Dr. FAHEM Yunus, Head of the Infectious Disease Clinic - University of Maryland USA: 1- We'll live with C19 for months... Let's not deny or panic. Let's not make our lives useless. Let's learn to be happy and live with this fact. 2- The virus won't reduce its effect in summer. It's summer in Brazil and Argentina, but the virus is spreading fast. 3- You can't destroy C19 viruses that have penetrated the cells by drinking too much water - you'll just go to the bathroom often. 4- Washing hands and maintaining a 2 m protection distance is the best method for protecting against the virus. If you don't have a C19 patient at home, there's no need to disinfect the surfaces at your house. 5- Package cargo, gas pumps, shopping carts or ATM does not cause infection. Wash your hands, live your life as usual. 6- C19 is not a food infection. This is associated with drops of infection like flu. There is no demonstrated risk that C19 is transmitted by ordering food. 7- Sauna sessions don't kill C19 viruses that broke into the cell. 8- You can lose your smell with a lot of allergies and viral infections. This is a non-specific symptom for C19. 9- Once at home, we don't need to change our clothes urgently and shower! Purity is a virtue, not paranoia. 10- C19 virus doesn't hang in the air. This is an infusion infection that requires close contact. The air is clean, you can walk through the gardens (keeping your protection distance), through the parks. 11- C19 does not distinguish race or religion, it is transmitted to all persons. 12- It is sufficient to use normal soap against C19, not necessarily antibacterial soap. The virus, anyway, is not a bacteria. 13- You don't have to worry about your food orders. But if you want more processed, you can heat them up a little bit in the microwave. 14- The chance to bring C19 home with your shoes and as a result , of getting sick is the same as being struck by lightning twice a day. I've been working against viruses for 20 years - drop infections don't spread like that!! 15- You can't be protected from the virus by taking vinegar, sugar, juice and ginger! 16- Wearing gloves is a bad idea; the virus can accumulate into the glove, it can easily be transmitted if you touch your face. You better wash your hands!!!" Hassan BELI - Psychologist: 'Look, make someone 70 years old watch the news with disasters every day, with the message: "It will come to you too! He'll come to you! He'll come to you too!". The man will die in a few months. These programs degrade our immune system through stress and anxiety. Don't look at the medical teachers who became earthquake teachers! I guess there's not much more to say. I won't share anything about this epidemic anymore. Repeating the same things only destroys our quality of life." POSTSCRIPTUM : A merchant meets the Plague on his way. He looks at the plague alarmed and asks: "Where are you going?" "Baghdad." "How many people will you kill?" ask the merchant again. "Not many, only 5000 people," replies the plague. Time passes and the merchant meets the plague again in his way. I had already heard that 60,000 people had died in Baghdad because of the plague. "You told me you'd kill 5000 people! Yet you killed 60,000 lives," he angrily tells the plague. The plague responds calmly and said : "I killed 5000 people. The others died of fear'
