    I'm glad I went to Inks Lake on Sunday... It was really nice to get out of the house and hike around. I was planning on hitting up more parks, but I guess that's done.

    Fishing is supposedly still an "allowed" activity. Where do y'all fish that isn't a park or private property?

    My focus has been on minimizing transmission (nosocomial infections) rather than the treatment after the fact, so I am not qualified to comment on the mechanics of how the virus impacts the body or the efficacy of any treatments.

    One of the realities that many cant grasp is that physicians and their medical scientific colleagues often have little background in prevention because their education, training and practices focus on treatment and not prevention. A good analogy is that doctors want to advise patients on nutrition based on the outcomes of poor eating habits. In reality, most have minimal nutrition education in medical school and only a few invest precious time in advanced nutrition education after graduation. A nutritionist or other para health professional is much more qualified on this subject than any doctor, including the Surgeon General.

    Infectious control programs in hospitals are seldom, if ever, headed up by doctors because the reality of how bacteria and viruses move from one person to another is outside the parameters of medicine. This leads to organizations like the CDC issuing control recommendations that may not be the best methods for control. An example if this is that, across the country, institutions have blood borne pathogen kits to clean up body fluids with a sodium hypochlorite (bleach) solution rather than a broad spectrum disinfectant-detergent which would be more effective and far less hazardous.

    So, I limit my comments to what I know and refrain from commenting outside of that. Medical professionals, however, are quick to offer opinions which is why we see all of the contradictory and ever changing flow of information.

    All I have tried to do is to advise people how to stay safe in the face of all of the fear mongering
