I read today that it has already mutated at least twice so there are now 3 strains. The first mutation is supposed to be less aggressive than the original, but I could find no information on the third version.
Try looking up info on Pure Oxygen shampoo... Not necessarily in direct relation to the corona virus, but in general - with hydrogen peroxide as an active ingredient, I believe it has some disinfecting abilities.Since pets can be contaminated with this virus getting on their skin and fur, I have wondered how it would be possible to disinfect a dog? I know it's a crazy thought, but I'm curious. Anyone have any ideas?
??If this thing takes off worldwide, just doing the math, a staggering 152 million people could die based on the percentages we have today. However, I do think the numbers could be skewed with under reported infected.
So..yeah...just wash your hands. Especially if you are out of toilet paper.
I think folks should be concerned ( at least to point )...there really are way to many unknowns at this point- when you see news about deaths on the west coast and yet no idea how the virus was contracted....it's a part of everyone's day to day lives that we are out in public places-getting groceries-shopping- libraries-churches---all potential places for someone to be carrying the virus and maybe not even know...I think about carrying the dogs in for routine vet checkups ...the potential is there for a human OR pet to be a carrier.....no cases yet in Virginia if it gets here I'll likely change the way i do some things day to day...I typically err towards the side of caution so we've got a decent amount of people and dog food....I hate to think about any shortage of necessities though, 'cause I've been through hurricanes---then power outages--followed by price gauging--I don't think I'm ready to pay $10 for one roll of toilet paper....again no sense in panic that helps no one....but prepared AND aware is smart...I agree there really are to many unknowns right now...When thinking of how to disinfect a dog, I was actually concerned about pets from people who die from this virus. What would happen to those dogs, cats, birds, etc. that lived with those people? If no one was left to care for them, do your suppose they would they be euthanized to prevent spreading the illness?
Too many questions and too few answers at this point. I know, I worry too much.
Part of the reason we get less colds in the summer is people are outside. Winter time we are all stuffed indoors so when someone starts sneezing and hacking we are more likely to walk into it.corona virus can't survive long in warm weather
Is this factual or supposition? People certainly get colds in the summer, not as often, maybe, but it does happen. So little is know about this particular virus that I doubt anyone knows if it will still be around in summer.
