Be careful. stay safe.

As long as my hometown doesn’t get a case, I’ll be fine, I have to wear a mask and gloves to work tomorrow, my mom’s idea, not mine, but at least I get to see what it’s like to be Michael wearing a mask ever where he goes.

Yeah, in this time it is crucial that everyone learns about how to obtain valid / quality information from the media. The media are very important, always have been. But since social media arrived in our society, it becomes harder and harder to be media savvy.

This is a good time to learn, especially for the children and young people. Educational institutions (and everyone who has knowledge) should focus on this issue now and teach people how to navigate through the massive stream of media publications, news, ...

In my opinion social media made things worst. yeah it can be helpful at times. but it really made things bad. to be honest with you no media is good. if you want real good info you have to look deep hard for it.

I tend to stay away fake info and do my research before anything. though, like the old saying goes. don't judge the book from it's cover.

Yes, all those of us with certain health issues have to be extra careful, old or young. I have asthma as well. Not the severe kind, but I get dreadful coughing spasms (due to allergies, cold air, dust, for example...). I never knew it was classified as a form of asthma until last year.

My mom is 72 and has severe allergies, my Dad is 73 and has severe heart issues :( So they are even more at risk.

Thankfully, they live in the countryside and are okay with staying to themselves, mowing the lawn and raking the flower beds in their garden :laughing:

They perfectly fine and aokay as long they don't stay out long and wash their hands. also they don't have contact with many people.

COVID-19 is not like the flu and uninformed influencers and celebrities really need to stop saying that. They have some symptoms in common, but COVID-19 has a much higher fatality rate and it's a lot more contagious. A person with the flu would end up infecting less than 30 people if it was passed on 10 times. A person with COVID-19 would end up infecting 59,000 people if it was passed on 10 times. The incubation period is much longer with COVID-19, so you could be walking around infecting others for as long as two weeks before you even show symptoms. This is why quarantine and social distancing is so important, but a lot of people aren't taking it seriously. Selfish idiots are going to be responsible for crippling health services and killing thousands of people.

If it's safe for you to do so then take vitamin C and vitamin D supplements to help your immune system. You can also boost your health by eating fruits and vegetables, getting adequate sleep, and doing some kind of exercise every day &#8212; even if you're stuck indoors. Most importantly, follow your government's instructions and stay at home as much as possible.

As was mentioned earlier in this thread over 80% of people who get the virus will either have no symptoms or mild symptoms which can be managed at home until you recover, so don't panic, just stay informed and alert and keep in touch with your loved ones.

In eternal paradise with Michael

Even he knows he has to fight it and fought it real good until the virus is vanquished from his body while in quarantine. Keep fighting it man.


As long as you don’t go anywhere for social outing, you’re much safer at home. But as for me I can only go out for if I wanna shovel snow off or take my family’s dog out. As I mentioned previously about my relatives, my mom got groceries for them and dropped them off, because they self quarantined because they were at a trip to Florida.

Well in my case I only have fresh water fish and 3 female cats as pets. And those cats are strictly indoor cats only. And where I live in Pennsylvania we hardly got any snow this year. And the only human friends I have is myself, my dolls, and the sims in my Sims games.

I agree. but just because i have depression etc. i still like to get fresh air every now and then. follow by going out and have some fun maybe enjoy some life sometimes. maybe if it is just 15 mins-30 mins etc. sunshine is important for people who has depression.

I understand what you mean though. i'm very to myself person too. but i still enjoy company and fresh air sometimes.

Sunshine is all good and great if you live in an area that always gets a lot of it. Where I live I don't have that all too much. And what is outside for me to enjoy? When I can't drive thanks to my disabilities that I have. So I can't get my mother and stepfather to take me to places that I want to go to. It is always where they want to go to. The only friends I ever have are myself, my 3 cats, my fresh water fish, books, video and computer related games, the sims in my Sims games, and all of my dolls and stuffed animals. I live in a town that has nothing fun to do. All of my favorite stores and other places has since permanently closed up. And all the movie theaters where I live only shows stupid boring Hollywood made movies that I really hate with a passion. I only love and prefer Bollywood and other Indian made movies only. The only Hollywood movies I really prefer and love are from Hollywood's Golden Era. Most especially Hollywood's silent movie era that I really love the most. So my idea of fun is just staying at home playing with video, computer, and iPad games. And watch you tube videos. Since thanks to my depression over what happen to Michael. I sadly can no longer do the 2 things I used to really love to do the most. And that is watching him and listening to him. Not unless I want to suffer from another anxiety or panic attack.:boohoo

he sudden loss of smell in otherwise asymptomatic adults may be a sign that they are carrying coronavirus, and could be candidates for self-quarantine.

That&#8217;s according to British ear, nose and throat experts, who are calling on clinicians to keep watch for these symptoms in an effort to slow the spread of the disease. This could be a particularly important consideration for those who don&#8217;t meet criteria for COVID-19 testing, they stated.

&#8220;[We] might be able to reduce the number of otherwise asymptomatic individuals who continue to act as vectors, not realizing the need to self-isolate,&#8221; wrote Claire Hopkins, BMBCh, president of the British Rhinological Society, and Nirmal Kumar, president of ENT UK, in a joint statement released Friday.

The loss of smell (anosmia) is not uncommon in viral illnesses such as influenza and other coronavirus strains, wrote Hopkins and Kumar. Nevertheless, they cited &#8220;good evidence&#8221; coming from colleagues in hard-hit South Korea, China and Italy that there is a high incidence of the problem in COVID-19 patients.

Colleagues are also reporting increases in the number of patients presenting with anosmia and no other symptoms, the specialists claimed. In South Korea, where testing has been more widespread than in other countries, agnosia was a major presenting symptom in 30% of patients with mild confirmed cases, Hopkins and Kumar reported.

Hopkins suspects that in her own practice, the growing numbers of patients under age 40 who experience anosmia and eventually test positive for COVID-19 are hidden carriers who are unwittingly spreading the virus.

&#8220;Unfortunately, these patients do not meet current criteria for testing or self-isolation,&#8221; she wrote.

Identifying asymptomatic cases is perhaps nowhere more important than in eldercare facilities, where COVID-19 can spread quickly and put the most vulnerable at risk. But access to testing for staff and residents has so far been limited or unavailable, even when the virus is known to have entered a facility, the Washington Post reported on Saturday.

&#8220;One worker, if infected, can become a super spreader,&#8221; researcher Lauren Ancel Myers, Ph.D., from the University of Texas at Austin, told the news outlet.

Anosmia can linger in patients after recovery from viral illness, according to Fifth Sense, a charity for people affected by smell and taste disorders. It has recently posted guidance on the condition and COVID-19.

"Those who are able, are we going to take our brothers and sisters in? Or are we going to leave them on the street," Lionel Richie tells PEOPLE

In March 1985, Lionel Richie, Michael Jackson, Cyndi Lauper, Kenny Rogers, Diana Ross and more than 40 other A-list recording artists came together to sing “We Are the World.” The cause: African famine. The sales: $63 million. The chorus: “There’s a choice we’re making, we’re saving our own lives.”

Those words became part of a unifying, legendary anthem. Because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, and the 35th anniversary of the release of the hit song, that chorus is on Richie’s mind today. He wrote the song with Jackson.
“That line,” Richie, 70, tells PEOPLE exclusively, “came about as Michael and I were sitting there talking. We said, you can either say, ‘I’m saving my life’ or ‘We’re saving our lives.’ ’We Are the World’ is a statement we wanted to make. What do we do to save our own?”

Richie, like many Americans, is sheltering in place with his loved ones. “We are all hunkered down. Family is the key to this. It is the soother,” he says.

While at home, also like many Americans, Richie is thinking about the state of the world. Today he’s also thinking about the passing of his friend and mentor Kenny Rogers. “I must admit, every once in a while, God has to do something to get us back on track,” he says.

The American Idol judge acknowledges we have been living in such a divisive time. “We were back to there are ‘those people’ and ‘those people.’ If you find yourself saying ‘those people’ then you are not thinking properly,” Richie says.

This moment of crisis has made him stop — and step back for a wider look. “What happened in China, in Europe, it came here. So if we don’t save our brothers there, it’s going to come home. It’s all of us. All of us are in this together,” he says.

Ten years ago, a version of “We Are the World” was released to assist earthquake victims in Haiti. This month, 35 years after the song’s release, Richie is contemplating the unity music can bring. (Not to mention the badly needed charity funds.)

“Two weeks ago, we said we didn’t want to do too much [about the song] because this is not the time to sell an anniversary. But the message is so clear,” he says.

Richie says that since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, he has thought about writing a different song. (A group recording in one place together like for the 1985 song is obviously not possible during shelter-in-place orders and self-isolation.) “But every time I try and write another message, I write those same words,” he says.

Pray won't fade away Michael. Give us faith to believe, to be strong and to face all these injustice.

You´re right. I don´t read or see what the media are saying because it makes us feel even worse. It´s "amazing" how much they exagerate and try to cause the panic in the population. In my country the flu killed last year 3 thousand people and they don´t speak about that. But this virus (it´s horrible, yeah), but they make it even worse, like there´s no way out. It´s like everybody is dying from the virus. They don´t speak about the ones who recovered and there´s many!!! It´s more people recovering than the ones dying.

The media always tends to scare people when they mention the outbreak happened in their country. They were supposed warn people but tell em to keep their cool and calm down at the same time, but they failed assure em’ to remain calm cause people to be idiots by hoarding the essentials we need and the pharmacies limits 1 sanitizers per customer and jacked up the price.

Same here! They say to keep it cool and not panicking BUT at the same time they make us feel scared! Also these situations always bring the bad in people. They attack the supermarkets and take everything they can! Bunch of hoarders and rude people!

Oh and by the way there is a subject that no one is talking about at least in my country (Portugal): The homeless. Our prime minister said (which I find it very sad by the way), that the homeless are in a better situation because they live on the street and the get to catch fresh air. I mean, what the ****?! They are saying that we must stay home and only take little walks but with the homeless is okay to stay outside?! No one is taking a stand about their situation. I think they too should get help and they should find a place for them to be while this virus is around there. I mean aren´t the people?!

The media always been a load of crap. funny to realize they can die too but they gonna keep making fake lies etc because....???? screw the media especially what they did to Michael etc.

we shouldn't panic but we do need to take it seriously. when this virus first started I didn't take it seriously. now i'm am. people who not taking it seriously by now don't want to take it seriously. I really don't feel sorry for anyone who goes outside for no reason. people been told to stay in house for 100 times already. if they still go out for no reason then honestly they wanted to catch it anyway and probably die.

I am thinking about this, too. In Berlin, e. g. all charity points of meeting for homeless people (where they can rest and shower and drink something warm) are closed (if I got that right).
