      Link with newest recommendations stolen from someone else's post. Can't find them on the CDC website yet.

              It is essential that the public stay up to date on vital information during the coronavirus pandemic. For that reason, Scientific American is providing free access to all of our COVID-19 coverage: https://www.scientificamerican.com/t...rpHM2bpaja1MjQ

                From FB.

                This was written by a guy who has a PHD in genetics

                PS LONG read..

                Here's a great post to help explain this whole thing:

                Feeling confused as to why Coronavirus is a bigger deal than Seasonal flu? Here it is in a nutshell. I hope this helps. Feel free to share this to others who donít understand...

                It has to do with RNA sequencing....i.e. genetics.

                Seasonal flu is an ďall human virusĒ. The DNA/RNA chains that make up the virus are recognized by the human immune system. This means that your body has some immunity to it before it comes around each year... you get immunity two ways...through exposure to a virus, or by getting a flu shot.

                Novel viruses, come from animals.... the WHO tracks novel viruses in animals, (sometimes for years watching for mutations). Usually these viruses only transfer from animal to animal (pigs in the case of H1N1) (birds in the case of the Spanish flu). But once, one of these animal viruses mutates, and starts to transfer from animals to humans... then itís a problem, Why? Because we have no natural or acquired immunity.. the RNA sequence of the genes inside the virus isnít human, and the human immune system doesnít recognize it so, we canít fight it off.

                Now.... sometimes, the mutation only allows transfer from animal to human, for years itís only transmission is from an infected animal to a human before it finally mutates so that it can now transfer human to human...once that happens..we have a new contagion phase. And depending on the fashion of this new mutation, thats what decides how contagious, or how deadly itís gonna be..

                H1N1 was deadly....but it did not mutate in a way that was as deadly as the Spanish flu. Itís RNA was slower to mutate and it attacked its host differently, too.

                Fast forward.

                Now, here comes this Coronavirus...it existed in animals only, for nobody knows how long...but one day, at an animal market, in Wuhan China, in December 2019, it mutated and made the jump from animal to people. At first, only animals could give it to a person...But here is the scary part....in just TWO WEEKS it mutated again and gained the ability to jump from human to human. Scientists call this quick ability, ďslipperyĒ

                This Coronavirus, not being in any form a ďhumanĒ virus (whereas we would all have some natural or acquired immunity). Took off like a rocket. And this was because humans have no known immunity...doctors have no known medicines for it.

                And it just so happens that this particular mutated animal virus, changed itself in such a way that it causes great damage to human lungs..

                Thatís why Coronavirus is different from seasonal flu, or H1N1 or any other type of influenza.... this one is slippery AF. And itís a lung eater...and itís already mutated AGAIN, so that we now have two strains to deal with, strain S and strain L....which makes it twice as hard to develop a vaccine.

                We really have no tools in our shed with this. History has shown that fast and immediate closings of public places has helped in the past pandemics. Philadelphia and Baltimore were reluctant to close events in 1918 and they were the hardest hit in the US during the Spanish Flu.

                Factoid: Henry VIII stayed in his room and allowed no one near him, till the Black Plague passed...(honestly...I understand him so much better now). Just like us, he had no tools in his shed, except social isolation...

                And let me end by saying....right now itís hitting older folks harder... but this genome is so slippery...if it mutates again (and it will). Who is to say, what it will do next.

                Be smart folks... acting like youíre unafraid is so not **** right now.

                #flattenthecurve. Stay home folks... and share this to those that just are not catching on
