwide, who are diverting huge resources and making fortunes available to help and protect us common people in this fight:
To our health workers and first responders, to all those dedicating their lives and time to help mankind: We thank and salute you!
Springtime in South Africa now and we've gone to Covid lockdown level 1. That's the best level next to no restrictions.
Local Recovery period from Covid deemed to be 14 days
A number of my family and friends here did contract and (thankfully) recover from Covid.
T, one of my granddaughters was quite ill for a few days. She was sharing accommodation with her sister who did not get Covid. However both had to isolate for two weeks. After that T was told to go back to work, since she no longer had symptoms.
In level 2 lockdown we were allowed to have our hair cut. Now after so many months with no barbers allowed to cut hair, my hair grew quite long, so I went to my barber. In the meantime, may barber also had had, and had recovered from Covid. Actually I only visited him once I knew that tidbit of information, trusting that that somehow would be protection from him passing on Covid to me (he, my barber, being in the Covid firing line so to speak).
I have been checking the World-O-Meter stats every day, longing for the infection and recovery rates to improve, however stats fluctuate so widely, they must be called into question. Nevertheless I'll share what I see with you: (World-O-Meter recovery rate = active cases/newly recovered)
USA over the last few days:
The Covid recovery period for the USA Ranges from a high of 106 days on the 18th Oct to a low of 35 days on the 16th Oct!
The India Standard
India's recovery period has consistently been around 12 days. This makes logical sense, and to make consistent sense, every country in the world should be around their level.
Anyway, check out the tables below:
In the USA's World-O-Meter stats, the Grand Princess Ship still shows 100 people statically and chronically unrecovered since March this year!
Meaningless stats simply create a false narrative.
Our sincere good wishes to you Mr President and to you First Lady Melania!
Our hearts and good wishes go out to you both, wishing you a speedy recovery and for you both to come out stronger than ever!
On the evening of Oct 11th President Trump declared his doctors had given him the green light to work again.
President Trump declares he is now immune from Covid, and we are very pleased to hear that good news. Now First Lady Melania also recovers from Covid
Read her very moving account of the course of her illness.
There are exceptions to every rule, so of course there will be (a few out of millions) to the above rule.
Many people are naturally immune to Covid, how many and why, we may never know;
but let's look at what these recoveries mean according to the World-O-Meter stats:
1. On 21st Oct 2020 the world gained 283,571 more immune people
2. The world now has a total of 30,902,996 (yes, 30 million and counting) more immune people
3. The USA gained 56,497 more immune people
4. Above those who are naturally immune from Covid the USA now has 5,602,116 extra people now immune from Covid!
Has SA's illegal trade in chloroquine contributed to South Africa's low Covid death rate? Check out the article: 5 tons chloroquine destroyed! The story seems to indicate:
Legal chloroquine is difficult to obtain in SA causing a massive illegal trade.
Obviously, South Africans believe in the effectiveness of chloroquine and don't believe that they currently have access to the right treatments or prophylactics to counter Covid, e.g. my granddaughter was told to take vitamins for her Covid as there is no cure for it! Clearly SA echos the WHO Covid view
but the tons of drugs getting imported illegally show most people do not believe them.
