CORONAVIRUS IS HERE
Some are saying that people are overreacting. Others are saying we’re not doing enough.
Just this morning we heard that our show at The McKittrick Hotel has been suspended for the rest of the month.
But what I think is most scary is not the disease itself, but the unknown.
What’s going to happen to our jobs? What’s going to happen to the businesses we buy from (or own)?
Will the government lock everyone down for a 2-week quarantine? What will happen to the economy? And what will happen to our investments if the market keeps plunging?
So many questions and so few answers.
No one knows for sure how serious the Coronavirus really is. Some say it’s deadly, others say it’s not much worse than the flu.
And we keep getting messages in our inboxes about all these sanitizing protocols that companies are following to “keep us safe.”
Well, regardless of where your fears lie, there is one thing I think we could all use a little more of right now, and that’s leadership.
Wouldn’t it be nice if someone just told us exactly what to do – and they reassured us that everything would be OK?
Well , you and I both know that’s impossible because NO ONE has the answers right now.
And when no one has the answers, there’s only one thing we can do: Turn to ourselves.
So… in this difficult time, I have just one request to make of you:
BECOME THE LEADER YOU’RE LOOKING FOR
The new Coronavirus may not show sign of infection for many days. How can you know if you are infected? By the time you have fever and/or cough and go to the hospital, the lung is usually 50% fibrosis.
Taiwan experts provide a simple self-check that we can do every morning: Take a deep breath and hold it for more than 10 seconds. If you do this successfully without coughing, without discomfort, stiffness or tightness, there is no fibrosis in the lungs; it basically indicates no infection. In critical times, please self-check every morning in an environment with clean air.
Serious excellent advice by Japanese doctors treating COVID-19 cases: Everyone should ensure your mouth & throat are moist, never dry. Take a few sips of water every 15 minutes at least. Why? Even if the virus gets into your mouth, drinking water or other liquids will wash them down through your throat and into the stomach. Once there, your stomach acid will kill all the virus. If you don’t drink enough water regularly, the virus can enter your windpipe and then the lungs. That’s very dangerous.
Take care everyone and may the world recover from this Coronavirus soon.

6. On fabric it can survive for 6-12 hours. normal laundry detergent will kill it.
7. Drinking warm water is effective for all viruses. Try not to drink liquids with ice.
8. Wash your hands frequently as the virus can only live on your hands for 5-10 minutes, but – a lot can happen during that time – you can rub your eyes, pick your nose unwittingly and so on.
9. You should also gargle as a prevention. A simple solution of salt in warm water will suffice.
10. Can’t emphasis enough – drink plenty of water!
