When Traveling, Early Detection of the Coronavirus

Early Detection For Travelers for The Coronavirus

Since I posted this article, I discovered that the information it contailed was inaccurate. For the correct information about preventing the coronavirus, please read the following.

Posts are circulating false and misleading tips on social media — in some cases wrongly attributed to Stanford University — about how people can monitor and avoid the coronavirus.

Full Story
As the U.S. and countries around the world work to address the pandemic spread of COVID-19, posts disseminated by tens of thousands on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter are feeding misinformation to people about how to avoid and self-test for the disease caused by the novel coronavirus.

The posts provide a series of supposed tips about the virus, such as wrongly instructing people to hold their breath to gauge whether they’ve been infected and falsely suggesting that water consumption can kill the virus. Similar claims were promoted in a text-based image posted on the Instagram account of actress Debra Messing, which has since been deleted. They were also shared widely in screenshots on Twitter.

The posts in some cases cite “Taiwan experts” or “Japanese doctors,” and many begin by falsely sourcing the text to “STANFORD HOSPITAL BOARD.” Stanford Health Care has debunked that attribution.

We consulted Krys Johnson, an assistant professor of epidemiology and biostatistics at Temple University, who called the posts “deeply troubling because they make incorrect and dangerous claims.” She recommended people consult the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, or the World Health Organization, before spreading purported health advice.

Here are some of the claims from the posts, and why they’re inaccurate:

Claim: “Take a deep breath and hold your breath for more than 10 seconds. If you complete it successfully without coughing, without discomfort, stiffness or tightness, etc., it proves there is no Fibrosis in the lungs, basically indicates no infection.”

Facts: There’s no evidence to suggest this is a valid test for COVID-19. What’s more: “We know that people infected with coronavirus show symptoms within 14 days and that this virus can lead to severe complications,” Johnson told us via email, “but those are acute respiratory distress (not being able to breathe) and septic shock (the virus infecting your bloodstream), not fibrosis, as mentioned here.”

The CDC recommends seeking medical advice by phone if you develop the main symptoms of COVID-19 — fever, cough and shortness of breath — and have been in contact with someone who has the disease, or have recently traveled to an area experiencing a spread of the virus.

Claim: “If you have a runny nose and sputum, you have a common cold … Coronavirus pneumonia is a dry cough with no runny nose.”

Facts: While the most common symptoms of COVID-19 are “fever, tiredness, and dry cough,” according to WHO, some patients do have “aches and pains, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat or diarrhea.” Some who are infected don’t show any symptoms. Also, a WHO report said that, based on an examination of more than 55,000 confirmed COVID-19 cases, 33% had sputum (phlegm) production.

Claim: “Everyone should ensure your mouth & throat are moist, never dry. Take a few sips of water every 15 minutes at least. Why? Even if the virus gets into your mouth, drinking water or other liquids will wash them down through your throat and into the stomach. Once there, your stomach acid will kill all the virus.”

Facts: The WHO has shot down this theory, saying that, “[w]hile staying hydrated by drinking water is important for overall health, it does not prevent coronavirus infection.”

Likewise, Johnson said that the “moistness of your mouth and throat have nothing to do with the likelihood that you will develop disease, and simply drinking water to ‘rinse’ your digestive track will not prevent you from being infected or from getting sick.” Water consumption, she added, “has no bearing on the virus getting into your airways and lungs; if you breathe in an infected person’s respiratory droplets, the virus will travel through your airways.”

CDC officials recommend people clean their hands often, for at least 20 seconds — or use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol as an alternative — and avoid touching their faces and mouths. They also suggest social distancing, which can help curb the spread of the virus.

Claim: “This new virus is not heat-resistant and will be killed by a temperature of just 26/27 degrees.”

Facts: What, exactly, these posts are referencing is unclear. The CDC has said it’s “not yet known whether weather and temperature impact the spread of COVID-19.” We’ve previously written about how it’s unknown whether warming weather will help temper the outbreak.

The WHO has said there is “no reason to believe that this virus would behave differently in different temperatures.” Johnson noted that Italy “has a particularly mild winter and they have had widespread transmission of COVID-19, so it is unlikely that the outside temperature will affect this disease.”

More than 125,000 people across the globe have been infected by the coronavirus, leading to more than 4,700 deaths. We’ve reported on many falsehoods and misleading statements about the new coronavirus.

Luggage Delivery Gaffe Almost Caused NFL Game Forfeiture

Arrie No Comments

As an avid sports fan, I have seen almost every sort of finish imaginable. I've seen walk-off grand slams, last second buzzer-beating 3-pointers, I've seen Tiger and Serena storm back and win after incredibly slow starts. I was actually present during the infamous pine tar game at Yankee Stadium, and the replaying of the final 2 outs.

But what almost happened in Foxborough in this past Sunday's tilt between the Chiefs and Patriots would have been a first for me. Bad Luggage handling almost caused this game to be forfeited. Read the following from Doha Madani over at NBC News

An equipment container containing some of the Kansas City Chiefs' shoulder pads, helmets and footballs has arrived in Foxborough, Massachusetts, after it was mistakenly sent to Newark, New Jersey, a team spokesman said Sunday.

The container was not unloaded Saturday and instead accidentally made its way to Newark, then had to be rushed back to Boston in time for Sunday's 4:30 p.m. ET kickoff between the Chiefs and the New England Patriots.

The container held the bags of roughly 35 players, according to a source. If the Chiefs hadn't gotten the equipment by the time the game started, they would have had to forfeit, per a source. Kansas City was responsible, not the Patriots or the league. The Chiefs did not take the equipment off the plane.

"I never heard that before," one source said.

Atlanta Botanical Garden

The Atlanta Botanical Garden offers a lovely space with a variety of well laid out gardens. The idea for the garden was presented in the early 1970s and by the early 1980s the garden saw its first visitors. Over the decades since it opened the complex has gradually expanded with new gardens, new features, and new programs.

The Botanical Garden is a great place year round, with something always in bloom. Spring is, of course, an amazing time with a riot of colors. Some of the highlights include the Orchid Display House in the Fuqua Orchid Center, the Rose Garden, the Winter Garden, the Japanese Garden, the Conservation Garden, and the Desert House. What there is to see will depend somewhat on the time of year you are visiting. However, the indoor gardens are always pleasant to wander through. Address: 1345 Piedmont Avenue, Atlanta, GA 30309, United States

How to Maintain Comfort and Health While Flying

Arrie No Comments

*** g02 7/8 p. 28 Watching the World ***
Healthy Flying
For a more pleasant flight, Mexico City’s newspaper El Universal suggests the following: (1) Because air on board planes can be very dry, drink plenty of liquids. (2) Dry air can irritate the eyes, so wear eyeglasses instead of contact lenses. (3) Do simple exercises at your seat to relax your muscles and stimulate circulation in your legs. (4) Take a walk down the aisle every so often. (5) Wear shoes that are easy to remove, and use a footrest—perhaps your overnight bag. (6) Wear comfortable, wrinkle-free clothing made of natural fibers to allow your skin to breathe. (7) Drink alcoholic beverages moderately or not at all, as altitude increases the effects of alcohol. (8) Adjust the air-conditioning so that it does not directly hit your neck or back. (9) Try to sleep, preferably using an eye mask. (10) Chew something during takeoff and landing to alleviate pressure in the ears. Babies can be given a pacifier.

It also helps to make pre-flight preparations for known travel issues such as waiting for luggage in baggage claim or dragging bags around until your accommodations become available. These issues can be solved by pre-ordering luggage delivery or luggage storage.

Is Flying Still Safe?

*** Awake 02 12/8 p. 3 Is Flying Still Safe? ***

FOUR jetliners hijacked. Four crashes. The destruction of familiar landmarks. The image of a 767 jetliner smashing through one of the Twin Towers, shown over and over on television.
The attacks of September 11, 2001, brought us into a chilling new era of terrorist aggression. Airlines became the means to a deadly objective, and aircraft became incendiary devices.
As a result, a new pattern of fearful fliers has emerged: Those who used to feel safe but are now shaken by the possibility of terrorist attacks. Moreover, a series of nonterrorism-related fatal airline accidents after September 11 has accentuated the fear of flying for many.
Admittedly, air travel is a luxury beyond the reach of millions worldwide. For others, however, flying is a routine necessity. For those with jobs that require a great deal of business travel, stepping aboard a plane is unavoidable. Christian missionaries and ministers often have to take long flights to and from their assignments. Even for poor people, an aircraft is sometimes the only suitable means of transportation during a medical emergency. And thousands of pilots and flight crews make a living by flying.
Many of these air travelers, perhaps unnerved themselves, are having to calm anxious spouses and frightened children before they leave home. And as departures that were once routine become ordeals, travelers wonder if flying is still a preferred way to travel.
To address such concerns, Awake! consulted with security experts, airport personnel, airline officials, and aircraft maintenance workers. They all seem to agree on this: Although flying has remained one of the safest means of travel, new threats call for new measures to increase the security of the traveling public.
Keep on the lookout. The upcoming articles will discuss the challenges involved and what you can do personally to increase your safety and comfort while flying.

 

WHEN IS BEING SEPARATED FROM LUGGAGE A GOOD THING?

Arrie One comments

The days of dragging baggage to and through airports may be coming to an end.

Consider the experience of Donald Travis, a managing partner at a retail technology consultancy based in Austin, Texas on a flight last fall from Austin to Atlanta.

Mr. Travis made a reservation for door-to-door luggage delivery a few days before his flight on the BAGij app, a baggage pickup and storage service that began business in Atlanta in 2014. A few days before his flight, a company representative arrived at his home to pick up his two large pieces of luggage. When he arrived at his hotel in Atlanta, the bags were waiting in his room.

"It was peace of mind not to lug it on public transportation," said Mr. Travis, who paid about $138 for the service. He paid no airline baggage fee and did not have to wait in baggage claim. He was reunited with his bags at his hotel.

BAGij's concierge luggage services attests to what air travel has become: navigating a series of bottlenecks.

"To remove the bag from the journey is to change the journey," said one CEO, who said that as a regular BAGij customer and frequent flier himself he looks for ways to maximize his time and minimize costs. "The customer experience starts on the doorstep, not at the airport."

Several factors ae prompting the adaptation of luggage shipping. Perhaps the biggest driver is the lack of capacity at most large established airports. The cost, disruption and revenue impact of building new infrastructure to handle baggage checking and screening is significant. Airports and airlines are recognizing that the more processing that can take place away from the airport, the less pressure on constrained infrastructure.

BAGij offers services that touch the passenger at each point when they want to get rid of their baggage. Hotel guests not yet ready to leave the area would store their luggage at the hotel, only to have to come back to the hotel to retrieve it before traveling to the airport. BAGij has eliminated that step.

Still, the baggage check fees are profitable for the carriers and airlines do not want to lose that revenue to concierge luggage delivery services, like BAGij. In 2017, according to data from the United States Department of Transportation, the airlines earned $4.6 billion, up from $4.2 billion a year earlier, from those baggage check fees.

If a bag goes astray, though, it is costly for the airlines and frustrating for the traveler. Peter Drummond, head of the baggage portfolio at SITA, an information technology company, estimated that it costs $100 to return a mishandled bag (the industry term) to its owner. "It could be the best journey in the world, but if your bag is not there at the end of that journey it ruins the experience for the traveler," he said.

With BAGij, the end of the journey for luggage is the delivery destination, not baggage claim.
