This is a very highly contagious disease that is transmitted readily person to person leading to exponential in crease in new cases. While young healthy children and young adults are likely to have few or minimum symptoms, they will still spread the virus to those who are more likely to develop a severe pneumonia.
Those with chronic health condition such as diabetes, heart disease, severe obesity, lung disease, those with an autoimmune condition(s) on disease risk. If this happens 10-20% expected to need hospitalization and oxygen treatments and potentially a ventilator. Cases in China, Japan, South Korea, Italy and Spain we can see have increased every few days. This is likely to occur in North America unless we dramatically change our behaviors.
Let’s use the tools given by our state and local public health officials who are working to slow this epidemic and dramatically make the necessary changes.
It is our duty to focus on the public health issues, leadership will save lives.
From all of us with Dr.Wahls, Wahls professional, health Practitioner/Health Professionals lets follow state and local public health and infectious experts in the National Institute of Health.
Stay home, stay healthy, and stay calm,
