  1. Very interesting. Garlic and onion help the immune system to be more effective so that defeating coronavirus. There was a false rumour in Spain that said cocaine kills coronavirus. You see, there are people with a dark sense of humour.

  2. Got one wrong. I thought thermal scanners were effective in catching the infected people but in hindsight many people are asymptomatic so makes sense.

    Stay safe everyone. May we learn to be more compassionate as a virus has shown us it can bring the entire world to its knees. So much money spent on war and military expenditure when we could have made this world a much better place.

    My love, duas and best wishes for the entire Virilian community. 🙂

    • I claim no expertise in this area, so have stuck closely to the WHO info. According to their site, it can take between 2 and 10 days before people who are infected become sick and develop a fever, and the thermal imaging cannot detect anything till a fever occurs.

      I hope you and your family keep safe and healthy during these trying times. It’s very nice to have you visit 🙂

        • I agree 100%, Grace. Social distancing is extremely important. For over a week now, I have allowed no visits to our house, and I have been to the supermarket just once, wearing mask and gloves. But the question is, “what is the most effective way to protect yourself” and hand-washing is the correct answer, according to the World Health Organisation (and any other authority I have heard).

          • Social distancing is what we are doing here in India. It is called ‘Janta curfew’ which means People’s curfew. We are expected to stay indoors from 7 in the morning to 9 pm today and at 5 we are expected to clap hands to show our gratitude to those who are toiling such as doctors, nurses………..
