Suddenly Our Lives Changed...

The concepts of health and global wellness are now forever changed, forever altered. Institutions are grappling with the " light at the end of the tunnel." So, please support our heroic health providers on the front line! Our nation's ER nurses and doctors are asking-pleading with the public to stay at home. They know it is the only way to calm the spread of more disease. 

Who would have predicted a global pandemic just a few months ago? Actually, a lot of people, experts in environmental-infectious diseases were aware. They saw it coming in a big way. For over a decade, they've warned us about the real threats of viral and bacterial infections. Even so, such vital research was not attached to a consistent and broad-reaching action plan. Thus our nation suffered the consequence.

The situation is a tough-love lesson for our country and humanity. Today,  we're all confronted by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which is the newest viral mutation in a growing family of Coronaviruses.

The acute symptom of SARS-CoV-2 involves a range of mild to severe problems with the lungs, which can lead to what's known as Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). However, there are many mysteries.

The virus appears to incubate in the respiratory system for up to 14 days or longer before issues arise. This worrisome time frame is defined as the period between being exposed to the disease and when symptoms of COVID-19 first begin. Mysteriously, one individual has contacted the SARS-CoV2. and treated with an investigational drug. -- interesting clinical observations.

Since this can be an airborne-respiratory illness, people wonder if risks from viral particles in the air should be of concern. Meaning they question whether SARS-CoV-2 can become aerosol and remain suspended in the air. One study suggests it is possible. While other aerosol studies indicate that this is not the case, the controversy will continue. Nonetheless, more precautions are taken now.

Guarding Against the Spread of More Respiratory Illness

When examining how a virus spreads through physical-chemical forces, an aerosol form of contamination is different. Perhaps it's a more contagious state compared with when a virus lies on a surface. For instance, fog is considered aerosol, a state of water droplets suspended in the air.
 
Viral particles may be suspended for several minutes or hours, depending on factors such as heat and humidity. If virus particles from mucus or saliva are suspended in the air for more than two hours, as the measles virus can be, then anyone passing through that viral cloud may become infected.

However that noted, this does not mean we are guaranteed to catch the bug.

Institutions such as the World Health Organization (WHO), which monitors the spread of viruses from person-to-person, are providing ongoing estimates of the rate of infection of SARS-Cov-2, giving guidelines about prevention and maintaining updates about the microbe. Go to Worldometers for the lastest live and straight-forward data.

Beyond this, most people are greatly concerned, as they should be, about the infectiousness of SARS-CoV-2. But even with information from official sources, we still don't know how bad things will get or if there will be reoccurrences?

Some experts expect the incidents of COVID-19 to peak in about 30 days, and others predict a longer time frame.  Another unknown time frame is how COVID-19 will respond to changes in the seasons. The flu tends to follow cold weather, both in the northern and southern hemispheres. Some other human coronaviruses spread at a low level year-round, but then seem to peak in the spring. But nobody really knows for sure why these viruses vary with the seasons

These are the primary steps needed to level off the rapid rise of SARS-CoV-2 in the population. Isolation and social distancing of at least six feet and self-imposed quarantine are necessary. When washing one's hands, it's suggested a person do that in no less the length of time required to sing a round of "Happy Birthday."  

Shutdowns due to the contagion are happening in major cities. In Los Angeles beaches are off-limits as of March 27th. Some beaches are open. The Rose Bowl trails in Pasadena is closed to walkers as of March 30. 

Free Information and Online Programs to Help People Cope

At the office, we are answering calls and sending out free informational sessions. 

In turn, our customers know to take specific plant-based supplements, routinely! They also know to eat healthily, to add more cooked vegetables to their plate---but avoid eating raw veggies just for the time being.

We are also finding ways to connect our community to online exercise and medical meditation programs.

Here are our free community services? What We Do:

At Ziquin life, we are doing our part by providing to our community hard-to-find ingredients. We support women and their families with the kind of attention that suits their specific needs with information that is made-easy- to-use.

We specialize in nutritional supplement strategy and lifestyle change with an emphasis on a practical and rational plan for immune system support.

Aerosol and Surface Stability of SARS-CoV-2 as Compared with SARS-https://www.nejm.org/doi/10.1056/NEJMc2004973

SARS-CoV-2 remained viable in aerosols throughout the duration of our experiment (3 hours), with a reduction in infectious titer from 103.5 to 102.7 TCID50 per liter of air. This reduction was similar to that observed with SARS-CoV-1, from 104.3 to 103.5 TCID50 per milliliter.

SARS-CoV-2 was more stable on plastic and stainless steel than on copper and cardboard, and viable virus was detected up to 72 hours after application to these surfaces (Figure 1A), although the virus titer was greatly reduced (from 103.7 to 100.6 TCID50 per milliliter of medium after 72 hours on plastic and from 103.7 to 100.6 TCID50 per milliliter after 48 hours on stainless steel). The stability kinetics of SARS-CoV-1 were similar (from 103.4 to 100.7 TCID50 per milliliter after 72 hours on plastic and from 103.6 to 100.6 TCID50 per milliliter after 48 hours on stainless steel). On copper, no viable SARS-CoV-2 was measured after 4 hours and no viable SARS-CoV-1 was measured after 8 hours. On cardboard, no viable SARS-CoV-2 was measured after 24 hours and no viable SARS-CoV-1 was measured after 8 hours.
