This virus is much more serious than the flu.  It may kill 1 in 5 infected people over 80 years old.   It kills more men than women.  The risk is highest for those with high blood pressure, sleep apnea, and other medical condtitions. 

 

The virus can be infect you through the air if you are simply near a carrier.  It enters your body through the mouth, nose or eyes.  The virus exists for days on surfaces touched by a carrier.  This means doorknobs, gasoline pumps, elevator buttons, railings, tables and most hard surfaces.  If you touch such a surface, and then touch your face, you can be infected.  Use one-time throwaway rubber gloves from Publix or Harbor Freight and it may save your life.

  

There is no vaccine or cure for Coronavirus.  There are no treatments, except to help with symptoms.  For some the disease may be as mild as a cold, for others it can be severe fatal pneumonia which is very dangerous for the elderly.  Stay home as much as possible during this emergency. Avoid contact with people even without symptoms, because you cannot tell who is carrying the virus.
