Chinese authorities heavily spray disinfectant on people and cities to halt spread of coronavirus
(NaturalHealth365) As promised, we’re back with the latest coronavirus update based on the current news about what the Chinese government has decided to do to “control” the spread of this deadly virus. No doubt, when you watch the videos (below) – you will be shocked!
Officially named COVID-19, the coronavirus has currently infected over 77,000 people, and over 2,300 people have lost their lives as a result of grave complications caused by the virus – including pneumonia, kidney problems, and severe acute respiratory infection, or SARI.
Among the dead are two former passengers of the infamous cruise liner Diamond Princess, which made waves in last week’s headlines (no pun intended).
Officials all over the world are ramping up their frantic attempts to control the spread of the virus – for instance, by barring travel and putting entire cities in China on lockdown. And we’re sure many of you have been as astounded as we’ve been by the chilling, dystopian-like videos and photos coming out of China, which show trucks and men in hazmat suits spraying disinfectant everywhere.
What are these chemicals – and will they even stop the virus?
What is the Chinese government spraying over its population?
Video footage all over YouTube is truly shocking! What began as massive chemical sprays over Chinese towns and cities on lockdown has devolved into men dressed in full hazmat gear walking into buildings and spraying disinfectant inside – with people mere feet away.
Of course, we can’t exactly say we’re surprised to see such extreme measures. COVID-19 is so incredibly contagious that we are now seeing infected people become “superspreaders” of the disease. For example, a single 61-year-old woman from South Korea has infected least 37 others from her church.
Prior to making others sick, the woman had allegedly refused to be tested for COVID-19 – even though she was exhibiting signs and symptoms including a fever.
Her reason? She hadn’t recently traveled abroad.
Severe travel restrictions initiated to and from China
According to the U.S. Department of State Bureau of Consular Affairs, there is a Level 4 travel advisory in China right now – the highest advisory possible, rated as “Do Not Travel.” “We strongly urge U.S. citizens remaining in China to stay home as much as possible and limit contact with others, including large gatherings,” the Bureau of Consular Affairs writes on their website.
They have even more sobering advice: “Consider stocking up on food and other supplies to limit movement outside the home. In the event that the situation deteriorates further, the ability of the U.S. Embassy and Consulates to provide assistance to U.S. nationals within China may be limited.”
Meanwhile, the United States is temporarily closing its borders to anyone who’s been to mainland China within the past two weeks.
If there’s one thing to takeaway from today’s coronavirus update, it’s this: even if you aren’t planning on traveling any time soon, you still need to be cautious. We know that thousands of people all over the world have fallen ill from this disease even though they haven’t done any traveling themselves.
And if you are going to travel – especially by air – keep these tips in mind:
- Stay away from people who are showing signs of an illness, including coughing and sneezing
- Wash your hands regularly
- If you’re using hand sanitizer avoid handling receipts, as these products appear to increase the amount of BPA chemicals absorbed through your skin
- And, above all, avoid processed sugars and maintain the healthiest (organic) diet possible – to keep your immune system strong!
One final note: should you bother with a face mask? Be warned: there’s no evidence that regular masks actually stop the spread of coronavirus.
This is because surgical masks aren’t made with material that’s rated to keep out viral particles and, unlike thicker N95 respirators, they don’t tightly fit against the face. A N95 respirators can protect against COVID-19 – but if people start buying these masks en masse … there may be a shortage.
