Boonlai's Statement

I grew up in a village in Thailand. As farmers, we lived from God’s bounty. Not much in material things, but rich in quality of life. About half of the villagers are family, and I have always been very family devoted. Even now having lived in the USA since 1993, I keep close ties with my family in Thailand.

In the village, we cooperated with our tasks, and helped each other when they needed extra help for a task. Here in the USA it hasn’t seemed common to be like that. I just worked in a sewing factory for long hours, then when married, took care of my family and cooked for church.

But now, with the Coronavirus, I have seen a lot more of people helping people. When I learned that I could help save many lives making masks, I got excited that I could apply sewing skills for such an important task. It’s not about money (but that is needed), but I enjoy giving masks to friends and the needy, just because they need them. It also helps to know that my husband has designed the masks to be so good at slowing the spread and maybe even saving some lives.

I love to study my Bible because it is like food for my well-being. These are scary times, and it helps us when we know that we can trust God to help us find ways to make things better.

Please review the different colors and patterns to see if you can find what will help you proudly show your respect for this hidden enemy, and how we cannot know where it might be... and tell me how you like them... or make a suggestion.

Please be safe and take good care of yourself and your loved ones.

It’s important to remember that an infected person will continuously contaminate their surroundings to whatever extent they are not keeping their bodily fluids to themselves. 

Becoming infected from fomites is an indirect pathway, and although thought to be rare, it is still a true pathway of infection that should not be ignored.

For this reason, hand cleaning and other surface cleaning is still recommended to be done properly, and often -whenever there has been a potential exposure.

As distance decreases, risk increases (but that may not be a linear relationship). Virus particles can be concentrated into droplets or spread out in aerosol clouds. Droplets drop, and clouds spread out, linger, and dissipate.

The virus spreads unless bodily fluids are contained, and the virus is killed or disposed of properly. 

As the virus is passed our direction, we don’t want to receive it. To reduce the risk of receiving the virus into our bodies directly from droplets and aerosols we can employ protective devices. 

The most important protection is a face covering.

There is a range of risk in the things we do. Total isolation provides zero risk of transmission. The risk of transmission increases as we come out of isolation. That means we are taking a risk when we come close to others or touch things they may have contaminated with a virus (fomites).

Common sense says to be safe, we don’t do things that could hurt ourselves or others. Safe behavior includes distancing, cleaning, and the use of protective devices to mitigate risk.

A low dose might be good for you, and a large dose may kill you. Does how much COVID-19 get in you matter? Yes.  It's almost common sense.

Whether a light load with no symptoms or a heavy load, recovering from the infection results in a level of immunity to that virus, and may prepare them for a better defense if they are exposed again.

COVID research updates:

'Love Hormone' Could Hold Key to Treating COVID

FRIDAY, Oct. 9, 2020 (HealthDay News) -- "...so-called love hormone, ...may be worth investigating as a treatment for COVID-19, a new study suggests. ...(factors) indicate that (it) may have potential as a targeted treatment for cytokine storms in COVID-19 patients, the researchers said in a news release from the American Physiological Society."

"Understanding the mechanisms by which (the love hormone) system can be a new immune target is crucial."

Although this hormone therapy can be administered as a drug (with potential side effects), there are better ways to get this important benefit, which we highly encourage. A search on these keywords :'how to increase the love hormone production naturally' can yield a goldmine of encouragement and hope. Here is an article from a woman's perspective that sums up many of the ways to recover the joy of life with others:

Dense cities should brace for long coronavirus outbreaks

"The team’s model predicts relatively short, intense spikes in COVID-19 cases in relatively uncrowded cities where residents stick to their own neighbourhoods rather than mingling freely. In crowded cities, however, people are more likely to have to cope with outbreaks that last longer than do those in the countryside."

Experts Warn of a Possible 'Twindemic'—Here's What That Means

"A twindemic, per the Times, is the possibility of a severe flu season coinciding with a surge in COVID-19 cases. Even a mild flu season is concerning, given that the inevitable serious cases of the flu tax the medical system each year, Amesh A. Adalja, MD, senior scholar at the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, tells Health."

The coronavirus is airborne -- what that means for you

"From what we currently know, the preponderance of the evidence is that transmission is mainly through respiratory droplets and aerosols, with contamination of surfaces playing a limited role in transmission,"
