Weill Cornell fellow of pulmonology, Dr. David Price, in New York City, shares information in a Mar. 22 Zoom call with family and friends on empowering and protecting families during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Dr. Price shares information with his friends and family on a Zoom call on March 22, 2020 and an empowering message on how to protect families during the COVID-19 pandemic.
His Key Message:
- COVID is in your community right now.
- You don’t need to be afraid of COVID-19 and your neighbors, IF YOU FOLLOW THE RULES.
- Spread is happening almost exclusively from respiratory droplets from your hands to your face.
- Current medical belief is that it can be through aerosol transmission, but only through long sustained contact with a sick person in closed spaces (15 – 20 min). This is why heath care providers on the front lines without protection are getting sick. The general public following THE RULES will not.
- Children between 0 -14 still don’t seem to show symptoms, but people from 15 – 105 are and are all experiencing varied levels of issues and being put on respirators. This is not simply affecting an older population and at-risk population, but more so.
- Use telemedicine. Don’t go to the hospital unless you are short of breath. If you suspect or have COVID, quarantine at home.
- Know where your hands are and have been and clean all the time. If you keep your hands clean you won’t get COVID-19. Walk around with hand sanitizer. Use it every time you touch something when you are outside of your controlled environment and touch something.
- Don’t Touch Your Face. Wear a mask to train yourself not to touch your face. The public does not need N95 masks to keep from getting COVID. Wear a mask to train yourself not touch your face as well as send a message to others that you are tasking this seriously.
- Social Distance. Shrink your social circle to your immediate isolation group of 3 – 4 people and set boundaries. When you go to the store, keep 6 feet away from people to avoid contact.
