Have you ever thought about how many times you touch things in a day. I never thought much about it until the Corona Virus appeared and has spread beyond imagination.
I’ve had the flu, but thankfully have developed resistance to it over the years. I’ve also had pneumonia and bronchitis when I was younger and a smoker.
Unfortunately, few of us have a natural immunity. The warnings about transmission by touch are scary when I look at the growing numbers of new cases. This number may be exponentially larger considering the rarity of testing.
As a retired person practicing self isolation, I am not worried about touching in my home. My solution to touching when I go out is to wear disposable gloves. I also wear gloves when opening mail or packages.
I believe that taking precautions, washing hands, isolation, and paying attention to the smallest of instances of touching are our best defense.
My heart goes out to the medical practitioners who are fighting this Pandemic on the front line. They deserve our support, prayers, love and thanks for all they do.
