Some of the most important decisions in controlling the COVID-19 pandemic include avoiding interpersonal contact, disinfecting hands after touching skills and following forces rules of breathing etiquette. At the same time we notice that we are increasingly lacking social contacts.
What’s the matter with that ongoing disinfecting of everything? Of course, hygiene is important. Nevertheless, we would like to raise the question of who came up with the rule that hands, tables, door handles, and other surfaces have to be disinfected constantly.
It has been about nine months now, that the new Corona virus is on its conquest around the globe. It forwards from host to host, efficiently spreading on every continent. Proud of being a serious and independent platform, we refrained from publishing any news on the matter in the first months of insecurity.
Welcome to the 300th article that you read on Corona. But what do we know about our lung, besides its function for breathing? One of the few experts on the matter is Prof. Michael Schloter of Helmholtz Zentrum Munich, Germany.
A healthy microbiome and a healthy diet are among the fundamental factors that can aid the immune system in shaking off the virus. And, if you suddenly end up in a quarantine in your own home because of infection or a curfew, it could be good to stock up on food.
