KEEPING AS SAFE AS YOU CAN
|Study of more than
10 academic papers leads me to
believe there is a lot more you can do to reduce your chance of
infection and improve your road to recovery.
DO YOUR BEST WITH WHAT YOU HAVE.
No changes should be made in the treatment of an illness without consulting your doctor.
Suggestions are made based on the evidence available which is incomplete and any action is taken at your own risk.
The suggestions do not represent a cure for influenza or COVID-19 but are designed as measures to marginally reduce the risks of infection and transmission. They are not a substitute for any medical advice you receive.
If the European infection levels die down during May and June as Summer comes it could be expected that the Southern Hemisphere could be infected more severely. South Africa may be badly hit very shortly and all measures to save lives must be considered.
Boiling water in a small room will raise humidity and reduce the spread of infection to others. Preferably half litre per hour should be used to allow for some ventilation. Some moisture will gather on cold walls but a mirror in the room should not steam. If you have a humidifier aim for 80% but anything above 40% will be beneficial.
