Funny, I mentioned to friends the other day that now I feel like I want to wash my hands after coming out of the bathroom.

I guess a reason to carry those sanitizing wipes.

I have never wiped down grocery store carts until this week.

Fondled can food, box food and wrapped food can carry pathogens for a long time.

Far longer than the longevity of a sterilization towel wipe down.

You need to sterilize EVERYTHING including money which is, by far, the worst offender.

IODINE DILUTED in water is by far the best sterilizing treatment. Wipe down cardboard and submerge fruits and vegetables for 5 min. I have a second bucket for rinsing.

Surprise! Treated fruits and veggies last much longer in the refrigerator.

Your hands dunked in 15 liters of water treated with five tablespoons of iodine will keep killing pathogens for 24 hours but do not rinse.

The above is the product of actual experience and university. It is not guesswork

It kept me safe in a small village in Oaxaca for 10 days during a bad typhoid fever outbreak. The bridge was fixed and I departed.

Anyone notice the how rapidly this spread? Anyone? Does that tell you something?

I don't get flu shots and will never. But this one has me concerned. It is not your average flu but something much more sinister. I don't watch tv but I do read statistics. I am not afraid but I am taking precautions. If you want to go out in large groups, go for it but don't drag it back to me.

Florida state parks are closed for camping as of friday at 1pm. More info to come.



MODERATOR'S EDIT: Per the site Admin's request, I am closing all COVID-19 threads and directing future comments to one thread in Around the Campfire.
