Batanes to Tawi-Tawi
With Julmunir I. Jannaral
On the 44th Digital Edition of the Philippine Muslim Today, I finally thought of writing an indispensable and essential information from Batanes To Tawi-Tawi which is the crucial information on COVID19 that was passed on to me by a friend.
I thought this was just an ordinary piece of information usually being forwarded by a Facebook friend. But when I read it I came to realize that it is not only indispensable but likewise most essential just like how significant or importance the “Lugaw” is that became viral to the netizens in the Internet Province.
Hence, it says that seemingly “we will not be able to take the 2nd Phase of Lockdown,” according to the health professionals.
And so they added that due to the collapse of the health system, no less than the health professionals have prepared this message for the people especially you who are among my readers from Batanes To Tawi-Tawi.
They said in case you don’t want to risk going to the hospital immediately; these are the following procedures that one may follow to prevent and stop the Coronavirus from coming in unexpectedly into your body system.
According to the Health Professionals, this is it, on what are the symptoms that will appear from the 3rd after one is infected with this dreaded Coronavirus or COVID19.
The following are the Viral Symptoms in the 1st Phase:
Runny nose or nasal congestion
- Burning eyes
- Burning when urinating
- Feeling feverish
- Scuffed throat (sore throat)
Note: It is very important to count the days of symptoms: 1st, 2nd, 3rd.
- Take action before the onset of fever.
- Be careful, it is very important to drink plenty of fluids, especially purified water. Drink plenty of water to keep your throat moist and to help clear your lungs.
2nd Phase; (from 4th to 8th day) inflammatory.
- Loss of taste and/ or smell
- Fatigue with minimal effort
- Chest pain (rib cage)
- Tightening of the chest
- Pain in the lower back (in the kidney area)
The virus attacks nerve endings;
Note: The difference between fatigue and shortness of breath:
A. Lack of air when the person is sitting- without making any effort- and is out of breath;
B. Fatigue is when the person moves around to do something simple and feels tired.
It takes a lot of hydration and Vitamin C.
Covid-19 binds oxygen, so the quality of the blood is poor, with less oxygen.
3rd Phase- Healing;
- On day 9, the healing phase begins, which can last until day 14 (convalescence).
- Do not delay treatment, the sooner the better!
Good luck everyone!
The Health Professionals added, it is better to keep these recommendations, prevention is never too much!
- Sit in the Sun for 15-20 minutes.
- Rest and sleep for at least 7-8 hours.
- Drink 1 and a half liters of water per day.
- All food should be hot (not cold).
— Keep in mind that the pH (Alkalinity) of the Coronavirus ranges from 5.5 to 8.5.
So all we have to do to eliminate the virus is to eat more alkaline foods, above the acid level of the virus.
1) Bananas, Lime-9.9 pH
2) Yellow Lemon-8.2 pH
3) Avocado-pH 15.6
4) Garlic- pH 13.2
5) Mango-pH 8.7
6) Mandarin- pH 8.5
7) Pineapple- 12.7 pH
There you are my avid or no avid at all my dear readers of Batanes To Tawi-Tawi, this is just one of saying to you that I care for you and Stay Home and Keep Safe 24/7 as well. As the saying goes, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” Meaning, it is easier to stop something from happening in the first place than to repair the damage after it has happened.”
The Benjamin Franklin axiom that “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” is as true today as it was when Franklin made the quote. Although many use the quote when referring to health, Franklin actually was addressing fire safety.
Benjamin Franklin was also a Founding Father and an inventor, scientist, politician, freemason and diplomat. According to the Wikipedia, Franklin helped to draft the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution, and he negotiated the 1783 Treaty of Paris ending the Revolutionary War.
Thus, he famously advised fire-threatened Philadelphians in 1736 that “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” Clearly, preventing fires is better than fighting them, but to what extent can we protect ourselves from natural disasters like the menace of this COVID-19 Pandemic?
