We are confronted with a worldwide pandemic, for which the
experts say an anti-viral vaccine for it is perhaps going to take another
year to develop and an even longer time to protect a sufficient percentage
of the entire worldwide population to cause “herd immunity” to take
place. So, a person must use what my wise grandmother often urged me
and others to do: Use “common sense.” This is a real challenge when the so
called “experts” cannot agree on simple measures such as the efficacy of
wearing a face mask.
Since the disease is said to spread from person to person through droplets
of infected exhalations, i.e. coughing or touching things, I keep
remembering an early television commercial that doing something “won’t
hurt.” If called to visit any medical facility, even a physician’s waiting
room for any reason, I would think that an excess of caution should prompt
you to wear one.

ethyl alcohol, when hand washing regularly is impossible or inconvenient

nose. They should know this is impossible.
Another difficult thing for us is avoiding contact with large groups of
All I can say is “good luck” with that. We are not meant to be hermits.
Just keep in mind that the choices we make in this regard are important.
Panic should not be one of them. Actually, the chances of dying from
coronavirus is far less than our being killed in a vehicle accident.
