Thoughts While Shaving for March 29

Many, maybe most area churches will not be meeting today, as they normally do, but many will have worship services … online … many on Facebook. … Most have websites with the services or direction for services today…

Everyone keeps talking about “coronavirus” and “COVID-19.” Which is it?

Discovered info recently … and I share. … “Technically, either of these terms could be correct, depending on how they are used. The actual virus that appeared in China at the end of 2019 and has since hopped across the world is called “SARS-CoV.” is short for “Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome” and “coronavirus.” Once the virus gets into a person, it can cause an illness known as “Coronavirus Disease 2019,” or COVID-19. Also, you might hear it referred to as a “novel coronavirus,” which means that scientists already knew about other coronaviruses, such as the one that caused an outbreak of SARS in Asia in 2003.”

How does COVID-19 affect people?

“The most common symptoms of COVID-19 include fever, cough and/or shortness of breath. A person might development one or more of these symptoms in as few as two days after exposed to the virus, but they may also not feel sick for up to two weeks after contact.

“Scientist say most people who get the virus will be able to fight it as they might a bad case of the flu, however some people will have a harder time than others. Elderly people seem to be especially vulnerable, as are those with other conditions such as a heart disease, lung disease or diabetes. Some people who have the virus won’t even realize it, but in the worst cases, COVID-19 can result in death. Fortunately, death is extremely unlikely to happen in infected children and teenagers.”

Hope this info is helpful…

Remember, when the outbreak was described by some as a political hoax?…

“Positive thoughts and prayer have been the best means available, since the beginning of time, to transform darkness into light.” Cate Stevens

“No matter how dark the moment, love and hope are always possible.” George Chakiris

“It is often in the darkest skies that we see the brightest stars.” Richard Evans
