COVID-19 and a peace of mind

COVID-19 and a peace of mind

We can overcome Coronavirus (If we follow the guidelines)

 CORONAVIRUS facts

Hello Moosh Walks' loyal supporters. This is Olga Kay and I am not here to tell you that we are still in business because it's not the time right now to shop for fun socks. I am here to offer you a peace of mind during this hectic time in our country and the world. (forgive my grammar as English is my second language) 


WHAT IS CORONAVIRUS?

Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV).

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is a new strain that was discovered in 2019 and has not been previously identified in humans. (Information provided by World Health Organization)

WHAT ARE CURRENT STATISTICS?
Current Coronavirus cases worldwide 03.24.2020
Infected: 422, 600

Recovered: 108, 867
Deaths: 18, 716
Information
Seasonal Flu mortality is around 60, 000 cases per year.
Swine Flu worldwide pandemic in 2009 had over 700+ million confirmed cases and over 500 000 deaths. 

How did you protect yourself from the swine flu in 2009? 
(I personally, didn't follow many precautions in 2009 but this time, I am staying self isolated and over sanitizing, and taking this seriously. So please take this seriously while we study how dangerous this virus is) 

WHY IS THERE SO MUCH PANIC?
Because people are terrified. People are terrified because the government needs us to be scared to help control the outbreak. If we weren't terrified, we would not take it seriously and the government would have a lot more on their shoulders. Now that everyone is paying attention, it's easier to control the spread of the outbreak. We need to be terrified to stay at home and help manage the outbreak. Big concern is overwhelming the hospitals with severe cases.
Severe cases are mostly found in older population and people with compromised immune system. To protect them and yourself, practice social distancing for a few weeks. 

WHAT YOU SHOULD DO? 
The best thing you can do is to help stop the spread. If you have it, stay home, if you don't have it, stay home to bring the spread of the outbreak down. Elderly are most in danger when it comes to coronavirus, so keeping them safe is advised. 

  • Wash your hands.
  • Sanitize your home, door knobs, your car interior, your incoming packages and mail.
  • Keep distance with people.
  • STAY HOME.
  • Don't worry about your financial state right now, we are all in it together.
  • Our priority is to not get sick or get someone else sick.
  • Research government assistance for child care, small businesses and other help being offered right now during this crisis.
  • Breathe.
  • Play with your dog or cat or talk to your fish.

My list can go forever but the most important thing is to protect yourself  and your family from the virus. If we all do this, the whole country will bounce back into panic free - coronavirus free mode. 
WE GOT THIS!!!
As our wise owl CARLA would say: "Pay attention to the mistakes that have been made, learn from it and proceed with more knowledge forward."

I've been thinking of creative ways to stay afloat while not being selfish during this pandemic, as a lot of small business will suffer or possibly disappear. I thought: caution will keep us safe but humor will keep us going. So I came up with this solution. I will donate 10% of our proceeds from these humorous t-shirts during this dark time to Global Giving and their Coronavirus Relief Fund. 
If you are able to, please support, it will keep our small business afloat and most importantly your support extends to the entire world surviving this crisis. 
Thank you for your support in advance.
