SOCIAL DISTANCING- Pinball Analogy!

Coronavirus is like a game of pinball. The coronavirus is the ball and humans are the pins.

  • For every pin (human) the ball (coronavirus) touches, the pin gets infected with the coronavirus.
  • So now you have pinball with two balls and each pin you touch becomes another infected-ball that can go on and infect other pins. The latest medical information is it may incubate from 14 to 26 DAYS!
  • What is the best way to get these pins from getting infected? By REMOVING them from the table so the balls can’t hit them.
  • That is why SOCIAL ISOLATION IS NEEDED; we are removing the pins (ourselves) so the ball (virus) can’t touch us and infect us.
  • Hospital stories abound on LinkedIn about this reality already!  If we reduce how many of us get sick at once, we won’t all get hospitalized at the same time and therefore there will be enough Intensive Care Unit (ICU) beds and medical expertise available. This will SAVE YOUR LIFE AND YOUR GRANDPARENTS!
  • Social Distancing (COVID-19) at its best! See below 3 MDs article!
    • This also includes hospital dx COVID-19 patient discharge NOT to skilled nursing facilities but use medical judgement which patients sent to hotels or bankrupt “empty” hospitals & SNFs, convention centers, army field hospitals, medical “cruise” ships with the care & support they need! http://bit.ly/2wcg8sA
  • 100 MILLION MASKS CHALLENGE: http://ow.ly/JTAe50yY4GE
    • South Korea flattened the curve quicker when the public wore masks & our USA Health officials and government are asking us to do the same!
  • Dr. Scott Segal & Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine and Health/Government officials state N95 masks need to be reserved for health care workers.
    • The Recommended MASKS for the public have:
      • two layers of heavyweight “quilters cotton” with a thread count of at least 180
      • had thicker and tighter weave
      • Lesser quality fabrics also worked well, as long as they had an internal layer of flannel
      • “You do want to use a woven fabric, like batik,” Segal said, “but you don’t want to use a knit fabric, because the holes between the knit stitches are bigger.”
