New Coronavirus (previously known as 2019-nCoV)
Dis-ease Prevention, Maintenance, and Cure
|The World Health Organization says 14 days is the maximum incubation period for 2019-nCoV (Novel |
Coronavirus given the official name "COVID-19) by the WHO on Feb 11, 2020) and declared a global
pandemic on March 11, 2020. It's the recommended period for someone to remain self-quarantined or
isolated if they think they have been exposed to the virus. Please note that for the current pandemic
references to Coronavirus and COVID-19 are talking about the same virus. Remember: Prevention is
100% better than the cure.
Note: Throughout there are references to World Health Organization (WHO) and the Center for Disease Control (CDC), that
many believe propagate fraudulent information. However, there are many scientists contributing to these organizations
that are providing relevant and truthful information that may be valuable in our fight against current and future
diseases. My position is use what is valuable and leave the rest! Bless!
|Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more |
severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory
Syndrome (SARS-CoV). A novel Coronavirus (nCoV) is a new strain that has not been previously identified in
Coronaviruses are zoonotic, meaning they are transmitted between animals and people. Detailed
investigations found that SARS-CoV was transmitted from civet cats to humans and MERS-CoV from
dromedary camels to humans. Several known Coronaviruses are circulating in animals that have not yet
Common signs of infection include runny nose, fever, cough, respiratory symptoms, such as, shortness of
breath and breathing difficulties. In more severe cases, infection can cause pneumonia, Acute Respiratory
Distress Syndrome (ARDS), kidney failure, and even death. (Note: Some common signs are consistent with
'known' seasonal colds and/or flus; however, in the current pandemic environment, it is better to error on the
side of caution and assume Coronavirus infection and start suggested 'Coronavirus Cocktail' treatment
regiment immediately. Hit it early, hard, and often to minimize its effect on the body.)
Standard recommendations to prevent infection spread include wearing medical grade N95 mask
(preferred) or non-medical grade mask when in public or confirmed infected, regular hand washing,
covering mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing, and thoroughly cooking meat and eggs. Avoid close
contact with anyone showing symptoms of respiratory illness such as coughing and sneezing

|How dangerous is it?
As with other respiratory illnesses, infection with 2019-nCoV can cause mild symptoms including a runny
nose, sore throat, cough, and fever. It can be more severe for some persons and can lead to pneumonia or
breathing difficulties. More rarely, the disease can be fatal. older people, and people with pre-existing
medical conditions (such as, diabetes and heart disease) appear to be more vulnerable to becoming
severely ill with the virus.

|Who are the primary targets of Coronavirus (COVID-19)?|
|The primary target of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic are those who are less fortunate, live in
'Urban' (population condensed) communities, and those with underlying medical conditions (co-morbidity):
- Front-line workers (Essential workers)
- Health Care and Hospital Workers
- Emergency/ICU staff
- Custodians, etc.
- Bus Drivers
- Train Operators
- Grocery store workers
- Truck Drivers delivering essential produce/goods for community residents (Judy & Curtiss - my
sister and brother-in-law shoutout)
- Pre-existing conditions (Co-morbidity)
- Heart Disease
- Lung Disease
|Once a communicable/infectious dis-sease is contracted/confirmed, it is important to isolate/quarantine|
self/patient and take additional preventive precautions when attending to the needs of the patient.
|Controlling infection in health-care settings|
|Health-care workers should always take standard precautions when caring for patients, regardless of the |
their presumed diagnosis. These include basic hand hygiene, respiratory hygiene, use of Personal
Protective Equipment (PPE) (to block splashes or other contact with infected materials), safe injection
practices and safe burial practices.
Human-to-human transmission of the Coronavirus is primarily associated with direct or indirect contact
with breathing/coughing droplets with virus and touching surfaces with the virus and then touching the
face/nose/eyes. Transmission to health-care workers has been reported when proper infection control
measures have not been observed.
It is not always possible to identify patients with Coronaviruse early because carriers of the Coronoavirus
may be asymptomatic (i.e., symptoms may not be visible). For this reason, it is important that health-care
workers apply standard precautions consistently with all patients – regardless of their diagnosis – in all
work practices at all times. These include basic hand hygiene, respiratory hygiene, the use of Personal
Protective Equipment (PPE) is highly suggested due to risk of spread by infected person) through splashes
and/or contact with infected materials), safe injection practices and safe burial practices.
Health-care workers caring for patients with suspected or confirmed Coronavirus should apply, in addition
to standard precautions, other infection control measures to avoid any exposure to the patient’s blood,
body fluids, and/or direct unprotected contact with potential contaminated environment (e.g., surfaces or
materials such as clothing and bedding). When in close contact (within 1 metre) of patients with
Coronavirus, health-care workers should wear face protection (a face shield with medical mask or a
medical mask and goggles), a clean, non-sterile long-sleeved gown, and gloves (sterile gloves for some
Laboratory workers are also at risk. Samples taken from suspected human cases for diagnosis should be
handled by trained staff and processed in suitably equipped laboratories.
WHO provides expertise and documentation to support disease investigation and control.

|Basic protective measures against the new Coronavirus (COVID-19)|
|How virus transmits?
Japanese captured it on powerful camera.
|(1) Shelter in Place|
Shelter in place (i.e., stay home) is the normally the best protection against contracting the virus.
Why? If you stay home and are not exposed to people outside your immediate family, then you have a very
low risk of becoming infected. However, most people have to venture away for their home to obtain food
or seek medical help, etc., so it is imperative that the remaining actions below be strictly followed to
Wash your hands frequently
Wash your hands frequently with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand rub if your hands are not
Why? Washing your hands with soap and water or using alcohol-based hand rub eliminates the virus if it is
on your hands.
Practice respiratory hygiene
When coughing and sneezing, cover mouth and nose with flexed elbow or tissue – discard tissue
immediately into a closed bin and clean your hands with alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water.
Why? Covering your mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing prevent the spread of germs and viruses.
If you sneeze or cough into your hands, you may contaminate objects or people that you touch.
Maintain social distancing (physical distancing)
Maintain at least 2 metre (6 feet) distance between yourself and other people, particularly those who are
coughing, sneezing and have a fever.
Why? When someone who is infected with a respiratory disease, like Coronavirus, coughs or sneezes they
project small droplets (e.g., micro droplets) containing the virus. If you are too close, you can breathe in the
virus and become infected.
Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth
Why? Hands touch many surfaces which can be contaminated with the virus. If you touch your eyes, nose
or mouth with your contaminated hands, you can transfer the virus from the surface to yourself.
If you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early
Tell your health care provider if you have traveled in an area in China where Coronavirus has been
reported, or if you have been in close contact with someone with who has traveled from China and has
respiratory symptoms. (1) If limited or no access to professional medical care and not already following
the CCC Regiment, please initiate CCC regiment immediately.
Why? Whenever you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing it’s important to seek medical attention
promptly as this may be due to a respiratory infection or other serious condition. Respiratory symptoms
with fever can have a range of causes, and depending on your personal travel history and circumstances,
Coronavirus could be one of them.
If you have mild respiratory symptoms and no travel history to or within China
If you have mild respiratory symptoms and no travel history to or within China, carefully practice basic
respiratory and hand hygiene and stay home until you are recovered, if possible.
As a general precaution, practice general hygiene measures when visiting live animal markets, wet
markets or animal product markets
Ensure regular hand washing with soap and potable water after touching animals and animal products;
avoid touching eyes, nose or mouth with hands; and avoid contact with sick animals or spoiled animal
products. Strictly avoid any contact with other animals in the market (e.g., stray cats and dogs, rodents,
birds, bats). Avoid contact with potentially contaminated animal waste or fluids on the soil or structures of
shops and market facilities.
Avoid consumption of raw or undercooked animal products
Handle raw meat, milk or animal organs with care, to avoid cross-contamination with uncooked foods, as
per good food safety practices.

|Infectious diseases can easily spread between employees and throughout your workplace. If one member of
your team gets sick, they’ll need to take precautions to make sure they don’t infect the rest of your staff.
Some diseases can spread faster than others, especially during a massive outbreak when scientists are still
trying to figure out how to best contain the virus.
China is currently dealing with the outbreak of a new Coronavirus with some cases spreading to the U.S.
Coronaviruses are a special group of viruses that affect predominantly mammals and birds. They tend to
cause respiratory problems in humans with symptoms resembling the common cold, but some forms of
Coronavirus can be much more serious. The following statement no longer applies: The chances of those in
the U.S. contracting the Coronavirus remain extremely low, however the government has restricted all non-
essential travel between the U.S. and China to limit the spread of infection.
Regardless of how this new Coronavirus evolves over the next few weeks and months, your business needs
to protect itself from the spread of respiratory illnesses and other infectious diseases. Without proper
hygiene and the right safety equipment, a simple infection could easily spiral out of control, putting some
members of your team out of work for days or weeks on end.
Whether it’s a new illness or just a case of the common cold, use these tips to prevent the spread of disease
and keep your team as healthy as possible.
Personal Hygiene Tips and Reminders
To prevent the spread of germs and other illness-causing bacteria, you and your team will need to practice
proper personal hygiene. Germs tend to live on the skin and hands. You and your colleagues may touch
dozens, if not hundreds, of different surfaces throughout the day.
That’s why it’s important to wash your hands frequently throughout the day. Wash them for at least 20
seconds using soap and water. Make sure you cover all surfaces when washing. If you haven’t had a chance
to wash your hands, avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth.
If someone is sick, avoid touching their hands or getting too close. You can always greet them with a wave
instead of shaking their hand.
When you don’t have access to a sink with soap and water, you can also use alcohol-based hand sanitizer
gel to quickly remove germs and bacteria throughout the day. You can carry around a packet of wipes on
your person or install a series of sanitizer dispensers around your workplace. Make sure you keep
dispensers at eye level, so they stay visible.
What to Do If You’re Feeling Sick
Some of your workers are bound to get sick from time to time. Encourage your staff to speak up if they’re
feeling under the weather. Sick employees should stay home from work whenever possible to reduce the
spread of infection. Send some of your employees home early if they are having health issues. (1) Start CCC
If you are suffering from flu-like symptoms, try to avoid close contact with others and encourage your
colleagues to do the same. Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. Then,
throw the tissue away and wash your hands with soap and water or hand sanitizer gel. Be sure to clean and
disinfect any surfaces you may have touched throughout the day.
The chances of one of your team members coming down with the Coronavirus remain extremely low,
unless they’ve traveled to China recently. Symptoms of the Coronavirus include fever, coughing, shortness
of breath, trouble breathing, body aches, sore throat, vomiting, and diarrhea. Anyone with these symptoms
should visit their doctor or an urgent care clinic as soon as possible.
There’s currently no cure for the Coronavirus, but most people with a human Coronavirus will recover on
their own. If you or one of your colleagues is suffering from flu-like symptoms, take over-the-counter pain
and fever medications. You can also use a room humidifier or take a hot shower to help ease your sore
throat or cough. You should also consume plenty of fluids and get lots of rest when combating the cold or
Protecting Yourself from Infected Patients
Health care workers and other types of professionals working near those with the Coronavirus need to take
extra precaution to make sure they don’t get infected. Care providers often need to work near their
patients, so the rules mentioned above may not apply.
In addition to regularly washing their hands with soap and water, health care workers and other
professionals will need to wear respirator masks when dealing directly with Coronavirus patients. You’ve
probably seen hundreds of Chinese citizens wearing face masks on the news to prevent the spread of
infection, but simple cloth masks can only do so much to prevent infection.
The CDC recommends wearing a N95 respirator mask, a common type of industrial face mask. These
respirators filter out 95 percent of particles at least 0.3 microns in diameter. These face masks need to be
individually adjusted to make sure they fit correctly. There should not be any gaps or openings between the
lining of the mask and the person’s face.
Most germs and bacteria spread through the air. Wearing a respirator mask will be your first line of defense
against the spread of infection. Look for high-quality respirators with built-in filters, full face masks, and
other accessories for added protection on the job. You can also invest in a fit testing kit to make sure all
your masks fit properly.
The Coronavirus continues to spread throughout various countries around the world. Reducing the spread
of germs and bacteria will help keep your team as healthy as possible. Talk to your employees about the
tips mentioned above and post personal hygiene signs and reminders around your workplace. You and your
team can work with more peace of mind when you have access to the right safety gear.

|The Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19 ~ The Coronavirus official name given by the World Health Organization
(WHO) on Feb 11, 2020) is real and spreading as a pandemic around the globe. Many believe the virus is a
biological weapon, others believe that it a result of 5G technology, some believe both, while others fall
somewhere in between natural event to full out conspiracy. Either way, people are really dying from it!
Yes, many thousands die from known influenza virus each year; however, COVID-19 is a mutation of the
Coronavirus and is extremely contagious and harmful to the human species. The health care infrastructures
all over the globe are being overwhelmed by the high influx of COVID-19 patients in addition to their
normal critical care cases (e.g., heart attacks, accidents, annual influenza, etc.). We know the virus attacks
people with underlying health conditions (e.g., diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, lung disease, obesity,
|5G Research / Testing Map||
|COVID-19 Pandemic Outbreak (March 2020)|
|Prevention is 100% better than the cure!|
Therefore, our charge is this:
1) Stay protected now: (i.e., Shelter in place, Social distancing, washing hands, wearing masks, etc.) during
the explosion (i.e., preliminary wave) of the COVID-19 over the next several weeks, with the hope that the
health care system stays intact to deal with the residual cases that are sure to follow. All those that do not
get infected during the preliminary wave are still candidates for infection during subsequent waves and will
have a better chance of being supported by the health care infrastructure if it does not disintegrate during
the preliminary wave.
2) Plan ahead: If we are graced by God with a reprieve in the warmer months or between waves, we must
not be complacent, but sure up our own Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) when and if items (N-
95/Medical grade masks, gloves, goggles, alcohol based disinfectants and sanitizers, etc.) become available.
Use available time to:
- Secure N95 medical grade masks. If not available, please secure a non-medical grade masks (CDS
website) or create 'home-made' masks.
- Secure or prepare surface antiseptic solutions for cleaning hands and surfaces. The solution consists
of 1 part 70% Isopropyl Alcohol and 1 part water. This solution can be mixed in a spray bottle for easy
dispensing. Not for internal consumption. External use only! Note: some may prefer to use
natural remedies such as soap and water.
- Secure or prepare air antiseptic solution for disinfecting air in closed areas when taking care of a
suspected or confirmed infected patient. The solution consists of 1 part Hydrogen Peroxide and 1 part
water. This solution can be put in a humidifier, vaporizor, or diffuser for dispensing into the air. Not
for internal consumption. External use only! Note: some may prefer to use natural remedies,
such as burning Sage as a replacement to chemical antiseptic.
|3) Stay Fit: Implement a more stringent wellness program that includes more exercise and healthy eating,
(e.g., reduce/eliminate meat, sugar, tobacco smoking, alcohol, processed foods, fast foods, etc.) that will
make our bodies more healthy and alkaline (i.e., more capable of fending off diseases) and enhance the
strength of our immune system.
4) Long-term preparedness: Learn to prepare meals from items that have a long-term shelf-life (e.g.,
dried and canned goods (e.g., beans, etc.) rather than depending on 'Fast Foods' and eating out, which can
be "locked down" during a pandemic that many are sorely finding out. Learn how to bottle items in
Masonry jars for long-term storage. Stock up on food and water, as close to the event as possible, and have
plans on how to replenish food (grow own food, food delivery service, etc.). In addition, have the necessary
means for preparing foods, delivering health care, and staying warm, in any disaster situation, including
medical supplies, portable gas stove, extra gas, kerosene heater, etc.
5) Long-term Protection: Personal Protective Protocols (PPPr). Term I made up, but this means insure
we are able to perform sanitary in-home protocols, such as, exiting and entering home, receiving groceries,
and taking care for loved ones in the home, should someone get infected. It means set up procedures in our
respective homes on how to isolate and care for an infected loved one in the event medical facilities are not
available to assist. Practicing the various personal protective protocols will help us keep from getting
infected and transmitting to other loved ones in our home.
Personal environment needs to be disenfected: This can be assisted with humidifiers, vaporizers, and
6) Cures, Vaccines, and Treatments:
Cures: My personal opinion, not scientific, is that our bodies will need to go through a series of exposures
to the virus to develop complete natural immunity. However, as we experience subsequent exposures we
will have to continue to mitigate the effects on our body by continuously employing all or parts of the
'Clarke Coronavirus Cocktail' to allow our bodies sufficient time to develop antibodies associated with the
various 'strains' (mutations) of the virus.
Vaccines: Since it appears that a vaccine is going to be prematurely developed, it is highly recommended
that we refuse the vaccine for as long as we are able, until it has proven its safety and efficacy through
proper clinical trials and even then, if not needed, don't take it unless absolutely necessary. Please note this
is my personal belief and each person will have to make this decision for themselves.
The above is not meant to be all encompassing solution or create fear; but as a matter of fact, the more
prepared we are, the less fear we have and the less fear means less stress; which means a stronger immune
system needed for fight or flight!
** Note: ** My personal "Clarke Coronavirus Cocktail" (CCC) treatment regiment is based on the
characteristics of what I know of the virus; heat and humidity slows it down and kills it!: 1) Steam it
out! 2) Smoke it out! 3) Seal it out!
(Note: The following is not medical advice and as stated in the disclaimer, if you feel that you are in
need of medical advice, please see a medical professional. )
Please share with our African Brothers and Sisters around the globe who may not have access to this
information and suggested remedies.
1) Steam it out! (Suppress the viral load in Nasal passage and lungs with steam if you feel a sense
that you have picked up a cold or just want to do a routine steam cleansing) (updated: 04/11/2020)
One method of care is to "Steam It Out"! (Ras Yana (15 March 2020) (mp4) (click here)
'Steam Clean' Nasal Passage: In a small open pot, boil water and mix in a quarter-teaspoon of salt.
- Place a towel over head and get in a comfortably position with face above pot
- Breath in the steam slowly and deeply through the nose and out through the mouth for about 15-20
min. Bare as much steam heat as possible, but don’t burn your nasal passages or face. Children must be
supervised at all times.
- Alternative/supplement: Portable Personal Steamer or Steamy hot shower (15 min) and take deep
The objective is to suppress enough of the virus in our nasal passages for anti-bodies to fight (runny nose,
fever) before the virus moves to the throat (fever + cough), and eventually to the lungs (fever + cough +
pneumonia). If the virus moves to the throat, we must continue to drink hot fluids like spicy soups and hot
teas to continue to suppress the virus. Please note that ‘hot pepper’ soup will enhance the suppression
impact on the virus. In the long-term, a diet that includes regular inclusion of red onions, garlic, peppers,
ginger, and/or other 'hot' spices will help ward off cold and flu viruses.
The purpose of the 'Steam It Out' method is not to raise the body temperature, but raise the temperature in
the nasal cavity where it is cooler and the virus often resides for replication. Raising the temperature in the
nasal cavity will reduce the viral load by suppressing the replication of the virus, allowing our body to
produce sufficient antibodies so we gain immunity to the virus without have a “cytokine storm".
Heat is a tried and true method used by our Elders for fighting colds and influenza (flu), which is also a
virus. Medical 'professionals' put people on ventilators and try various experimental drugs, which is
reactive, and most will tell you only buys a little time for the patient who's lungs are already filled with
mucus (Pneumonia), that in most cases, started activating in the nasal cavity replicating to the throat and
then to the lungs. Be proactive, by suppressing the replication and prevent mucus forming in the lungs by
using the 'Steam It Out' remedy, rather than get on a ventilator that has little to no therapeutic effect on the
virus. This method is going to be crucial for regions (e.g., Africa) around the world that often don't have the
PPE or health care infrastructure to buy time when the virus begins to spread. I hope these remedies will
not be needed, but steam is the one thing that most people around the world are able to afford (water + fire
= steam). My theory has not been tested in a clinical trial to confirm results from a medical perspective, but
no time. Got to go with the Elders on this one!
2) Smoke it out! (Suppress the viral load in lungs with Cannabis) (Disclaimer: This does not apply
to cigarettes or cigars because the tobacco contains carcinogens and irritates the lungs)
This may not be considered an option for everyone, but for those who choose to add this option of the
'cocktail', this is simply smoking Cannabis (Ganja, Marijuana) which serves three purposes: 1) as an anti-
inflammatory agent; 2) as a heat agent; 3 as exercise for the lungs. Taking in deep draws of Cannabis rolled
in paper or preferably in a 'Chalice' or steam pipe, so that the 'hot' air goes directly deep into the lungs.
Breathing deeply expands the lungs and has been identified as a method of a helpful physical therapeutic
for counteracting 'chest tightening' effects of the virus.
Toxic decomposition of therapeutic compounds from cannabis is obtained at the moment of burning of
cannabis herbs and its evaporation. Extraction and inhalation of cannabinoid essential oil significantly
reduces the irritation of the oral cavity that occurs during smoking. Cannabis is probably one of the most
effective anti-cancer drugs in the world, which is shown by numerous studies. Cannabis management
allows active ingredients to stimulate the body’s natural response, greatly reducing the chances of
spreading infections. Inhalation of cannabis purifies sinuses and bronchi. It is even proven that it also treats
(1) Source: https://gardeniaworld.com/index.php/2019/12/02/14-plants-to-clean-your-lungs-and-stop-the-coughing-bronchitis-and-
Externally 'smoke' it out by burning/diffusing herbs and essential oils (e.g., Frankencense, Murrh, Sage,
Eucalyptus, Peppermint, Lemon Grass, Tea Tree, Thyme, Oregano, etc.) within your living environment
3) Seal it out! (Suppress the viral load by reducing receptor cells)
Being of African/Caribbean heritage, we tend to eat 'hot' food. The foods that are inherently 'hot' (such as
garlic, red onions, hot peppers, ginger, spices, etc.), and tend to minimize formation of mucus in the body. It
is my contention that these 'hot' foods should be consumed in 'hot' forms like soups or teas that will allow
the 'heat' to warm the body as it is being consumed. In addition, the spices will digest and enter the blood
stream more easily than solid food, allowing the protective properties of the 'hot' nutrients to 'seal' cells by
making them more alkaline preventing them from being receptive to the virus, while suppressing the viral
load within the respiratory system.
Although heat is a good viral suppressant, so is a strong and healthy immune system, which is strengthened
with proper nutrients we receive from fruits and vegetables. Please consume on a daily basis proper
hydration (e.g., coconut water (preferred due to its inherent nutrients), spring water, purified/filtered
water, etc.), fruits and vegetables with high levels of vitamins A and C. Fruits and vegetables tend to make
the body more alkaline improving its immunity to diseases. Lastly, get plenty of sun to load up on vitamin
D, which is also necessary for a robust immune system. Boost immune system with the following:
Vitamin A: Found in yellow and orange fruits and vegetables.
Vitamin C: Found in fresh fruits and vegetables.
- Tumeric, Sweet Potatoes, Carrots, etc.,
Vitamin D: Sunlight
- Kiwi, Melon, etc.,
- Yellow, Orange, Green Bell Peppers (higher quantities of Vitamin C in that order), etc.,
"Citris Ginger Juice"
- 3 - Oranges
- 2 - Limes (Lemons if Limes not available)
- 1/4 cup - Cane Sugar (Brown sugar if Cane Sugar not available)
- 1 cup Coconut Water
- 1 cup Ginger
|If past is any prelude to the future, the 1918 Spanish Flu, which was one of the most devastating pandemics
in our history, had a seasonality in which it had a preliminary wave in the spring, a decline in the summer,
and came back more virulent (i.e., deadly) in the fall/winter. We don't know if COVID-19 has any of these
characteristics as yet, but I strongly suggest we don't turn the other cheek and hope that it will just go away.
Even if it does break and fades away. Recent history warns us that these types of human pathogens are on
the rise and we should expect them more frequently and possibly more virulent one in the future.
I know people are speculating about how and who started COVID-19. My children and I have all kinds of
theories, but our opinions can be debated and researched later. Even if we think we have some natural or
"built-in" immunity, we must first protect ourselves from the immediate threat until it is throughly
researched and then develop our own 'protective' strategies to defeat whatever comes next.
I repeatedly discuss and practice the above with my family. I think they get tired of me going through it
with them when there is no apparent threat, but as we go through the protocols so we can identify areas for
improvement of which I trust will benefit my family and yours, now and into the future.

|For a lot of job sites, safety masks and respirators are an essential piece of PPE. The lungs are delicate, |
important organs that are hard to repair if they get damaged, and inhaling the wrong chemical can have
devastating effects on other areas of the body as well. Protect yourself from invisible airborne particles by
investing in a respirator or mask suited to your job.
How Masks and Respirators Are Rated
The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) is a division of the CDC. They determine
the ratings that allow people to choose the right mask for the job. Because government agencies determine
ratings for masks, purchasing more expensive brand name N95 masks won’t necessarily provide “better”
The ratings are based on a performance standard. Both the filter material and the relative quality of the
mask fit are factored into whether a mask earns a particular rating. The challenge in determining this is
smoke with 0.3 micron sized particles. How well does the filter media catch these little buggers, and does
the mask fit seal off the path for unfiltered air?
Modern filter media uses a built-in static charge to attract and retain particles as they are pulled through.
Some grades of filter can have this static charge ruined when in contact with oil mist. The letter in a mask’s
name tells you whether or not the mask can resist oil: N masks are not oil resistant, P masks are oil proof,
and R masks are oil resistant.
The number in a rating tells you the minimum amount of airborne challenge particles the mask protects
against: an N95 mask keeps out at least 95% of particles but isn’t oil resistant, and a P100 mask is oil proof
while protecting the wearer from at least 99.8% of particles.
Where to Use Your N95 Masks
N95 masks see a lot of use in industrial and construction applications where dust and liquids are a frequent
hazard. They’re not suited for areas with lead or asbestos particles, gases, oil-based particulates, aerosols,
or some particular healthcare applications: specialized filters, masks, and respirators are needed for those
kinds of work. Face masks are meant to be single-use and disposed of after removal, and they’re not meant
to be shared.
Can N95 Masks Protect Me from a Virus?
The emergence of Wuhan coronavirus (and SARS before that) has a lot of people concerned and stocking
up on N95 masks. Viruses and bacteria are generally too small for a mask to protect against, though they
are almost always in a droplet from a sneeze or cough. The mask will stop the droplets.
Please also remember that your eyes are another pathway, so glasses or goggles may be prudent. Another
good thing about wearing a mask is that it prevents you from touching your nose and mouth! This is a prime
route for the spread of viruses.
If you are the infected person, please avoid the masks that have an exhalation valve. They do breathe easier
than those without, but they allow unfiltered air to escape the mask, and this may not be what you have in
It’s also recommended that you wear a face mask if you have symptoms and are entering a healthcare
facility for treatment, and healthcare professionals would likely benefit from wearing one as well. If you do
wear a mask, choose one that can be fitted to your face, and use the same health and hygiene practices you
would use to prevent the flu (stay home if you’re sick, wash your hands frequently and thoroughly, avoid
close contact with others, and keep the disinfectant handy).PK Safety N95 Respirators and Masks
Choosing the right PPE for your workers and job can seem like a daunting prospect, but it’s a necessary one
to make sure that everyone stays healthy on the job. PK Safety carries a variety of respirators, face masks,
and filters for every worksite need from a variety of trusted brands. Our safety experts can answer your

|Whether by accident or deliberately, Biological attacks and Germ warfares are nothing new to mankind.
Man has produced several viruses and has used them on many occasions to eliminate his fellow men. It is a
known fact that during the 16th century, the Europeans invading the Americas distributed blankets
containing Chicken Pox to the Native Indians, in an attempt to eradicate them from their ancestral
homelands. The US government purposefully injected Syphillis into Africans attending the Tuskegee
Institute in Alabama. The government claimed they were conducting a study on Syphilis, all unbeknownst to
the Africans. The Airmen were injected with the disease from 1932 to 1972, without being given adequate
treatment, even after it was determined that the disease could be countered by treatment. The Germans
released many biological diseases in their internment camps to eliminate their own citizens - the so-called
jews - prior to and during WW II. And the US used a deadly spray known as Agent Orange against the
Vietnamese during the 1960's. But, the most outrageous account is that of the Italians who mercilessly
launched countless aerial bombardments against the blameless Ethiopians in 1935-1936.
Even though the world governing body, League of Nation had outlawed the poisonous chemicals, the
Italians did not hesitate to affixing the lethal weapons to their aircrafts, with the intentions of annihilating
the entire Ethiopian population. In what is obviously the most atrocious war crimes, Phosgene and mustard
gas were used by the fascist Italians to spray people, animals, crops, and water. This is the true holocaust of
the authentic (Jews) Beth Yisrael of Ethiopia. Presently, Italy is being administered a dose of her own
medicine. Numerous Italians are being killed by the global nuisance Corona Virus. There are those who will
say the virus originated in China, but 'Corona' is an Italian word which means "crown". Of course crown is
synonymous with the HEAD. The Italians also beheaded several Ethiopians and some of them even posed
for photograghs while displaying the heads of their victims.
During the 60's and the 70's many diseases were thrown at those living in the Caribbean Islands and
elsewhere: Mumps, German Measels, Chicken Pox, Polio, Hong Kong Flu, Dengue Fever, and a host of other
plagues. With the help of our grannies and home medicines, we were able to overcome. Those grannies are
not here these days however, I am sure this too shall pass. Application of the same old remedies which
those grandmas handed down, our ability to make life-saving decisions, and the presence of the most
valuable Surgeon General, Qedamawee Hayile Silase, and all that concern about COVID 19 shall become
Every briefing given by politician always tend to remind us 'we are in this together'. CAUTION - dont be
fooled and become dependent on them. There was never a time when 'We' included Africans, so I stress the
importance of following the various precautions, and heeding to sound instructions - afterall - Physicians,
heal thyself. ~ Black Heart

|Accelerating / Under-counting COVID-19 Deaths:|
1) Insufficient testing and contact tracing to identify COVID-19 hot-spots
2) Some people dying at home of COVID-19 were not tested for COVID-19 and therefore not counted as COVID-19 death
3) People who may have prematurely died of a comorbidity, but contibuted to by COVID-19
|LET'S THINK ABOUT CORONA VIRUS19|
The experience of passing through hard times enable us to learn to appreciate life for what it does for us.
Hard times give us back hope and confidence; hardship restores enough of mental growth in us, without
which we can lose all sense of direction in life. Common sense cannot work in this period. Common sense is
not a simple thing.
Life has always been a mystery, uncertain, and unpredictable; none of us know how long we shall live. With
the dangerous proliferation of the current pandemic, whose manifestation has detrimentally undermined
our global peace, normal life style, and economies, nobody is indispensable, and it is not necessary to blame
anybody, besides doing something about it. What is the long - term therapeutic solution to the current
Corona pandemic situation ? Can we think about something we should reasonably do to contain and
respond to the paradox of Covid 19 pandemic in a responsible manner? The fact that our deeper
knowledge of what poor decisions were made by the past regimes is fragmented cannot, in any way
discourage us to find a lasting solution to this ugly pandemic. Our failure to desist from blame Culture would
only result in the revolution of the same mistakes. But do we have the ability to make resolute independent
decisions? Do we, as Zambians, have the freedom to think independently, without the intervention of the
Western imperialists? It's obviously a hard fact that the high degree of our indigence, and the paradox of the
Corona pandemic need to be comprehended and be dealt with stringent rational level - headed and
proactive disease - control measures.
Our current precarious health situation deserves much attention the government in office, and every
responsible Zambian. We are all in this together. With togetherness and a common goal of eliminating or
mitigating the visible underlying causal factors hidden in this ugly pandemic, we will be able to reduce the
rise in cases of this pandemic. Our notable and intelligent local virologists, biologists, medical doctors, to
mention but a few, must be supported by the government to enable them deal with ambiguity, make
strategic decisions towards a desired outcome, apply mandate for change, and make reasonable choices
about what to do and how to do it , without disturbance.
Things happen, and when they do happen, it should not be a time to blame anybody. This is the time the
public transport operators need to be given much education about the importance of social distancing and
complying with " face - masking ". What measures are being planned to be implemented in overcrowded
markets, and there any monitoring measures to ensure that the public complies with social distancing?
What is the government in office thinking about the operational airports?
Making reasonable plans, in this regard, would help to influence the future approach we should be able to
use in the event of any strange puzzle we can encounter. This is no time to politicise the issues or promote
character assassinations and trivial offences against anyone; this is a global problem. Instead of quarreling,
as a means of showing how much we are concerned about the pandemic, all political players should just get
on the job in hand, and preclude themselves from getting involved in pointless abstract political arguments
that have no clear solutions.
To solve a problem we have to recognize our share of responsibility. Character assassinations and blaming
one another will never help to solve our pandemic and other economic problems we are facing. Now is the
right time to crack our brains !!!
May Jah Almighty
Bless our world ❣️
