So back to today’s topic, breaking it down, our health.

To understand the corona virus, we need to first understand its cousin, or maybe it’s the sister or uncle sha, the Influenza Virus. I remember back in the day when I was taking my nursing exams, this disease confused me so much for some reason. To fully understand what I’m going to say, I’ll start at the beginning, first, what is a virus, A virus is a submicroscopic infectious agent that replicates and multiplies only inside the living cells of an organism. They are found in almost every ecosystem on Earth and are the most numerous type of biological entity as defined by wikipedia.

By the influenza virus ‘

Risk factors

Symptoms

High fever

Dry cough

Sore throat

Fatigue

Chills & headaches.

Complications

Viral or bacterial Pneumonia

Diagnosis

Diagnosis can be made through your symptoms and by a nasal rapid flu test if it is really needed otherwise the practitioner can diagnose the flu with the presenting symptoms.

Treatment

Stay home throughout the length of time that you’re sick

Get a lot of rest and drink lots of fluids

Antiviral drugs are given almost only if caught within the first day or two of symptoms.

At the end of the day, you still need a lot of support of family and friends because a tree cannot make a forest, and no man is an island and no man should be an island. I used to think I could do it all on my own. Thank God for our technology, even though everyone is in isolation now but pls make use of your facetime now.

Covid 19 is 10 x the flu almost because the spread is like fire, once it touches a tree, if there are leaves nearby of other trees, that tree will catch fire as well. If we stay home, that’s like taking all the trees nearby out of the equation so that the burning tree can have time to die down, once it does, the virus is stopped, then other trees can have a chance to florish. Its like a zombie movie, when one person sacrifices his or herself for three people to keep running the race to safety for humanity. It takes sacrifice of time, of distance and been patient,

I will not leave without saying, so many things have happened since the beginning of this year, this is not the time to cry, this is not the time to be sad, this is not the time to be depressed, but this is the time to think deeply about where our future is going from here on out, This is the time to move closer to God, not far away from him. If you have been saying tomorrow I will go to church, guess what there’s no physical church now, serve God wherever you are in the comfort of your house, you have all the time now, technology has made that easy for us but we’re not implementing it to save our souls. I’ve always been talking about living in peace, you see how that person that stepped on your toe two days ago doesn’t matter to you anymore, that person that didn’t greet you at the supermarket, do you care about them now? That person that didn’t give you a hug yesterday doesn’t matter anymore.

Let us focus on God, he can secure our souls once our physical bodies expire on this earth, whether due to Corona or whatever is coming after the virus. I repeat, Let us focus on God now more than ever, He is the only one that can secure our souls once our physical bodies expire on this earth, whether due to Corona or whatever is coming after the virus.

Thank you very much for watching this episode.

God willing, we are on this earth for an average of 75-80yrs.

Let’s not waste any of that precious time on matters that don’t help us positively in some way.

You have a decision to make, if not now, maybe later, the ball is in your court.

Ask questions if you have any, don’t hesitate to leave a comment as well.
