Even at 25 C, the virus can survive on surfaces for five days.

It's not the heat but the UV light.

"Sunlight will cut the virus's ability to grow in half, so the half-life will be 2.5 minutes, and in the dark it's about 13 to 20 minutes. Sunlight is really good at killing viruses," Nicholls said.

Peak Prosperity sounded the alarm on the virus on January 24th. He was ridiculed at the time... and was spot on. Late February, he said if you haven't prepped by now, it's probably too late. Few days later, stores were cleaned out.

Here's his latest video where he's reviewing claims made by people that this virus is no big deal.

PLEASE PEOPLE

Do more complete research.

The 1918 -- 1919 Spanish influenza pandemic peaked in August 1918.


I wrote a thesis on this. And graduated with a 4.0

The sole guaranteed way to beat the virus if you are at high risk is to avoid it

Thanks to loose lips there is a complete shortage of cloroquine ARALEN and hydroxycloroquine PLAQUENIL to treat my USA Rx meaning prescipted medicine for rheumatoid arthritis in my spine. The Rx is permanent written by a rheumatologist.

Complete shortage means NONE ANYWHERE and no date for restocking.

Please act responsibly not just give it a passing thought

And any doctor who is not a rheumatologist or internal medicine specialist who Rx cloroquine ARALEN, and does not demand the patient undergo a FULL PANEL blood test every 90 days does not belong Rxing the cloroquine in the first place. Hydroxycloroquine PLAQUENIL was developed exclusively to avoid potential long term lethal complications of original CLOROQUINE.

Ask your doctor or druggist about the two drugs. I developed near lethal low blood platelet levels in Mexico many years ago. Plaquenil then was not available anywhere. The danger? Spontaneous internal hemorraging. Always always double check this stuff with an internal medicine doctor. Oh the garbage on the internet did not warn you about acute photosensitivity? Par for the course.

"Treatment of COVID-19 with chloroquine or hydroxychloroquine
Key Points: There is insufficient evidence that chloroquine or hydroxychloroquine will prevent COVID-19

Data to date are preliminary and pertain to viral shedding no effect on disease morbidity or mortality has been demonstrated."

There is the question of "loading". Ask an internal medicine specialist, rheumatologist or a pharmacist. Quinine type analogs are extremely slow acting. Your specialist knows best.

For those still visiting national parks, a bunch of them are closed, so make sure to call ahead.

In the news today, MSN for one.

Some people just have no morals at all:

"Actor Keith Middlebrook arrested by FBI for allegedly peddling bogus coronavirus cure.

Federal agents on Wednesday arrested a Southern California man who allegedly claimed to have a cure for the coronavirus and was selling the fake antidote using Earvin “Magic” Johnson’s name as a ruse to lure investors.

Middlebrook, who held small-time uncredited roles in “Iron Man 3,” “Thor” and “Moneyball,” delivered pills to a federal agent posing as a potential investor after he allegedly claimed to have personally developed a “patent-pending cure” for COVID-19, the global pandemic that has since ravaged the world, the agency said in a statement released Wednesday."


This is being posted as a 'warning' to not be taken in by false claims/cures, etc.

Bill Gates: Returning to normal life in April is not realistic

I think we will need to wait until May for this to get over the hump.
