Hi, my name is Gloria Seidule and this is Series Two Episode Three of my coronavirus series. Many people are now protesting for their right to go back to work. Many people believe God will protect them. Many people are hungry and unable to pay their bills due to the coronavirus. Many people believe in science and want to continue to self isolate.
Until we can get a cure, one thing is for sure: we all want to help our country and the world win this war against a microscopic virus. Make no mistake, this virus can be seen on a microscope. It wants to invade your body. As a nation. We are trying to decide how we will start at the business of living again. We are deciding in which way we shall enter back into the world.
Please stop and think about these facts. As of this recording, there are around 43,000 deaths in this country due to COVID-19. A minimum of 850,000 people have been confirmed to be infected in the United States. We have not even peaked out yet on these numbers.
Even if you get the virus and survive, according to a Harvard medical school, PhD, there is no evidence yet that people cannot be reinfected. The World Health Organization has cautioned that not everyone who gets COVID-19 develops antibodies or those things that keep your system safe from getting the virus again.
Many viruses lie dormant in your system, meaning the infection never really goes away. It just goes to sleep and then can be reawakened. We don't know yet if the coronavirus will be the sleeping enemy. The only weapon in the world that we have right now to fight this is to stay away from other people, by wearing protective gear and washing your hands. Stay safe out there.
