Dr. Sue Health Tip Masks and Coronavirus

“Masks probably do provide some protection.”

That’s the latest news from The New York Times

NYTimes on Masks and Coronavirus:

“Masks probably do provide some protection.

They’re particularly effective at keeping somebody who already has the virus from spreading it to others,

and they may also make the mask’s wearer less likely to get sick.

“Coronavirus appears to mostly spread when germ-containing droplets make it into a person’s mouth, nose, or eyes,”

Vox’s German Lopez explains. “If you have a physical barrier in front of your mouth and nose, that’s simply less likely to happen.”

Of course we should give first priority for masks to health-care workers. And there may be no masks available.

What can you do?  You can Make Your Own Mask!

It may not be medical grade – but it is surely better than nothing!

Tie a Scarf around your Nose and Mouth!

(You’ll feel like a Movie Star – The Lone Ranger! )

Or Use a Bra Cup – any size will do!

Fasten with hooks and eyes, snaps or elastic – get creative.

Or cut up an old shirt or pants leg!

(Use your imagination, your scarf, shirt, pants…or bra!)

Fashion Forward  means NewYorkStrong!

You don’t have to live in New York to be NewYorkStrong !

What about TexasStrong? CaliforniaStrong? ChinaStrong ? ItalyStrong?

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is now reviewing whether to encourage Americans to wear masks. That would be a reversal and come after weeks of discouraging mask use. Many journalists, including me, previously quoted the experts who urged ordinary people not to wear masks.

 

Dr. Sue Health Tip Plastic Bags No Gloves – No Problem

Dr Sue shares Health Tips to Cope with Coronavirus

No gloves? No problem! 

Health Tip #1: Wear plastic bags!

We all know it’s best to wear plastic gloves when we touch public surfaces. But what do you do when the stores don’t have them? Besides, gloves and masks (which are in short supply) should be reserved for health care providers and people on the front lines.

What can you do? Get resourceful!

Most of us have plastic bags lying around the house.

Slip on the gloves when you go outside – before you touch buttons, door knobs, railings, revolving doors, money, etc.

Are plastic bags as effective as surgical gloves? Do they replace social distance?

Of course not. But they are certainly better than nothing.

When you come home, take off your gloves and…

Wash Your Hands!

Health Tip #2: Don’t touch your face! Coronavirus (COVID-19) gets in through the mucous membranes. These are mainly located in the eyes, nose, and mouth – near your face. Touching your face is often an unconscious habit, so I put on a scrunchy, and tucked my hair under my cap. The cap reminds me: Don’t Touch Your Face.  

Health Tip #3: Self-Isolate and Social Distance

I stay home most of the time and social distance when I go out. We all need to do this – for ourselves and our community.

Stay Healthy – Stay NewYorkStrong !

Dr. Sue Shares Positive Attitude – Nature & Poetry

Hello. This is Dr. Sue (Susan Horowitz, Ph.D,) I live in Manhattan, New York, the epicenter of our current pandemic. I say “current” because, this too shall pass – especially if we take care of our health – physical and mental.  

It’s March, 2020, early spring – one of my favorite times of year. I’ve been spending lots of time in my apartment. I wanted fresh air and a way to connect to the beauty of nature. Social distancing is important, so I decided to go for a solo walk in a local park – no mass transportation, and no crowds. After a short walk in the park, I came across these beautiful fields of daffodils. (Please scroll down for video).

These golden-trumpeted flowers reminded me of the ending lines from one of my favorite poems: “I Wandered Lonely As a Cloud” by William Wordsworth, written in the early 19th century. The last line of the poem is: “And then my heart with pleasure fills and dances with the daffodils.” Wordsworth writes about how, when he is feeling depressed,  (“in vacant or in pensive mood”),  he remembers the daffodils moving in the wind. But then, in the middle of his depression, he remembers the spring daffodils moving in the wind. The memory lifts his spirits and he feels pleasure as he imagines “his heart…dancing with the daffodils.”

Many of us are feeling isolated and lonely and bored as we self-isolate to protect our health, and the health of our loved ones and community. This is the wise and generous thing to do. It’s easy to become depressed as the public media and worried friends share frightening statistics and stories – – and interpretations that can lead to personal despair.

What can we do?

We can take care of our physical health, and by now, we know what to do (social distance, hygiene, etc.)

We can take care of our mental and spiritual health.

We can manage and limit our exposure to negativity.

We can focus on opportunities for growth and learning, on healthy routines, on hobbies, and on beauty.

We can enjoy the beauty of nature – either in reality (like my solo walk), in memory (like William Wordsworth’s poem), or virtually (in videos, photographs, and text).

I hope you enjoy this video of me and my daffodils!
