Synopsis

Longer years of healthy happy life deserve few hours of interesting reading.
In these uncertain times engulfed by clouds of doubts, suspicion, panic, lack of scientific and logical thinking, and inability to plan even for the near future, I have opted to decipher some haunting mysteries and disengage the alleged conflict between science and quackery.
Although we are still in the "crawling" stage to come at grips with the virus, we have a thousand-year repertoire of common sense, hundreds of years of development in preserving public health, and decades of evidence-based medicine. This book simplifies scientific terminology for the non-specialist reader.
Let’s explore together the accounts of Covidians; patients, families and professionals who encountered the monster, and Covidology; highly evidenced science of the epidemic.
This book is for you to read if you are interested in finding out how to prepare to the post-Covid era and lessons all of us need to learn from the pandemic, ordinary people, governments and the international community.
Your life and the lives of the dearest to your heart matter.

CORONAVIRUS AFTER RE-OPENING


While the world is reopening, we have very important

prevention advice in light of the latest scientific research

on ways of Covid-19 spread.

1. About 90% of cases of infection occur in closed

places. Do not be afraid of open spaces (streets,

beaches, gardens, etc.) and be very careful in closed

spaces, especially those crowded and poorly ventilated,

(means of transportation, homes, offices, elevators,

shops, cafes, restaurants, classrooms, lecture

halls, etc.).

2. In a large research conducted on more than two

thousand (2,000) cases, the houses were the first

place of infection followed by the means of transportation,

then the cafes and restaurants.

3. A comparison between buses and places of worship

found that in a certain incident a group of people

went to place of worship on a bus. The infection

spread among thirty-seven of them thirty-five of

whom on the bus and only two in the worship place.

4. In another incident, there was rehearsal for a concert

in Washington attended by (60) sixty people

fifty-two (52) of whom contracted the infection

from one asymptomatic person. This refutes the

unfounded claim of the WHO, which backtracked

on it later, that the asymptomatic patients do not

transmit infection.

5. Infection from frequently touched surfaces is uncommon,

but possible if you touch a surface freshly contaminated

and then touch mouth or nose within

minutes. This is more likely in common areas,

such as elevator buttons, public bathroom faucets,

doors knobs, computer keyboards, restaurant

menus, banknotes, ATMs, stairwell, and escalator

fences, shopping carts in the supermarket, etc. In

this regard, shaking hands is like surfaces.

6. The period of contact is very important in transmitting

infection: the longer the period, the greater

the risk of infection, and vice versa .For example,

if someone passes by you quickly, the chances of

transmitting the infection to you is very limited. If

you buy something from a store and go out in a few

minutes, the chances of contracting the infection

are low. If someone hangs out in the middle of the

store while people are passing by her, the chances

will increase.

7. The most common ways of infection are coughing

and sneezing in the face of a person followed by

talking closely with a person. If there is no coughing,

sneezing, or talking from a close distance, the

chances of infection are low and you will not contract

the virus unless you remain close for an hour

or more.

8. The effect of the mask decreases with the length of

the mingling period. If there is direct chat with a

person for more than five minutes, the effect of the

mask will decrease.

9. The crowd has a very big impact in spreading the

infection: parties, stuffed classes, weddings, small

worship places, theaters, busy banks and government

departments.

10. The conclusion is that we need to observe social

distancing, wear masks, use hand sanitizers, mingle

minimally when necessary, and go out in open

spaces. We should know that the confined, crowded

places with poor ventilation means infection by

more than ninety percent (90%) and close to one

hundred percent (100%) if you stay in the place for

more than a few minutes.

COVIDIOLA FOR TOMORROW

_______________________

In April 2020, a survey conducted by “you gov

UK” and the Royal agricultural society which

included 4343 subjects has found out that 91%

of people do not want life in the post-Covid era

to go back to how it was before the pandemic.

They said that the air is now cleaner due to

closure of factories, families are getting closer,

and there is more sense of community. The wild

life is being restored away from cruel human

interference. The survey contributors started

now to save more money, cook at home and

stopped buying junk.

“It shows a real appetite for change and to learn

from the crisis” said professor Tom Mcmillan

from the Royal Agricultural Society.
